|Bottom line|| |
The Western Digital My Book World Edition is a fast, plug and play simple-to-use NAS server that unfortunately lacks many features and has subpar remote access performance.
The GoFlex Home Network Storage System is a simple storage server and a great accessory for a Seagate GoFlex Desk hard drive. However, if you want a NAS with a lot of features, you should keep looking.
Although expensive and difficult to use for networking novices, the Synology DS209+ offers awesome throughput speed and nearly all the features you could ever need in a NAS server.
Home users, especially fashion buffs, will find a lot of appeal in the LaCie Network Space 2 because of its appearance and ease of use. But savvy users will find it lacking, both in performance and in features.
