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
* 256 MB PC2700 DDR-SDRAM SO-DIMM
* Embedded 64 MB flash memory for OS

I was looking for a decent NAS for home use for a while and decided to go for the Readynas Duo from Netgear after reading a lot of good reviews. I thought it was a good deal if the free 2 TB deal is honoured which it should be as they have honoured loads of the 500 GB and 1 TB deals. The cheapest 2 TB drive I found was £84.99 so I worked out that once the free HDD had been redeemed that I would have bought the Readynas Duo for £93.22 which is great considering the best price I found with no drives was £135.

The delivery option that is included in the price quoted is 1-2 working days.

Forgot to mention that if you pay by debit card Kikatek give you a small discount.

Follow the link to find out about the free HDD offer.

Brett99 I noticed that cbccomputers were also doing the deal but the delivery was five working days and there wasn't much of a saving in it so went with Kikatek for the faster delivery option. I've got my form printed off waiting to be filled in for the free HDD.

You said

"I worked out that once the free HDD had been redeemed that I would have bought the Readynas Duo for £93.22 "

I don't think this NAS comes with a drive. So once you claimed your free drive, the NAS will have cost you (263.20-84.99=) 178.21.

It comes with a 2 TB drive and then you get a free 2 TB drive.

2120 compes with 2TB pre-installed.

Yeah you definitely get a 2 Terabyte Drive pre-installed plus the free 2 Terabyte offer from Netgear increases the storage to 4 Terabyte so works out a good deal if the free drive comes through.
#6
yeah i got it from CBC in june and it comes with 2TB and Netgear are going to send me another 2TB for free - I got my confirmaiton letter and am awaiting the drive.
Was going to say the offer ended as it did end in june, but looks like they have extended it to September.
#7
definately a good deal then. i am tempted now.
#8
good find
#9
any reviews on this system?
#10
You have to be careful though, sometime the supplied Free hard-drive is not on the Netgear compatibility list for this device. This happened to me
#11
Edited cos i can't read ....

Very good deal, it cost me ~ £100 more last year to get 1.5TB RAID'd plus 2 x 500GB spare (another story ;-) ). A good site for everything readynas is http://www.readynas.com.

Cheers

#12
welshblob sorry mate this deal is much better than that because instead of having a readynas duo with 2.5 TB this deal offers 4 TB after you receive the free HDD from Netgear so for an extra £23 you get 1.5 TB of disk space extra.

This system is the same as any Readynas Duo reviewed all over the net it's just that it has a 2 TB HDD which comes pre-installed thats the only difference, there are loads of reviews of the duo on the net.

A review from trusted reviews

ReadyNas Forum

A lot of good info on the device but only some of it applies to the Duo

There is loads of info on the ReadyNas Duo out there just put it in a search engine.

debited my card £1.53 - not bad for Mini Ninjas :-)
#15
Good price, you could probably get £160 for the 2TB drives if you sell on eBay, them meaning the NAS itself would only cost £100.

The only reason I bought it was to have 2TB as storage and 2TB as backup to protect my data and it's cheaper than buying it all separately. I am certainly keeping the drives to use, but you could sell them all on eBay individually along with the Duo and make money if you could be bothered.
#17
Hmmm, I have been meaning to buy the RND2000 and stick a couple of 2TB drives in for a while now. Maybe I should just take the plunge and get this - if they give a 2TB drive free, it works out a good deal. Without it though, it's not. The last time I seen this offer, I thought they only gave 500GB free.
#18
The pdf link from the site says that the RND2000 has the 500GB drive and the 2120 has the 2TB. Interesting deal this...
#19
RudeYute they only give you the free 2TB drive if you buy this model (RND2120). The free HDD offer is on untill the 30/09/2010 so you have a bit of time to think about it but I think it's a good deal and they should honour the free HDD if you complete the form correctly.

Hmm, I get slower delivery and higher price. How did you get it down?

£269.33 (before card discount) for Priority Service (1-2 Days)
£266.29 (before card discount) for Super Saver (3-7 Days)

I don't mind waiting a little bit longer, but not if it's costing me more than what it's costing you with faster delivery! lol

Just checked it mate and am amazed that they have increased there delivery rates since yesterday. If you don't mind waiting you could go with cbccomputers who were slightly cheaper and offered free delivery but it was within 5 working days for £262.99.
#22
Expired as they have raised the delivery price by £6.13 for 1-2 working day delivery which makes the overall deal £269.33 and no longer the quoted £263.20.
#23
One question I have about this offer is what drive they provide when you buy it and is the free second drive the same make and model?

I'm not sure but it must be one of the three on the HCL.

Western Digital Caviar Green - Model # WD20EARS-00S8B1
Hitachi Ultrastar A7K2000 HUA722020ALA330
Seagate Barracuda LP ST32000542AS

I would be very surprised if it wasn't a Drive that they consider compatible with the product.

No you're right my mind must have been elsewhere when I read the deal ..... think I'll remove my post to avoid confusion.

but it is dispatched from Netgear directly, for use with the NAS. So that makes no sense
#27
Anyone know what brand of Hard Disks are included? I've used every brand there is and had every one fail at least once except Western Digital. They are the only brand I trust.
#28
What drives do Netgear put in these?

That's funny. I've only had two drives fail on me - an IBM and a WD. Yet the only two brands I ever use are Samsung and WD as they offer the best blend of speed, low noise, competitive price and reliability bar that one exception when a 120GB WD Caviar failed on me.
#30
Couple of questions before I take the plunge.

1) what are the USB ports for, can I add portable external hard drives to increase the space from the 4gb?

2) I've read you can install sabnzb. Does anyone have any idea of a typical time this would take to repair and extract say a 10gig movie. My revo does it in under 20 mins. Would it be alot slower than this?

Cheers
#31
Great price, but beware.

I bought the RND2120 from Kikatek only to discover that the website stock level was the stock held at Kikatek's suppliers - therefore it was on back-order and not available to ship.

You'll fight hard to find this out as Kikatek don't offer a phone number and take a full day to respond to e-mails.

Kikatek's shipping charges are unusually high, IMHO.

Cancelled my order and obtained a refund.

Hope others have a better experience than I had.

make money on ebay.....not a chance....if you can get drives for 85, then youll be lucky to get 70, the nas youd get about 100-110, less costs and postage which are not free...i sell on ebay alot (it costs approx £20 to sell a £200 item on ebay if paid for via paypal...alot of idiot sellers dont realise that)
#34
tempting
#35
do you have to buy an os separately to use this?

I ordered from CBC before & IIRC the free delivery said 5 days, but arrived next day - very impressed.
#37
Kikatek and CBCComputers seem to be both sold out now at least for the moment. The best deal apart from these two companies seems to be LambdaTek who are coming in at £271.84 including Delivery.
#38
Anyone know if this model is due for replacement? It's been around for 2 years or so, I can't imagine the product life cycle being much longer?
#39
I know it's not on the official capability list would any know why the Samsung HD203WI 2TB would not work on this NAS?

Don't know for sure but it's still one of the best for price and performance so can't see it being a bad buy anyway. I can't see Netgear replacing something if they don't need too.
