Works, nice LED display
Slow and odd web management page, noisy.
I Setup 4x 2TB Drives in it with Xraid (when drives were still cheap ^_^). It found one of my drives bad, and I replaced it. Once all said and done it actually operates pretty well, the only beef I have with it would be the webpage for managing the thing... its not exactly fast or really well laid out. But your only in there to really set it up the first time. Also the fan can get a bit noisy.
All things considered there are probably better units out there, but on a sale this one is pretty good too.

Price is attractive
Difficult to change the RAID configurations.
Very Slow disk initialization 2T drive took 9hours(this is for second drive)
DLNA not working – very bad if you plan to use for Media Server.
I will not recommend this to anyone, the unit seems to have a lot of software issues and Netgear is slow to fix them.

+ Expandable RAID
+ Fast transfers over GB LAN
+ USB option for additional devices
- Long rebuild time (7-8 hrs)
- A bit noisy
This is overall a very good unit. Does what it's supposed to do. I use it to stream 1080p videos over the network to a media player and it does that without a hitch. Fast transfer times too. Easy to upgrade the memory (whoever's interested), although there's not much point in doing that; benchmarks show that you *might* get ~5% increase in performance which won't make a difference, as the unit already performs well.

Some of the drawbacks include long rebuild times and somewhat noisy fan. Both are of no consequence to me as I keep mine in the basement and the device can still be used without a problem while it's rebuilding.

Totally worth it (on sale)!!

Stable and serves its purpose
X-RAID option
Kinda slow on my network.
No option for power on after power loss.
Took overnight (6-8hrs) to initialize 6TB in X-RAID.
Took ~1.5 hrs to re-initialize after power failure.
Fan is horrendously noisy, especially at boot time. Has a hum to the fan as well. Doesn't matter to me, I put it in the basement.
Jumbo frames are off or on at MTU=7936 only.
PCs on my network transfer at 49MB/s. This thing transfers at upto 29MB/s after turning on all performance parameters (19MB/s at default settings).
Included torrent client seems slow and never hit my max bandwidth. I use utorrent.
All in all, still a great product. It streams and stores things just fine. Just don't keep it where you sleep and don't expect blazing speeds.

Experience: 1 Months
Rock Solid stability and way better then D-Links NAS product
great cooling
Good solid case design
Tons and Tons of Add-on programs can be found for this device
Memory can be easily upgraded to 1 gig at your own risk and possibility of voiding the warranty
Plays Nice with the 2TB WD Green Drives
I still do not get why companies will sell a product saying that it has Gigabit ethernet on it when it does not get the gigabit speeds on a true gigabit network. Cat 6E Cable and all.

The fan is a little loud when its at full speed, but when you got a movie or music on you don't hear it. When the fan is running at a lower speed you can't hear it.
Before I got this I had (still use) a D-Link DNS-323 and a D-Link DNS-343 and I have to say that I LOVE this netgear device. Its A LOT more stable then the D-Link products I have. On an average week I will have to restart the dlink devices at least twice to get them working again. I have not had to restart the Netgear since I put it on the shelf.

The only downside to this device is the transfer speeds to and from the device, on average I would get between 9 to 11megs a second. However I hear if you upgrade the ram (voids warranty according to a netgear rep I talked to on the phone) the speeds can jump up to around the 18megs a second mark.

In conclusion it makes a great device to store music, videos, photos and tv shows on to stream to your Xbox, Playstation, HTPC or other media player.

Easy to setup and upgrade
Lengthy setup
I bought this and got 4 3tb hard drives and it took the better part of the night to set up. But i guess that is what happens when you have 12 tb tovprocess.

simplicity of use and manage
nothing to say yet
I bought this equipment to have a really stable and security of all our familly pictures, movies, video, musique, files, etc... But dont forget this is not a backup solution. But about this thing this is really easy to make a backup on an external USB drive, of anything with a facilities integrate in this solution. There is also a really great users forum to talk about differents things for problems or discussion about thi solution. Very simple to use even for a newbee. I bought it at 290$ with pricematch, really good deal. Dont think more go for it !!!

Supports 2TB drives with firmware update. Backup PC files but also works with Apple Time Machine.
Fan is a tad bit loud.
It took a little time to sync the 2TB hard drive but once done, was able to back up my PC as well as the Mac (seamlessly worked with Time Machine) Connected the printer to the NAS and now everyone at home can print from every computer.

Experience: 20 Months
Very easy to set-up, reliable, quiet, easy to expand the volume, works great with Apples Time Machine, supports all major file protocols.
Some operations can take a very long time to complete, can only lose a single disk before the volume is at risk, really picky about UPS units, lack of recent firmware updates.
I had been in need of a NAS for a while as my main PC was crashing too much and I did not have a decent backup solution. I got the ReadyNAS NV+ with 2x750GB drives and added 2 more to give me 3TB (2.1TB effective). This was around January, 2009.

It has worked flawlessly since then, barring a few hiccups with our apartments power supply randomly failing. Fortunately I have not lost any data at all. My unit is connected to a UPS (APC USB 450), however the NV+ only has limited compatibility with UPS units - so be sure to check on the compatibility list before getting one (highly recommend using a UPS with it).

Earlier this year (March 2010), I lost one of the disks due to a drive failure so replaced it with a Samsung HD154UI 1.5TB drive and (because of the sales at NCIX ;)) ended up getting 2 more Samsung HD154UI 1.5TB disks. Upgrading the NAS to 4x1.5TB was a long process, but it did work. To upgrade the capacity you leave it on and switch out each disk one at a time letting it rebuild the array. This can take up to 12 hours per disk as the disk has to be initialised and then sync'd. Finally the volume expansion has to be performed during a reboot otherwise you will not get the extra capacity.

My unit is now at 6TB with 4.5TB available. File sharing has been fine over CIFS, NFS and AFP. I cannot comment on any of the other features (such as BitTorrent or media streaming) as my unit has no internet connection and is purely a redundant backup box. The base functionality, however, works brilliantly and network transfers are around the 22MB/s mark on Windows, Mac and Linux (be sure to enable Jumbo frames and use Gigabit ethernet).

I would highly recommend this NAS unit - especially if you are just starting out. If you require better redundancy, then the ReadyNAS Pro / Pioneer editions take 6 disks and can be run in RAID6 mode.
