Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 16TB RAID5 4-Bay NAS Review

29 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Having a drive vendor manufacture a NAS to work with their own line of drives is a welcomed approach to mass storage technologies. With this being Western Digital’s first revisions of their own NAS, a system that from the outside looks the part and on paper has a fair amount to offer shows that they have done some good research into what is needed and that they have what is needed to delve into this particular market.

WD Sentinel DX4000

8 March 2013
  • Conclusion: WD is expected to become a major player in centralised business storage, and one of its first efforts - the Sentinel DX4000 - shows that the company has what's required to succeed in this market. Well built and suitably easy to use, the DX4000 offers up to 16TB of storage in a package that's simple to configure and maintain, from both an admin and client perspective.

Expert Review

  • Summary: Western Digital has delivered an interesting product here. On the one hand, they have made it clear that they are aiming for the SMB and SOHO market. On the other, they have put features into the NAS that make it closer to an enterprise product. Since they are aiming for the Sentinel to be a plug and play appliance for the small office, they can’t be docked for doing things like limiting the types of replacement drives that can be installed.

Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 Review

17 December 2011
  • Summary: WD accomplished what it wanted, bringing enterprise grade software and hardware that's easy to use to the SMB with the Sentinel DX4000. As we look at the Sentinel as a potential line of many other NAS devices, Western Digital is certainly pointed in the right direction and poised to be a major player in the NAS market. It offers the most serviceable design, with spring loaded hot-swap trays that don't even require a screwdriver to install or replace a hard drive.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Dual power supplies, dual LAN with fail-over, Microsoft Storage Server software is easy to work with
  • Cons: Excellent build quality, Dual power supplies, dual LAN with fail-over, Microsoft Storage Server software is easy to work with, Excessive RAID rebuild times

The Sentinel DX4000 is a good option for small offices looking for a unit with easy to use back up and remote data access features

Good Gear Guide.au
5 August 2013
  • Summary: The WD Sentinel DX4000 can be used effectively as a storage, back up, and remote access solution for small businesses. It's easy to configure back up schedules for networked computers, and setting it up for remote data access doesn't require great networking knowledge. WD needs to improve the documentation and support aspects of this device though.
  • Pros: Decent build quality, Relatively easy to use and maintain, Good remote data access
  • Cons: Could use better support and documentation, Recovery process didn't work

REVIEW: WD Sentinel DX4000

25 April 2012
  • Summary: A late entrant in the crowded Network Attached Storage (NAS) market, the Sentinel DX4000 certainly stands out from the competition and for a number of reasons. To begin with, it’s from disk manufacturer Western Digital and, unlike a lot of others, comes pre-configured with disks inside ready to start working.
