Western Digital 8TB WD ShareSpace
26 February 2010
Summary: Read tests were better, but the ShareSpace fell far behind the Synology Diskstation DS409+ we used for comparison. Power consumption, on the other hand, was quite low: averaging just 32 watts while idle and 39 watts while writing. Aggressive pricing is the ShareSpace’s other saving grace: We found the box selling for just $1,000 on the Web.
Pros: Agressive pricing; large capacity; DLNA compatible; quiet; low power consumption.
Review: Western Digital ShareSpace 4TB Network Storage System
30 September 2008
Excerpt: With file sizes rapidly increasing and average consumers owning gigabytes of music, photos, and videos we’ve been seeing changes in the storage industry lately. Increased capacity has always been a trend, but now ease-of-use and accessibility are major factors as well. This has resulted in external hard drives becoming commonplace for casual users, as well as add-on storage being necessary for people that would probably not have considered them just a few years ago.
