Summary: I've owned two ReadyNAS products, back when they were still owned by Infrant Technologies. I purchased my ReadyNAS without drives, as I was adding 3TB Western Digital Reds at a later point in time.
Summary: What used to be a great NAS is now no longer useful and seriously alot of work to maintain the device. If you want one time setup and then sit back and enjoy free time look elsewhere. Thecus is a better brand.
Summary: This is out second unit! Works great - easy to interface and has the services you would want for around the house. We did have an older unit go back a few years back, and Netgear sent us a re-furbed unit free - you can't beat that service. Highly recommend!
Summary: I have a ReadyNAS NV+ that has been very dependable over the years. It was time, now, to upgrade for more disk expansion space and newer hardware. I was not disappointed at all. ReadyNAS / Netgear continues to make solid, reliable hardware.
