    I'm about to buy a Netgear ReadNAS and intend to install a pair of 1 Tb drives to run in a Raid 1 configuration.

    However, having looked on the Netgear website at their list of approved drives I am having trouble finding anywhere that sells the exact models they recommend.

    Can anyone who owns a ReadyNAS recommend me a suitable hard drive.

    My ReadyNas Duo 2210 (2x1Tb) should be here Friday. Will make the weekend dissapear if not careful.
    I know the Duo doesn't come with server grade HDs but don't know which one it comes with.
    I am excited to have a NAS though.
    Got it via Buy.com ($10 coupon for first timer, and $100 rebate right now) so for under $350 it will be here with 2 1TB drives already in her ready to go.:D

    I'm still trying to figure out exactly which hard drive models come with the 2210 configuration.

    2 x 1TB drives are included, but I cannot find exactly what drives come with it anywhere.

    If anyone knows, please do share. =)
