Here at DigitalReviews.net we have been reviewing NAS storage units for about a decade, from very simple one or two bay units to enterprise level rack monsters.

Nothing much surprises us anymore in that field. Except when QNAP announced its NASbook.

This is a form factor that will attract many new users and one of the reasons for its anticipated success will have nothing to do with QNAP but the type of SSDs used in this unit.

We elected to equip them with 4 M2 SSDs from ADATA, a great combination.

Let’s see what this is all about.

A Network Attached Storage system is a jack of all trades, a Swiss Army knife of interconnected computing, based on a bunch of drives that play nice with just about any computing platform.
That is my definition anyways...

But a NAS as a karaoke machine is a bit different. Mind you, it is just another app that will run nicely on this particular QNAP model in addition to the host of other standard NAS applications.
So QNAP has done something different to make this machine really sing and dance.

Let’s have a look and listen.

While all the NAS reviews that we have done over the years have mainly been about the big boys of network attached storage systems, it is pleasing to see that ASUSTOR as a relative newcomer is pulling out all stops to play in the big league.

Today we are checking out the Intel Braswell equipped 4 Bay AS6204T which, given the excellent specs, would perform well in any SOHO situation. That means great for small office use and perfect for a home office.

(This review was written by our latest contributor Roel Verhoeven – Ed.)

Over the last years I have occasionally wondered if I should invest in a Network Attached Storage (NAS) box. I, like most people, have amassed lots of pictures, home videos, music and more. All of these are stored on my laptop and I regularly back these up on an external USB harddrive which I keep at work.

If, like me, you've not owned a NAS before but are interested in what it can do for you, then this review is written for you. Note that this NAS has many features aimed at (small) business users which I've only partially covered, this review has a home user in mind.

So how did I go?

Whenever a storage company announces a new model you can be sure of one thing: the first paragraph in their press report will read something like this –
Synology® today launched the new DiskStation DS1515, a powerful and expandable 5-bay NAS offering a high-performance, reliable, and full-featured network attached storage solution for growing small and medium-sized businesses.

Of course we expect high-performance and the utmost in reliability. That's a given.
And nothing less than full featured network features will do. After all, that's why we buy a network attached storage system.

So what makes the DiskStation DS1515 different from all the others we have reviewed?

Let's have a quick overview.
