NAS - Complete (Inc HDD)

These NAS units are sold with hard disks bundled, saving you the trouble of buying them yourself. They come in a range of sizes and capacities, from single bay 2TB units suitable for modest personal users all the way to large, multi-bay units with 16TB, 24TB or even 32TB of storage on tap.

Some of these NAS boxes do not come pre-configured, giving you the chance to set them up as you see fit, including what RAID level you want to use, if any.

The NAS solutions with the purple 'SYSTEM' flag are built by our award-winning 3XS Systems engineers and come pre-configured with your choice of RAID, so all you have to do is connect them to your network.

1TB to 2TB 3.5" SATA SSHDs (Solid State Hybrid Drives)

Hybrid hard drives combine a traditional, high capacity mechanical HDD section with a smaller, flash-based SSD section that acts as a cache, giving your system a boost in responsiveness. They won't be as fast as a pure SSD, but they're a great compromise between speed and capacity.

500GB to 1TB 2.5" SATA Hard Drives

2.5" drives are significantly smaller than standard 3.5" ones, making them great candidates for upgrading the storage of your laptop or games console, especially as they're available in capacities of 500GB, 750GB and 1TB. Remember to check the height of the drives, as most portable or console systems only have bays which support 9.5mm drives or less. Also pay attention to the spin speed in rpm; while most drives here use the latest SATA III 6Gbps interface, faster spinning drives will read and write data faster.

120GB to 480GB 2.5" SATA3 Hard Drives

Available in 120, 128, 240, 250, 256, 275 and 480GB capacities these SATA III 6Gb/s SSDs may no longer be the fastest around thanks to emerging PCIe SSDs, but they're the most cost-effective and are still easily fast enough for most users. You'll need a spare SATA 6Gb/s port to get the most from them, and a 2.5" capable drive bay - an adaptor may need to be bought, but most cases have at least one. These drives are the highest capacity ones available, suitable for holding an operating system, as well as numerous programs and a healthy collection of media and games.

120GB to 260GB M.2 SATA SSDs

While the M.2 connector can be used for PCIe SSDs, the ones here are SATA 6Gb/s only, so the benefits over standard 2.5" SATA drives are to do with space-saving, not speed. Available in 120, 128, 240, 250, and 256GB sizes they're perfect for small form factor systems and laptops, but make sure your M.2 slot works with SATA devices, and that it supports the SSD's size, both in length (2280 means 80mm long) and thickness.

240GB to 1.2TB AIC (Add-in-Card) PCIe NVMe SSDs

The current pinnacle of SSD performance, PCIe SSDs are capable of reaching far greater speeds than the SATA SSDs limited to 6Gb/s. These particular SSDs are of the HHHL (Half Height Half Length)/ FHHL (Full Height Half Length) AIC (Add In Card) Form Factor, slotting into an available PCIe Slot on your motherboard in the same way as you would with a graphics card or other expansion card. Offering capacities of 240, 400, 480, 960, 800GB & even a massive 1.2 Terabytes, with the higher bandwidth provided by the PCIe Interface, these models feature much higher speeds than other Solid State Drives. Although these SSDs come as a single-slot PCIe expansion card, they are aimed at larger high-end desktop PCs, so ensure your motherboard has an appropriately sized slot spare with the Correct PCIe Bridge and Port Version to get optimum performance.

400GB to 1.2TB 2.5" U.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs

These particular U.2 SSDs of the 2.5" Form Factor can be fitted into your PC chassis in the same way as a regular SSD or HDD, but connect up to your system using a U.2 cable (formerly known as SFF-8639) to either an available U.2 connector on your motherboard or to a M.2 to U.2 adaptor board. Offering capacities of 400GB, 800GB & 1.2TB, the U.2 connection provides up to a four-lanes of Gen3 PCI Express allowing for more bandwidth and enabling these drives to feature much higher speeds than other Solid State Drives. Although these SSDs will affix to the vast majority of computer cases, the U.2 connector is usually only found on high-end, enthusiast-grade desktop PCs & motherboards, so ensure your motherboard has an on-board U.2 port, or supports U.2 via an adapter.
