A while back I created a dedicated ReadyNAS fan page on Facebook so people on Facebook had a place to praise/rant/etc about ReadyNAS, and have a somewhat direct link to the ReadyNAS gurus at NETGEAR. At some point (I forget when), I proclaimed that when the fan page reached 1,000 ‘likes’, I would give away a ReadyNAS Ultra 6.
ReadyNAS systems have been used by quite a few photographers ever since Michael Reichmann of Luminous Landscape reviewed the original ReadyNAS 600 7 years ago. Isn’t it great that a link to a post made 7 years ago still works? Well, there’s quite a bit of revolution in digital photography since that review that interestingly put the ReadyNAS on the map, but ironically when talking with pro photographers, I’ve found that a lot of them have not heard of or don’t quite know much about the ReadyNAS.
Recently, I started using Google+ because of my serious addition to photography (you can circle yohdah here) and I came upon a well written tutorial on how to use Google+ for photographers, written by a photographer named Colby Brown. No doubt an excellent photographer (check his website here), you can tell from his G+ posts that Colby is quite a bit more technical than your typical photographer. We started conversing over email and he thought it’d be great if he can do a review of the ReadyNAS — not one but two — the ReadyNAS Pro 4 and the Pro 6.
Yesterday, he posted his review, based on how a professional photographer would use a ReadyNAS. I thought he was dead on, and he gets the ReadyNAS. Take a look — click here.
