    The TS-251 is the most capable and versatile two-bay NAS box in its price range. But it’s pricey and its mobile media features aren’t fully implemented.

    MSRP: $400 (street price with 1GB of memory and no drives. Street price as reviewed, with 4GB memory and two 3TB drives is $700).

    Pros

    • Good performance
    • Massive software feature set
    • Can replace several devices

    Cons

    • No locks on the drive bays
    • You'll need to expand its memory to use its VM features
    • New on-the-fly video encoding isn't up to snuff
