QNAP TurboNAS TS-269 Pro NAS Server Review
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:03P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NAS units (or servers as i like to call them) are amongst the hottest network/storage related peripherals of our time (in terms of sales) which really makes sense since they combine extremely low electrical requirements with a very small size and in some occasions even a low price tag (at least entry level solutions do). Needless to say however that these little devices can`t do every single thing an regular PC (or even HTPC) can do but the tasks that they were designed to do they do a lot better (due to lower resource demands) and that`s what really counts in the long run. A couple of months ago on our test bench we had the latest TurboNAS TS-469 Pro by QNAP, an 4 bay NAS server with remarkable performance (largely thanks to the 2.13GHz Dual Core Atom processor) and countless features. Still since many people don`t really need that many drive bays today we will be testing its smaller brother, the dual bay TurboNAS TS-269 Pro."

Synology DS1512+ and DS1812+ NAS review
     Sat, Aug 25 2012 | 12:01P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you're looking for a NAS with room for plenty of disks that's also fast and user-friendly, then the new Synology DS-1512+ and DS-1812+ are two models that should be on your wish list. They come equipped with the very comprehensive DSM 4.0 firmware, with space for either five or eight hard disks. You do have to reach pretty deep into your wallet for these NAS devices.

NETGEAR ReadyNAS NV+ v2 Network Storage @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Aug 19 2012 | 11:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NETGEAR ReadyNAS NV+ v2 is aimed right at the typical small business owner or advanced home user, by virtue of its size and form factor. It benefits from a recent tech refresh of its hardware and software, becoming the v2 model in the process. With four bays you can have both capacity and redundancy with RAID 5 on a three or four disk array. RAID expansion and migration are easy, with X-RAID2 software that manages all the hard work of expanding and migrating from a single disk to RAID 1, and then to RAID 5. The NV+ v2 uses a Marvell 6282 CPU, running at 1.6GHz and 256MB of DDR3 system memory. A single GbE network port is standard, as are two USB 3.0 ports on the back panel. Benchmark Reviews has tested several NAS products lately, ranging from simple two bay units, up to an 8-Bay NAS for the storage needs of large businesses. Let`s see how this 4-bay device compares to its competitors."

Synology DiskStation DS112+ High-Performance 1-bay All-in-1 NAS Server Review @ Madshrimps
     Sat, Aug 11 2012 | 4:09P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DS112+ from Synology is a full feature-packed NAS like the more expensive versions but does offer only a single bay, meaning that is more suitable for businesses that do not need a huge amount of storage space. However, thanks to the connectivity options (1x eSATA and 2x USB 3.0), we can attach more external storage to it, if needed. The read-write performances of the NAS are good, but these are always influenced by the installed HDD."

Synology DS212 NAS Review
     Wed, Aug 08 2012 | 9:00A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today I’ve got a rather large review for you of a type of product that I find extremely useful and valuable, something I think everyone should have really. The product is the Synology DS212 NAS box or Network Attached Storage device. The DS212 is much more than just a storage box though, it can allow you to do much more than store and share files on your network. You can access it from other products on your network like your Xbox 360 or PS3 to play audio and videos or you can even access it while you’re away right on your phone. The DS212 can be a server all in itself to let you run a website or attach some network cameras and you’ve got a fully featured security system to monitor your home or business. So read on to learn more… "

QNAP TurboNAS TS-119P II NAS Server Review
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 4:16A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The countless benefits of owning an NAS server have been highlighted in our reviews time and again in the past but the two things that really make such devices popular are the small size and low power consumptions. Now although Ive been testing NAS devices/servers for quite a few years now Ive always focused on dual and quad bay models mainly because these are the most popular amongst high end users, enthusiasts and even professionals. However in doing so i have in a way neglected the entry level user segment of the market that are after low-cost single bay NAS units to use as download and media servers. Because of that todays review is about the latest single bay NAS unit by QNAP, the TurboNAS TS-119P II."

2big NAS Review
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let's face it, the world of storage has changed dramatically over the last few years. The increasing size of media has brought new need to the market and those needs are no longer being filled by CD's, DVD's, or external hard drives anymore. The limitations behind such media in a connected world have brought about a storage revolution of sorts. It is now commonplace for consumers to purchase the once business oriented NAS to supply media, data, and perform backups for the various devices we now have in our homes. There is no shortage of choices when trying to find a NAS, but some are better for users and some are better for power users. LaCie thinks they have the perfect NAS for someone that doesn't want to be bothered with tedious configurations and confusing setups. Enter the LaCie 2big NAS, a two bay NAS that promises to deliver on performance without sacrificing simplicity.

QNAP TS-412: entry-level all the way
     Wed, Jul 04 2012 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
QNAP is known for being rather expensive, but the TS-412 is the exception to the rule. QNAP makes nice products, but are typically also priced accordingly. We can certainly claim this after reviewing the QNAP TS-669 Pro. It's a powerful NAS with room for six disks running on Intel hardware. It's very comprehensive and fast, but with an average price tag of £872 it's not for everybody. The QNAP TS-412 is a different beast altogether, with room for four disks and a more reasonable price of £263 that's in the area of the recently tested Thecus N4100EVO.

Thecus N4800 @ Bjorn3D
     Sun, Jul 01 2012 | 9:10A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thecuss latest 4-bay NAS, the N4800, is designed for small and medium size businesses (SMB) or home users who need a powerful data file server to centralize all of their digital content. The successor to the Thecus N4200, the new unit has much beefier specs, using Intel Cedar Trail Atom D2700 processor, 2GB of DDR3, and 1 GB of SATA DOM for the OS. The device retails for $660 on Newegg: a bit on the high side, but its spec sheet is nonetheless impressive. Lets see if it can deliver."

QNAP TS-669 Pro
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:13P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
QNAP's TS-669 Pro NAS boasts six drive bays, which lets you create RAID arrays of up to 24 TB. Thanks to its Atom dual-core processor and dual Gigabit Ethernet, the device was responsive throughout all our testing. If you need more than the included 1 GB RAM, the system can be easily upgraded to 3 GB.

ioSafe SoloPRO and Synology DiskStation 212+ - Disaster-proof Networked Storage
     Thu, Jun 14 2012 | 10:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we don`t have the capacity to properly `crash test` the ioSafe SoloPRO, we consider that a good thing. When causing a HDD to corrupt data requires a flame thrower and a visit from the local Fire Department (and even then it will likely be just fine), they are clearly doing something right in terms of data protection. While the cost may be prohitive to some, it all comes down to the value you place on your locally stored data."

DV Nation RAMRod PC Review - A Storage Powerhouse
     Thu, Jun 07 2012 | 9:10A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most obvious positive is the storage system - DV Nation takes all the questions out of the construction of the ultimate storage system for a buyer and ships the RAMRod ready to rock right out of the box. If you have a workload that can utilize intense and amazing storage speeds, then by all means you need to take a look at this PC. Gamers may fall in love with it, but truly, you don`t need this kind of storage config to get the most out of your experience. "

Thecus N4100EVO review: four bays for a good price
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 12:02P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have recently reviewed a lot of NAS devices, and now it's Thecus's turn. Their new N4100EVO is a relatively affordable and very comprehensive NAS for its £240 price tag. Despite its relatively low price, this is a model that is pretty fully-featured. The compact little box has a door on the front, behind which the four hard drive trays are located. The trays are equipped with individual locks. On the front you will find an on/off switch, a USB connection and a display. The latter is a very practical feature to have, since it lets you see what the IP address is for example without having to use a computer. The performance and the noise production however are disappointing.

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. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
