"Fantastic NAS for the price"

david bello | 26 January 2019 | In the version: NAS with no hard drives

  • Pros:
    Easy installation
  • Pros:
    Decent speed
  • Con:
    Gets erratic when running background indexation

"Best product I have purchased this year"

Robert Suarez | 20 October 2019 | In the version: NAS with no hard drives

  • 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.
