Before this unit arrived, I researched the current state of the two bay NAS market. What I found was crap, poorly designed plastic boxes with inadequate processors and nice units that were overpriced like the QNAP TS-269 that Newegg has now for nearly $600. The Infortrend EonNAS 200 is a nice fit right in the middle. It has the same similar performance to other high spec $500+ models, but costs more than $100 less.
Certainly a few more megabytes per second of performance would have been nice, but overall the Infortrend EonNAS 200 is a nice entry level NAS that can protect your data when used in RAID 1. Most buyers in this category are more interested in data security, both physical protection from a drive failure and user management security, than they are performance. With that in mind, the EonNAS 200 does very well and keeps your data safe.
Being able to transfer data to and from your NAS at 100+MB/s is always nice and makes those large file transfers less painful. This unit didn't hit the century mark in our tests, but came close when writing data to the NAS.
At $369.99 it's difficult to say this is an entry-level NAS, but the reality is this is where you want to start out at if you value your data. The cheap plastic $150 dual bay units deliver half of the throughput of the EonNAS and are made from questionable components. The unit we looked at today isn't a plastic box with an unnamed processor on the spec sheet. You get real Intel reliability and nearly all of the enterprise features that provide peace of mind. This is your data, don't put it at risk.
