corrected, thanks

I am not sure if this is a good deal or not!

I say that because:
Its a good deal - for the price of a 1TB hdd and Cheap NAS box.
Its a bad deal - for the standard 'smith' family that can make use of the netgear Stora that was £60-80 as I remember for a 500gb drive. No idea if this offer is still running but if it is, then some people will find it easier to use than a fully enabled NAS drive.

I would love one of these but not prepared to pay this much for one. I have a feeling they will drop over the next 18 months and not just by a couple of quid.

A good price for what it is, but I've bought the pieces needed to build a server for 130 (obviously without any drives) which will hold 6 drives.

Voted hot though
#5
I think it's a good deal, heat added.

However, be aware the promotianal offer on the 2nd free drive end Oct 31st: http://www.netgear.co.uk/freedrive.php

I got the 2TB deal with a free 2TB drive and I am very happy with the device. You can just slot in the 2nd drive and have your data mirrored or after reformatting you can choose RAID 0 which will give you full capacity (2 x 1TB) - in which case however you have no redundancy and if even only one of the drives breaks, all your data is gone...
#6
I've had one of these for over a year now and I cannot recommend it enough, it's very easy to set up and use and if you enjoy tinkering there's plenty you can do with it

Is the largest HDD this can handle 1TB?

Is the largest HDD this can handle 1TB?

no, it can handle SATA drives of any size. Currently the largest are the 2TB drives that are used in the 2120, which is the largest certified drive. As larger medias will become available, you should see the list of certified drives being updated.

I found this a quite useful source of information: http://www.readynas.com/forum/

Sorry, I don't fully understand. Does this come with 1 or 2x 1 tb drives?

It's quite slow.. definitely 'last gen'. You might be better to wait for Atom based NAS's to drop in price (soon, I reckon).
banned#14
For those that own it are the real word transfer rates any good?
#15
It might be 'slow' but mine does everything I need it to.

Can stream to two different rooms at the same time quite easily and I can download usenet/torrents whilst it's being used to watch a film. Can plug in a usbdriev and that is instantly available to the network. I got a printer working on the network just by plugging it into the NAS. There''s ample opportunity to tinkle behind the scenes.

Backing up to usb is slow, but I'd say this is a good deal for something that is already on the market with a good developer/support community behind it.
#16
Good NAS and simple to use. I have had no issues using it to store my movies and itunes etc and stream to media players round the house.

Sancho - can you explain what components you've built this server with? I'm looking for a NAS solution but they are all very expensive. Biggest problem with building your own is noise and power consumption compared to these linux based ones.

Thanks in advance.

I have bought a motherboard with an atom processor built on, an 80+ rated PSU (for lower power consumtion) 1gb stick of RAM and a case. I have an old 80gb drive i plan on running the OS on and am just waiting for Scan to have a good offer on the Samsung F2 1.5Tb drives again and buy 4 of those.

Not sure how it will compare to something like this with regards to power consumption, but I was looking at a 4 bay NAS the other week which was £300, I should be able to get mine and 4 drives for less than that.

Great, will have a look at it. Thanx!

I have one, transfer speeds seem mega, almost 40 megabytes per second most of the time which means that I can carry out a 1 terabyte backup in less than 10 hours. Before this I had a Thecus n1200 which I think is the same generation and topped out at about a quarter of the speed. before that I had an NSLU2 which I ams till very fond of, although that might do a couple of meg a second if lucky.
I still haven't received my 2nd hard drine in the post yet, it's nearly 6 weeks now. I have emailed them but had no reply, a search online suggest we are not the only ones.

I get about 65mbps throughput on a 100mbit network. On gigabit I've read it's about 120mbps (but can't confirm as I don't have gigabit).

For more info on read/write speeds, there's some info here.

I think I used to get about 120mbps (15 megabytes per second in my money) on gigabit, then I turned on jumbo frames and it shot up to 40 megabytes per second (320 mbps in your money).

Also I had a go at building my own NAS, but found it fiddly under Linux as I kept messing up file permissions. I had a go at running one with windows but kept finding that it would get its knickers in a twist with updates, virus scans and things like that. I also tried a minimac but it overheated as I put it in too smaller space, whoops. I find this web administered NAS's brilliant, only thing they are not really able to do yet is transcode hd for other devices that don't support it.

Wow, that's quite some improvement. Perhaps I should eat my words about it being slow.. :)

The trendy thing nowadays is to use FreeNAS, which is pretty similar to a hardware NAS in terms of interface. Personally I'd prefer to go down the full blown Linux server route, except for the wife saying how we need to keep our electricity bills down :-/

But of course not forgetting that 'real' NASes usually have nice things such as hot-swap drives and hardware RAID.
#30
Bought one and sent it back as the noise was unacceptable. If I'd had a cupboard to put it in I'd have kept it as its very well made even if the interface is poor.

TBH prices on 2Tb HDs are falling so much the offer isn't really worth it now though back in April it was excellent.
#31
I'm looking at using Windows home server or freenas
#32
Good price for what it is, 2 tb nas for £160+ very nice, just wish the unit was as nice, for me it was very problematic kept wanting to format the drive on powerup , very bad experience for em, i ended up building my own which is much better..............good price though

That is weird. My unit is perfectly quiet and it was purchased from cdiscount nearly 2 years ago! Well I did change the fan (bought a better fan from a well known auction site), the stock fan occasionally emits a weird noise that drive me mad.

Regarding the speed. I can always get full 10MB/s with my 4 years old linksys AG241V2 which only has 100mb ports. Too many network activities at the same time will cause the router to lock up. Therefore upgraded to gigabit router last year the max rate I ever got was 25MB/s, sometimes still transfer at a slower rate 6-15MB/s(stable though). Not really bothered to find out whats causing the problem and could live with it X)
#34
Bought the 2120 a couple of months ago ... it comes with a 2TB drive with a free 2TB on redemption.
However, I have been waiting for over 7 weeks and have still not received the 'Free' drive.

Phones up Netgear and they said that they had my application but were out of stock and it could take another 5-8 weeks before I get my drive... WTF!

All in all, it's a good product. I use it mainly for streaming HD content onto my PS3 and it works seamlessly. Shame PS3 doesn't play back MKV or FLAC files as that would have been the dogs.
Waiting for my free drive so I can set up a mirror system to ensure backups are made.

It wasn't just the fan though, the 2Tb Seagate whined like a turbine, I couldn't face putting a second in there and doubling the noise.

TBH I don't really think a user should have swap out the fan to combat noise, it should be engineered in. Would like to know if the ReadyNAS NV+ is any better though?

Who did you ring? I just get bumped from person to person and haven't found the right person yet.

It seems these redeption things are always like this, I got cashback after buying a Canon camera once that took weeks of chasing and from apple on an ipod that also tooks weeks of chasing and resubmitting of paperwork. The cynic in me wonders if it is always like this to avoid giving out the money.

also if you are struggling to play on your ps3 you can software to transcode on your pc or mac that reads the files from the nas and plays them in a format the ps3 can play. It's a pain, but I just fire that up if I plan to watch on my ps3.

Strange, because my ReadyNAS is deadly silent, 6 months old with 2 x 1Tb Western Digital hard drives.
#39
Bargain. I bought one of these with a 500Gb drive for £140 about a year back. I'm not a complete novice with these and seem to have lost all my photos (last 15 years worth) - everything else is there and the folder titled pictues is also still there but the photos have vanished. Not sure how but, be warned, it's definitely worth keeping a back up especially as these work on the ext2/3 format so (unless you know what you're doing) it can be tricky getting lost files back.

I have mine set up as two drives (C and D) so there's no redundany - I manually copy one drive to the other. The reason being is that I'll shortly be out of space on one and will have to start using the other in earnest.

Any ideas how to find my lost files would be greatly appreciated - not told the missus yet - I guess if I remarry I can always take more photos.
#40
As an aside, I did the mod to reduce the noise from my Readynas and it's now silent. Worth also using Samsung 5400rpm drives IMHO. Further info here...
