Conclusion: It's too early to say whether or not Shuttle can use its expertise as a small-form-factor manufacturer to become a major player in the competitive NAS marketplace, but with the Omninas KD20, it's headed in the right direction. Attractively designed with sufficient performance, this £120 solution covers most of the basics for the home or small-office user.
Excerpt: The Shuttle OmniNAS KD20 is a relatively low-cost two-bay NAS enclosure built with media streaming in mind. The OmniNAS KD20 lacks support for advanced features such as iSCSI targeting and can't be used as a web or FTP server; instead, it aims to make life as simple as possible for users who want their NAS to function as a media server, USB print server, simple backup target or even as a BitTorrent client.
Excerpt: Shuttle kjenner vi best som produsent av mini-pc-er. Strengt tatt er det nødvendigvis ikke så mye som skiller en NAS fra en liten pc – flere NAS-produsenter benytter også prosessorer man finner igjen i pc-er.
