Expert Review

This is a four-bay model that is available for a pretty reasonable price, while offering terrific overall performance. Each bay can hold up to a 6TB drive, for a total of 24TB of storage. You can expand on this setup with additional hardware from Netgear, however, that brings that total up to 14 bays and 84TB of data. It has a 2.1GHz dual-core processor and 2GB of memory. There's a simple-to-use user interface that lets you set up your server and get it working on your network however you want. There is a USB 2.0 port and two USB 3.0 ports, one of which is a shared USB/eSATA port, plus there's another eSATA port for even more storage. Two Gigabit LAN ports give you plenty of connectivity, all of which comes together to give you a great option for a high performance NAS.Rating: 4.75/5
