This product is not market ready. 3/15/2012. It is not working as advertised. It is not functioning properly. I am experiencing repeated errors and the device has serious performance issues.
Set up is a breeze, even a caveman can do it. Install your drives accept the defaults and it goes through a RAID sync before you can use it. That takes 8-10 hours. I put 3 each, 2GB drives in the unit. 3.6 GB free is the wind up.
When I tried to copy files to the device, I got disk full errors immediately. Then it went into another RAID resync, a second time. That took another 8-10 hours. When the second sync was done, I tried to copy files to the device again. I got disk full errors immediately. You are offered up "click to continue". When you do that it continues. Of course it tries to copy the file again and again and sometimes again, until the copy is successful. You have to be there to click continue. The size of the file, the file type doesn't make a difference. But you have to be there to keep clicking "try again". Now I have some large 30GB files and it starts the copy from the beginning of the file. You can imagine the frustration of repeatedly trying to copy a 30GB file under these conditions. I had 640GB of files to copy too. 3 days - gone. I'm a fool.
In addition, the transfer rate is slow. 6-8MB/second, far slower than a "plain Jane" external USB drive and I have an external eSATA drive that transfers at 15MB/second.
What's also amazing is, I tried to delete a 7.86GB file from the NAS. That took 11.5 minutes.
I tested the NAS problem from 2 different computers, from their internal hard drives, an external USB drive and an external eSATA drive. I have backup software and performed backups over the course of 3 days, to both the NAS device and an external eSATA drive. The backup size is 1.39GB. The eSATA drive completes in 1:20 minutes without error, the NAS in 5:18 minutes with errors.
I have 30 years of technical IT experience. I documented all these issues with 26 pages of screen shots. Then...
I contacted Netgear technical support and spent over 8 hours over the course of 2 technical support calls with level 1 support. Painful enough. After suffering through Level 1 support protocol and a bunch of ridiculous suggestions from them, for the sake of brevity I won't begin to tell you about, I was told my incident was going to be escalated to level 3 support. After waiting 2 days and not receiving a promised follow-up from level III support, I called again this morning.
Today, a Netgear Level 1 technical support told me they were sorry about that, that Level III is aware of the problem, it is a problem with the device, that it is a problem all of their customers are facing and they are working on a firmware update.
I may be a bit foolish about this, but Netgear is a reputable company and given time, I have every reason to believe they will fix their issue. However, they couldn't tell me when the firmware update will be available. They indicated it will not be released this month. Therefore it appears their fix won't happen within Amazon's return policy of 30 Days. And after considering, there is no guaranty their firmware update will actually fix the problem. I am returning the device.
I'm going to buy the Synology 411+. An additional $279. I am going to put in 4 drives this time instead of 3.
On the bright side. Amazon customer service has been A+, extremely courteous and has made the return extremely simple. Fill out a couple of online forms and they are going issue a UPS call tag. That means they are going to send UPS over to pick it up with a return label. No return shipping charges. Now that's the way to do business. Yeah Amazon!

Pros: Setup is quite easy and customer support is very friendly. The browser interface is quite nice and allows you to quickly set up shares and users and check the status of the device. Installing a new drive is simple and the NAS will auto-detect it and rebuild the array automatically. Media=sharing is also quite easy. My XBox automatically saw the NAS and all the videos I managed to copy to it.
Cons: The device does not work for more than a few hours.
I was initially quite excited to finally have a decent NAS for our home network. That slowly diminished over time as I had nothing but trouble with this item.
When I first tried to install drives and initialize the raid, it displayed errors that it could not load the RAID in the RAIDAR software that comes with the product. A little online research yielded that I needed to factory reset the device (twice) before it would pick up the drives I installed and create the RAID.
After that completed it worked for a few days before it said that one of the drives was dead. I wasn't surprised by this since the drives I was using were older drives we just had sitting around. To rule out that being an issue, we purchased new 3TB Seagate drives that were on the Hardware Compatibility list.
After the creation of the RAID completed with the 3TB drives, it lasted about 2 hours before it reported another dead drive. I then called Netgear support and they suggested that there might be a problem with the device. So they sent me a new NAS and I installed the drives in it. After it finished creating the RAID, it lasted roughly 2 days (longest up time so far) this time, before the dead drive error.
I went to the support forums to ask for help and they recommended that I download the Seagate diagnostic tools to test the drives for errors. I ran the dianostic test on each drive and sure enough, one of the drives had some bad sectors. After I warrantied this drive and recieved a new one, I've now got 3 3TB drives that pass the diagnostic tools test. I installed the drives in the NAS hoping to finally be done with it. But unfortunately, 5 hours later, a dead drive is reported.
The next step is to contact Netgear again to see what else can be done, but I'm no longer hopeful. At the moment I am stuck with a $1000 total investment (including drive cost) that is completely non-functional.

The first three days I had this NAS, I spent about 20 hrs with tech support with problems ranging from unit freezing (multiple times) to the remote access not working. Tech support even rolled-back the firmware saying that the newest (3.5.6) was buggy. We were able to get remote access working temporarily with the roll-back. The following day it stopped working again. I went back to the newest FW and remote access started to work again for Windows but with my Mac Pro would continuously drop out. To restart it, I had to uninstall Remote Access and reinstall it again. After a few hours, it would drop out again. Trying to restart it, w/o reinstalling would consistently fail login. Freezing continued to happen about once a day and to restart the unit I had to power-down and power-up again. Power button would not power down the unit. Had to unplug power. Was told by tech support that the "PRO" and "ULTRA" models work.
We're very concerned about your situation, and sincerely apologize for the level of work it's taken for you to troubleshoot. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org right away, and make sure to include the most recent case number you received from support so we can investigate and get in touch.

terrific product - performs well, good software, great manuf. tech support, 5YR warranty. also, newer models available with newer software for cloud services (RN10400 etc).
Shuts off very often. The most unreliable brand in NAS devices. I had to root it to have low level access to be able to restart it when it's frozen. It gets frozen every month.
I purchased a ReadyNAS NV+ V2 about a year ago. It seemed to work fine for a while and then the server stopped working. The drive would not start.Read more

Works perfectly well. After installing this and setting up all of the backup jobs on the local PCs, this has worked great. Haven't had to give it a second thought.
