Websites focused on enterprise network storage, such as Computer Weekly and StorageReview.com, can help in those cases. We have not yet tested power consumption of the TS-251B, but don't expect it to differ from that of the TS-251A. And if you want to protect your data and backups from theft and natural disasters, a good NAS is capable of uploading files directly to a cloud backup service, too. If you prefer to use Plex, you will not have access to the hardware transcoding features, since Plex’s transcoding is CPU-bound and NAS devices in this price range just don’t have the horsepower to do that. DS Audio, DS File, DS Photo, DS Cloud, and DS Video are for accessing media. ... talking New York shit over a New York beat. For example, if you click on the File Services tab in the DSM control panel, it displays the key command you’ll need to access the file share on your PC (“DS218plus”) or Mac (“smb://DS218plus”). For example, you can set it up so that when you connect a thumb drive you’ve stored photos on, pressing the button will copy the entire contents of that drive over to a specific folder. Previously he tested and reviewed more than a thousand PCs and tech devices for PCMag and other sites over 17 years. If you do prefer ext4 for any reason, you can set up the DS218+ to use that file system instead of Btrfs when you create a volume. We've spent hundreds of hours testing dozens of routers, mesh kits, and extenders to find the best gear to get strong Wi-Fi throughout your home. You can quickly find and install new applications in Package Center. But somethin' told me "before you throw it away, put it on the turntable, see if you can find something on it". If you want to share and store data on your network, you may not need a NAS. It seemed like Nas was still appearing to discover ... and “Hustlers” makes magic with a Dr. Dre beat and cameo by The Game. In 2018, we tested one new model, QNAP’s TS-251B, against the Synology DS218+ and the other devices we tested for our 2017 update. No NAS is completely quiet, but to our ears the DS218+ was less noticeable than the QNAP TS-251A or TS-231P2. Many NAS devices have even added photo-management tools and file-syncing services that attempt to replicate various cloud storage offerings. However, it was later revealed that the track was actually John Rydgren and Bob R. Way's 1966 song "What Child Is This? We also had issues with any 4K video using the DTS audio codec, in which no sound would play. A NAS should detect a new drive and automatically re-create the mirrored array. Nas - Samples, Covers and Remixes on WhoSampled. The DS218+ had the best performance of the six NAS units we tested in 2017 and 2018, with unencrypted write speeds between 97 MB/s and 109 MB/s. It was a ten inch record from a Lutheran church, and it was pink with a black fish on it. Like the DS218+, we recorded speeds of 109 MB/s for large multi-gigabyte files, and around 90–101 MB/s transfer rates for folders filled with thousands of music files. There’s also the confusingly named Cloud Sync package, which allows you to sync or back up specific folders or your entire NAS to various cloud platforms, such as Backblaze, Google Drive, Amazon, and Dropbox, which makes creating redundant off-site backups very easy. As with DSM, it’s a good idea to check out the live demo of QTS before you buy so you can see how it works. If you’re curious about installing FreeNAS, this YouTube guide walks you through the process, and this forum post includes a list of hardware recommendations. Each NAS has its own manufacturer-specific version of Linux, and some are more approachable than others. He Dropped Out of College to Pursue Music in 2018. In fact, he only grew stronger and reasserted himself as a hip-hop great. Not only has it been critically acclaimed, but it reached #2 on the "Billboard" R&B/Hip-Hop chart and resided there for 28 weeks. Maintaining a NAS doesn’t take much effort, but you should keep a few things in mind. I remember I didn’t like the beat. This is your chance. Nas' brother Jungle appeared on “The Genesis” and said the following: Nas picked the beat for us to talk on in the background. This guide also won’t cover people who want a NAS that can support 1080p on-the-fly video transcoding via Plex Media Server. We checked to see if the NAS offered a secure cloud service for remote access, which would avoid having to mess with port forwarding and static IP addresses. While the DS218+ is a bit faster when transferring lots of smaller files, like during our music folder transfer tests, they are so close in performance that you’d likely not notice the difference unless you were monitoring both with a stopwatch. Wirecutter is reader-supported. Nicely done 🎧💪🔊 2017-06-07T00:55:31Z Comment by Clyde Cyrus. Lil Nas X is getting praise for how he handled a conversation about homosexuality with comedian Kevin Hart. It also supports a wide range of third-party apps, such as Plex, BitTorrent Sync, and GitLab. These include: "I'm like a whole lot of loot, I'm like crisp money / Corporate accounts from a rich company / I'm like ecstasy for ladies, I'm like all races / combined in one man; like the '99 summer jam.". When deciding which models to test, we paid attention to a number of key features that most home users needed: We also found a few features that were nice to have but weren’t dealbreakers for most people if they were missing: First we set up each NAS following its included install guide, if it had one. In the main menu you’ll find a security adviser that alerts you to malware, improper network configurations, out-of-date applications, weak passwords, and any systemwide configuration issues, though you will have to log in to the DSM interface regularly to see its advice. Logging in to DSM, we found another notification as well as instructions for how to rebuild the drive array in the Storage Manager once we replaced it. In our tests, the DS218+’s data-protection features worked as advertised. Our testing over the years has reinforced this conclusion, as has AnandTech’s two-part dive into NAS operating systems and features. Be sure to check the compatibility list of hard drives on the NAS vendor’s website so that you install supported drives. But if you have the extra dollars, want additional data redundancy and space, and don’t mind learning more about RAID, the DS418play is a good bet. If you need more storage space, the Synology DiskStation DS418play uses the same CPU, hardware encryption engine, and hardware transcoding engine as the DS218+, but it adds two drive bays. Craig Ellison, QNAP TS-X51A Series Reviewed, SmallNetBuilder, August 30, 2016, Chris Finnamore, QNAP TS-251A, Trusted Reviews, November 4, 2016, Jon L. Jacobi, QNAP TS-251A NAS Review: More media features than you can shake a stick at, TechHive, January 26, 2017, 5 Top Causes of Hard Drive Failure, Seagate, January 17, 2014, Orestis Bastounis, Western Digital Red 6TB review, TechRadar Pro, November 20, 2014. The DS218+’s interface, DiskStation Manager, is one of the most user-friendly operating systems on any NAS device. While these commands may be familiar to veteran systems administrators, new users or anyone who has forgotten the server name will welcome the embedded tip. So the first thing to do with any new NAS is to change the password on the admin account (both Synology and QNAP prompt you to do this during the initial setup). He has set up more backup systems, from NAS to cloud storage, for family members and friends than he cares to count. You can set those backups to happen on a schedule and optionally encrypt them before you upload them to another service. The entry-level TS-230 features a Realtek RTD1296 ARM Cortex-A53 quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM. Content "Halftime" features an up-tempo beat led by percussion and trumpets over which Nas rhymes. This NAS is best suited for professionals or anyone who wants to expand a NAS system with more storage down the line. That hardware encryption acceleration also didn’t help with SMB in-flight encryption at all, which slowed the file-transfer process to around 50 percent of the speed of unencrypted transfers. Learn more. Below that toolbar, you have a desktop where you can access Package Center (a store of sorts filled with add-on software), the file browser, the control panel (which includes all your settings), and a support area offering video tutorials, FAQs, and more. The WD My Cloud Home Duo is WD’s take on a beginner NAS, but the simplified design of the operating system introduces more problems than it solves. DiBella of Allmusic justifies the success of "Nas Is Like" stating: "Superproducer Premier comes to save the day...["Nas Is Like" is] nothing short of Illmatic perfection. Synology’s DSM software is easier to use than other NAS software, but it’s still not as intuitive as an operating system like Windows or macOS; even if you’re technically inclined, it will take a couple of hours to fully understand how to do anything beyond basic backups. And he wrote the verse in the studio. If you want to give someone the ability to upload files to the NAS, give that user write permissions as well as read permissions. The easiest way to measure real-world NAS performance, at least for how a home NAS will be used, is to copy files to and from the NAS and calculate the data rate. There’s also VPNPlus if you’re using the VPN server functions, DS Note if you use Synology’s notes app, and MailPlus if you use your NAS as an email server. Most people don’t need to store thousands of raw photo files, terabytes of raw video, gigabytes of lossless digital music, or backups of their Blu-ray collection, but a NAS is a useful tool for the people who do. [4] M.F. *At the time of publishing, the price was $290. Power-saving features won’t work if you enable any media server functions, because the NAS needs to be available all the time. On-the-fly transcoding is dependent on the file format, the various codecs, and the device you’re watching the transcoding file on, so your mileage will vary here. As we mentioned above, both Synology and QNAP sell many, many NAS devices, all of which run the same software but vary in processor type and speed, RAM, number of drive bays, and features. Both companies’ mobile apps are best in class among NAS devices—no other NAS provider comes close. We also received an email notification at the address we’d set up previously. Many NAS devices can also manage decent on-the-fly transcoding with their own apps, but Plex transcoding currently requires a lot of CPU power, and none of the models we tested were able to handle transcoding in Plex reliably. With each device, as it rebuilt the RAID 1 mirror, we confirmed that all data stored on the NAS was intact and accessible. And I was gonna throw it in the garbage, 'cuz it didn't look like it had anything hot on it. The DS418play has one fewer USB 3.0 port on the back but offers dual Gigabit Ethernet for link aggregation; this feature doubles the network bandwidth available to your NAS, though not many home routers support that function. Nas watched me build the beat from scratch. 'Illmatic,' the 1994 platinum-selling album by Nas, is the artist's best album and arguably the greatest rap album ever. QNAP provides a two-year warranty and excellent support both over the phone and via an online forum, plus a knowledge base and tutorials. Since 2015, we’ve tested a lot of NAS devices, including many that are now discontinued, such as the QNAP TS-251A, QNAP TS-251, Seagate Personal Cloud 2-Bay Home Media Storage Device, Synology BeyondCloud Mirror, Synology DiskStation DS214, Synology DiskStation DS216play, Synology DiskStation DS216+II, Asustor AS-5002T, and WD My Cloud EX2. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially since the WD My Cloud Home Duo doesn’t support encryption of any kind, it is unfortunate that you can’t adjust those settings in exchange for a speed boost when you’re in a secure environment. To simulate drive failure, we pulled a drive from the NAS while it was running. Our runner-up, the QNAP TS-251B uses the same Celeron processor and 2 GB of RAM, but the DS218+’s CPU is faster than the processor in nearly every other NAS currently available in this price range, and you’ll notice that speed difference when copying lots of files or performing multiple backups simultaneously. We also looked at Android and iOS mobile apps for accessing and administering the NAS. Now we hear the ‘Verbal Intercourse’ beat, and I’m like, ‘This the track I want you on.’ He was with it, but he didn’t know what rhyme to spit. Its read and write tests were also extremely slow compared with the results from other NAS boxes we tested. We’ll be testing replacements—the Synology DiskStation DS220+ and DS420+, and the QNAP TS-251D—in our next update. In-flight encryption protects your files during the transfer process, so it’s not something you need to worry about if you’re on your home network the whole time. The TS-251B is easy to upgrade, thanks to its PCIe-card expansion slot. Hip-Hop / Rap / R&B. For better or worse, instead of having one big app with tons of features, Synology takes a piecemeal approach to its mobile apps. NAS aka Network Attached storage devices help to overcome storage problems and gives your data a centralized place. We also connected a flash drive to one of the USB ports. Memorable lines include "You couldn't catch me in the streets without a ton of reefer/That's like Malcolm X, catchin' the Jungle Fever" and "I'm as ill as a convict who kills for phone time." We researched and tested to find the best-looking and best-sounding home theater equipment that will take your personal setup from functional to enjoyable. Some still ship with 1 GB of RAM or less. The fastest NAS we tested, it offers powerful hardware for the price, includes AES-NI hardware encryption acceleration for added security, has upgradable RAM, and comes with software that’s easy to use. If you have problems, you’ll usually need to comb through forum posts to answer your own questions instead of contacting support. Was remixed in 1 song. Nas praised Cam'ron as a good lyricist, but branded his album Come Home With Me as "wack". Hip-Hop / Rap / R&B. [FREE] Nas Type Beat - "Domestic Policy" This dope Nas type beat was produced by Tone Jonez! Discover all Nas's music connections, watch videos, listen to music, discuss and download. In our tests, file transfer in encrypted folders was around 60 percent of the speed of transfer in non-encrypted folders. I like the way you hit this beat better. It should allow transfers between the USB drive and the NAS. You can also turn the DS218+ on and off according to a schedule, and it supports Wake-on-LAN and multiple fan-speed modes, the latter of which can help reduce the overall noise of the DS218+. Prior to writing for a living, Joel was an IT tech and sysadmin for small, medium, and large companies. The DS418play has similar hardware and the same software as the DS218+ but offers two more drive bays for extra storage and data protection. You Should Know by PRhyme feat. If you’re curious, nearly every NAS maker, including Asustor, Thecus, and Zyxel, offers a live Web-based demo of its operating system that’s worth checking out. It also includes an HDMI-out port, which is handy for monitoring surveillance systems or if you want to view media directly from your NAS connected to a TV. NAS boxes that can manage 1080p on-the-fly transcoding through Plex are too expensive for most people—you’re better off running Plex Media Server on a computer or on an Nvidia Shield TV and using the NAS for media storage. Thorin Klosowski is the editor of privacy and security topics at Wirecutter. With Synology’s apps, we were able to play several 1080p MKV files on various devices over 802.11ac Wi-Fi without issue, but when we tried the same with three different 4K movie trailers, they were all unwatchable due to stuttering. Right now, that includes models from Asustor, Drobo, Netgear, Noontec, QNAP, Seagate, Synology, Thecus, WD, and Zyxel. * indicates testing in 2018; other testing performed in 2017. If the NAS allows you to set up SMS or email alerts, that’s even better. If you listen to “N.Y. Many routers have a USB port for connecting an external drive, but because routers have slower processors than our NAS picks and because their software isn’t purpose-built for file sharing, this setup will be slow and suitable only for the most basic file sharing and backups. The song is also notable for featuring one of the most sought-after samples by cratediggers. You can even keep the price pretty low with something like a Raspberry Pi–powered NAS for around $200, though even with a Raspberry Pi 3, a NAS like that won’t be very quick. It’s sold as a quick solution for home office users who need to keep all their data in one place. Screenshot: Thorin Klosowski, You get quick access to every package you install with DSM’s drop-down menu. Unlike a USB drive or an external hard drive, a NAS with two or more hard drives can provide data redundancy, copying the contents of one drive over to the other automatically. In addition to speed, the Synology DiskStation DS218+ offers a variety of backup and syncing options, plus it has mobile apps for media streaming, file management, and more. We installed 8 TB WD Red drives in each NAS, connected each model via Gigabit Ethernet to a Netgear Orbi router, and connected a desktop PC with Gigabit Ethernet to another port. Like the WD My Cloud Home Duo, the Apollo Cloud 2 Duo is a simplified NAS and comes packed with hard drives already installed. Lil Nas X bought the beat for just $30 from the website BeatStars, a marketplace where producers can upload beats and artists can purchase them. We also looked at the Apollo Cloud 2 Duo. The QNAP TS-251B uses the same Celeron CPU, and its performance was similar to the DS218+ during side-by-side tests, though the DS218+ was just a bit faster than the TS-251B when dealing with lots of small files. A network-attached storage device, or NAS, is a small always-on computer generally used for backing up computers and serving files to devices on your local network. It has one fewer USB port, but it adds another Gigabit Ethernet port for link aggregation, which can increase performance if you have a compatible router and multiple people use your NAS at once. It uses the same QTS management interface as QNAP’s other NAS devices—we like Synology’s DSM software a little more, but it’s largely a matter of preference. Unfortunately, it lacks basic features and third-party app support, including stuff like Plex, which even the WD model has. This model has the same CPU and memory specs as the DS218+, but with two more drive bays. He has professionally backed up data as diverse as news stories on plane crashes and Mariah Carey album art. A NAS should beep or flash an LED to alert you that something is wrong, and the interface should show a drive-failure notification. The Linux-based DiskStation Manager (DSM) software isn’t complicated; if you’ve used a Windows or Mac computer, you’ll be able to find your way around DSM and figure out how it works pretty quickly. Four-drive NAS devices are typically more suited to professional settings—and if you want to use one, having a good understanding of RAID storage management will help. Btrfs also features near-instant server-side copying, data integrity checks, and metadata mirroring, which supposedly helps with data recovery in the case of hard-drive damage. Screenshot: Thorin Klosowski, The interface in DiskStation Manager offers an overlay for system health as well as easy access to all the settings you need. Other NAS makers have been playing catch-up to QNAP and Synology on the operating system front, and while those other competitors are still nowhere near the usability of either in that regard—and most still have terrible customer support—they’re at least getting closer with their operating systems. Like most NAS boxes, the DS218+ supports multimedia streaming through Synology’s own apps, DLNA/UPnP, and iTunes. Design-wise, QTS takes at least some of its inspiration from iOS, loading up all your add-on packages as icons on a desktop. Most NAS devices can also act as email, database, and virtual private network (VPN) servers. Upgrade pick: Synology DiskStation DS418play, Offline Transcoding feature in Video Station, good understanding of RAID storage management will help, Seagate Personal Cloud 2-Bay Home Media Storage Device, QNAP TS-251A NAS Review: More media features than you can shake a stick at, The Gear to Get Reliable Wi-Fi in Any Home, The Best Tech and Apps for Your Home Office, The Best Gear for Building Your Home Theater. A good NAS has drive trays or slots that make the drives easy to remove but are sturdy enough to ensure that the drives fit tightly and securely, with no chance of getting disconnected by a random bump. Nas Is Like (DJ Mitsu the Beats Remix) by DJ Mitsu the Beats (2009) Hip-Hop / Rap / R&B. The song's music video, directed by Nick Quested, shows Nas rapping in the Queensbridge projects and features cameos by NBA player Ron Artest and fellow Queensbridge rappers Nature and The Bravehearts. If you want a real egregious Nas … The song is the sixth collaboration between Nas and producer DJ Premier. The file system shouldn’t have a huge effect on the file-transfer speeds, but it does introduce some features to Synology NAS units that other models don’t have, such as snapshots, which can protect folders from accidental deletion by making copies of shared folders periodically. It typically sells for less than $350 (diskless) as of this writing, its read and write speeds are the fastest of any NAS we tested, and it includes a modern Intel Celeron processor, hardware-level encryption, and a flexible and easy-to-understand interface with a wide variety of third-party apps. Synology has a demo version of the operating system available online; it’s worth checking out before you make your purchase. All our NAS picks have some sort of energy-saving feature. After Cam'ron heard of Nas's words, he appeared on Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 and performed a freestyle diss over the beat to Nas's "Hate Me Now", making reference to Nas's mother, baby mother and daughter. Joel became attracted to service journalism after answering many “What’s good?” questions while working as an IT manager and technician. We used Windows 10’s built-in Robocopy file-copying tool to read and write three datasets to each NAS: a 32 GB music folder with 6,154 MP3 files; and a folder with two large files, an 8.1 GB MKV file and a 7.07 GB Linux ISO file. The My Cloud Home Duo needs to be connected to the Internet if you want to use all its features, even within your home network. 2017-06-26T17:27:45Z Comment by Masta Q. Dope sounds bro you killed my favorite rappers track. A NAS is a computer, so it can do almost anything a Linux computer can do. Even with the DS218+’s hardware encryption acceleration, you’ll still see a ding to read-and-write performance with encryption turned on. Unlike other options, the drive bays are tool-less, so you don’t need a screwdriver to install a drive. It will also lack data redundancy because you’re backing up to only one drive, so you’re taking your chances in case of a drive failure. Some are still available but use older CPUs, are priced too high, or fail to meet our memory requirements, such as the Asustor AS-202TE and Synology DiskStation DS216. The TS-231P2 is a solid NAS, and if it drops in price, if you have no need for an HDMI port, or if you hate even just the possibility of a karaoke party breaking out anywhere near you, it’s worth a look. After testing five new two-bay network-attached storage (NAS) devices and comparing them against our previous picks, we found that the Synology DiskStation DS218+ is the best home NAS for most people. We recommend transcoding your video files ahead of time if you plan on using your NAS as a media server. A NAS with four or more bays gives you more storage options than a two-bay NAS does. The song's popularity caused various songs to borrow "Nas Is Like"'s beat, structure and lyrics: Nas, Foxy Brown, AZ, and Nature Present The Firm: The Album, https://www.allmusic.com/album/nas-is-like-mw0000241048, "Nas > Charts & Awards > Billboard Singles", Kendrick Lamar Freestyles on the Funk Flex Show [Video], https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Nas_Is_Like&oldid=951213108, Pages using infobox song with unknown parameters, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, Lyrics from "Nas Is Like" were later sampled in Braille and, The song was included in the soundtrack of, This page was last edited on 16 April 2020, at 01:38. If you plan to use the DS218+ to store video footage from an IP camera, you have to license each camera on your home surveillance system. We’ve collected our favorite picks—from dozens of guides and hundreds of hours of research and testing—to make your home office more productive and comfortable. But that approach takes up disk space on your computer and is more difficult to manage securely, and your computer has to be on all the time, which consumes more power than a NAS and might make the data inaccessible when your computer goes to sleep. Aside from the beefier processor in this model, the DS218+ (as well as all other current Synology NAS devices) uses a different default file system than others, called Btrfs (most other NAS models, including offerings from QNAP, use the ext4 file system). A four-bay NAS also lets you expand your storage capacity more easily since you can start with two drives and add more as needed, whereas the only way to expand the storage space on a two-bay NAS is to replace first one drive and then the other with higher-capacity drives. It’s almost as if Nas is just talking and consistently going (although Nas also does at points like Game and Eminem contrast syncopation and on-the-beat accent, see bar 4: “open windows that’s drafty to wakin’”, all of which avoids being on the beat and propels the music forward strongly). The playing field was much more level when we tested using our folder containing two large files: The DS218+ was in a dead heat with the TS-251B in our large-file write tests, and the differences between most models we tested, aside from the Apollo Cloud 2, Duo were minimal.
