PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
The main feature that sets this NAS apart is its ability to accept both 3.5” as well as smaller 2.5” drives. You can’t mix and match different sizes of drives, but it’s still nice to have the option of using one size or the other. Up to five 2.5” SATA drives can be installed, or alternatively you can install up to three 3.5” SATA drives.
Hardware specs are fairly impressive. An Intel Atom processor and 1024MB DDR2 SDRAM are inside, so it should have no problems keeping up with typical users of a home or small business network.
Everything inside was packed securely and arrived in perfect condition. Many of the features are described on the outside of the box, and there’s a handle to make it easier to carry around.
Accessories include an Ethernet cable, setup CD, screws, quick start guide, and the obligatory power adapter and cord. Current pricing is approximately $400 US which might seem expensive, but you do get quite a bit for your money as we’ll see over the course of this review.
