Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra Loaded with Storage, Costs a Pretty Penny

Paul Lilly

Netgear, which specializes in communications equipment and computer networking gear, launched its ReadyNAS Ultra lne of network-attached storage (NAS) devices.

Available models include the ReadyNAS Ultra 2, 4, and 6. Pricing starts out at $600 for the two-bay Ultra 4, but you'll have to add your own storage. Otherwise, Netgear will fill it with a pair of 2TB hard drives for $900. The Ultra 6, meanwhile, includes both a diskless version for $900, and a $1,350 model filled with three 2TB hard drives.

Netgear admits the NAS boxes "aren't the cheapest, but that's because we believe that they're the most innovative in the market." All three models come with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 6 configurations and can serve as a dedicated NAS device for a TiVo box.

The Ultra 4 and 6 will ship later this month, while the Ultra 2 will ship in October. Netgear did not reveal any configuration or pricing information for the Ultra 2.
