Upgrading a desktop PC is a piece of cake, but for a laptop it's more difficult. However, the benefits in performance and cost-saving can be huge. Here's how to do it.
Intel and ARM basically own the NAS market when it comes to the processor inside. But is that about to change?
The PowerEdge VRTX is compact, about the size of a desktop PC. The design makes it suitable for both server racks and offices, but without the front panel it's obvious this is more than a desktop.
The design of the QNAP TS-470 looks exactly like that of the other QNAP NAS devices we've tested, but looks can be deceiving. Inside, a 2.6 GHz processor is churning away.
Synology has lots of choice in their product line-up, but their impressive NAS devices tend to have one common quality: they're very expensive. With the DS214se, Synology wants to change that.
Shuttle, the company responsible for the XPC mini-PCs, also began making NAS devices fairly recently. About a year ago we tested the OmniNAS KD20, and today we take a closer look at its successor.
The advantage of having a NAS with two disks is safety. You can configure it in RAID 1, so that when one disk fails, you don't lose any data. For back-ups it's a nice fail-safe to have.
Most of the time, we review products from the usual suspects. It's always nice when we get to review a product from a company that's new to us, and today is one of those times.
It's perhaps not as deluxe as some of the top-of-the-line models, but QNAP's new midrange NAS has a lot to offer in other ways. But is the new release too complete for what it's capable of?
The Zbox is tiny for sure, but technically speaking it's a little miracle, all clichés aside. Despite its limited size it is surprisingly versatile, even when compared to much bigger machines.
A large range of new notebooks have been released by HP targeted at the business segment as part of HP's ProBook and EliteBook series. We had a chance to check them out.
Network-attached storage, or NAS, can be indispensable for collectors, companies, and anyone who wants their storage to be large and secure. The guys at Hardware.info break down your best options.
This could be perfect for you if you own a business that needs to store large amounts of information safely and easily or if you're a collector with lots of data to manage.
The number of NAS devices using the new Intel Atom CE5300 series is growing; we previously reviewed the Thecus N2520, and today we'll take a closer look at the Asustor AS-302T.
The first two models are intended for desktop use and are called DiskStation. The RackStation is a model that will fit into a 19in rack, therefore it is more aimed at the business segment.
Let's be honest, the case of this 5big Office+ probably doesn't look anything like any other server or NAS you've ever encountered before - we'll take a closer look at what goes into it.
We have recently reviewed a lot of NAS devices, but now it's Thecus' turn, and its new N4100EVO seems a relatively affordable and very comprehensive NAS for its £240 pricetag.
It is based on the Intel Atom D2700 and equipped with 1GB of RAM, and while it isn't cheap, it's a very fast and comprehensive solution.
A workstation is designed to be a true workhorse. It is designed and developed for professionals who need high performance and stability for the specific applications they use.
A read speed of more than 90MB/s, a solid metal case, room for two drives and even USB 3.0? It sounds like a fairly expensive NAS, but in the case of the ReadyNAS Duo V2, it isn't.
The TS-412 is deifferent to many of QNAP's other products, packing room for four disks and a relatively reasonable pricetag of £263.
The number of devices compatible with Thunderbolt is growing; we recently reviewed a number of motherboards with Thunderbolt, and now we are putting the Lacie 2big Thunderbolt to the test.
Calling the Thecus N5550 a NAS is almost selling it short, because it's much more than that; it's a network server for home or the office, and you can use it to download files and more.
You have to reach pretty deep into your wallet for these, so Hardware.Info tested both models to find out if they're worth the money and how they compare with the competition.
