Conclusion

Notwithstanding its good performance, the tested NAS falls short of my expectations. Besides high speed, the only good thing about the TS-S402 is the efficient cooling of HDDs, but it is achieved at a high level of noise. In its other parameters this model cannot match its opponents and its price of about $180 looks somewhat too high in comparison. Summing it up, I would not recommend you to invest your money into the TS-S402 if you need a really functional device. It would be better to add some more and buy an inexpensive model from Synology or QNAP. The price/performance ratio of the TS-S402 may be acceptable if you need just a very basic NAS.

Highs:

  • Easy installation of HDDs
  • Good performance
  • Print-server
  • iTunes server
  • Can download torrents
  • NFS support
  • Copying data from removable USB storage with a single button
  • Efficient cooling system

Lows:

  • Unsightly design
  • Short and stiff HDD cables
  • Flimsy door of the disk compartment
  • Rather high level of noise
  • Small indicators
  • Only supports top-level folders
  • Low functionality of firmware
