Introduction & Hardware Specifications and Pricing
Every once in a while, we get the opportunity to review new products from vendors that are in the process of gauging the market. TerraMaster is a professional storage company based in China, which has garnered success in over 40 countries worldwide. They offer a wide range of products including two to eight bay network storage solutions, along with your typical Firewire and eSATA/USB DAS storage.
Building off what the company learned with the first release of the F2 NAS, TerraMaster went back to the drawing board, adding in a much cleaner and refined firmware, along with removing the DAS feature through USB 3.0. This allowed TerraMaster to focus on the NAS implementation rather than having a multi-functional device that caused so many issues in the original design.
Today we spend some time looking closely at the new F2 NAS 2 from TerraMaster.
Hardware Specifications and Pricing
Modern NAS servers have moved beyond data storage through a wire network. In order to get the most out of a NAS, you need to look at the extra I/O hardware and the mountain of potential software features.
The foundation of the F2 NAS 2 lies in the Marvell 6282 SoC that is clocked to a nice 1.6GHz. 512MB of DDR3 memory complements the NAS, with an additional 512MB of NAND flash holding the OS. This unit accepts two 3.5" HDDs, offering 8TB of capacity in today's market.
On the back of the unit, you will find a single Gigabit Ethernet port, along with a USB 2.0 and eSATA port for connecting printers or external hard drives.
Pricing of the F2 NAS 2 comes in with a MSRP of $199. TerraMaster offers a one year warranty on the F2 NAS 2.
