Benchmarks - Power Consumption and Acoustics

 

Our power consumption testing involves running the power supply from the NAS through the output on our Kill-A-Watt meter. Results are recorded at several intervals including idle, peak and after the drives enter standby.

Power consumption of the F2 NAS 2 was refreshing to say the least. Here we found the NAS to reach a peak of 21 watts during testing, with an average of 17 watts idle and 14 watts after the drives entered standby.

 

Acoustics are measured from a distance of one foot with our IEC Type II Sound Level Meter.

Acoustics came in with an idle 33.7 dBA and 36.3 dBA at its peak.
