Synology DiskStation DS1618+ Review

The DS1618+ is a great value 6-bay appliance and a significant step forward as it offers a big DDR4 memory capacity and replaces the troublesome Atom C2538 in the DS1517+ and DS1817+ with a new C3538. Overall performance is a mixed bag but the appliance does deliver on Synology’s quoted speeds and the latest official ...

Fujitsu Storage Eternus AF250 S2 Review

Fujitsu continues to push the price of all-Flash arrays down to a more palatable level and current reseller promotions are offering substantial discounts on the list price. This updated model only offers a modest improvement on hardware features and overall IP SAN performance is a mixed bag but the array can’t be ...

Qnap TS-453Be Review

The TS-453Be is a great little NAS appliance and its low price makes it ideal for consumers and SOHOs looking for a big network storage repository teamed up with classy multimedia features. With the same CPU, performance doesn’t differ much from the TS-453B and the hardware features Qnap has removed to drop the price ...

The TVS-673e offers plenty of multimedia features for those that want them and can be easily upgraded to handle Qnap’s virtualization apps.

Synology DiskStation DS218 Review

Synology’s DS218 is a good choice for home users and SOHOs that want an affordable storage repository for file sharing, PC backup and multimedia services. It’s a great little performer too, and we think it’s a better bet than the DS218play as for a few dollars more, you get hot-swap drive bays and double the memory.

Qnap TS-453BU-RP-8G Review

The TS-453BU-RP has a lot to offer for the price making it a great network storage choice for SMBs on a tight budget. General performance over 10GbE is average but it packs a lot into its slim-line 1U chassis while Qnap’s latest QTS 4.3.4 software delivers a remarkable range of data protection features including ...

Netgear ReadyNAS RN426 Review

The RN426 may not be as app-rich as similar appliances from Qnap and Synology but it makes up for this with an excellent range of user-friendly snapshot, backup, replication and general data protection features.

Drobo B810n Review

However, as we’ve found with both Synology and Qnap, you have to think carefully about storage configurations as they present you with more RAID array options than you can shake a stick at. Drobo’s slick BeyondRAID takes all the guesswork out of storage configuration while array recovery operations are extremely fast ...
