Vox BlackBox Dual Bay Gigabit RAID Shared Network Storage 1TB

July 14, 2008

The Vox BlackBox offers 1TB of storage and can be found online from roughly $310 to $340. Aside from its low cost per gigabyte, there’s unfortunately little to recommend about this dual-drive Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. From the desktop application to the Web-based interface, the device is consistently confusing. All of its functions–and there are just a few of them–are poorly designed, making setting it up and changing its settings a series of trials and errors. It’s performance, however, is decent, and once we did get it up and running, it proved to be a reliable network device. If you have some experience with network devices and are looking for the largest capacity out of the box for the lowest price, the Vox BlackBox might be the NAS drive you’re looking for. If you’re willing to pay a little more for more features and intuitiveness, we recommend the D-Link DNS-323 or the HP MediaVault 2120.
