We have only reviewed Network Attached Storage devices that had one internal hard disk, but RAID technology has long become available to home users, and it would be logical to implement it in NAS as well. There are already a number of NAS devices available with support for two or even four internal HDDs. It means you can build a RAID array to increase the data-transfer speed or the security of disk data.

This review is about one such device. It is the dual-disk NAS200 from Linksys. Besides its main capabilities we’ll talk about below, this NAS is very appealing for its price. It is comparable to the price of single-disk devices of this class.

We’ll check out how efficient this offer is. If the NAS200 is really good, you won’t have to pay extra for dual-disk devices from other brands.
