DesignTechnica reviews Snap Appliance Snap Server 1100 ().
"There is a fantastic simplicity to the Snap Server 1100. Small businesses and home users alike will appreciate the Snap Server's easy installation, minimialistic exterior design and excellent performance.
Setting up the Snap Server could hardly be any easier and the system can quickly be configured with tight corporate security or a more relaxed level of security for a home-network.
Price may be the only limiting factor for some home users since at over $530 for an 80GB drive, there are certainly much cheaper solutions. However, the added security, backup features and ability to effortlessly transfer files between several operating systems will appeal to many users interested in protecting their data across a network. While the unit is more costly than other storage solutions the versatility will make up for it in many situations.
A recent announcement by Broadcom predicts heavy interest NAS from small businesses and home users with their NAS-on-chip which should significantly drive prices for these products down. Snap Appliance is on the cusp of this development and one of the few companies targeting the smaller users, but this will soon change."
