Synology DS1522+ NAS Review

Synology DS1522+ NAS Review – And Now for Something Completely Different, sort of… Many who have been following the release strategy of the popular network-attached storage brand, Synology, have been noticing something of a shift towards premium business products this last few years. The brand still features numerous solutions that are targeted toward home, value […]

Terramaster T9-423 NAS Drive Review

Review of the Terramaster T9-423 NAS Drive Terramaster has really been remarkably busy in 2022 releasing their new range of hardware and software developments to their steadily growing audience.

WD Red Pro 20TB NAS Hard Drive Review & Benchmark

Review of the MASSIVE WD Red Pro 20TB Hard Drive for NAS You really have to stop and marvel at the speed at which hard drives and storage, in general, grow every year.

Synology DS2422+ NAS Review

Synology DS2422+ NAS Review – Go Big or Go Home? I think it would be safe to say that Synology sells quite a lot of NAS. The brand has always had a strong focus on software and providing ‘solutions’, as opposed to ‘flogging hardware’, but ultimately the outcome is that Synology continues to be the […]

D-Link DMS-106XT 10GbE and 2.5GbE Switch Review

Review of the D-Link 10G/2.5G DMS-106XT Switch Remember when buying a network switch was something you did because it was needed for work? Or because you needed to catch a network together for a client and had to explain for what felt like the millionth time the difference between a switch and a router? That […]

Synology DS Router 2.0 Software Review

Synology DS Router 2.0 Mobile App Review Synology, as a brand, has always been remarkably keen to highlight its software more than its hardware. That isn’t to say that the brand does not have some great hardware in its portfolio, but they would rather be known as a ‘solution’ provider, as opposed to a ‘hardware’ […]

Terramaster F4-422 NAS Review

Review of the Terramaster F4-423 NAS Drive The Network Attached Storage industry (NAS) unlike many areas of the tech world is actually surprisingly small in terms of the companies that fight for market dominance. With less than 10 big players and less than 5 of those being real marketing recognized, choosing a NAS solution is […]

Synology RT6600ax Router Review – Premium Networking? Reviewing the new RT6600ax router was always going to be quite a tall order.

Synology SRM 1.3 Software Review Part 1 – Design & Control

Synology Router Manager (SRM) 1.3 Software Review I think it would be fair to say that Synology is not a company primarily known for its routers, but more for their range of network-attached storage solutions.

QNAP TS-664 NAS Review

The QNAP TS-664 NAS Drive Review When choosing a NAS drive, I think it is safe to say that SIX bay servers are when things begin to get SERIOUS. You might have looked at the 2-Bay and 4-Bay solutions in the market and thought “that’s nice, but what about all my terabytes” or “cool idea, […]
