Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2
Posted on: 06/11/2012 08:18 AM
Today we are checking out the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2, which is designed to provide home and small business users with a budget-friendly network attached storage (NAS) solution for efficient data backup and convenient file sharing...
Late last year Netgear announced their new ReadyNAS Duo v2 and NV+ v2 devices, which are aimed at value-conscious business users and home media enthusiasts. Netgear claimed that their new models were twice as fast as previous generations, while costing up to 30% less. Meanwhile the same 24/7 support and a 3 year warranty existed.
The 4-bay ReadyNAS NV+ v2 costs around $580, while the two-bay ReadyNAS Duo v2 costs less than half that at just $200. Despite the massive difference in price both devices include hot-swap disk drive bays and automatic capacity expansion, as well as USB 3.0 ports for up to 20% speedier backups.
At just $200 the ReadyNAS Duo v2 is amongst the cheapest 2-bay NAS devices money can buy, rubbing shoulders with the Synology DS212j and QNAP TS-212-US. While we are yet to test the QNAP TS-212-US, we have benchmarked the Synology DS212j so that will make for an interesting comparison with the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2.
