When it comes to storage, it`s not enough to offer just a bunch of space because storage is a commodity that even the most basic of systems today can offer. What you need is a compelling reason to spend your hard-earned dollars and if you`re a one-trick pony like the GR5630-WSB3, then speed and price are your major selling points and the unit comes up short in this regard. From a price standpoint, the GR5630-WSB3 can be had for around $300. The Thecus N4100PRO can be found for $350, with other 4-bay units from QNAP and Synology ranging from $300 - $400. A NAS unit offers a lot more features and flexibility, which leads me to conclude that the value just isn`t there in the GR5630-WSB3."
