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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
