We are going to talk about a product from Promise today. A well-known maker of RAID systems and controllers, this developer has recently entered the SOHO sector of the Network Attached Storage market with two products, NS2300N and NS4300N, which make up the SmartStor series. The former model is a dual-disk NAS and the latter is a quad-disk one. In this review we will focus on the junior model.

The NS2300N looks promising with its specifications. This is what we might expect from such a respectable developer as Promise, actually. Let’s see if the first impression is not misleading.
