Is the RN428 discontinued or just out of stock everywhere?

I have been ooking around and can't find any details on it being still an active product - can't even see it on the Netgear site.

Does anyone know if its just a supply shortage or if it's gone?

https://www.netgear.com/support/product/RN428.aspx doesn't identify it as discontinued (compare to https://www.netgear.com/support/product/RN316.aspx, which is discontinued).

 

That said, some folks here have gotten some info suggesting that Netgear is exiting the NAS business.   Netgear hasn't said.

What I have noticed is that when a large company goes silent on a product, with no new products being developed, and all existing stock is sold out for an extended time is that the division is being sold.  I expect that there will be an anoucement sometime in th future.

So it does seem like maybe they are discontinuign the ReadyNas line.
Is it an allowed topic to discuss what everyone suggests moving to?  I've been a readynas customer for over 10 years so I have no idea what any other company offers.

Best way to find out is to start the discussion, and see if the mods remove the posts.
