This handy tool will help you find the best performing NASes. It crunches through our deep product performance databases and sorts products into comparative rankings so that you can easily see which products perform the best without having to click through pages of charts.

NASes are ranked based on performance only. Product features, support and reliability are not taken into account in the rankings.

The default view is Total NAS performance ranking sorted by Total Rank. Rank values are relative with lower = better.

Use the Rank selector to view the sub-rankings that make up the total rank. Use the [Switch To Sort By PRICE] link to sort the view by price.

Other functions available:

  • Click on the product name to see the review
  • Click on Performance to see the performance values used to calculate the rank
  • Click on Features to see a feature summary
Class (Processor type used in NAS) Key: Atom=Intel Atom, uP=General purpose processor, SoC=Application specific processor, often ARM-based. -N indicates number of processor cores.
