The win­ner

| My Cloud Mir­ror

Mac Format - - RATED -

All six drives have their strengths and weak­nesses, but two in par­tic­u­lar stand out, mainly be­cause of their strong per­for­mance (and whis­per-quiet op­er­a­tion). They’re the two new­est mod­els on test too, which bodes well for fu­ture net­work drive de­vel­op­ment. At first glance, it’s the lesser known Zyxel NAS520 that should win hands down thanks to its strong com­bi­na­tion of per­for­mance, con­nec­tiv­ity and pow­er­ful fea­tures.

Un­for­tu­nately, the Zyxel drive isn’t the eas­i­est model to con­fig­ure. By con­trast, it’s this user-friend­li­ness, paired with ex­cel­lent per­for­mance (par­tic­u­larly with large files), good build qual­ity and rea­son­able fea­ture set, that sees us give the nod to WD’s My Cloud Mir­ror in­stead.
