TerraMaster F2-220 Review: Network Attached Storage at Affordable Price

Closer Look at Terra Master F2-220 »

img_9796Affordable storage device is not hard to find nowadays. There are a bunch of manufacturers that offer numerous features and different redundancy options. Most of the affordable storage devices we find in the market today are oriented towards home or small business users. It has been my experience that the price range between simple and advanced NAS devices can vary greatly. With simple NAS devices you should expect to get a handful of features such as multiple file services and simple web services. Advance network storage devices come with a variety of features and a list of downloadable content that can be used in conjunction with traditional storage features. For small home office and personal use you might need something that has two bays similar to F2-220 device. F2-220 is a network attached storage device that is manufactured by Terra Master. Terra Master is owned by NOONTEC company which sells products in over 40 countries. TerraMaster has been developing high quality storage product for over 16 years and F2-220 is their current offering for home/small business.

TerraMaster F2-220 packaging doesn’t have much to it. The shipping box does not have any information about the unit inside and it makes it hard to figure out what is actually inside. The only markings on this box is Terra Master logo and that’s pretty much it. To make it easy to carry around there is a plastic handle sticking out on the top of the box.

Internal packaging is well done. Actual device is protected by plastic bag and secured with a foam insert. In front of the packaging there is an accessories box where you will find everything to get you started in no time.

The contents of the F2-220 are Power Supply brick, six foot Ethernet cable, couple of bags of screws and getting started guide.
