QNAP TS-239 Pro NAS server Video
The QNAP TS-259 Pro is a dual-bay NAS server that offers great performance and features for a high premium. It's a device best suited for environments with high networking demand and for those who possess an intermediate to advanced know-how of networking.
Despite its friendly price tag and its good looks, the Valkyrie Dual-Bay NAS server isn't a well-designed network storage device, and its slow performance will sure make you think twice about getting one.
The QNAP TS-109 Pro II is a single-volume NAS drive that offers a lot more than just network storage. It's a little pricier than its peers, but its many features--including PC-free downloads--are well organized and easy to use.
For those who possess decent networking know-how, the Synology Disk Station DS710+ makes an excellent NAS server for any environment. It's best suited for home office and small-business applications.
Thecus N4200 is a fast and reliable storage and backup server for small-business environments. However, its lack of some advanced features, its high learning curve, and the relatively high price might turn away those who want to get the most out of a NAS server.
The Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router WRT320N forces you to pick either the 2.4GHz or the 5GHz band for your wireless network. Given that, it's not an ideal choice for an environment with both types of wireless clients. The router offers good wireless performance and features a high-speed wired network that caps at 1,000Mbps.
For only $20 more than its single-core cousin, the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM's dual-core Atom CPU handles multitasking better, but this Netbook doesn't offer the features or performance we've seen in higher-priced "premium" alternatives.
The Nikon Coolpix S6000's features and performance are very good for its price, while its photos are best suited for small prints and Web use.
