Summary: I purchased this almost four years ago and just had my first issue with it - the power supply failed. When I used ReadyNAS tech support, they issued me an RMA with no questions and shipped me a new power supply under warranty. Very happy with the product and the customer service.
Summary: This has been a very reliable NAS - I had a power supply issue at 2 yrs which was replaced free and the support from Netgear was very good, that was 3 yrs ago. I have upgraded memory to 1Gb and put in 4-2Tb drives on RAID 10. This is my Video Drive.
Summary: This unit is installed in a medium network as a storage and backup unit, and it works as it should. This is the 2nd one I have installed on our network. The other is the NAS NV+ v1. Amazon had a great deal on these with the rebate, so I bought one for myself.
Summary: Gigabyte Raid, SATA II, I use 4 1.5 TB drives. I use the default RAID config, so it adds up to 3 TB of data that is also mirrored. You do not have to put in 4 drives, you can start with 2. S.M.A.R.T. monitoring. Powerup is typically slow for NAS boxes but this one isn't so bad.
Summary: Prior to purchasing this unit, I read some of the Amazon reviews like I normally do for these type of products. I decided that some of the reviewers probably don't have a very good understanding of these products and that was their problem.
Summary: The ReadyNAS NV+ is not cheap when compared with other storage options, but you may not be comparing apples to apples. The number of built-in features on the NV+ is quite impressive, and the ease of setup and use is fantastic.

Summary: I have owned mine for 10 months now, am back here to buy another. Will actually buy a 3rd soon to gift to my parents. Why do I love this thing? I used to use USB external hard drives to back-up data, but about 50% of the time after a few years those would die on me, and I have a lot of computers in...
