The Bottom Line Given its relatively low price, the Seagate Business Storage 4-Bay NAS is worth the investment. Synology DiskStation DS412+ makes an excellent NAS server for advanced home and small-office networks. It's not the fastest NAS, nor does it include many advanced features, but the WD My Cloud EX4 still combines great ease of use into an affordable personal cloud system that's excellent for a connected home. The Synology DiskStation DS1513+ is easily one of the best multiple-bay NAS servers to date, performing superbly both as an advanced storage server and as the central host for a long list of home entertainment and business uses. For a low-cost entry-level network storage device, the WD My Cloud is very impressive both in performance and features, making it one of the best deals for home users.
