It has certainly been awhile since we have had a two-bay NAS come through the lab here at TweakTown, with our last unit being the MyCloud EX II from WD.
Two-bay units like the Seagate NAS are typically targeted towards consumers wanting a simple network storage solution where they can store their photos, videos and music, and possibly access it via cloud infrastructure.
The latest lineup of NAS appliances from Seagate comes from the acquisition of LaCie. Built upon the Marvell Armada 370 platform, the two-bay unit we have in for review today adds to that with 512MB of DDR3, two USB 3.0 ports and a single gigabit Ethernet port.
New to the Seagate NAS lineup is the introduction of NAS OS 4, another product coming from the LaCie division, albeit reconfigured to fit the latest products. RAID modes included in the Seagate NAS include 0 and 1, and optionally if you so choose, you can enable SimplyRAID, which detects the disks installed and configures them in the most efficient manner, though it does carry a unique feature where it can handle disks of different capacity's similar to the way Drobo works with BeyondRAID.
Let's carry on now and take a close look at the unit.
Pricing and Availability
The Seagate NAS in its two-bay configuration can be had for $169.99 without disks, while carrying options for 2, 4, 8 and 10TB capacities for $249.99, $349.99, $499.99 and $699.99, respectively.
The Seagate Two-Bay NAS carries a one-year warranty.
