Reviewers Didn't Like

  • Fan noise is distracting for a home environment
  • The ReadyNAS Ultra 4 is expensive and has just three USB ports. It doesn't allow users to change RAID configurations from within its Web interface and takes a long time to add a new hard drive to the existing X-RAID2 setup
  • Dated, framebased GUI, No eSATA ports, Some featured media services don't come installed
