As many vendors have raced to compete by turning their NAS appliances into full media machines, Netgear has never really fallen into that. Instead, they have focused on building solutions that offer solid file performance at a low cost.
The RN214 is the latest four-bay solution to come from Netgear, and this appliance comes in several capacities. Of course, things start with a diskless unit with added options of 8TB with four 2TB drives and a larger option of 12TB with four 3TB drives. As I mentioned briefly above, Netgear has never really fallen into the media center idea, but they do support transcoding and streaming via Plex and other applications. In fact, this ReadyNAS 214 supports real-time 1080p transcoding. On the file side of things, Netgear has several pieces of software that compliment this appliance enabling you to backup and maintain your data.
Getting on with the specifications of this appliance, the ReadyNAS 214 is a four-bay appliance supporting up to 24TB of capacity. It features a quad-core ARM Cortex A15 operating at 1.4GHz paired with 2GB of DDR3 and for connectivity one eSATA port, three USB 3.0 ports, and dual Gigabit LAN.
MSRP of the Netgear ReadyNAS 214 in its diskless form comes in at $499.99 with a three-year warranty.
