Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money, 13 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Netgear Stora 2 Bay Home Media Server Network Attached Storage ( No Drives Included ) (Electronics)
Bought it, plugged to the main, plugged to Ethernet and there it was, online to be seen and available from both Windows and Linux (this is actually great since I run both operating systems). I believe that Netgear achieved this by using their own file system encoding, some sort of open protocol. My intention is to use this unit as a failover backup drive but will try to use it also for iTunes movie streaming. Got a 2TB disk inside and everything is working fine. I hope it will keep working for long time. The web interface is quite slow but comprehensive and it allows a number of useful functions, from adding users, to change network settings.

Few things I'd like to see improved:

1) Speed: the device it's transferring via Ethernet at 10MB/sec; I would have expected more from a cable connected device.
2) Slow boot: The device takes some considerable time (~30 secs or so) to get booted and show the HD as "green".
