Chances are you are not familiar with Proware Technology and to be honest we really didn't know them either, at least until a couple of months ago when they asked us to have a look at their MiniEPICa Series EP-m501-AA DAS enclosure. Getting to know Proware after that review was quite easy; the MiniEPICa really rocked our world by accepting a wide range of 2.5 inch drives including SSDs and connecting to a system via eSATA. The box was so small that I couldn't keep it on the floor by my desktop without kicking it half way across the room every time, forgetting it was there.
If the MiniEPICa was small, then the EPICa EN-T800 SATA / SAS NAS is the polar opposite. The EN-T800 is a massive 8-drive NAS server that is much taller, much heavier and much beefier than any NAS server we have ever tested. To say the NAS is built like a tank is an understatement, this is a missile bunker. Don't let the industrial look fool you, the EN-T800 has many of the features we are seeing from industry leaders Thecus and QNAP, like a front illuminated setup display.
The Proware EN-T800 uses a Linux operating system just like many of the other high end NAS servers we have tested and offers all of the RAID options that you would expect from a flagship class product.
Today we will be testing the Proware EPICa Series EN-T800 with our industry standard NASPT software and put the new NAS up against Thecus' N7700 Pro that we reviewed last month. Can Proware's latest offering compete with one of the industry's best NAS servers? Let's find out.
