This review is from: NETGEAR ReadyNAS 516 (RN51600-100NAS) Diskless System Network Storage
One point I failed to mention in my other review: The Tool-less hard drive tray.
This tray is real step forward in ease of use. No screws or tools needed to place a drive in, or remove a drive from the tray. An additional and very cool feature is the ability of this tray to also mount 2.5 in HDDs or 2.5 inch SSDs. (2.5 in drives, do need mounting screws.)
There is a release button that allows the tray to be pulled from the NAS frame. That is the same button that releases the drive from the tray. So if you hold down the release button while pulling the tray out, the drive will separate from the tray. Best to press the release button just long enough for the handle to pop out. Then grab it to remove the tray.
Better yet, I just put one mounting screw in each tray just to be sure.
