Hands-On: NETGEAR Stora

  • Excerpt: NETGEAR is attempting to make a network-attached storage as common as sand on the beach by introducing their Stora device. This system is designed for first-time users who do not want to learn server administration as a hobby. Plug in the system, run the CD – that’s it. But is it worth the $230 price [...

  • Excerpt: NETGEAR is attempting to make a network-attached storage as common as sand on the beach by introducing their Stora device. This system is designed for first-time users who do not want to learn server administration as a hobby. Plug in the system, run the CD – that’s it. But is it worth the $230 price to the average family? We’ve reviewed the Stora to find out. Stora comes with a terabyte of storage and a bag of multimedia features.

Netgear Stora MS200 1TB review

expertreviews.co.uk

  • Excerpt: Network-attached storage (NAS) devices that can accommodate multiple disks usually cost a lot more than single-disk models. However, Netgear's two-bay Stora is surprisingly affordable at less than £180, and it comes with a 1TB hard disk fitted. Fitting another disk is easy. The front panel slides off easily, exposing the empty second bay. A second disk simply slots in, with no tools required. To eject a disk, you just have to lift the lever on the back.

  • Summary: Доставшийся нам на тестирование экземпляр NETGEAR Stora в целом показал себя на достойном среднем уровне, а в тестах на скорость считывания данных и на время доступа при записи так и вовсе оказался в числе лидеров. Однако излишне, на взгляд специалиста, жесткий подход к программной организации устройства пришелся нам не совсем по нраву.
  • Pros: Простота настройки и эксплуатации; разумная производительность.
  • Cons: Невозможность более полного контроля над параметрами NAS; потребность в онлайновом канале для инициализации устройства.

  • Conclusion: Pensé pour le grand‑public, ce serveur Netgear Stora répond aux attentes de ceux désirant le plus simplement possible concrétiser la dématérialisation de leurs contenus. Le partage des fichiers audio, vidéo et photo en UPnP ( DLNA ) se fait le plus simplement du monde : soit à partir de l’explorateur de fichiers, soit via le navigateur Internet (Firefox, Safari, Internet Exploreur, etc.), par simple glisser‑déposer, dans les deux cas. Difficile de faire plus simple.
  • Pros: Évolutivité, Facilité d'utilisation, Accès via Internet aux fichiers, Gestion UPnP ( DLNA ), Baie vide pour deuxième disque dur, Garantie trois ans et support technique gratuit, Sauvegarde automatique sous ordinateurs Mac OS et Windows
  • Cons: Arborescence UPnP (DLNA) en anglais, Problèmes de partage de certaines vidéos, Support de Flickr, de Cooliris, des flux RSS et accès à distance via téléphone mobile payant, Pas de lecture Flac et MKV via navigateur Internet

  • Conclusion: Netgears Stora laat me met gemengde gevoelens achter. Netgear komt zijn belofte 'Anytime, anywhere, any media, any screen' wel na. Het apparaatje is strak en laat zich eenvoudig installeren bedienen. De interface is eveneens strak en zorgt ervoor dat je de meestvoorkomende mediabestanden direct vanuit de interface kunt afspelen. Ook het aanmaken van albums die je kunt delen met de buitenwereld zit goed in elkaar.
  • Pros: vormgeving;, gebruiksgemak;, interface;, delen van bestanden;, prijs.
  • Cons: geen plug-ins, dus functionaliteiten niet uit te breiden;, performance;, hot swappable, maar gebruik ervan wordt toch afgeraden;, moeten betalen voor basisfunctionaliteiten (Stora Premium).
