"Best product I have purchased this year"
In the version: NAS zonder harde schijven

By Robert Suarez on 20 October 2019

  • Pros:
    Cost effective
  • Pros:
    Great software and storage capacity
  • Pros:
    Like look and quiet function
  • Con:
    Not as easy to install drives as the + version.

I compared multiple reviews and products and this was the best product for the cost by far. Spending more money for a higher Ram chip has no impact on my use of a NAS unless I was using more of the multimedia apps. I only need a mass storage device that is on my home wifi network.
