NETGEAR RND2110 ReadyNAS Duo (1 X 1000 GB) Network Storage - RND2110-100NAS - A NAS (Network Attached Storage) Device for the Home
|Provides extra storage that can be conveniently shared with all your computers
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.
Access stored content anywhere via the Internet
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.
Optional “spare” hard drive protects against drive failure by making a duplicate copy of all your data
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.
Supports most network music, picture and video players
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®.
Embedded BitTorrent™ client for direct downloading from the Internet
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.
Not for a VISTA Home Premium network7/23/2011
I spent 7 hours, over a 3 day period, with Netgear, level 2 support and was unable to properly configure the NAS. I've spent at least 10 total additional hours trying to configure the NAS. Also tried mimeo software which almost worked. Maybe another day or two of trial and error necessary to get it to work properly. I was trying to configure the NAS to support a two computer family using a wireless Netgear router. Both computers use Windows Vista Home Premium. Plain stuff, nothing fancy. Hardware features, fan is quiet and form factor are excellent but it never performed.
Lot of features, still easy to set up.6/24/2011
I am by no means a networking or computing guru. I look at contracts all day, not computer code. Setting up the ReadyNAS Duo, selecting which features I wanted to use, and moving files to and from, even setting up the automatic back up of my computers was easy for me to understand and complete. It is also VERY quiet after the initial start up (the fan noise is very obvious the first 5 seconds or so after you start it, but goes nearly silent after that). I'm glad a stepped up to this unit rather than a more basic option.
