Summary: Today we are going to talk about the new NAS storage system from Western Digital based on Intel 1.8 GHz Atom dual-core processor and featuring two hard drives inside. It is also is powered by Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials and is targeted for SMBs with 25 client devices or less.
Excerpt: As the most expensive server in our roundup we had high expectations for WD’s SOHO server offering. It’s obvious that the bulk of the cost has gone into the storage with a whopping 4TB of storage space — a country mile ahead of the competitors. However as you’ll see from our review this emphasis on storage space has come at the cost of functionality as there’s not much else that the default DX4000 can do.
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

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
