The F2-210 is an entry-level NAS for SOHO users that will not break the bank as it is very affordable. Right now, Terra Master F2-210 retails for about $ 150 USD (diskless). This is an excellent price point for an entry-level home NAS. The hardware of F2-210 and very solid but that’s not what gives this device its superpowers. Perhaps the most important feature of F2-210 and similar devices by Terra Master is its underlying operating system, TOS (TerraMaster Operating System). This OS system uses user-friendly interfaces to give you control over the hardware so you can build your storage repository, create a private cloud or simple host a website. You can simply install and uninstall applications right from the Application Repository free of charge. Terra Master offers a set of useful applications such as Plex and MariaDB.
The performance of the F2-210 is what should be expected from a RAID 0/1 NAS enclosure with Gigabit connection. Looking at my benchmarks I was able to use most of my Gigabit connection between the PC and the NAS. Do note that write speeds to the NAS were slower in RAID 1 configuration than in RAID 0.
Overall F2-210 is a good starting point for personal storage. If you planning to store images and video files for streaming this device might be a good fit. However, I would like to recommend a NAS that has four bays as you can potentially use a minimum of RAID 5 (or better) configuration and protect your data better than RAID 1 which only gives you a fault tolerance of one.
