Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510


Before we get started with testing, let's take another quick look at the Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510. The EonNAS Pro 510 scored a Features Award in our review, but data transfer performance was slower than the fastest on the market in many of our single user tests.

The EonNAS Pro 510 is a five-bay unit that uses a ZFS files system. Older Thecus software had ZFS, but since releasing OS 5, Infortrend is the only NAS manufacture offering the file system in this price range.

The Pro 510 is feature rich outside of the software features. The unit has a LCD display panel for easy PC-less NAS setup and activity LEDs for network and disk activity.

A USB port on the front of the unit.

The Pro 510 runs cool thanks to a fan on the back of the NAS and vents on the front and side of the NAS.

On the back we found several port options that include eSATA, two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports and a VGA port.

Most users will move data in and out of the NAS via the two gigabit Ethernet ports.
