Dell Storage SC4020 Review

The SC4020 is clearly priced to appeal to SMBs with a typical starter configuration costing $25,000 and including two 8Gbps FC controllers, twelve 1TB NL SAS drives and a full 3-year onsite 24/7 warranty. Performance using the latest SSDs is exceptional and the automated features of Dell’s Storage Center software ...

Fujitsu Storage Eternus DX100 S3 Review

The Eternus DX100 S3 looks good value as a base system comprising one controller, dual 1GB iSCSI ports, three 3TB NL-SAS drives and a 3-year on-site warranty costs around $6,644. Fujitsu’s manuals really need a rewrite to make deployment easier but this well-built array is big on performance and data protection ...

Sony Xperia Z3 Phone Review

Overall I think if you choose not to go for the Z3, then you’re making a big mistake. This is the phone Sony was always meant to make. If you do have the Z2, I would say maybe wait another 6 months for the Z4 as the improvements are marginal over the Z2. That being said, anyone else really needs to take a look at the ...

QNAP TS-EC1280U-RP NAS Review

QNAP’s TS-EC1280U-RP scores well for its high capacity and extreme expansion potential. You’ll have to wait a while for features such as iSCSI snapshots and the BBU to become available but performance over 10GbE is good, cloud features are extensive and the Virtualization Station has QNAP standing out from the NAS ...

QNAP TS-853 PRO Review

QNAP’s TS-853 PRO delivers superb performance and features. Quite frankly we are at a loss as to what the competitors will do to top QNAP, if only to just clone. The price point is not half bad either. All in all a great NAS for both business and home users and highly recommended. QNAP deservedly wins our first ...
