Great NAS, great Price!
This review is from: NETGEAR ReadyNAS 102 (RN10223D-100NAS) 6TB (2 x 3TB) Network Storage
Pros: The unit itself is small and worked-well out of the box. I connected, downloaded the f/w update, and installed anti-virus in no-time. It's accessible to my network and, being pre-configured I didn't have to do much more than just turn it on. My plans are to use the NAS as home-entertainment media storage.
Cons: The CPU (arm) isn't powerful enough to do video transcoding. If you're going to use this unit to store your media files, don't waste time installing the plex app (which is cool that it's supported) as the limited CPU means that the native plex app isn't going to be much more that a cataloger for your collection.
Other Thoughts: As in all things, caveat-utilitor -- had I known about the arm-cpu limitation, I probably would have invested in a more powerful unit. otoh, I wasn't expecting to be able to run Plex natively on the NAS, so that was just an unexpected bonus that didn't pan out. For what I originally intended to use the NAS for, it works great!
