The quartet of Thunderbolt 3 ports bring Mac users firmly into the storage equation and the new Network & Virtual Switch app allows you to easily provision them with 10GbE network speeds.

Qnap TS-832X Review

Costing around $100 less than Synology’s 8-bay DS1817+, Qnap’s TS-832X looks good value and it’s a lot faster over 10GbE as well. The ARM-based CPU does mean you’ll have to compromise on app availability but this 8-bay desktop appliance is well suited to SMEs that want a high capacity backup and file sharing vault ...

Synology RackStation RS1219+ Review

The RS1219+ scores on a number of counts as it’s the smallest 8-bay rack NAS appliance on the market and has a price tag to match its modest dimensions. It’s disappointing that Synology fitted it with a pensionable Atom C2538 CPU but we found overall NAS performance should be good enough for the target market of SMBs ...

The TS-1635AX is a worthy contender for businesses that want a big NAS appliance that puts a pile of storage on their desktop at an affordable price.

Qnap TS-932X Review

The TS-932X delivers a versatile mix of LFF and SFF drive bays and great 10GbE performance at a sensible price although its ARM-based CPU does limit your app choices. If you like the look of Qnap’s 9-bay desktop appliances, we recommend choosing the TS-963X if you want the best app choices and support for NBase-T but ...
