Can This 2-Bay NAS Be Your Next Media Center Solution? – Qnap TS-251B Review

For the test platform, we connected to one of our controlled test benches. We installed Western digital Enterprise 3TB Drives which are 7200RPM drives while most NAS drives are 5400RPM. We did this to ensure the worst environment possible as it will show the NAS ability to keep up with high demand, high speed drives, along with vibration mitigation.
