As a rule, we focus on the most cutting-edge and high-performance products in our network equipment reviews. Indeed, it is the performance factor that affects a user’s shopping choice the most, even though in the same reviews we often regret the high price of most of such products. However, the market also offers affordable solutions which, although no record-breakers, can satisfy quite a large category of undemanding users.
Today, we are going to take a look at one such product which remains popular after about two years of being on the market. It is the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo. This Network Attached Storage device is based on a platform from Infrant Technologies under whose brand early ReadyNAS series products had been released until they came over to the Netgear brand.
The ReadyNAS Duo line includes four models differing in storage capacity of the preinstalled hard disks: no disk, 500 GB, 750 GB or 1000 GB. Ours is the modification without preinstalled disks.
