Transcend StoreJet Cloud 110
An easy-tosetup NAS with plenty of storage space.
With the ever-increasing demand for storage solutions, those in the storage industry are constantly coming up with new products to meet this seemingly insatiable market. Transcend – one of the biggest players in the storage industry – recently introduced its latest product: the StoreJet Cloud 110.
As you would have guessed by now, the StoreJet Cloud 110 is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) system that provides users with access to their data; so long an internet connection is available. The StoreJet Cloud 110 has a single 4TB HDD inside, which should prove adequate for most home users, and even small businesses.
This NAS is incredibly easy to set up, as all we needed to do was connect it to our work LAN, and it immediately appeared on find. storejetcloud.com. As mentioned, you will be able to access the contents stored within the NAS from anywhere across the globe, as long as the internetconnected NAS is turned on, and you have a StoreJet Cloud account.
There are essentially two ways you can access the documents and files stored on the NAS. The first is by using the StoreJet Cloud app, which is available for both Android and iOS devices; or via the Google Chrome app, which is available for both Windows and Mac PCs. The steps to enable remote access can be slightly tedious, but a step-bystep guide can be found on the official site. There's also a single USB 3.0 slot on the NAS for easy file transfer between USB drives and the NAS itself.
Unlike the competition, the interface of the StoreJet Cloud 110 is relatively simple. You get immediate access to all your content from the home screen, as well as the settings you'd need to further configure the NAS.
As the OS of the StoreJet Cloud 110 lacks an activity monitoring tool, we tested the NAS by streaming content via Wi-Fi. We're happy to report that the NAS streams both audio and video content without any hiccups.
When it comes to ease of use, the StoreJet Cloud 110 is almost second to none, but enabling remote access is a slightly tedious affair, so some points are deducted for this. There's also no support for drag and drop, so it's a little bit difficult to transfer files within the NAS' OS. Overall, the StoreJet Cloud 110 provides plenty of personal cloud storage, but the competition still has the upper hand in terms of overall usability.
The OS is relatively simple compared to the competition.
