World's first wireless Nas, apparently

Security for virtualized datacentres

Initiating the download is still fiddly, however: you first have to download the relevant torrent file from its Internet location using your computer, copy it to a location on the Nas, point the MyXerver Pro Bittorrent client at the file, then monitor the download progress for a while to make sure it is working. A slicker, more user-friendly interface would be appreciated.

MyXerver Pro MX3800

Also available in pearl white version

While in active use, the product consumes just 12W of electricity; while shut down but still connected to the mains, it sips 0.5W. Best of all, the device is the quietest Nas drive I have tested to date. It runs in near silence.

Verdict

The MyXerver Pro X3800 would make a decent Nas for those new to network storage, or with modest storage requirements. However, if you do not need the Wi-Fi feature (especially bearing in mind its 802.11b/g limitation), be aware that as little as an extra £20 could buy you a much faster Nas drive with two to four times the capacity. Moreover, if the Wi-Fi appeals, and speed is not a concern, the larger capacity options for this model, certainly appear better value. ®
