Tran­scend StoreJet Cloud 110

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST - by Bryan Chan

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.
