Up until I embarked on this review, my strongest memory of Plextor is their dominance of the optical drive market in the 1990s. Simply put, they had the best CD-ROM writer in the days when making "coasters" was commonplace. These days Plextor has retained their storage beginnings with a focus on Solid State Drives (SSD). DigitalReviews would like to thank Plextor for providing a M5Pro (PX-256M5P) Xtreme for review.
Having reviewed the top-of-the-line QNAP Network Attached Storage system last year, the TS-EC879U-RP, our expectations are high.
QNAP sent us the TS-469L Turbo NAS, a 4-bay improved model of the trusted 469 series.
This is what became evident after some weeks of testing: the Q in QNAP stands for Quality and Quiet.
Our favourable impressions had been solidified over the years by many Synology product reviews. Their Network Attached Storage units for business and personal use have been scoring consistently high in our write-ups. Yet, in the back of our minds, we knew we had to leave some superlatives for their top of the range RackStation, the RS3412RPxs.
Let us take you on a little journey to describe the RS3412RPxs and the market it is aimed at.
It’ll be clear when I explain that this drive is a superfast SSD albeit with a much lower storage capacity (120GB) than the previous Apricorn Padlock 3TB drive we reviewed recently.
Worth the investment? Perhaps.
In the market for an enterprise-level solution for your critical data? If you are, you’ve come to the right place: we are reviewing a few NAS units for the big end of town. Today’s write-up features the QNAP TS-EC879U-RP. This is an 8 bay unit, rack mounted (2U) with Redundant Power Supply. We’ve had plenty of experience with QNAP’s product line and if QNAP stands for "Quality Network Appliance Provider", they have amply proven that in the past.
Today’s unit under review is the top-of-the-line machine from this Taiwanese company which we’ve been testing out and using for several months.
