Summary: I just got mine a little over a Week Ago. It's a nice little 4 bay unit. It was pretty simple to setup and start using. I installed it into my Closet with the rest of my Hardware. The one thing I didn't know for sure was if my UPS that I already had in my Closet would work with it?!?!
Summary: I have 3 of these and they are all great. I bought my original one before the company was bought by Netgear and they have consistently been supportive of any issues. There is also a very active user group for support.
Summary: I had returned a Dlink 343 for failing to format the array. Got this Netgear NV+ instead. Using four 2TB Hitachi drives. The default setting is to use their XRAID/RAID5 which basically wastes one of the four drives for redundancy. I opted to go for RAID0 ... the drives are warrantied for 3 years...
Summary: Short Summary: Good piece of hardware but under certain circumstances it is slow. This applies to mounting a share internally, using RemoteNAS to access it over the Internet, or accessing the admin web browser.
Summary: There's a lot of detail here and on the web so I won't go into a lot of detail. The bottom line is that the NV+ is inexpensive, built like a tank, and does a better than average job at what I bought it for. Setup was very simple.
Working pretty good so far (read this for simple setup instructions)

Summary: Here are the steps you need to execute to get this device up and running, quite simple. I got the diskless system from pcnation. Pretty decent price. Connected power and ethernet and plugged in two 2TB drives Recognized it right away.
Summary: Installed 4 2TB drives and this NAS device has taken care of all my backup and file storage needs. PROS: Approximately 5.4TB of storage after X-RAID redundancy. X-RAID gives peace of mind that my data won't be lost with a drive failure. No problems streaming video to my TV.
Summary: Overall I'm very happy with the equipment. Very easy to setup and use. It has all the features that were indicated on the functional specification. I found out that it is a LINUX system and found a add-on that allows me to log into the system and look at the data and system parameters from the LINUX...
