Netgear moved into desktop network storage in a big way last year when it acquired Infrant Technologies and its ReadyNAS appliances. It's certainly a force to be reckoned with in this market, but it has taken until now to complete the transition by rel...

Bottom line The ReadyNAS NV+ is a superb NAS solution with built-in expandability and hot-swapping which makes management a doddle. The price is reasonable given the cost of current RAID systems; RAID still commands a premium over single drive systems. If you wan...

Are the hard drives in your computer full, but external hard drives don't provide enough space or safety? What you need then is Network Attached Storage (NAS). If you go for the ones with room for four to five normal hard drives, it will give you a larg...

The ReadyNAS NV+ has loads of features, but a few bugs too. The ReadyNAS NV+ required the longest setup process of any NAS device we tested, but that seemed only fitting: It’s a big device, with huge storage capacity and a long list of features...
Good Huge capacity. Attractive design. Supports several media servers, including iTunes.
Bad Buggy AFP support. Setup wizard hitandmiss with Safari 3. Expensive (price excludes hard drives).

During a spate of acquisitions earlier this year, Netgear purchased NAS maker Infrant Technologies (soon followed by SAN storage maker Zetera), acquiring the ReadyNAS line. Since the transaction occurred in May, Netgear has had little time to integra...
Good Fast transfers. Supports the three major desktop OSs. Granular performance-tweaking settings. Well-behaved network client. Many features.
Bad Some parts of setup are tricky. Attached USB hard drives must be FAT or FAT32, not NTFS. Expensive.
Bottom line The Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ is an excellent combination of small-business RAID muscle, gigabit throughput, and home-oriented media features. Its expensive, but worth the price if abundant storage, fast transfers, and RAID reliability are what you need...

Netgear may be an indomitable force in the home and small business networking market but one of its weakest links has always been storage. Whilst many of its competitors were busy delivering NAS appliances by the bucket load, Netgear made the not altogeth...

Netgear is well known for its line-up of wireless routers, adapters, gateways and print servers, but the company has made serious inroads into the network attached storage (NAS) arena as well. The company recently released two new versions of its Ready...

Det här är testets minsta låda sett till yttermåtten, vilket inte är någon nackdel på trånga skrivbord. Vi uppskattar verkligen den lilla lcd-panelen framtill som berättar vad enheten håller på med vid start och under...

Bottom line en vi kan dra är att Netgear denna gång har lyckats. Produkten är driftsäker, genomtänkt och fungerar exemplariskt. Vi får en produkt som är enkel att installera med mycket inställningsmöjligheter och en hög filsäkerhet om en disk går sönder. Fördelar...

Bottom line NAS-enhetene har utviklet seg mye de siste to-tre årene. Ytelsen på de integrerte kretsene har øket veldig, og produsenter som Thecus har fått over til en strømgjerrig men rask x86-arkitektur i stedet for en mer spesialisert ARM- eller MIPS-prosessor...
