Netgear’s ReadyNAS Duo V2 compares similarly in performance terms with Synology’s DiskStation. But it pounds it into ground beef on the build front. Macho metal grills make this an industrial looking construction. It’s too carefully...

Netgear’s readyNAS duo V2 is arguably the ideal storage centre for the advanced home user or small business. Documents, images, and video files etc. can be uploaded to the readyNAS and then shared across the LAN or even remotely over the Internet....

This is a really good NAS. It has an attractive and solid chassis with two USB 3.0 ports on the back, combined with user-friendly firmware. There are enough features, and you have access to add-ons for for download clients such as SABnzbd and...

The Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2 was a solid performer delivering some of the best results we have seen from a $200 diskless NAS device. When compared to the Synology DS212j we were surprised to find that the ReadyNAS Duo v2 was up to 35% faster in...

THE CPU WARS aren’t just about x86 procs, PCs, and phones. The second version of Netgear’s ReadyNAS Duo makes the move from an older Sun SPARC chip to ARM, and the transition isn’t pretty. Netgear’s ReadyNAS Duo v2 uses a...

This NAS offers impressive hardware at a good price, the ReadyNAS Duo v2 software and documentation fall short of the excellence we've come to expect from Netgear....

The one thing that I can say for sure is that the Duo v2 has the potential to go from being a good Nas box to an excellent one, provided the community can catch up and bring ARM support to the vast library of add-ons that have defined the ReadyNas...

We were very impressed with the design and performance of this versatile Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2 two-bay NAS drive. It has an approachable interface, a key feature, even if storage veterans may have to learn a little Netgearspeak to translate familiar...

Persuading home users to invest in backup can be difficult, and so the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2′s sub-$200 – albeit drive-free – sets the NAS off to a good start. The company’s home user focus extends to the straightforward setup...

International Review By Tweakers on 60

De Netgear ReadyNas Duo V2 is een beetje een mixed bag voor mijn gebruik. Het is een fantastisch apparaat voor het delen van bestanden op een netwerk, het heeft een geweldige bouwkwaliteit en ik geloof dat X-Raid2 een geweldig Raid formaat is (itt de...

Om datorerna i ditt hem är ett gäng jyckar i ett hunddagis så är ”nasen” den som håller i kopplen. Ungefär. Okej, den där liknelsen stämmer kanske inte helt, men nätverks-­servern (nas betyder ­network attached storage) är en mycket smart centralpunkt...

Een prima NAS. Dat is onze conclusie nadat we de ReadyNAS Duo V2 van Netgear uitgebreid hebben bekeken. Een mooie, stevige behuizing met twee USB 3.0-aansluitingen aan de achterkant en een gebruiksvriendelijke firmware. De mogelijkheden zijn...

Работает накопитель довольно тихо, несмотря на наличие вентилятора: положительную роль играет немалый диаметр лопастей последнего, а также автоматическая регулировка скорости его вращения. Подавляющее большинство настроек доступно через веб-интерфейс,...

ReadyNAS har ett stabilt metallchassi med en stor fläkt vilket gör att ljudnivån är ovanligt låg. Bakom en dörr på framsidan kommer man enkelt åt hårddiskarna för uppgradering och trevligt nog är...

Det kreves litt problemløsning eller rent ut sagt hjelp for å få installert denne disken. Men deretter er den desto hyggeligere å bruke med sitt pedagogiske webgrensesnitt på norsk ReadyNAS finnes foruten i denne 1 TB-modellen...

Das Gehäuse des Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2 ist aus Metall. Das gibt dem NAS ein robustes Äußeres. Im Test überzeugte es mit inneren Werten. Das Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2 gehört zur Einsteiger-Serie des Herstellers. Dafür ist das...
