TerraMaster has expanded their 10GbE NAS range with its largest offering yet, the 8-bay F8-422.
While this has twice the number of drives bays as the TerraMaster F4-422 I previously reviewed, the overall hardware specification is almost identical, the one exception being this has 8GB of RAM installed compared to 4GB.
Currently the TerraMaster F8-422 is listed on Amazon for £1,099.99, however on the 26th of December you will be able to pick it up with 15% off for £934.99
Other drives in the range also get discounts, with the F5-422 dropping down to £442.99 and the F2-422 being £271.99.
The F5-422 seems to be the sweet spot for what you get for your money.
