Netcom eSATA RAID 5 NAS Review
Well like regular readers know, we are addicted to storage. We keep adding it just cause you never know when you need an extra TB or two. So we love when we come across products like the new Netcom NAS device.
With the ability to store up to 3 TB in RAID 0, 1 and 5 you are sure to find something to suit your needs. There is no network so you'll have to rely on this being hooked up to a central computer via a PCI host adapter that the others on your network can access. We would have liked to have seen an Ethernet connection added, but having an eSATA connection isn't so bad. Of course you will need a computer that can handle that, but you can always get an add on card for that.
No word yet on availability, but the price tag is around $2,000 so it doesn't come cheap. This seems like a great little device, but so far details are pretty scare. We would love to know if the disks are hot swappable and what media servers you could run on it. We will definitely be keeping our eye on this guy.
