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.

Synology RackStation RS818+ Review

Costing around $869 for a diskless model, the RS818+ is an affordable 1U rack NAS appliance with plenty of room to expand and a great range of software features. It’s better value than Qnap’s TS-453BU with both delivering a similar performance over 10GbE but we think Synology could have improved its prospects further ...

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 ...

Drobo’s slick BeyondRAID takes all the guesswork out of storage configuration while array recovery operations are extremely fast ...
