|Bottom line|| |
The Iomega Home Media Network Drive, a single-volume NAS server, is easy to set up and use for even the most novice user; however, its lack of advanced features might lessen its appeal to savvy users.
The Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive Cloud Edition makes a very good simple home NAS server. Advanced users who need more control over their storage and remote access might want to look elsewhere.
For a low-cost entry-level network storage device, the WD My Cloud is very impressive both in performance and features, making it one of the best deals for home users.
The Western Digital MyBook Live is a fast, plug-and-play, simple-to-use home NAS server that unfortunately lacks features and has a subpar remote-access solution.
