Specifications, Availability and Pricing
There are two significant categories for NAS products, the hardware and the software. Let's take a look at the hardware GIGABYTE chose to use in the GR-EZI04H 4-Bay NAS and on the next page we'll dive into the software.
The GIGABYTE GR-EZI04H is a 4-bay NAS that uses an Intel Atom D2500 processor running at 1.8GHz. The dual-core Atom is a low power processor that is faster than you might imagine. Since our NAS shipped with an embedded version of Linux that was slimmed down for NAS use, there is very little overhead for the processor and RAM to run in the background. Paired with the 1.8GHz processor is a 2GB DDR3 SODIMM form factor stick of RAM. This can be removed and a 4GB stick used instead. 2GB is a solid choice for the GR-EZI04H and twice as much capacity as many other products in this price class.
As we mentioned the GR-EZI04H is a 4-bay unit and with 4TB HDDs you can achieve up to 16TB of storage internally. The NAS also has four USB ports (dual 3.0 and dual 2.0), and you can even attach your DAS storage devices to expand the overall storage capacity.
Connecting to your NAS is possible through dual gigabit Ethernet ports that can run on their own to separate networks.
At the time of writing, the GIGABYTE GR-EZI04H wasn't available in Google Shopping, but we were told the NAS has an MSRP of around $700. As we all know MSRP is rarely internet prices and in this case it's a good thing.
The $700 price point is above that of the Thecus N4800, one of the best 4-bay NAS units on the market today and possibly one of the best bang for the buck NAS products of all time.
