NAS (network attached storage) devices/servers have taken the market by storm these past few years, that pretty much is old news what however may come as a surprise to most people is that mid-end solutions aimed for office and SMB use are actually quite higher in sales around the world compared to both high-end Enterprise/SMB and entry-level home/SOHO solutions. The reasons for that are quite simple and so you can have a powerful NAS unit that`s extremely easy to setup, has all the applications your heart desires right out of the box (ok almost since you may have to download extra ones) and of course is able to run 24/7/365 and not having to worry about stability issues and power consumption levels since the average one uses slightly over 20W while operating at full capacity. QNAP is trying to bridge the gap between entry level and mid-level NAS devices with their latest TurboNAS TS-X21 line and today we will be taking the TS-221 for a ride."
