Years ago, not many people owned their own NAS storage solutions. Gigabit Ethernet at the time was a luxury not many people enjoyed, NAS units were horrendously slow, software was generally crappy and decent NAS units were usually very, very expensive.

I can’t say I’ve done reviews on every NAS unit out there, but I’ve had my fair share of experiences with them. Previously, we’ve taken a look at the home oriented 2 bay Synology DS212, which is a great home oriented NAS unit perfect for those home users who need a storage unit with some sort of redundancy built in. Then, we took a look at the SOHO oriented 4 bay Qnap TS-419P II, which was a fantastic, well priced NAS unit with plenty of features designed for those who want more versatile redundancy options offered with a 4 bay NAS unit such as RAID 5 or RAID 10.
