ConsThe only real disadvantage to this NAS device is the price. While other units may sell for less, Netgear does not cut any corners when it comes to protecting your data and neither should you.
The 1TB and larger hard drives provided by Netgear are enterprise class drives with higher reliability and longer expected life span than what may be found in other network storage devices.
