We got one of these thinking we could use it as a file server. It has SMB and with the SMB Pro plugin we could have pretty advanced sharing permissions. Furthermore, it integrates with our Domain controller no problem.
The issue is that it has very slow seek times. We have a TEN year old file server that this thing was supposed to replace that annihilates the ReadyNAS 104 in seek times. And that is not a fast computer. The old server I'm talking about takes about a minute to open firefox. It is a painfully slow computer IF you're actually trying to use it. But as a file server, that old computer is quite competent. You request files, directory listings, etc and you get what you want immediately.
The ReadyNAS 104 lags. Its fine for file transfers. The bandwidth is as fast as anything on the network but if you want to host a database on a share for example as we did on that old server, then you're in for a lot of waiting because the readynas doesn't seem to be...
So I had 10 years worth of digital photos, plenty of video footage, some music, plus Gigas of documents from tax records to academic work, all of them on a bunch of CDs, DVDs and USB disks of all makes and ages. I wanted everything organized, accessible readily by any of the devices on my home network (Mac, PCs and tablet), and accessible from any remote place with internet. Also I wanted some protection against hardware failure. And for privacy did not want all my data stored in the cloud.
I finally ordered a diskless readynas 104 and bought separately 4 WD drives. Installing the drives was easy, maybe a few minutes per drive without even the need for a screw driver. Then I connected the readynas to the power supply and plugged it to my ATT rooter and powered it on. The nas started by updating its firmware, then displayed its IP on the little screen on the front. I entered the IP in my laptop's browser and logged on the nas. The process was super easy. The nas was already...
Wow!.....15 years of using Netgear products without an issue until this thing came into my life. I am so disappointed with this product and NETGEAR support. I will not only be replacing this unit for my home with something from a different manufacturer but the other (2) ReadyNAS devices that I purchased for my company. This unit was purchased on 09/01/2014 - I didn't receive it for few days, then it took over two days to get the drives formatted and another 4 days to get all my movies, pictures, music, etc,,,loaded (which I was willing to deal with as a "one-time" operation to get it setup) ran fine until shortly after a recent firmware update. Now the unit is stuck on "Booting..." but when I read the warranty and it said it had a 3 year warranty an a 90 day installation warranty. Here is the actual warranty info from Netgear for my unit: Product Warranty Information Product: RN10400 Serial Number: 3EPB44EK000C4 Country of Purchase:...
