Experience: 2 Years


4 bays. 2 ethernet ports. front LCD. eSATA port.
Slow. Ok for 1-2 concurrent connection. somewhat sluggish user interface.
Slow but probably cheapest 4 bay NAS. This was to replace Netgear NV+, which was even slower than this one, but was really stable and never crashed. I got this one as I had a good experience with NV+ for reliability. However, I have an impression that although this RN104 is much faster than NV+. but is less reliable. It acted up a couple of time, so I had to re-boot it. I guess it's not bad to re-boot twice over 2 years, but I sort of expected 100% hassle-free as I experienced with NV+.

Anyways, I am quite happy for the performance and 4 bays for the price.

Experience: 2 Years


- Easy to use
- Reliable
- Locking tabs work great
- No over heating
- Difficult to setup RAIDs
- Use of software
I've had this NAS for more than 2 years now with 4 x 2TB WD Red SATA HDD and have had no issues with it in all this time. The limitation and frustration of this unit comes from the software that runs on the system. Buggy and often times frustrating to use to accomplish simple tasks. But great unit for the price and has never let me down or lost my data.

Experience: 6 Months


Good Small device, very quiet.
None for my use.
I bought it some month ago and transfered my data in it. Put 2 4tb hard drive in raid mirror. It's working great for my house and the cloud is usefull when you are out of the house.

Experience: 2 Months


Relatively cheaper price.
low power CPU and unstable ROM.
I bought this NAS and put 2 of RED 4TB Nas hard in it. Don't overestimate its advertised features. This one is just simple file server. No more than that. If you think about using plex on this, forget about it. And plus, OS has a serious code defect with latest build, so any configuration change or uninstalling apps on it can cause a problem that you can't access to web interface admin page. They force you to say yes to expose your all personal data to them for their tech support to fix that.
It's cheap, and it works just as much as its price.

Experience: 7 Months


- Looks great
- Easy drive installation
- No problem streaming 1080p with WDTV and Patriot media boxes
- Ridiculously slow to build RAID (over 30 hours for 3X 3TB)
- Reliability? (see summary)
- Warranty is a scam (see summary)
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.

Experience: 1 Weeks


price is competitive when on sale
sturdy build
iscsi support
OS can use more work
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.

Experience: 7 Days


Easy to install drive
not well documented for starting up
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.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Antivirus protection
Unlimited snapshot capability
Apple Time-machine
Tool-less drive install
Slow volume rebuilding
Odd drive setup process
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.
