Recently we looked at Synology’s DiskStation DS1517+ (review HERE), a 5-bay NAS aimed at the business sector. Now we have its bigger sibling in for analysis, the 8-bay DiskStation DS1817+. The 8-bay DiskStation DS1817+ sits just under the flagship desktop tower system, the 12-bay DS2115+ and offers a total storage capacity (with 10TB drives) of 80TB. Memory wise the DS1817+ comes in two options; 2GB or 8GB of DDR3 and it was the latter version that Synology supplied for this review.
Since the first Samsung Portable SSD, the T1 hit the shelves in 2015 every subsequent launch of the T series has seen the latest evolution of Samsung’s TLC V-NAND being used inside them, 48-layer in the T3 and now with the 3rd generation drive, the Portable SSD T5, Samsung’s latest 64-layer TLC V-NAND. The new T5 is available in four capacities; 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and the flagship 2TB which is the version Samsung supplied for this review.
It has been a while since Crucial had a new SSD in the market place but that’s all changed with the launch of the BX300 series, the 3rd generation BX drive. The BX300 uses 3D MLC NAND and being a BX drive, is aimed at the value/entry level end of the market. Geared towards the value end of the market, the new BX300 lineup consists of just three capacities, the entry 120GB model, 240GB and the flagship 480GB model that we have for review.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
