Now that we’ve discussed the main aspects of the NAS200, it is still a question for us what was its developer’s goal. Considering the low functionality and very low performance of the device, its very appealing price (about $150) cannot be a decisive argument in its favor. This NAS can accommodate two disks, but this would only be beneficial if you build a RAID1 configuration as this RAID type is meant for higher data security in the first place. The other variants of using the internal hard disks are no better than a single-disk NAS due to the low bandwidth.
Of course, NAS200 also has a number of indisputable advantages, yet we wouldn’t recommend it for purchase. You should better spend the money for a good single-disk NAS that will be more functional and faster.
