2 out of 5 eggsDecent product...horrible support/warranty!!

Pros: The NAS chassis is better than the alleged warranty.

Cons: Free tech support is only 90-days, in spite of what the warranty covers. Tech support personnel have attitude problems and are very hard to understand. Products made in China. Where is the good old Made In America brand?

Other Thoughts: Support and warranty are almost useless. Contacted Netgear support via online chat and chatted with their tech (Rene). At one point I took issue with the warranty coverage and asked (twice) to speak with a supervisor, her response was (direct quote), "what's the point, Sir!" I still have a copy of this online chat conversation to prove it. Just FYI to everyone: their manufacturer’s warranty does not include free tech support beyond 90 days. I found this out the hard way; to the tune of $75 (one-time fee). After a couple of days trying to cool my jets, I bit the bullet and paid the feel but had a terrible time trying to understand the tech, who spoke with a strong Indian accent. Come to find out, I paid $75 to find out that 2 (Seagate) of the 4 drives had failed (the other 2 working drives were WD Green) and the solution was to try and clone the drives, with me doing the cloning. They did offer to have this done for an additional $200; however I wasn’t offered a cut of the profits for my part, nor was there was a guarantee they could retrieve all of my data. Am glad I didn’t as I was able to put this information to good use myself. I bought a $50 hard drive cloning machine online (one that copied hidden and system files), plus the cost of two 1-gallon ziplock freezer bags, froze the drives overnight, and started the cloning process inside my chest freezer, shutting the door over the cords. This method successfully cloned the drives and retrieved 100% of the data. NAS is back up and running. This will most likely be my last Netgear purchase. What good is the product if their own manufacturer won't take care of their customer beyond 90 days, without making them pay...again! It appears that Netgear is more interested in making money than making the effort to ensure that I'm a returning customer.

5 out of 5 eggs3 years no problems

Pros: been running 4 Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive for 3 years now with no issues. One of the nice features is additional plugins that can be installed like ssh access

Cons: With the raid set it does run slow reading and writing, but its worth it to have a backup

1 out of 5 eggsGot Unlucky

Pros: I can't think of any pro's except the description of what the device offers is excellent.

Cons: On first boot the device booted up with Bad Firmware error on the LCD. Submitted a support case online (netgear.com). It took netgear 7 + days to respond to my question with links to FAQ's vs. solution. I read the FAQ's before contacting online support.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure I got unlucky with bad hardware. 7+ days to respond to support ticket is not acceptable. I never got the hardware working. Newegg customer service and return process is awesome!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsLZN NAS

Pros: Compact size. Gigabit port. Silver.

Cons: Using my MacBook Pro to set this up was rather cumbersome. Had to reference the ReadyNAS forum numerous times. Setup took a LONG time, but I have 4 Western Digital 1TB drives and synchronization of the drives took 8 hours.

Other Thoughts: I still need to setup the NAS for Time Machine for my MacBook Pro, MacBook, and iMac.

2 out of 5 eggsCould be better

Pros: Cheap and for standard use it is pretty easy to setup. Install the drives and it does the rest.

Cons: Unstable OS. Within the first couple days of tweaking the add-ons and setting up the security, I found inconsistent access to the shares. I originally set it up with domain user security. When I found most share would only let me in around 30% of the time I tried to change the security type to local security. However, the web view was no longer accessible. Scanned ports to find no 80 or 443 port open any longer. Tried reloading OS and nothing happened. Luckily I still had all my files in another location and performed a full reload. Got everything setup and things appeared to be good. Now about a year after setting it up I decided to setup an FTP share, but found I could no longer get into the web management again. Port 80 and 443 are closed again and I have no place large enough to move the files off to completely reload. I have tried OS reload but it doesn't ever actually perform the reload. Netgear 90 support always sucks but is standard for their products.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest spending a little more money and going with a different NAS if you are wanting something you can really count on. I would have given a 1 egg, but the cost and ease of basic setup is nice for those that aren't use to storage solutions. Otherwise, it shouldn't get any eggs. Check the ReadyNAS forums and see how many people have posted about lack of the web interface, "frontview". Without it your toast.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: It sure looks nice. It appears that it should be working but any drive I put in bay 1 shows up as bad so it never completes initializing. I let it sit for 24 hours.

Cons: DOA. If it won't initialize, it's not much good except for sucking up energy

Other Thoughts: I'm going to get a replacement. Hopefully, I'll have better luck.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage with LIES

Pros: None. DLINK 2 bay 321 is far better.

Cons: Netgear lies about the awesome ability to upgrade to larger disks becuase this NAS doesn't support anything above 2TB at max. I will not be buying anymore netgear products. SCAM AND LIES!

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Unit has support for 4 hard drives. Rather quiet when the fans spin down to normal running speed.

Cons: Does not support support hard disks bigger than 1.5TB without use of beta interface software. Interface software feels clunky and offers little in the ways of controlling the volume. It is a trick to get the unit to create a volume in something other than X-RAID. None of the printed documentation,which is very scares except the quick setup guide, includes default password (a very stupid mistake since it would take less than a line). Having been a regular Netgear customer in the past i know it is netgear1 but someone else might not. Though that will change since company has gone a different direction lately. The one of mediocrity, stupidity and laziness.

Other Thoughts: Waste of time and source of frustration. Manufacturer lies about its capabilities by including software that is still in beta stage and is needed to recognize 2TB drives.

Just as a personal remark:

If the software is stable and reliable then it should be escalated to a supported stage instead of remaining a potential loophole to refuse support. This level of "professionalism" should not be encourages by purchasing their products. Buyer beware and stay away.

5 out of 5 eggsLIKE THIS THING NEEDS ANOTHER GOOD REVIEW

Pros: Awesome unit, nothing bad to say about it, pretty much the ideal NAS for anything. Expandability, drive replacement, everything is a breeze (and I work with everything from desktop USB drives to enterprise class SAN systems as well). This is MUCH better than the readynas nv+ V2

Cons: DOES NOT SUPPORT DRIVES > 2TB EACH! Probably will not ever either.

Other Thoughts: We own several of these units and the new V2 units as well, this is MUCH better than the V2, other than the lack of 3TB drive support, this unit is MUCH more reliable, mature, and easy to configure.
