(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.

Aegis Secure Key 3.0 - Another Upgrade from Apricorn. More Secure Than Fort Knox?

Read more: Aegis Secure Key 3.0 - Another Upgrade from Apricorn. More Secure Than Fort...I didn't realise that it was already more than three years ago that we reviewed the original Aegis Secure Key.

See our article here.


We highly recommended that little critter for its security in such a tiny USB key package.


Now it's a slightly bigger edition that Apricorn sent us the other day: this time around it sports USB 3.0, it's a bootable drive and it has much higher capacities.


So let's have a quick roundup of some of the main specifications and differences.

The QGenie is the smallest of all the NAS units we have ever reviewed. It's positively tiny and probably is smaller than your smart phone!


Yet, it contains a lot of functionality not seen in its bigger siblings: let's get the genie out of the bottle or rather, let's get the QGenie out of the box and see what magic happens if we put it to use.

NAS is for sharing, and we all know that. So expect file sharing but also Internet sharing and even power-sharing. And more.


Let's see how it all works.
