Synology DiskStation DS620slim Review

We were impressed with the DS620slim as it delivers all the features you’ve been waiting for in an SFF NAS appliance but do check Synology’s compatibility list to make sure your choice of HDD or SSD is supported. Only costing $100 more than the DS419slim, it delivers a vastly superior performance, has a much higher ...

Qsan XCubeNAS XN5012RE Review

Qsan has been busy expanding its range of SME NAS appliances and the latest XCubeNAS XN5012RE has a sharp focus on value. It certainly looks to have achieved this as prices for this 2U 12-bay appliance start at a reasonable $2,499. To get the price down, Qsan has taken its standard XN5012R model and stripped out ...

Infortrend EonStor GSe Pro 108 Review

The EonStor GSe Pro 108 stands out as it’s one of very few desktop appliances that can provide unified NAS, IP SAN and FC SAN storage services. FC read speeds are seriously impressive although to enjoy these, you’ll need to factor in the cost of the converged host board which has a hefty price tag of $1,855.
