This was easy to set up and has been very easy to use.
Todd Trekell
At this point, I have so much time invested in trying to get this to work with no end in sight, I am going to just cut my losses and buy a better quality NAS.
Having had bad experience with Netgear customer support, as a general rule I do not buy Netgear products.

Style Name: 2-BaySize Name: 2 TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The ReadyNAS I was shipped came with a pair of Toshiba DT01ACA100 drives - 7,200 RPM drives Toshiba touts as being engineered for high performance and low power for cooler operation. I compared it to my Synology DiskStation 2-Bay (Diskless) Network Attached Storage (DS213j) using Seagate NAS drives (two ST3000VN000). As for price, the units are within a few bucks of each other if you buy them diskless.


This is where Netgear really shines. Both the ReadyNAS and the Diskstation sport single core 1.2 GHz processors and 512 MB DDR3 RAM. But ReadyNAS sports two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 compared to Synology's two USB 2.0 ports. ReadyNAS has an eSATA expansion port and Synology does not. ReadyNAS has quick tool-less disk access and a metal enclosure. To get to the Synology drives you need a screw driver to open the plastic housing. ReadyNAS drives are also hot swappable. Power consumption for Wake on LAN for ReadyNAS is 1.0W compared to Synology's 3.65W while hibernating.


Synology rules the software arena for user interface and ease of management. While both use a web browser for management on the LAN, ReadyNAS has a web browser look and feel while the Synology has a more intuitive desktop theme. But theme aside, Synology is just plain easier to use. For instance, to access a movie/song/photo via my phone from the DiskStation I just installed the media server package on the NAS and the free apps on my phone. On ReadyNAS the same task requires installing Plex media server, creating a Plex account, buying the Plex app and managing more passwords.

Style Name: 4-BaySize Name: Diskless Verified Purchase
So I had 10 years worth of digital photos, plenty of video footage, some music, plus Gigas of documents from tax records to academic work, all of them on a bunch of CDs, DVDs and USB disks of all makes and ages. I wanted everything organized, accessible readily by any of the devices on my home network (Mac, PCs and tablet), and accessible from any remote place with internet. Also I wanted some protection against hardware failure. And for privacy did not want all my data stored in the cloud.

I finally ordered a diskless readynas 104 and bought separately 4 WD drives. Installing the drives was easy, maybe a few minutes per drive without even the need for a screw driver. Then I connected the readynas to the power supply and plugged it to my ATT rooter and powered it on. The nas started by updating its firmware, then displayed its IP on the little screen on the front. I entered the IP in my laptop's browser and logged on the nas. The process was super easy. The nas was already creating a Raid 5 partition on my 4 disks -exactly what I wanted. It took the readynas about 36 hours to create the 8 Tera partition (5.2T usable, 2.8T for data redundancy). Once my partition was ready, I started copying my data and configuring the different services. I ended up shutting down most services, keeping only Samba for file sharing between Mac, Windows and Linux. I switched on the resident anti-virus (which updated itself automatically) and configured the readynas remote application to access data from any place with internet, far the comfort of home. I ended up setting up the Itune server and Plex to stream music and movies -just because I can.

I have been using the nas for one week and only scratched the surface of the possibilities here.

Style Name: 2-BaySize Name: 1 TB
I received this ReadyNAS 102 as part of a Friends and Family program at Netgear.

Pro: Solid built, hot swap capability, quiet, easy to setup, ReadyCloud, Snapshots, mobile app support.

Con: The layout of the interface maybe a bit confusing at first, especially if you want to get more specific.

I have been a Synology user for the past 5 years, and I have never looked at any other NAS brand since because synology satisfies all my needs. However, after trying out the ReadyNAS for few weeks, I have the following to say:

I like synology because it's almost like running a linux in a mini desktop, it has a lot built-in services that can be easily configured. But synology is not very serious on protecting the data, it solely relies on RAID to do the data redundancy.

What I like about ReadyNAS, it's engineered with 'data' in focus, all it does is about 'data' (after all, it is a Network Attached STORAGE), and all the configurations and functions are all focused to serve and protect the data. Two of the biggest features that stand out to me are the ReadyCLOUD and the Snapshot. The ReadyCLOUD is brilliant, I no longer need to remember my NAS' domain name, just login readyCLOUD website, and there is my data in my home NAS, Drag'nDrop files directly to my browser and it will be put into my NAS, no need to setup Samba or NFS or anything, just a browser will do. The Snapshot feature adds additional confidences to the safety of my data, knowing that if I accidentally removed some files, the NAS will recover it for me with a click of a button. After few weeks of using, I feel a lot more confident to keep my important files on ReadyNAS than on my Synology, and that's exactly what I did, moved all my important data to ReadyNAS.
