Synology Diskstation DS415play 4-Bay NAS Server
Synology Diskstation DS415play 4-Bay NAS Server
The hardware video transcoding could be a big selling point to people with large movie collections that might not all be recorded in common formats. Couple the hardware transcoding, DLNA certification, and the media serving plugins / apps, and the DS415play is all set to be the hub of your home entertainment, no matter what your other hardware includes... smart TVs, Media Center PCs, mobile devices, media players, etc.
D-Link DIR-880L AC1900 Wi-Fi Router
D-Link DIR-880L AC1900 Wi-Fi Router
For someone who is looking for a new router and wants to have the ability to get all of their current and (foreseeable) future wireless devices connected with ease, the D-Link DIR-880L AC1900 Wi-Fi router is a great choice. You get support for wireless b, g, n, a, and ac - as well as four Gigabit wired ports. The user interface is visually appealing and easy to navigate, and getting any of your devices connected to each other and the Internet should be simple.
Motorola Moto G on Republic Wireless
Motorola Moto G on Republic Wireless
I think the Motorola Moto G with Republic Wireless service may hit the sweet spot for many people tired of paying high cell phone bills. The Moto G is a solid phone that performs really well, and the network in my area had less dead zones than T-Mobile and AT&T. As is the case with all discount providers there are some concessions you make to get these lower prices, but the concessions at Republic Wireless seem minor.
Thecus N2310 2-Bay NAS Server
Thecus N2310 2-Bay NAS Server
The Thecus N2310 2-bay NAS server is a solid option if you are looking for a 2-bay device that doesn't waste your time and money with fancy extras and just gets down to serving your files from a RAID 0, 1, or JBOD array. For a small network this could be a good setup for sharing files and streaming media, and testing proved it will allow you to read or write at up to almost 90MB/s.
Synology Diskstation DS414j 4-Bay NAS Server
Synology Diskstation DS414j 4-Bay NAS Server
The Diskstation DS414j 4-Bay NAS server is just another fine example of what Synology is capable of. The aesthetics of the design are retro and understated, and with the minimal noise created by the device it will be able to disappear in most home or small office settings. With 4-bays available for configuration with the drives of your choice, you can choose just how much storage space you need, and what sort of drive array is best for your needs.
Kingston SSDNow mS200 240GB mSATA SSD
Kingston SSDNow mS200 240GB mSATA SSD
In real world use, the mS200 240GB mSATA SSD proved to be exactly what I expected. It made a notebook computer that didn't seem all that old seem so much faster and more enjoyable. The drive was capable of hitting its target read and write speeds (540MB/s and 530MB/s respectively) during the execution of benchmarks, but results will not look as impressive if the test selected uses incompressible data.

bequiet! Shadow Rock Slim Heatsink
The interesting thing about the Shadow Rock Slim is that despite the decision to leave the metal raw and untreated they did spent some time making the cooler look good. hardwareasylum.com
Thecus N5550 5-Bay NAS Server
At the end of the day the Thecus N5550 is a very solid product. What it lacks in smooth and polished web interface it makes up for in performance, value and in features. It is one of the most feature-packed NAS units we've seen and comes it at a lower price point than many 4-Bay NAS units without a display. The hardware under the hood is very comparable as well and you're not giving up any performance when you choose this unit as your main file storage server. bcchardware.com

QNAP TurboNAS TS-470 Pro NAS Server
Sometimes i feel that things are moving so fast in the electronics and PC hardware industry that i simply can't afford to look the other way not even for a minute. Take for example NAS devices/servers. It hasn't been more than a month since i last checked all the available models by the 4 leading manufacturers (QNAP, Thecus, ASUSTOR and Synology) and right now there are at least 10 more available ones in their product lines (some already available in retail and some just announced). So that alone means that things must be going even better for all those manufacturers than the last time i checked several sales charts almost half a year ago and with so many people using NAS servers at home for various things such as for file sharing, downloads, video recording and media playback that doesn't really come as a surprise. nikktech.com
