Excerpt: If you don’t need a lot of storage, Seagate’s diminutive BlackArmor NAS 220 can be tucked into a bookshelf or the even the corner of your desk where it will quietly serve the needs of a small office or workgroup with as many as 20 PCs. The NAS 220 has two drive bays and can purchased with either one or two terabytes of capacity; we reviewed the 2TB model, which is street-priced at $279.
Pros: Relatively fast read speeds; useful software utilities; integrated iTunes and DLNA media servers; quiet.
Cons: Small capacity; no integrated BitTorrent client; no eSATA port.
