Does anyone have any experience with the NetGear ReadyNAS or ReadyData product lines?

I would love to hear anyone's opinions (Good or Bad) on this technology.  It was recommended to me as a viable solution for a small office (30 employees, 3TB Data) file server.

Yep, have 2 of them at home, and have sold over 10+ to clients...

I mainly use them for backup solutions - i.e. client server onsite and backs up to the NAS

Haven't had any issues with them, use them at home for file storage - sharing media/streaming video to media players etc...

I've only ever had the ReadyNAS Duo models(2 hard drive slots) so can't comment on the bigger models
