Digital Tested Review: “Shuttle’s NAS is Low-Power Consumption and Whisper-Quiet”
Shuttle’s Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, KD22, held its own against other NAS contenders during product testing done last month by Digital Tested, a leading German Tech publication. Shuttle’s KD22 performed exceptionally well with low power consumption and operating noise levels in the comparative analysis.
A series of tests were done on the KD22 and according to Digital Tested, at no point was the smart fan activated. It’s equipped with a smart low-noise fan in case the system needs cooling, but thanks to the aluminum chassis, the KD22 barely gets warm and runs on a mere 8 watts in standby mode. Digital Tested stated, "The Omninas KD22 looks stylish and is whisper-quiet (depends on the hard disks in use). Its menu structure is clear and features streaming functionality." Digital Tested states the KD22 features easy installation, even for first-time users.
The KD22 is a 2-bay NAS with read/write speeds of up to 110MB per second and storage space for up to 8TB of data. The compact device is fit with a 2.5mm aluminum chassis for thermal efficiency and keeps things cool for continuous operation. Its sleek piano-black design and whisper-quiet operation makes the KD22 an optimal choice for any discerning Home or Small Office user. Digital Tested affirms the high quality of Shuttle’s KD22 as a stylish NAS with exceptionally low noise and power consumption as compared with other major NAS players.
