General Performance

The S358BU33ERM unlike the TX-800P is made by StarTech. There always other brands out there like StarTech 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.

About Connections

One USB3 port on this StarTech 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. There is one eSATA port on S358BU33ERM giving you up to 6Gb/s transfer speeds.

About Usage

Only disadvantage with DAS boxes, is data sharing capabilities, compared with NAS functionality.

Price And Warranty

This box comes with 2 year warranty for your peace of mind and long term hardware security. This StarTech is £392.00 cheaper than the most expensive unit TX-800P.
