Editors Didn't Like

  • Controller specs hold back performance, RAID 6 not available (OK, I really don't like drive failures....), Must be on same subnet as workstation, or use static IPs, Cooling fan is noisier than most, Drive trays not labeled 1,2,3,4
  • The Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ v2 is spartan in its features and noisy in its operation
