Final Thoughts

Before NAS specific hard drives came to the market, some systems were built with ill-equipped desktop HDDs, and others with enterprise products with more features than needed for the installation. The WD Red and Seagate NAS brought us out of the dark ages for smaller systems. The next logical step is to move forward and tackle larger NAS systems, which is a rapidly growing market.

 

One reason for the SMB NAS market's growth in popularity is the number of roles these products converge upon. In our NAS reviews, we talk about file, email, database, cloud, and download services, but those are only the tip of the capabilities offered in modern day NAS systems.

 

The most recent products introduced on-system virtualization and other features that put more emphasis on random performance. The NAS is no longer just a vault for large sequential file storage and playback. To meet these new demands, Seagate has increased the spindle speeds, and tuned the DRAM buffer.

 

Without serious competition in the 5TB and 6TB size, these models come at a significant premium. The Enterprise NAS 4TB, 3TB, and 2TB models are priced to compete with existing products on the market, and offer an excellent five-year warranty.
