NAS

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 ...

Qnap TVS-673e-8G Review

The TVS-673e offers plenty of multimedia features for those that want them and can be easily upgraded to handle Qnap’s virtualization apps. Overall 10GbE performance is good enough for light to medium business usage and the latest QTS software delivers an abundance of storage and data protection features.

Best seller Synology DiskStation DS218 Review
NAS

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-228A Review

There’s little to fault Qnap’s TS-228A on making it a great choice for home users and small offices that want an affordable NAS appliance for file sharing, backup duties and maybe a bit of entertainment. It’s very easy to install and offers plenty of software features plus a few surprises in the performance department ...

NAS

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 ...

NAS

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. Cloud support sees plenty of improvements, the new Atom C3538 CPU delivers great performance and this ...

Best seller Drobo B810n Review
NAS

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 ...

NAS

Qnap TS-431X2-8G Review

Small businesses looking for an affordable entry-level NAS appliance with plenty of features for the price will like Qnap’s TS-431X2. Performance over 10GbE is a mixed bag with noticeably lower write speeds but this little 4-bay appliance will make a great backup repository and the new Storage and Snapshots Manager ...

NAS

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 ...

Best seller Qnap TS-431XeU-8G Review
NAS

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 ...
