Thecus-N7510 (5)

Thecus is no slouch when it comes to producing affordable NAS solutions. They have been producing some of the best performing NAS at an unbeatable price point for as long as I can remember. With the introduction of their Vision Series, Thecus has put the pressure on. Their N7510 NAS brings some interesting things to the table, 7 bays of storage loving goodness, great looks, and a fantastic price point.

ASUSTOR AS-302T Review

ASUSTOR AS-302T (1)

NAS manufacturers are hitting the home theater enthusiast scene pretty hard. Asustor has joined the charge and thinks they have a NAS that can steal the spotlight. They are packing as much as they can into these powerful little boxes and people are eating it up. Asustor impressed us with their AS-608T; can they keep up the good work with the AS-302T?

Lian Li PC-Q28 Review

Lian Li-PCQ-28 (18)

Lian Li confidently accepts the challenge. Read More »

Buffalo TeraStation 5400 Review

Buffalo-TS5400D (3)

When it comes to storage, there are always those names you hear more often than others. No matter where I go, or what company I visit, there is always a Buffalo NAS being used.

However, in the current state of "throw everything and the kitchen sink at it" NAS market, can they keep up? Buffalo is the brand, and the TeraStation 5400 is the subject. Read More »

Drop Dropbox with QNAP

QNAP-TS-269PRO (18)

Having data at my fingertips is a necessity in my world; and having services like Dropbox around made things very easy for me, especially with their mobile apps. Unfortunately, I have some issues with using services like Dropbox like having your data stored on their servers. Additionally, their free services just don't give you enough space.

QNAP TS-269 PRO NAS Review

QNAP-TS-269PRO (26)

It is so easy for us at C.O.D. to get carried away with storage solutions that are a bit over the top. Although there are a few of you out there that get excited about 6 bay and 8 bay NAS, the majority of people I know are more likely to look for a 2 bay or 4 bay solution for their home or small business. In an effort to fill the gap, QNAP has decided that we should take a look at their latest 2 bay NAS, the QNAP TS-269 PRO. Read More »
