I set that up, it was pretty painless, and it works well.

Style Name: ReadyNAS Ultra 2, Diskless (0TB) Verified Purchase
After being a generally satisfied user of a ReadyNAS Duo for a few years I was looking to upgrade our home NAS. I use the NAS for Mac "Time Machine" backups and as a home media server....nothing too extreme. Being familiar with ReadyNAS I purchased this unit figuring it would be an easy setup with an increase in performance.

WRONG.

After having one "issue" after another attempting to get the thing up and running, including problems with hard drives that are 1) on the ReadyNAS compatibly list and 2) worked just fine in the ReadyNAS Duo, I wasted several hours trying to get this thing up and running. Even basic issues were frustrating like a user interface that would seem to "hang" or nor render graphics. I was able to toss in an old drive I had laying around just so I could boot it and update the firmware in case that was a problem but even that was painful. Finally I threw in the towel, boxed it up, and set it back to Amazon.

I had a Synology DiskStation 2-Bay (Diskless) Network Attached Storage DS212j (White) overnighted with Amazon Prime and I had that sucker up and running in less than 30 minutes. No kidding. While the DS212j is running a sync (as I type this) that will take several hours, that is expected with any initial RAID setup. The user interface of the Synology blows the ReadyNAS out of the water hands down.

Style Name: ReadyNAS Ultra 2, 4TB (2 x 2TB) Verified Purchase
device works very well and am happy with the performance. i use it to back up 2 pcs in my office. however, the ReadyNAS backup software has issues and will not work with win 7 x64, too bad as it would surely have simplified my backup needs. Did not even bother with the Memeo, looked like a toy, instead i have been using win7 backup but it is not that efficient and wastes a lot of disk space so i am going to use another backup software. i have genie so iw ill try that. i am adding another of these devices, an Ultra 4 plus (faster and more drives) to act as my file server and will use the existing to backup the file server. this way i am not shuffling files between pc's.

I love this thing. It. Is the best little NAS I could find for the money. I wish I had gotten a bigger one. It is easily put together the drive bays slide in and easy. You have to be picky about the drives to put in for Netgear to honor the warranty on it. So read up on those. The DLNA works great on it. The software you run on your computer is a little slow but nothing really to bad.

On the surface it looks good. It's a metal case which looks nice and solid quality. There is no qualm with the build quality of the unit. The software itself is fine for basic purposes. I had been looking at the Synology units and it would seem that their "add ons" for their devices are developed more regularly and with more of them than for ReadyNAS. Netgear seems to half abandon its products and I was surprised by the lackluster support, broken graphics on its website and relative lack of interest in doing much more than just providing the basics for the ReadyNAS series.

If you're looking to do various things with it (such as transcoding) be warned. It won't stream video although it will stream data to a device that will display the video (such as a TV.) The CPU is not fast enough. Speaking of the CPU:

The CPU in this model seems to have been switched by Netgear. [...] . Other people buying it seem to be confirming that the CPU speed is definitely slower than listed on most websites. [...]

If you are buying this because you read a review about the CPU being 1.8GHz then be forewarned. It seems to be a little under 10% slower because the CPU in these devices is 1.5GHz. If it's really cheap then it could be a good deal but know what you are getting before you buy it.

Style Name: ReadyNAS Ultra 2, Diskless (0TB) Verified Purchase
I know just enough about technology to be dangerous. That is, I know enough to want my own big home NAS and to have the redundancy of a RAID configuration, but beyond that I know nothing about networking. I need to rely on the built-in software.

So I wanted to buy an inexpensive 2-bay NAS for my home network that would support 4TB hard drives. I had an old D-Link DNS-323 that couldn't handle that capacity and was always kind of slow. Netgear ReadyNAS has a great reputation and some low prices, but I found it hard to find a clear comparison of the various models. After more trolling and asking around than should have been necessary, I finally chose the ReadyNAS Ultra 2 over the ReadyNAS Duo v2 because of the low price on Amazon and the better Intel processor, memory and performance. At the time of my purchase, the Ultra 2 did not officially support 4TB drives, but a little research confirmed that I would be OK, and experience proved that out (Note: When I made this purchase in early 2013, both the Ultra 2 and the Duo V2 were under $200 on Amazon).

I'm happy to report that set-up was quite easy for this non-techie. Everything was fairly clear and setting up a RAID-1 configuration was handled automatically by the software. RAID Scrubbing, firmware updates, email notifications all work automatically as advertised. Diagnostics are really clear so I feel confident I'll know if something ever does go wrong. I have not tried Netgear's backup software, or USB storage, nor have I tried to use it as a print server, or a DLNA server, or to get into any sophisticated configurations.

Netgear offers free "add on" services as well.
