Has been posted before but had expired. Back in stock at a slightly lower price. You can claim another 2GB drive for free through a promotional offer making this a whopping 4TB storage- not shabby.

The ReadyNAS Duo is perfect for homes with more than one computer. Unlike a USB drive, the ReadyNAS connects to the network and is simultaneously accessible via all connected Windows or Macintosh computers. If there is a broadband Internet connection and a home router, the ReadyNAS can be set up to provide secure access to all the stored files remotely via the Internet. For added protection of stored data, an optional second hard disk drive can be installed. The spare hard drive will keep an extra copy of all the data and instantly take over if the first hard drive should fail. Advanced media streaming support allows the ReadyNAS to directly serve media, with no PC required, to devices such as the NETGEAR EVA8000, Sonos Digital Music System, Logitech Squeezebox, Apple iTunes clients, Sony Playstation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360. Officially licensed BitTorrent client allows downloading to occur without the need for an additional computer. A Web-based interface facilitates download management from computers, and a special NETGEAR Digital Entertainer interface allows management from the EVA8000.

Main Features:
ReadyNAS Duo Network Attached Storage Device
2 x Serial ATA channels
Compatible with SATA and SATA II HDD
Hot swappable and lockable trays
10/100/1000 Ethernet
3 USB 2.0 ports

Do you have a link please? Would be interesting as I did not find any 4bay ones even near this price - and I would prefer them.

OK, I'll call you on that one.

I'm sure you could get an EMPTY NV+ for about this price, very much not with 4TB of storage. I know which one I'd prefer.

does anyone know if these take 2.5 or 3.5 hdds?

Just put in the promo thing for my free 500gb for a Stora, wonder what type of drives they are going to give us?
#16
Ok, so I know I am stupid but does this come wit a 2tb drive and you can claim another free for a total of 4tb?
#17
I got this a few weeks ago from Kikatek and they were superb. I received my free 2 tb within 2 weeks so I have two seagate 2tb drives with my readynas. Great buy at this price IMO.
#18
I have it. its good but I will say this - you can't store a mac .dmg file on it. I have no idea why but it won't write. there are forum threads on it. I just zipped the offending files in the end.

No idea why they haven't issued a firmware update to cope with this, and no idea why a file of a certain type wouldn't write. very odd.
#19
im a qnap man my self but these are good units
#20
I got some questions for some of you.

1. What OS does this come with? Can I install my own?

2. How do you access the OS on this?

3. How loud is it?

seems like a good deal this!
#21
finally what about newsgroups can I use this to download on newsgroups?

1) I think it comes with linux but I'm not sure if its actually got an os.

2) You access it via a web browser.

3) I don't find it loud personally but some people do complain about the noise. You heard the fans when you switch it on but it goes quiet when it is up and running.

4) Yes you can download from newsgroups if you install NZBGet.
#24
was just about to answer those too, beaten!

Its Debian Linux, I've seen chat on the readynas.com forums about replacing the OS but noone seems to advise it. Can SSH in without much trouble. It's pretty quiet, might just notice it in a completely silent room.
#25
is this beauty supporting RAID?
#26
I'm in the market for a NAS unit for home use and streaming content to 2-3 end units (2 x PlayOn HD & Revo R3610) and this seems a very good deal indeed.

However, I keep hearing people mentioning Qnap and Synology units.

I quite fancy the recently realeased Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 4 (£411)

But how will this compare to the Qnap TS-439 Pro II (£595) or Synology DiskStation DS410 (
£339)
Or is there something more suitable for my needs (with some future-proofing in mind)
#27
I'm quite tempted but I think I need a 3rd hard drive if I'm gonna do the whole NAS, RAID thing.

The latest NAS boxes are including Intel Atom processors and more memory - If you are looking at Pro-Sumer levels (which by the prices you are), check for these - QNAP's are reportedly very good - I would suggest a minimum of the 410 from @£290 upwards. The more you spend, the better results you will get - and the more concurrency on processes you will achieve.

If you want future proof (as much as you can) go for the Intel processors and 1Gb of memory - this can be seen from the specification sheets - I think the synology is quite high end for the older architecture.

Again - it is your money - try avforums for more information etc..

can someone tell me why this is twice the price of the rnd2000 model?

Because the RND2000 has no storage included and only a 500Gb drive free on the promotion. This has a 2TB disk included and another 2TB free on the promotion.
#31
You could make your own NAS with the Atom 510 with some hard drives for about £400-500.

4tb of drives: 170ukp
1gb ram: 20ukp
mobo: 60ukp
mini-itx case and psu: 40ukp

with cables etc; you could do it for 300ukp, without hotswap caddies.

but that mobo only has 2 sata connectors, and unless you want to boot from usb stick, one of the disks is going to have to contain your linux partitions. so no better than the 250ukp readynas really (other than probably faster and more adaptable).
#33
For anyone who has an iphone, there is also a readynas app which you can check the status including temperature, fan speed, space remaining/used, ups (if used) and drive health.

Considerably better value imho. Drives are cheap now and 3 x 1TB drive in an NV+ will give you the same usable storage as 2 x 2TB drives in a Duo - assuming you're building in some resilience, without which you may as well just buy USB externals.
#35
looks out of stock now. was a good deal
#36
NV+ and 3 1TB disks would be ~£340 and this is £250. So for 36% more (£90) you do get a 4bay instead of 2bay NAS.

but then you do get 3 disks that will be needed to replaced sooner than the 2TB ones if you were to expand.

Personally I'd still go for this.

Scan and Lambdatek should be getting more stock in this week.

Sorry, you lost me completely.

1) Both proposed setups would have the same available space.
2) To expand the NV+ (4 bay) you just need to buy 1 more drive. £40 would give you an extra 1TB.
3) To expand the Duo setup would require replacing BOTH drives not simply adding one.
4) You can't expand the Duo setup as they don't sell drives bigger than 2TB.
5) When they do sell HDD larger than 2TB, they will require 4K drives which aren't currently fully supported and will require a factory reset when they are.

Personally I would choose an NV+ with 2 x 2TB drives over this. Then there is room to expand in future to double the size with minimal effort and no need to buy a new chassis.
#38
very tempted.. thanks for posting!

no, one would have 3TB the other 4TB. The 3TB would even be more expensive
2) To expand the NV+ (4 bay) you just need to buy 1 more drive. £40 would give you an extra 1TB.
no, you had to buy 2 and you would not get the additional promotianal free drive.
3) To expand the Duo setup would require replacing BOTH drives not simply adding one.
well, the 4TB is at the max, we know that
4) You can't expand the Duo setup as they don't sell drives bigger than 2TB.
5) When they do sell HDD larger than 2TB, they will require 4K drives which aren't currently fully supported and will require a factory reset when they are.
jaddajaddajadda...

you said: can get the same at a very sililar price
the fact is: you can't, no matter how you try to talk yourself out of it.

So pull it out.
