With support for up to 3TB of storage, 40-50MB/s read and write speeds, RAID and JBOD support, and a small footprint, the StorCenter px2-300d is a good backup solution for small businesses or home users with lots of data on their hands. SlashGear calls the px2-300d "an all-around excellent storage device," and likes its ability to work with social networking services and surveillance systems, and says that it "makes an excellent personal server, offering a pleasant mix of appealing design, quiet hardware, easy-to-use software, and high-end functionality." PCWorld agrees, saying the px2-300d "delivers very good performance, excellent backup and surveillance features, and a helpful LCD that reports on the unit's status."

Overall, the px2-300d is an all-around excellent storage device. It runs relatively quiet when not crunching away at data, looks nice intermingled in with other hardware, and, most importantly, offers many different features that cover a broad enough spectrum to make this NAS an ideal choice.

Other than the price loaded with drives, there is nothing to dislike about the PX2 at all, and it is making this tester rethink the repurposed desktop computer currently in use as a server.
