Synology RackStation RS815+ Review

Synology says the RS815+ is the most powerful 1U rack NAS appliance it’s built so far and our test results show this is no idle claim.

Synology DiskStation DS2015xs Review

The DS2015xs is certainly an unusual storage appliance but is let down by unimpressive IP SAN speeds over MPIO links. However, it’s packed with plenty of storage features, NAS performance is a lot better and it scores highly for value as it delivers integral 10GbE networking at a comparatively low price.

Synology DiskStation DS3615xs Review

No other vendor can match the DS3615xs for sheer capacity as this is the biggest desktop NAS appliance on the planet. The two design flaws we found knock its scores down slightly but it grabs them back with its huge range of features, massive expansion potential and excellent 10GbE performance.

Thecus N8810U-G NAS Review

The N8810U-G falls well short on features when stacked up against similar appliances from Synology and Qnap but it does score highly for value with a diskless model costing only $1,799.

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 ...

Synology DiskStation DS1515+ and DS1815+ Review

The new DS1515+ and DS1815+ benefit hugely from the new Atom CPU as performance for general file sharing operations and encrypted folders is much faster than their predecessors.

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 ...
