Final Thoughts


The final verdict for the Promise SmartStor DS4600 really comes down to the consumer and how it is going to be used. If you are going to attempt to use the DS4600 as a large hard drive to store workable material, like editing several video clips together then forget about it, you are going to need something more powerful. If you are a looking to just store data like pictures, music, movies or documents and not need to access them at high speeds then the DS4600 can be one of the best options around. The whole thing just really comes down to personal use and if you are honest with yourself about it the DS4600 could end up being a great value solution.


Speaking of value, as long as you are just looking for a long term storage solution, at 324.99 USD the Promise SmartStor DS4600 is a really good deal. Once you figure in four 1TB HDDs for 320 Dollars you have less than 650 Dollars wrapped up in a RAID 5 device with enough storage to handle most people's personal data collection. The real issue here is redundancy and it is something that we all need.
