Buffalo Technology TeraStation TS5810DN Review

SMBs that want a solidly built, 10GbE-enabled desktop NAS appliance with a sharp focus on data security will find the TeraStation TS5810DN a good choice. It can’t match the likes of Qnap and Synology for sheer software features but overall 10GbE performance is equal to Synology’s DS1817+ and Buffalo’s inclusion of a ...

Qnap TS-431XeU-8G Review

Its 32-bit CPU does restrict the number of QTS apps the TS-431XeU can run but all the important ones are present and correct. Linking it with the VJBOD feature on existing Qnap appliances provides an easy way to expand central storage while features such as the Hyper Backup Sync app make it a great central repository ...

Qnap TS-1253BU-RP-8G Review

The TS-1253BU-RP looks great value as you’ll be hard pushed to find a competitor’s 12-bay NAS appliance with dual redundant PSUs for less than this. Overall 10GbE performance won’t be worrying higher end appliances but it’s good enough for general SMB usage and Qnap’s QTS software is packed with features including ...

Synology DiskStation DS3018xs Review

Synology’s first 6-bay desktop appliance sets a high standard for performance as it delivered excellent results in our 10GbE NAS and IP SAN speed tests. A diskless DS3018xs does cost around $350 more than Synology’s 8-bay DS1817+ but it uses a more modern processor, is substantially faster, offers a superior expansion ...

Thecus N4910U Pro-S Review

As a simple NAS and IP SAN appliance, the N4910U Pro works well and its Xeon E3 v5 CPU has plenty of power on tap for SMBs with heavier workloads. We are distinctly unimpressed by the poor internal design that limits its 10GbE upgrade potential but if this isn’t an issue you’ll find this powerful 1U rack appliance an ...
