Picked this up ...
RND 2110 - basically because of the Free Hard Disk offer.

Should have read the specs a little better I guess. I had problems upgrading the memory - the NAS drive is pretty slow on the network.

I got hold of an old machine and rigged it up with FreeNAS ... a little more expensive, but miles ahead when it comes to performance and flexibility.

ReadyNAS is recommended for anyone who wants a basic backup unit at home or a small office though.

ive always thought these are poor value

id rather go for a synology NAS, dlink 323 (ok, slow but cheaper) or even better with a bit of effort get an hp proliant server

While this is a fine unit (I have the 500GB version of this), there is a much better alternative at present for the same price: HP Proliant Microserver + £100 rebate + 2TB drive (Samsung, etc) + FreeNAS or other equivalent software.

Cost is comparable (actually slightly better), although this alternative requires a little bit more effort (following instructions on websites, etc.).

I must agree the Ready NAS isn't very powerful or fast; I bought mine in the £134 Ebuyer deal last year (RND2000 and free 2TB drive) - it has been very reliable and mostly meets my needs, and for that money it was great value, but at £200 there are plenty of alternatives to consider. I'm not too familiar with the HP microserver; I don't know if it's performance is significantly better.

Sorry to butt in: someone mentioned FreeNAS:

I have an old, unused Shuttle machine sitting around at home doing nothing. I think it has an Athlon X2 processor and perhaps 2GB ram. If I were to use/install/run FreeNAS from a USB memory stick which I plug into this Shuttle machine, could I essentially use this machine as an always-on 'music/mp3 server' for my house? I have a number of Squeezebox players around my house that are currently streaming music off my Media Centre - the only problem with this setup is that when my Media Centre goes to sleep (it is a bit noisier and power hungry than the Shuttle), all my Squeezebox units can no longer access the music.

I might give it a try then.

I have a readynas duo and am considering switching to HP Proliant as it can also be converted to HTPC/NAS with a half height HD graphics card and xbmc.
