Where's the best place to buy a TerraMaster F2-221 NAS?
Why should you buy the TerraMaster F2-221?
TerraMaster isn't quite as well known as Synology or QNAP, but the company produces some good network attached storage (NAS) devices. The F2-221 is a mid-tier model designed for home and small office use, sporting two drive bays and various features to hook up numerous devices.
This NAS isn't a great option for 4K playback and streaming, but if you need to store files, media, and run Plex for your mobile device, the F2-221 is perfect. Priced at around $250, not only can you play around with an affordable NAS to get familiar with available functionality, but it's also well-priced for what you get in the box.
Like many NAS models from various manufacturers, the F2-221 doesn't come with hard drives pre-installed, but we have you covered with the best drives you should use in a NAS.
Amazon is the best place to go
What makes Amazon such a great place to shop at is the optional Prime subscription (opens in new tab), which unlocks a whole host of additional benefits for $13 a month, including free next-day delivery depending on your location. You could order the TerraMaster F2-221 up to a certain point in the day and have it delivered the following day.
Whether you opt for Amazon Prime or not, you'll still be able to enjoy Amazon's great promotions and value. There are also user reviews, solid post-purchase support, and warranty. The TerraMaster may not be available in your region, but Amazon may be able to deliver the NAS to your front door using its network of couriers.
TerraMaster takes on Synology's best-seller
The relatively small brand within the NAS sphere is looking to capture more of the market from its rivals, and the F2-221 does more things right than wrong. It is an excellent, value-driven NAS that allows you to set up your own home media server.
