Pros: Actually have a 2588US3-SV (Silver). Reviewing here for better coverage as this "feature" surely applies to 2588US3's regardless of color. Also have an older 2595US3-BK which has the same "feature". Unit(s) work fine as a USB 3.0 to SATA Drive Enclosure with the following exception.
Cons: The enclosures "go to sleep" after approximately 5 minutes. For one containing a mechanical HD connected to the router as NAS, this is fine. The file system there deals with it OK and wakes it up in a few seconds. Actually saving spin time on the drive which is powered 24/7. But another containing a SSD serving as backup for a Windows 8.1 Ultrabook is a disaster. Unless the drive is written to every 5 minutes to keep it awake (not best for SSD) Windows 8.1 can loose it periodically creating serious problems. Not to mention that "spinning down" a SSD drive looses meaning! I've written email@example.com with no response as yet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: After posting this below... "Netgear has finally been able to reproduce this problem and is working on a fix, no ETA"!
Cons: That only took 2 months and some of the dumbest exchanges I've ever had... but maybe they'll actually fix it? I had actually given up on them prior to this communication.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Generally like the router. Just don't expect any support.
Cons: Create a small file with a few recognizable lines.
Copy it to Readshare with what ever means you use.
Reduce the size of the original.
Copy that to Readyshare, overwriting the copy there.
Examine the Readyshare copy.
Other Thoughts: And remember, a directory is just another file. Netgear Support can't/won't reproduce this, claims I'm the only one that's ever had a problem, and it must be my USB Enclosure!READ FULL REVIEW
