Product Description

Product Description

With powerful embedded software, the ReadyNAS Duo makes storing and accessing your personal digital photo collection a snap. Simply connect any USB-enabled digital camera (cameras produced since 2005) to the front-mounted USB port on the ReadyNAS Duo. Then set the camera to automatically copy your digital pictures into the ReadyNAS.

Just add an optional second hard disk drive and the ReadyNAS Duo can create a duplicate copy of all your stored pictures. In the event of a disk failure, the backup copy on the second disk drive is still available. After storing the photos, the ReadyNAS Duo automatically resizes the images and creates a web page that can be shared with friends and family across the Internet (router and broadband connection required for Internet-sharing capabilities).

Product Description

Netgear Readynas Duo RND2110 network attached storage device for home use. Directly streams music, photos and video to existing network media players without a computer. Creates a personal webpage. Storage capacity 1TB.

Yes, I have to agree with the other two reviews, this is a solid bit of kit. I bought mine a year ago to replace a disasterous episode with a Buffalo drive. To be fair, it's not a realistic comparison, the Buffalo was sub £100 but this, with 2 x 1tb drives fitted, was double the cost. Having said that, what point is there owning an unreliable NAS drive regardless of how little you pay for it in the Buffalo's case?!
You can put 1 or 2 drives in the ReadyNAS. Either use all space for data or set one drive up as a redundant RAID device to mirror the other one. I opted for the second solution but being Mr Cautious, I still back up to an external device as well (remember,if you've got a corrupt doc on one drive, it simply gets mirrored! So having two drives shouldn't be seen as an excuse to NOT backup. What mirroring does mean is that if one drive dies, the other is still avaiable. The BitTorrent client on board is easily replaced by a more configuarable version (the one on board can't be configured to throttle down bandwidth consumption at certain times in the day (well it couldn't with the realease that came with my ReadyNAS at any rate). I installed the Transmission client which allows me to set zero or very low download in the peak hours during which your IPS might well get on your case if you do to much) and full throttle during the night. The RAIDar software is a little flaky and sometimes fails to see the drive evenwhen you know it's up and you can ping it, so that's a slight downer. Device prefers a uniteruptable power supply. If you kick the plug out it can take a long time to come back on line as fully redundant as it goes through resynching every file.

Easy to set timed backups to an external device.

The ReadyNAS Duo is very easy to use and has excellent online support, removing a lot of the pain from buying and setting up a NAS. Mine worked perfectly straight from the box. The second disk came direct from Netgear and has installed and worked with no problems.

One issue I did have was getting the initial admin connection. Raidar did not find the drive, which was down to the local security settings on my PC.

Another issue that may put off some purchasers is the performance. This unit does not come anywhere near the top for data speeds in any of the reviews I studied, but the same reviews highlighted problems with all the better performing units and I wanted a unit I could rely on.

Finally, some reviews claim it is noisy with excessive fan noise, but mine is very quiet.

I bought this because i was having problems with my LaCie 2Big Network drive. Although a little more difficult to set up than the LaCie it has more functionality and tighter security settings. Once I had got used to the interface I was very happy. The product is very very quiet, it sits next to me on my desk in the office, is very small, and I do not notice it except when it's reading or writing data. I bought a second Seagate drive to go in it for RAID 1 functionality. I did send off for the free 2nd drive from Netgear but still haven't recieved it yet ! Good job I bought the second one! Overall I am extremely please with this solution.

Oh dear what a mistake getting this one.
I have over 20 years in IT and I have seen a few poor products. The product is good what is letting this model down is the more advanced features, Netgear seem to think they can get away with the simple answer of, this feature is no longer supported but if you install ssh addin you will find more features here, note ssh is not supported by Netgear and we will not help you if you do install it,
It worked out of the box sharing files yes, pushing backups, forget it, changing user rights after backup forget that one as well doesnt work, admin rights over all files, No, not unless you install the unsupported ssh,
Ftp no way, tec support sorry please use remotenas, oh my lord it was so slow I just laughed,
I can not comment of the raid side of things or the support of squeeze server,
Netgear seem to have confused alot of people with the naming of this item as well as its a new product since nove 2011 with a similar name to an older product that had more features,

if you have good linux skills you will love it if not stay way unless you just want simple sharing,
Money back? I doubt it, just an expencive networked hard disk,

Come on Netgear you need to sort out the very poor backup software.
A better manual as well with better examples.

I bought this NAS Duo following a friend recommending the product to me, to back up the files on my Mac. This was nearly 2 years ago.

It was fairly straightforward to setup, but then just over a year later stopped working. As hard as I tried I could not get the NAS Duo back up. I contacted there support desk who where absolutely useless. I ended up having to reformat the 2x redundant disks, reset the NAS back to its factory settings, just to get it working...... However now the disks will not sync/mirror each other and always get corrupted. So after hours and hours trying to get the disks to sync, I have finally admitted defeat, been to PC world, and bought a USB cable and external disk chassis, to put one of the disks in, formatted it with the Mac Disk utility and started to use Time Machine.

Lets see how that works out. But I definately would not recommend this product, their support, or risk trying to use this solution as a sole storage location for anything important. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME! SO MUCH TIME!
