Windows 7: NAS VS External Hard Drive Enclosure

02 Feb 2014   #21

Windows 7 Professional x64

Hi there,

I personally am a big fan of Synology, as a NAS solution its the preferred NAS system I sell to education and for very good reasons, in my opinion they are very reliable with a very nice and usable but not idiot proof (a good feature) operating system.

The link here is for a 4 bay system that allows for RAID 5 which in my opinion with 4 4TB drives is adequate for anything to be used in a home or small office.

This is just my personal opinion and I hope I have offered an insight into Synology systems!

Happy buying!
