|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.
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.
Not only is the Asustor AS-604T an excellent NAS server for serious network storage needs, it's also very easy to use thanks to the extremely well-designed user interface.
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.
