5.0 out of 5 stars Fast little box, perfect as Logitech Squeezebox server Sept. 6 2012
By Steve Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a very fast little box. Apparently it's identical to the Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 2 Plus but it comes with a 5-year warranty and access to the Netgear business support site rather than the consumer support site.

Pros: very fast dual-core Intel Atom processor at 1.8 GHz, 1 GB DDR3 RAM (note: product documentation says DDR2, mine is DDR3)
Setup was a breeze
Very silent. My old Netgear ReadyNAS Duo sounded like a jet engine.

Cons: Netgear does not officially support upgrading the memory in these units. They claim that's because memory manufacturers will change products but keep the same product number, so one 2 GB chip of Acme "ABC123" memory might work but another wouldn't. I think Netgear should leverage their buying power with the memory manufacturers and sell a Netgear-branded memory chip for these things, or at least offer a 1 GB option along with a 2 GB option for e.g. $40 more. This all said, mine flies with the regular 1 GB so I have no need to upgrade, other than this strange compulsion to max out the memory on every computer or computer-like product I own.

I bought this unit to serve as a dedicated jukebox server for my 5 Logitech Squeezebox network music players. Squeezebox Server is a very resource-intensive application that I formerly had to run on a dual-core 4 GB Windows XP desktop because no NAS drives had the horsepower to run it gracefully. On this ReadyNAS it flies. Not a cheap box by any means but it is easily 3 times as fast as my D-Link NAS units I use for bulk file storage.

I put a single Seagate Constellation ES 1 TB 7200RPM 6 Gb/s SATA 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch Internal Bare Drive ST1000NM0011 drive in it, as I am only using 400 GB of storage.

Final note: all of the NAS manufacturers are obsessed with RAID. Make sure you buy RAID-compatible drives for this unit. That means either enterprise-class or Western Digital's new red series. Netgear maintains an up-to-date listing of approved hard drives at [...] Do not buy cheap consumer-grade desktop drives for this device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Storage Option May 27 2013
By D. Mooney - Published on Amazon.com

I use this in a small business and it works great. We have remote offices and they are able to use it as a network drive via a VPN connection. This unit replaced a ReadyNAS Duo that was 5 years old and was having issues.
3.0 out of 5 stars Great backup server July 30 2013

Been using the system for a while now. its not as user friendly to administer as I would hope. there seem to be a few bugs with permissions and configuring. No show stoppers yet and happy over all just was looking for a raid nas backup. if you are not an IT pro, I wouldn't suggest getting it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great device! July 20 2013

This is a very nice product! It works very well and is quite fast. The setup may not be one of the easiest, but a technical person should have no problem setting it up. Once it is set up - the machine just works. There's a bit of noise coming from the fans, but that's to be expected. I would definitely recommend this device for storage and backups.
