ReadyNAS Product Line Comparisons

These guys have a fantastically complicated product line.  It’s been around since Ajump, Infrant; NetGear now runs it.  It’s never quite clear what you’re buying and whether the box-on-the-shelf in front of you (or in the online store) is current or discontinued or what.  The published specifications are a little vague on a lot of the high-end capabilities.  Unfortunately, that means you “learn by experience” when you buy a unit and discover the user base / feature set that the model was tuned for.  Drive one before you buy one; good advice in all realms.
