WD Sentinel DX4000 16TB Small Business Network File Storage Server

 
4.5
Verdict: For a high-performance NAS with disks already installed, this one is hard to beat. It has four bays, each with a 4TB hard drive installed into it, for 16TB of total storage. If that's more than you need, Western Digital has other WD Sentinel DX4000 models that offer 4TB, 8TB, or 12TB of data...

Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 16TB RAID5 4-Bay NAS Review

Verdict: Up to now we've been looking at network storage servers that come with no drives and are produced by a company other than a drive manufacturer.

Review: Western Digital Sentinel DX4000

Verdict: Western Digital makes Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices and recently sent a Sentinel DX4000 to El Reg for review. When I was asked to write about it I was initially unsure exactly how I would approach this: where's the novelty in a small consumer or SME device?

WD Sentinel DX4000

 
3.0
Verdict: Western Digital has been at the forefront of the storage industry for about as long as we can remember, but only in recent years has the outfit attempted to master the needs of SMB environments.

Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 NAS Review

 
3.5
Verdict: With its cute and functional design, fast (although dated) hardware platform, small dimensions, USB 3.0, two Ethernet ports, and tool-less hot-swap HDD bays, the Sentinel DX4000 is a step forward for Western Digital on the NAS market.

WD Sentinel DX4000 4TB server review

 
4.0
Pros: Huge amount of storage easy drive upgrade options handy LCD screen
Cons: OS limits your software installs mediocre performance
Verdict: As the most expensive server in our roundup we had high expectations for WD's SOHO server offering. It's obvious that the bulk of the cost has gone into the storage with a whopping 4TB of storage space - a country mile ahead of the competitors.

2.5
Verdict: A beefy and well-designed piece of hardware, the Sentinel DX4000 represents a good effort, but it doesn't deliver enough on performance or features.

Western Digital Sentinel DX4000

 
3.4
Verdict: Until now, Western Digital has always focused its NAS products on consumers, but the latest Sentinel DX4000 shifts that gaze up to SMBs. This is Western Digital's first Atom-powered appliance, and its first to use Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials (WSSE).

Verdict: A Windows-powered NAS appliance that scores well for backup and recovery – but it's short on storage features

REVIEW: WD Sentinel DX4000

Verdict: The lack of backup options is another issue added to which most of the competition bundle in other applications to enable their appliances to do a lot more than just share files.

Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 review

 
2.5
Verdict: The four-bay, Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 4TB is the only NAS box we've tested recently that uses Microsoft 's Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials for its operating system. All other comers are Linux-based, which turns out to be a big advantage.

Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 Review

Pros: Excellent build quality, Dual power supplies, dual LAN with fail-over, Microsoft Storage Server software is easy to work with
Cons: Excellent build quality, Dual power supplies, dual LAN with fail-over, Microsoft Storage Server software is easy to work with, Excessive RAID rebuild times
Verdict: Western Digital announced the WD Sentinel DX4000 last month in an effort to bring easy to configure NAS storage to SMBs with fewer than 25 employees. At the core of the Sentinel is Microsoft's Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials, an Intel 1.8 GHz Atom dual-core processor and two or four WD RE4-GP hard...

This thing was pretty good at first

 
1.0
Verdict: This thing was pretty good at first. Networking was really quite slow at around 80 MB/s, which is really crappy for what it cost, but it was workable. Now it's been about three years.

Great Entry Level Server

 
4.0
Verdict: This is a great product. It is easy to setup up and provides a simple to use interface. You can easily share files with users over your network. You are also able to setup remote access, which can be helpful if you want to access your business files from home.

Good unit

 
4.0
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Good Quality, Scalable
Cons: Compatibility
Verdict: This is a great, high-capacity NAS device. The interface is intuitive and friendly. The only thing I can knock it for, is that it doesn't work with SBS editions of Windows. Which would be great as it's a perfect solution for some small business applications.

Not ready for prime time

 
1.0
Verdict: We received our first unit as dead upon arrival -- would not power up at all. The replacement unit powered up, but would not detect all three drives inserted into it. It would not detect any drive inserted into the third slot. Returned it for a replacement.

Western Digital Sentinel Small Office Storage Server

 
5.0
Verdict: WD's Sentinels are an excellent choice as a NAS. First, this is WD's most important product and as such, when you call in for technical support, you go right to the top. I've had nothing but top rated service when working with them with the few problems I had (not the machine).

Great product

 
5.0
Pros: Easy to use, just need some time to set it up, let the unit calibrate ( approx 24 hours ) and go from there. WD has Very good tech support ( needed only once when i did a dumb dumb error ). system is quiet, fast, and a life saver for me!
Cons: Drives COST $300+! SO get it maxed out when you purchase one
Verdict: WD is a super company! Had a Spacesaver NAS from them ( 4+ years ) and it died last month. Was within warranty period by 2 months, called WD and they are sending me another NAS in exchange for the old broken one
