TerraMaster’s TRAID Expertise Arrives on Two Price range NAS Gadgets – Evaluation Geek



After a protracted wait, TerraMaster lastly presents price range variations of its next-gen NAS gadgets. The brand new F2-223 and F4-223 make the most of a good Intel Celeron N4505 CPU, and notably, they assist TerraMaster’s TRAID format.

Whereas not as highly effective as its 423-series gadgets, these new TerraMaster NAS merchandise ought to ship speedy and power-efficient file backups. And their Intel Celeron N4505 processor is highly effective sufficient for Plex streaming, although it could wrestle with a number of cases of {hardware} transcoding.

Spec-wise, the F2-223 and F4-223 are virtually equivalent. They each run TOS 5 and use the identical processor. Plus, they sport a pair of 2.5G Ethernet ports (for as much as 5 Gbps with Hyperlink Aggregation). The one distinction is drive choice—the F2-223 has two drive bays, whereas the F4-223 has 4 bays.

You may also improve these NAS gadgets with as much as 32GB of dual-channel RAM (they arrive with 4GB by default), or plug in an NVMe SSD to enhance storage effectivity and enhance caching.

TerraMaster additionally included TRAID assist in these new NAS gadgets. The TRAID format is much like Synology’s Hybrid RAID system, which makes use of versatile disk array administration to supply improved redundancy safety and disk house utilization.

Pricing is clearly the massive draw right here. The TerraMaster F2-223 prices simply $300, whereas the four-bay F4-223 sells for $440. My solely concern is that the 423-series gadgets, which use a sooner processor, solely price about $40 greater than these new merchandise.
