Bargain! I just paid £240 for the 2TB with a free 2TB drive, this would have worked out a lot cheaper!
#2
An amazing deal. I have gone for 2! Thanks poster!!
#3
Great deal been wanting one for ages...
#4
Stonking deal, the ReadyNAS is very good bit of kit and when you consider that a 2TB drive is around the £70 mark you get a great NAS for about £60
#5
Very good deal, will almost certainly order one, especially if ebuyer ships the 2Tb drive with the order (looks like a lengthy claim period if you go through the Netgear promotion).

Damn you people are the reason I'm broke :p

[edit] btw anyone know the list of 2Tb drives apart from the WD20EARS that will work with this NAS, and whether this is potentially expandable through firmware updates?

Thanks, been looking for a NAS for ages.

Just ordered one

I bought one of these at the end of August 2010. It was about £50 with a 'free' 500GB HDD. The claim for the HDD was immediately sent off.

I chased the Drive in Octobert.

I was told on 11th October it would be with me within 28 days. It's now 12th November and I'm still chasing the 'free' Hard Drive

The NAS works a treat, though.

£50, that must have been a price mistake surely. They have never been that cheap

I think he is talking about the Netgear Stora which are about £50

Where does it say you get a Western Digital WD20EARS 2TB Hard Drive?

The last comment on the drive says you get a seagate barracuda.

anyone know the list of 2Tb drives apart from the WD20EARS that will work with this NAS, and whether this is potentially expandable through firmware updates?



Here's the list - http://www.readynas.com/?page_id=82

As I understand Netgear release new versions of their Radiator firmware every so often and there is an active community with plug-ins / enhancements for the Ready Nas duo...
#12
when you add them to your basket it comes up then for free.

Great deal just ordered

Nope - mind you would you want to 'mix' drive types?? - I'm guessing most folks will want raid 1 (mirroring) in which case performance will be dragged down toward the speed of the slowest drive..

Perhaps some clever bod can say...

Yes, I use this with a MacBook Pro and can back up using Time Machine!! :)

What file format do you use as I'd like it to work with my Macbook, a Windows PC and also hold large HD videos.

Excellent price for this. I'm going down the Synology route for a NAS though, although it will cost more than this without the drives. This is seriously tempting me though, as I'd only have to buy another 2TB and RAID 1 as I want to do with the Synology. I'll have to decide whether I need the extra features of the Synology.

It's a NAS not a DAS.

Excellent deal. I bought the 500GB version from CDiscount approximately 18 months ago for this price. Great deal for 2TB. The DLNA and torrent functions are ace.

Voted hot <3
#24
I've ordered - but have not recieved order confirmation, only got 'order acknowledgement'. Is this normal with ebuyer - the order status says then are doing a 'security check'

false alarm - got the confirmation!

Thanks!

Wanted one for ages but couldn't quite justify it..this deal just pushed me over the edge!

Can ethernet and usb interfaces be used at the same time though?
#26
Good find. been biding my time for an offer like this.

Worries me though was showing the free drivee as <5 in stock....... did I just order in time?

CIFS You just tick what file systems to allow in the setup! And mine works on Mac and PC's happily!

Anyone used one of these successfully to stream media wirelessly to an XBox 360?

thanks OP... gone for this.

To the person asking how they know it comes specifically with a WD EARS Drive, it is automatically added to the shopping basket when you add the Netgear ReadyNAS.
#33
Great deal.......I was going to order Qnap/Synology but this one is too cheap for me for not to order.
#34
Media Streaming etc is something I have just started looking into with a view to getting a system set up by Christmas and there is obviously a lot of web chat about using a NAS.

I know nothing about these but is this a good enough deal to dive in and get one now to use as part of a home system for storage and distribution around the house via media player/streamer?

2 TB seems plenty of storage for now and a bargain would be a good way of starting out.

Yeah I was going for the Synology DS211J for £157 without any drives, I'd be missing features but I can hardly resist the price of this unit.

Absolutely this is good enough. There is a learning curve for the most advanced features, but there's plenty of forum help about. My advice would be to stick another 2TB in this and have this as a RAID 1 backup server. You'll still only have 2TB of storage but the NAS can be setup to auto backup data from your pc. Losing data is very common, and once you've lost your prized pictures of your once in a lifetime trip to Mt Killimanjaro you've lost them. BACKUP! :)

I've had my readynas for about 15 months - and it's superb, but the support is an absolute disgrace, and the communities assume you've got a masters in linux terminology.
I've worked in I.T for 15 years, have all kinds of fancy acronyms I can stick after my name and all that - so I'm not an IT novice. But I can't follow 90% of the stuff on there, and I can't do half the things with my readynas that Netgear says it can.

They're great for storage and for streaming to my PS3 - but that's all mine does.

2Tb free at £130 is a ridiculously good deal though - you really should dive in. You can x-raid another disk too - so put a cheapo 500gb disk in, and have 500gb mirroring between the two drives.

I've not had much luck wirelessly (Xbox) but then I know I need to update some of my wireless devices. This works stonkingly well with some home plugs and streams flawlessly between the locations of around 50feet.

I just come here to browse over whats new and had to log in to give heat...I have the 1Tb drive and am seriously thinking of getting this one as well........hmmmm can I get it in without the girlfriend noticing....hell yeah!!! X)..

Update - Girlfriend said she would buy it for me as an xmas present - how can I say no!!!

You should try a Synology NAS then :)

I stand by my comment that this NAS is absolutely fine for being a media server as Mureilson asked for.
