5 out of 5 eggsIt's worth it!

Pros: Bought this to be used primarily as a Plex media server so that I didn't have to keep my PC on all the time. So far it's been working with no real issues, except it stutters for about 2 seconds when i'm watching a 720p movie with transcode subs enabled. I have not tried a 1080p yet.

Cons: Price since I have to write something.

Other Thoughts: Get this if you want speed!

The memory can be upgraded without voiding the warranty, but netgear can refuse to provide support until the original memory is put back in.

The processor can also be upgraded, but may void the warranty if netgear finds out.

2 out of 5 eggsNo New OS Updates!

Pros: These are pretty good NAS boxes especially considering they were introduced a while back.

Cons: Just realize that you will NOT EVER get an OS upgrade. There will only be updates to RAIDiator v4.x *NEVER* an update to v5.x or to the VERY sweet new OS 6.0. Also developers will have to make the conscious choice to continue making Add-On's for the old OS and not just for the new Genie+ marketplace.

And on top of that since Netgear gives no advanced warning on when they will stop offering new stop supporting hardware with new upgrades they may not be the kind of company you want to support.

Other Thoughts: ReadyNAS *was* a pretty great platform and community. Netgear is actively killing it. Netgear employees virtually never reply in the ReadyNAS Forum. As a long tim ReadNAS user (since it was owned by Infrant) it's a sad thing to see.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo months and failing

Pros: Six-bay, good capacity, clean design.

Cons: Cooling fan failing after 60 days in service.

Other Thoughts: I was happy with the unit until the main chassis fan started failing. That in itself could be forgiven if it can be resolved to my satisfaction. But NetGear is unable to send me a simple replacement fan. Instead they want to warranty exchange the unit. That's a problem because they cannot guarantee I won't get a refurbished unit. I bought and paid for a new NAS, not a used/refurb unit that already has a history of some other unknown failure. Not happy with the support. And not sure how I'll proceed with this situation.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Customer Service

Pros: The device seems to have a good feature set the hardware less so.

Cons: Tech support from NetGEAR is worthless.

Other Thoughts: The device is complaining about over voltage on VCC_1_5, They told me it was due to the disks I was using. I replaced the disks with ones on the HCL, same problem. As an Computer Engineer I'm not sure how wrong disks can cause an Over voltage on the power supply.

I'm very disappointed in the hardware and I'm not sure I would trust my business data to this device.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds firmware update for 3TB drives

Pros: Small footprint
Easy drive install
Fast RAID access
Good cooling
Powerful CPU
Good memory (1GB)

Cons: -NIC bonding doesn't appear available (although an option in web interface it is grayed out. Might be PEBCAK)
-Comes with 2 year old firmware (!) that does not support 3 TB drives (although combo deal includes 3TB drives...)

Other Thoughts: Not a big deal to download updated firmware and easy upgrade process. Will update with speed and iSCSI details.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat NAS

Pros: Fast read and write times with apps for everything.

Cons: Newegg got it here fast, but so did they drop the price by 200 after their combo special. If this is regular business for Newegg I will be keeping my distance.

Other Thoughts: Great NAS that can be found for a decent price with 6 bays.

5 out of 5 eggsReadynas PRO 6 is a great NAS

Pros: 6 Bays
Fast processor
hot swappable

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: This was is an upgrade to my NV+ and I couldn't be happier with the purcahse. Alot faster then my old NAS and same reliablity. Got it on sale but well worth it if you can afford the high price.

5 out of 5 eggsEpic cloud storage for the home

Pros: Super-easy setup / configuration
Expandable, flexible mass storage
Recovery up to 2 drive failures!
Easy web management
Decent user community & plug-ins
Root access available

Cons: Not the cheapest mass storage solution; value depends on how you'll use it.

Other Thoughts: For a fraction of the cost of a pre-configured system, I loaded up this "Diskless" model with 6x2TB Seagate green drives. Configured in X-RAID2 that's something like 7.7TB of usable space.

Setup could not have been any easier. I was up and running in minutes.

I'm seamlessly sharing files between MAC and PC environments and streaming Plex content to my home theater. I've had the ReadyNAS running for a little over 6 months now with no issues at all. It's working like a champ.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Operating system

Pros: Fault tolerant Storage. Expandable

Cons: Security on the device keeps failing. Have to reset permissions constantly. One day an account will have full access to their files, then the next, the permissions are lost. have to log on as the administrator and reset permissions at every directory and file level to restore access. Device cannot backup data to USB devices greater than 2TB, anything larger works the first few times, than fails requireing you to reformat the USB device and re-configure. I have spent more hours correcting simple issues that do not occur on any other device.

Other Thoughts: I'm going back to a Windows Server setup or possible Overland Storage.

5 out of 5 eggsOne happy nerd's scalable whole-network backup solution

Pros: - Intuitive, flexible, and responsive ajax web interface
- More file sharing protocols than you can shake a stick at: samba, afp, nfs, rsync, http/s access, ftp/s (no sftp out of the box)
- User accounts for gradated security
- Enable or disable each protocol by share
- Email alerts
- Backup scheme configurable via web and operable over multiple protocols, including rsync
- Automatic volume expansion with X-RAID2
- Open architecture: internally uses software RAID (md) + logical volumes (LVM) on Debian-based GNU/Linux OS
- Root access available with plugin
- Community-developed plugins available
- Solid, elegant enclosure, cool 2-line LED matrix display
- Netgear hard drive brackets use "slide-down" release button, not "press-in" round button (which people have reported problems with)
- USB ports (1 front, 2 back) useful for a) backing up contents of USB storage to NAS b) backing up contents of NAS to USB storage and c) sharing contents of USB storage with network

Cons: - No backup rotation using integrated tools (but easy to script with root login and cron)
- Easy to bork all your data if used without UPS, or if hard-shutdown during restripe (to be expected)
- Root access voids support contract until next factory reset (full wipe) - but this is understandable
- No way to allocate additional space to snapshots after initial format
- More expensive than consumer-grade NAS solutions
- Base system seems old to me (Debian 4)
- Occasional (but very infrequent) service crashes or lockups require reboot

Other Thoughts: I spent a week or so after this arrived testing configurations and automatic volume expansion. I decided to use the X-RAID2 system (which is basically md + lvm + Netgear scripts) over FlexRAID (standard RAID 5, 6) because it allows for opportunistic volume expansion in non-rectangular RAID geometries; upgrading as few as two drives in any single-parity config will yield additional space.

The box has been running stably for about 3 weeks now, keeping scheduled backups of my entire network.

I did end up having to perform a factory reset once, after I used rsync with the wrong destination and ran out of space on the OS volume. (There appear to be protections against using the OS as an rsync target, but these only prevented me from fixing the problem, not from creating it in the first place!) Be careful to put two colons in your rsync destination so that you don't accidentally copy to root's home directory.
