Style Name: ReadyNAS Duo, Diskless (0TB) Verified Purchase

Short 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. Knock another $30 off the price and it would be great for a computer science major's dorm room or apartment (as long as they use Windows.)

I originally wrote that if you wanted something to work out of the box this wasn't the NAS for you. This NAS could work out of the box for you depending on your needs. I still can't give it any more than 1 star because you just cannot rely on any customer support from Netgear. The forums they provide have great power users and engineers who may or may not try to help you. You have the option of paying for support after the initial support period ends but I can't recommend paying for the privilege of being lied to or left with unresolved help desk tickets. Great hardware with no reliable support is going to add up to 1 star for most end-users.

Style Name: ReadyNAS Duo, Diskless (0TB) Verified Purchase
Everything started out fine. Unboxed it. Marvelled at it's small size. Installed my two sata disks. Installed the software on my laptop. Fired it up and began configuring. It took a couple of hours for the new drives to sync, that's to be expected.

Afterwards I began setting some of the power options. There's an area to set it to sleep during certain hours. I chose to have it sleep from 12am to 8am. It sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

The problem is with the default firmware v5.3.3 it will NEVER wake-up. Pressing the power and reset does nothing. Unplugging and replugging does nothing. You have two options, either send it back or disassemble the unit to remove the motherboard battery. The entire operation involved about 10 screws, and the removing of 3 circuit boards to get to the battery. After that it started up again. I immediately unchecked the sleep mode option. This took about an hour to do.

It took quite a bit of digging to find this solution, and the firmware update to fix this bug was only just released in 3/2012.

Lastly. I hoped for better "media serving" capabilities, but as with all things PC, the uPnP and DLNA features are weak.

So for now it just small quiet network storage for me.


I struggled for a while with the storage disappearing from the network. I was unable to view or use any of the folders. It would come back after a reboot. I never knew what caused it.

Netgear released another update which seemed to fix that issue too. It has been stable for over a month. I'm moving more files to it now that it has seemed to stablize.

Style Name: ReadyNAS Duo, 2TB (2 x 1TB) Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
In reading the reviews here, you'd probably think that the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2 is a piece of junk - and quite honestly, even I thought the same. Thankfully, things could not be any more incorrect - the RND2210 is a rock solid NAS.

But first some background - I run a house full of Netgear equipment. From routers, to a duo of Readynas Ultra 2 Plus units syncing to each other. I've set up several of the ReadyNAS units, going all the way back to when they were sold by Infrant.

The Duo v2 looks exactly the same as my (more expensive) Ultra 2 plus, and that brings me to my first complaint about these units - the naming is pathetic. At my local Fry's store, they stock all the different ReadyNAS units, and unless you spend a week researching, you won't have a clue what all the differences are. Some run Atom, some Marvell, some are USB 2.0 only, others have USB 3.0.

The names don't make things much easier either - who is supposed to know the actual differences between the ReadyNAS DUO V2 and the ReadyNAS Ultra V2?

OK - on to the setup. I already have Raidiator on my PC - this is the software used to detect and configure these units. It instantly found the new device, and detected the drives. Within a few minutes, I had my system up and running.

Test 1 - copy media files to one of the shares and stream to my Google TV unit.

This test went as should be expected - perfectly, and just as well, because this is the most basic thing you should expect from a NAS. File copies to the unit were done at 60MB/s - very snappy for a NAS (Gigabit, Jumbo frames off an SSD equipped desktop). Similar copies OFF the unit went at a staggering 112MB/s.
