Seagate PRO NAS DP6 Review

Seagate fine job of limiting access to the internal components.  There is a nice mix of Torx and Phillips Head to make it just annoying enough that you may not crack her open.  There is no security tape and no indication that the internal memory is upgradeable or inaccessible for that matter.

Once the Torx are removed, the noctua fan presents itself.  I am happily surprised that Seagate chose a name brand fan instead of a $0.23 fan from alibaba.com.

The system board is relatively easy to access.  The cover can be removed with just a few screws and the system memory is front and center.

Thecus W5000 NAS Review

Just when I thought it was safe to open a box again, Thecus drops one at my door and tells me that they have produced the First Ever Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Essentials NAS. After coming hot off the heals of the Buffalo WSS 5400 NAS review, I thought I would have a break to get back to some good ole fashioned Linux based NAS reviews, I guess not. Having liked the Buffalo NAS, I can't wait to see what Thecus is able to accomplish with their W5000 5-Bay premium NAS.
