|Bottom line|| |
The LaCie 5big Network 2 is appealing mostly to home users, especially sci-fi movie fans or fashion designers. Advanced and savvy users might be turned off by its lack of features and comparatively low performance.
The DiskStation DS1511+ is arguably the best five-bay NAS server on the market for both home and office environments. Novice and home users, however, might be intimidated by its setup software and the number of features it has to offer.
Despite the lack of features, the LaCie 5big NAS Pro is an excellent buy, thanks to its superfast performance, ease of use, and massive capacity.
Synology DiskStation DS412+ makes an excellent NAS server for advanced home and small-office networks.
The Synology DiskStation DS1513+ is easily one of the best multiple-bay NAS servers to date, performing superbly both as an advanced storage server and as the central host for a long list of home entertainment and business uses.
