WD My Cloud DL4100 Business NAS Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Legit Reviews took a look at the WD My Cloud EX4 back in 2013 and found it to be one of the easiest to setup and use 4-bay NAS models on the market at that time. The WD My Cloud EX4 was part of the Expert Series, which meant it ran Linux and was aimed at Prosumers. If you wanted to step up to a businesses line you had to move up to the Windows powered WD Sentinel series and you were talking more than double the price. The divide between the Prosumer models and the small business models were crystal clear thanks to the significant price gap. All that changed last week when WD launched the WD My Cloud Business Series with the DL2100 (2-bay) and DL4100 (4-bay). These new business models were designed from the ground up to be a high-performance NAS solution designed for small businesses, so you’ll find business class hardware features like a high-performance Intel Atom C2338 dual-core processor, 2 GB of expandable DDR3 memory, dual NICs and dual power ports. Read on to see how the WD My Cloud DL4100 performs when we put it to the test!

Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our review of the Thecus N5550 5-Bay NAS Server. This is a very affordable 5-bay unit that takes the term NAS to a whole new level. While it comes pretty bare with the OS, there are hundreds of add-ons that make it truly stand out. When you combine great features with fantastic performance, it's hard not to call this anything other than a winner. Take a look at our review for all the details.

Synology DS415play NAS Review
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 1:47A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Synology presents itself with another high-quality NAS model, the DS415Play which is oriented to home users with plenty of multimedia content for playback on different devices. Thanks to the Intel solution, unsupported file formats will be converted for different devices on-the fly so they will be played without additional issues. The 1.6GHz dual-core processor is paired with a total of 1GB DDR3 (non-upgradable) and the manufacturer is still using the proven 4-bay plastic chassis which we have seen with the DS412+.

Eight 19-inch 4-bay rack NAS review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 7:18P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NAS devices are slowly but surely evolving into a new type of device. Whereas they previously were true storage solutions, nowadays they are becoming more functional, app-driven products, much like telephones and tablets. This could be especially interesting in a (smaller) business environment, as you can add a machine which can handle a specific set of tasks for you in an instant. For example, some devices allow you to create your own Dropbox-like environment, to host a Wordpress-site, or even to run a complete CRM system. The options and capabilities are so extensive that it would be almost impossible to describe everything. On the other hand, while having a complete, well balanced tool box is a useful thing to have, you may not necessarily use everything contained in the box on a daily basis. You should look at these devices in a similar way. You might need all of this functionality, but on the other hand, they are and will always be clever storage boxes which can also be an excellent addition in that regard without all of those extra frills.

QNAP TurboNAS TS-653 Pro NAS Server Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I don't think that there's a single person who can deny that network attached storage devices are getting more popular by the day and the reason i say this is not the increased sales manufacturers are seeing nor the number of brand new models they roll out every once a while no. I'm saying this based on the increasing number of people asking us (either live or via email and through social media) for such reviews. Well i can't really say this comes as a surprise to us, i mean what's not to like about NAS servers? They are small, pack quite a punch, use less electricity than a halogen light bulb, produce low noise levels, offer a complete array of applications right out of the box and can even give you enough space for up to 10 drives (SMB models) which as we speak translates to roughly 80-100TB of storage capacity (thanks to the new 8-10TB drives). Today we'll be checking out one of the best models currently available in the marker for SMB (and home) use, the latest 6 bay TurboNAS TS-653 Pro-8G NAS server by QNAP.

QNAP TurboNAS TS-470 Pro NAS Server Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 3:18A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes i feel that things are moving so fast in the electronics and PC hardware industry that i simply can't afford to look the other way not even for a minute. Take for example NAS devices/servers. It hasn't been more than a month since i last checked all the available models by the 4 leading manufacturers (QNAP, Thecus, ASUSTOR and Synology) and right now there are at least 10 more available ones in their product lines (some already available in retail and some just announced). So that alone means that things must be going even better for all those manufacturers than the last time i checked several sales charts almost half a year ago and with so many people using NAS servers at home for various things such as for file sharing, downloads, video recording and media playback that doesn't really come as a surprise. Today with us we have one of the latest high-end NAS servers to hit the market by QNAP the TurboNAS TS-470 Pro.
