wow, I totally missed the RD5200 announcement. That thing is impressive, obviously overkill for what I or my company are in the market for. My office just installed a QNAP. I encouraged them to get the RNDP line but was rejected.
I am slightly annoyed at hardware manufacturers (NG included) that don't take advantage of USB3.0 and Thunderbolt tech that is generally built into current chipsets. I do understand the comment however, no one is copying from USB, it is more of a stopgap access for a small set of files.
Like I said, I'm sure Netgear knows what the competitors are releasing for new hardware and software updates, I just pray they hit a home run and don't pull an iomega
I would guess we are looking at refreshes this year or at the latest next.
