QNAP SilentNAS HS-251 2-Bay NAS Review
     Sat, Oct 18 2014 | 12:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is not the typical every-day NAS we are testing today, it is a somewhat special device. When we usually think of NAS devices, it goes in the direction of tower and rack-systems; and that is not the thing you would like next to your well designed home-theatre system. Another thing that prevents most people from having their NAS in that particular location is the noise generated by fans to keep the device cooled; QNAP have tackled both these problems in the HS-251 silent and fanless NAS. QNAP is one of the leading brands within NAS and storage, along with Synology and Thecus. Asustor have also grown into a bigger competitor in this market, and it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. QNAP is no stranger to this scenario and with the many years of experience they have in the bag, they packed this tiny 2-bay device with all sorts of useful features; this is far from the every-day NAS device. This isn’t just a stylish and silent NAS either, it is also a HTPC at the same time. You can connect it directly to your TV or monitor via the built-in HDMI port to browse the web, stream media or play what you already have stored on the same device. There are three ways to control the HTPC part of this device, you can either attach a mouse and keyboard or use your mobile-phone or tablet with QNAP’s official control App. The third option is an extra remote control that can be bought separate.

QNAP TS-451 Turbo NAS Server Review
     Thu, Oct 16 2014 | 12:57P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The QNAP TS-451 Turbo NAS is part of a new hardware platform for QNAP that brings a high level of performance to the small tower-based format, at a lower cost than was possible before. The four new TS-x51 towers are being promoted as home-based NAS servers, based on their high performance, low cost, and a bunch of new software functionality that is ideal for the modern home. While recent QNAP launches have leveraged the tremendous potential of 10GbE networking for the business user, the home and the SOHO market aren?t there yet. The home market is very sensitive to pricing, so the best thing to do is to re-engineer the daylights out of the surrounding infrastructure and pump a little more juice into the system controller. More power, new features ? lower price?"

QNAP SilentNAS HS-251 NAS Server Review
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 1:34A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since i started using and testing NAS devices I?ve always been on the lookout for one which could replace the media player i have in my bedroom since such devices offer so much more. Unfortunately if you`re reading these lines then you are aware of the noise most NAS devices emit even at idle so they are not really what I?d call suitable for use in a bedroom especially at night. QNAP came up with a solution to that issue by releasing the SilentNAS HS-210 a few months ago a NAS device which was based around a passive cooling design so noise levels were only limited to those coming from the drives themselves. The lack of an HDMI output however didn`t just surprise all of us here but it also rendered that project unsuitable for use with a TV set and thus my only hope was that QNAP would listen and resolve this with a future model. Well it didn`t take long for them to do so since they just released the SilentNAS HS-251 and although it shares the same passive design as its predecessor it`s not only improved in terms of specifications but it also features two HDMI outputs."

Thecus N2520 2-Bay NAS Review
     Tue, Aug 26 2014 | 4:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the latter part of last year I took a look at Thecus N2560 2-bay Intelligent NAS – one of only two white systems that Thecus have in their library and as a budget busting system it really stood its ground in a market which is getting more and more competitive as time moves on. Whilst I looked at the N2560, I made a number of references to the N2520 which we have here today, simply because it is slightly more powerful system with double the RAM and a slightly faster SoC processor running at 1.6GHz. It is therefore only fair that at some stage I take a look at the N2520 to see if it is really worth the move to the higher performance model, or if this is still a worthy contender in the market. At the time of the N2560 review we could see that there was around £40 difference in cost between the two systems and moving forward to today we note that the price gap is still roughly the same - more importantly though, the price of BOTH units has come down considerably. Where the N2560 was retailing previously for around £270, the same unit can now be found for around £210; whilst the N2520 has dropped from £230 to £170.

Synology Diskstation DS414j 4-Bay NAS Server Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Fri, Aug 22 2014 | 3:53P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Diskstation DS414j 4-Bay NAS server is just another fine example of what Synology is capable of. The aesthetics of the design are retro and understated, and with the minimal noise created by the device it will be able to disappear in most home or small office settings. With 4-bays available for configuration with the drives of your choice, you can choose just how much storage space you need, and what sort of drive array is best for your needs."

Netgear ReadyNAS 516
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those seeking a high performance desktop NAS need look no further than the Netgear ReadyNAS 516. Priced at $1100 the RN516 isn’t just fast it’s also very cheap when compared to the competition. As we mentioned earlier, the QNAP’s 4-bay QNAP TS-470 Pro boasts the same processor but just half the memory and two less drive bays, yet commands a price tag over $1200.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges.
