Western Digital 8TB WD ShareSpace

  • 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.
  • Cons: Slug slow; uses WD drives exclusively; can't schedule back-ups; no eSATA.
