One Big NAS Drive

Gear Patrol
13 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Network Accessible Storage used to be something only businesses needed to pay attention to. As the Napster turned BitTorrent generation continues to age though, the need to back up and maintain enormous libraries of digital photos, music, and videos has become much more of a mainstream consumer concern. That’s why storage brands like Seagate continue to expand their NAS offerings to hold more for less, all the while being easier to set up.

Review: Seagate BlackArmor NAS 440 4TB

Geek.com
26 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Seagate has long been known as a reliable provider of storage products. While these include hard drives and direct-attached devices the company has not previously been a major name in networked storage, which is one reason that the release of the BlackArmor NAS was a big move for them. Additionally Seagate carried over the BlackArmor name from its existing encrypted external hard drive product, so it seems that had high hopes for the release.

Review Of The Seagate BlackArmor NAS 440

  • Excerpt: The LCD screen on the front panel, displays the status of the USB drives connected to it, and supplies info such as link status, IP address, data, time, etc. There are two unmarked buttons to the right hand side of the LCD, which are supposed to be the directional keys for the LCD. They may be a little confusing at first, but you get used to it real quick.

  • Excerpt: Last month we reviewed Western Digital’s MyBook World Edition, a small, white, single-drive, one-terabyte NAS box aimed solidly at Joe User. This month, we have the Seagate BlackArmor NAS 440, the MyBook’s polar opposite in many ways.  It’s big, it’s black, it’s user-serviceable, comes with four Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB drives, and is marketed toward small businesses without a dedicated IT staff.
  • Pros: Fast, beefy; powerful web interface; includes 10 backup licenses.
  • Cons: May be overkill for home users; pricey.

  • Excerpt: With the growing popularity of cloud-based storage solutions, such as the Amazon S3 and Nirvanix services, many businesses--both large and small--are eschewing traditional onsite file servers, and instead opting for offsite, third-party storage solutions.
