|Bottom line|| |
The ReadyNAS Ultra 4 is a workhorse NAS server best suited for home- or small-office environments, where heavy data sharing and backups are required.
Synology DiskStation DS412+ makes an excellent NAS server for advanced home and small-office networks.
The Disk Station DS410 is one of the most affordable four-bay full-feature NAS servers on the market. While it's overwhelming for novice home users, advanced users will also find it to be one of the best RAID 5-capable NAS servers for their home or small business environments.
It's not the fastest NAS, nor does it include many advanced features, but the WD My Cloud EX4 still combines great ease of use into an affordable personal cloud system that's excellent for a connected home.
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.
