This review is from: NETGEAR ReadyNAS 102 (RN10211D-100NAS) 1TB Network Storage
Pros: Easy installation
Expandable storage to 8tb
Cons: Could not drag and drop files
Other Thoughts: I recently received a ReadyNAS 102 as part of a Friends and Family program at Netgear.
Installing the unit was very easy. I powered the ReadyNAS unit on, connected it to my router, went to the setup website,followed the installation instructions, and was up and running within minutes. I was very impressed with the ease of the installation and the intuitive interface. Once it was up and running I did a software upgrade and began using the unit. I was a little disappointed I couldn’t drag and drop the files from my file folder onto the unit, but the upload feature was very easy to use and did the job fine. I know I have only scratched the surface of what this unit is capable of doing, but now I have more than enough space to store everything in one place, as well as access the information across my home network, or even via the internet when I am at work or on the road. It is like having my own Google drive to store and share information.
A while back I purchased two 100gb external hard drives, one for my computer and one for my wife. They worked great but filled up quickly and if I forgot mine at home, I did not have access to the files I needed. The ReadyNAS gives me a secure place to store my files, have access to and share my files remotely, as well as have a backup of my information in case something happened to my computer. The unit also has a nice backup feature so I can make a backup of my backup information in case I accidentally delete a file, or even a folder on the ReadyNAS. I can recover it as easily as doing a Restore in Windows. In today’s world with all our day to day information contained within an electronic file I feel good that my information is safe and accessible when I need it.
It is also very quiet. I have it on my desk and barely notice it running. I would recommend it to anyone as a great way to keep you computer files safe and always have them available when you need them.
