Speeds could be better, but decent.

J. Hansen, Amazon
29 August 2013
  • Summary: The ReadyNAS has been working well for the past few months. The things I look for in a NAS are 1- Ease of setup and use (how quickly can a new machine see and use the NAS) 2- Speed and 3- Data safety. Ease of use is great with this NAS, just hooked it up to the network and it shows up, ready to go. You can configure it beyond that but for our home use we didn't need to. Adding drives is easy and works well.

Excellent for Small business use

Jarucia Jaycox, Amazon

  • Summary: I utilized this item in conjunction with my parent's small business. I live away from them, so do my occasional work for them remotely. This Netgear ReadyNas has been quite useful in bridging the distance issue. This review combines thoughts from both ends our particular use situation. This ReadyNAS Storage System was very easy to install and is transparent to maintain.

Noisier and slower than hoped,but it works

P. MSakamoto "boy clothes", Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: Pros: 1. I was able to easily set up on my home network and create accounts for each user. This included setting up individual password security, etc. 2. I am "techie" but not an IT pro, yet getting e features to work was not hard. 3. Everthing I cared about worked on the Mac OS. Cons: 1. Much more noisy than I would have thought. The fans are running most all the time. 2. Not as fast as I would have hoped for given 1000BT network and fast devices own.

Impressive, convenient

Laurel, Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: The function of a NAS is to be the big media-storage repository, connected to your home network and available to all your computers. This cabinet holds up to four hard drives, and comes with two already installed. Total of 2 TB, but they're in a RAID configuration, so you only access 1 TB. This means that if one drive fails, you still have all your data.

A non-techie person's review.

Megan Ellinger, Amazon
14 November 2012
  • Summary: I'm one of those people who have a huge amount of data (movies, pictures, music, audiobooks, etc) and I was looking for an alternative to the incredibly annoying online backup I'm currently using. This thing was...nonfunctional for me. A more advanced user than myself (I'm no idiot...I'm just not a computer science/tech person) could perhaps figure it out but the lack of decent manuals or guidance left me fairly clueless.

I Love my Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ v2

Chris D. "Classic TV & Tech Guy", Amazon
17 October 2012
  • Summary: This review has been updated since it was first posted, since Netgear has resolved many issues posted in the initial review. I really do love my ReadyNAS NV+ v2. I love the fact that I have 1 TB of reliable redundant storage added to my local network. I love the fact that while on my local network I can access the files on the ReadyNAS NV+ v2 anywhere within range of my wireless signal.

Very good, easy startup but needs more documentation

D. Johnson "Chi-Town Dale", Amazon
20 September 2012
  • Summary: I started out with the misconception that this unit would add an additional 2TB of space that could be shared between the 3-4 computers on my home network. Was surprised that for such a high price I only added 1TB to my system. I've read that you can shut off the backup system and get the full 2TB but don't really want to.

Simple setup, nice addition to HTPC

Nikki W. "Nikki W.", Amazon
19 September 2012
  • Summary: Installation of this ReadyNAS was extremely simple but I do have some experience working with NAS devices. It worked and was connected to my network right out of the box for me. I had no issues with it obtaining an IP from my DHCP server. Netgear should provide some better documentation for those that are not familiar with a NAS as I could see how someone trying to setup a NAS for a first time could struggle with this.
