General Performance

There always other brands out there like Promise which are often innovative. You might not get the same user experience comparing with other better known brands. But sometimes you might not need it. This box has i5 processor. Similarly like i7 it could likely have a "turbo boost" when needed.

About Connections

With four LAN ports this box is making good enterprise level NAS. Five USB3 ports on this Promise is offering you up to 5Gb/s transfer speeds of external devices. It is fast enough to get your files through fairly quickly with this speed and make backing up with an external drive or Apple Time Machine a quick and easy process.

About Usage

With 8 bay unit you are having additional advantages. You can choose from number of RAID solutions to set up. There could be RAID that saves your data even if one of the drives fail so you can still recover your data. This would be slightly more safe option to keep your data. Besides you can still access your documents or media files over your private network or even internet. You may install Plex Media Server on this box. Plex lets you easily create a feature rich and practical home media playback system. Some boxes offer real time transcoding functionality. That let you stream your media hustle free, based on your device speed or screen size. Please contact us to find transcoding compatibility list.

PLEX TRANSCODING


This NAS feature Intel Core i5 2.7GHz Quad-Core (max 3.3GHz) processor which will let you transcode videos on the PLEX. This will allow you to watch videos remotely from anywhere you can connect to the internet. The i3 CPU will transcode all HD and Full HD videos including quite few 4K videos. The i5 and i7 will pretty much transcode any video you want. The difference will be the number of simultaneous streams. The i7 obviously can cope with more streams than i5.

Price And Warranty

This box comes with 3 year warranty for your peace of mind and long term hardware security.
