    Buggy USB 3.0 & The Worst Tech Support Ever **Updated 4-11-13

    Updated***4-11-13Short and Sweet - NETGEAR SUPPORT IS HORRIBLE. The hardware is very good. The firmware has it's ups and downs. It's very stable but some things are broken (USB 3.0 support) and overly complicated(photo app that requires you to login to Netgear's servers to access your own server).If you want a quick and easy NAS for local backups(Mac TimeMachine users beware)or file sharing it does the job well. If you're a power user you can get much more mileage out of this. It's a Debian Linux based server. If you want to use USB 3.0 devices, the built-in photo sharing server/service, are in need of a print server or a web server you're better off going with another device unless you are a power user. When I say power user I mean someone who understands the linux shell or who has excellent reading comprehension and plenty of time on their hands to get those things running.I've had zero hardware failures. This thing is incredibly stable... 1/5 REO Speed Dragon - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    USELESS NAS - DON't BUY!

    1/5 Alan G Mowbray - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Netgear RND2000-200 ReadyNAS Duo v2 Diskless 2-Bay/USB 3.0 Network Storage for Home/SoHo Users - Latest Generation (Personal Computers) Purchased this device and it was delivered from J-Tech Digital promptly in good condition. The short review is that I could never get the device to appear on my network or on my DHCP client list on my router. I installed a Western Digital RED drive (which was included on the compatibility list) and could not get it formatted. Netgear support was not helpful just giving me the same solutions over and over which never worked.In addition, I could never get the device to turn OFF from the power switch. I always had to unplug it from the power source to turn it off.This device is useless as an NAS. I purchased the Synology DS214se which worked perfectly on the first try with the EXACT SAME DRIVE installed.Don't waste your money on this.

    WHS replacement? Not for everyone

    I had been using Windows Home Server for NAS and backup functions on my home network. WHS has been discontinued by Microsoft, and it never supported a system restore function for modern PCs (serious problem). I chose ReadyNAS as my replacement.Pros:Small sizeVery quietSeems to use less electricity than a WHSPrice seems fairCons:It cannot stream Windows Media such as Windows Lossless, even with the Squeezebox add-in, unless you are streaming to a Microsoft product such as a PC. This is a Microsoft thing. I had to convert my music collection from Windows Lossless to FLAC lossless to make it work.It is a little slow.Setup and administration is oriented around someone with above average skills. Setup requried some trial and error.The Memeo backup client is not as good as the WHS client. If you want a nightly incremental full system backup that can be used as a system restore, you might have to get extra software... 3/5 Byron Watson - See all my reviews, August 22, 2012
