Cons: - Ridiculously slow to build RAID (over 30 hours for 3X 3TB)- Reliability? (see summary)- Warranty is a scam (see summary)

Pros: - Looks great- Easy drive installation- No problem streaming 1080p with WDTV and Patriot media boxes
I wish I didn't give a bad rating to this box as it seems to work pretty well but I have been having too much problems to give it a higher rating.First: WARRANTY. 3 years? Yeah right. 3 years for HARDWARE ONLY. The SOFTWARE warranty is for 3 TINY MONTHS!!! Seriously, I just cannot believe that. I have purchased that box 8 months ago, wrote to the tech support because the NAS reported one faulty drive and when I shut it down, removed the drive and powered it back up, no error, RAID is normal.So I did a DISK TEST, believe it or not, I stopped it after 11 DAYS. I was sick and tired to hear the noise of the drives. It never finished. I mean, 11 days for 3 X 3TB drives?So the technical support team told me that my warranty expired (3 months after my purchase) and I'd need to pay 80 US$ to extend my warranty. Very disappointed by that.

Cons: OS can use more work

Pros: price is competitive when on salesturdy buildiscsi support
The advantage of four bay over two bay is with raid 5 you lose 25% capacity as protection in case 1 drive fails, instead of raid 1 you lose 50% which is too much in my opinion.it's not the fastest speed and feature rich unit on the market, but for the price paid, I think it's good deal.

Cons: not well documented for starting up

Pros: Easy to install drive
Not stable enought to put sensitive data. Unable to have it work correctly, latest firmware 6.1.5 buggy and was told by netgear support to downgrade to 6.0.8 . After that i needed to reset because of constant freeze and lost all my data. Plus RAID5 array of 4 3TB WD red take about 26 hours to build (did that 3 times in one week). Had speed problems with my exiting gigabit router(engenius). Want something user friendly and easy to use at home. Read Netgear forum before purchasing, you will have a good idea of the product.

Cons: Slow volume rebuildingOdd drive setup process

Pros: Antivirus protectionUnlimited snapshot capabilityApple Time-machineTool-less drive install
This is the second NAS that I have purchased and so far I've been pleased with this one. Drives installed without any tools in a nice locking system. The 4 four drives I installed had some old info on them, so the initial set-up process was a bit more complicated, as I had to reset to factory defaults (Not well documented process of using a paper-clip, restarting and cycling through the onscreen menu to find Factory Reset). After that, setup was a breeze. All functions are controlled by web interface which is clean and intuitive. Runs very quiet and not warm to the touch. (my 2-bay D-Link can get hot enough to cook on). I would suggest checking the Netgear web site for drive compatibility before buying drives, as it's a pretty small list.
