Need a NAS box for the home or office, but don't want to spend a ton? This is a good working device for a great price (about 250). This product gets a 9/10 and their editor's choice award.

Here are Tech Gage's pros and cons:

  • "Pros
  • Price
  • NAS box that offers RAID 0, 1, JBOD
  • Quality made product
  • Supports hard drives up to 500GB
  • Dual gigabit NICs
  • Simple software
  • Ease of use
  • Cons
  • Manual could be a bit more in-depth
  • No eSATA (see the Thecus N2050 DAS) "

i like these and i think they are going to become more popular in the future. little mini-PC's that just connect to a network and store files for an entire home.
for me, it has to:
1) have eSATA support
2) hold at least four SATA HDD's
3) built in cooling
4) no limit on HDD size support, allow future upgrading (500GB limit? WTF)
5) gigabit ethernet
6) not a Sony product

although with the turn over of PC parts and with all the upgrading and old PC's people end up with, it's quite common to end up with an extra PC that you can turn into a file server.
