TerraMaster’s TRAID technology comes to two affordable NAS devices

TerraMaster

After a long wait, TerraMaster is finally offering affordable versions of its next generation NAS devices. The new F2-223 and F4-223 use a decent Intel Celeron N4505 CPU and notably support TerraMaster’s TRAID format.

While not as powerful as their 423 series devices, these new TerraMaster NAS products should offer fast and efficient file backup. And its Intel Celeron N4505 processor is powerful enough for Plex streaming, though it can struggle with multiple instances of hardware transcoding.

Specification-wise, the F2-223 and F4-223 are virtually identical. They both run TOS 5 and use the same processor. Additionally, they feature a pair of 2.5G Ethernet ports (up to 5Gbps with link aggregation). The only difference is the drive selection: the F2-223 has two drive bays, while the F4-223 has four drive bays.

You can also upgrade these NAS devices with up to 32GB of dual-channel RAM (they come with 4GB by default) or connect an NVMe SSD to improve storage efficiency and improve caching.

TerraMaster also included TRAID support on these new NAS devices. The TRAID format is similar to Synology’s hybrid RAID system, which uses flexible disk array management to offer enhanced disk space utilization and redundancy protection.

Price is obviously the big draw here. The TerraMaster F2-223 is only $300, while the four-bay F4-223 retails for $440. My only concern is that the 423-series devices, which use a faster processor, are only about $40. more than these new products.
