Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220 6TB Network Attached Storage Review
8 June 2013
Excerpt: The NAS box comes in many shapes, sizes and configurations and from my experience most all of them are very useful. Seagate is a huge storage company and it’s a just a logical next step for them to produce their own NAS box. Up for review today is the NAS 220, which is a 6tb NAS box, it has two Seagate 3tb drives inside of it in a default Raid 1 configuration for a usable capacity of 3tb which can be a lot.
Summary: The BlackArmor NAS 220 isn’t the absolute fastest NAS on the market, but it delivered very good performance in our tests. A single terabyte of storage won’t accommodate very many users, but the data redundancy of RAID 1 will protect whatever data you store on the box. And Seagate’s software and remote-access service add significant value to a well-priced product.
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.
