Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
I was looking to buy an F5-221 in the spring, but decided I liked DSM too much to risk an unknown OS and ecosystem.

I remember announcements a couple of months back for the F5-221 and thought to myself "that's odd, the F5-221 isn't a new product, why are they announcing it?"

And here we are today, with the news that Terramaster is announcing the F5-221.


This is not a new product. It's using a 5-year-old Celeron dual-core from 2016 FFS. It's appealing value with 5 bays for under $400, but STOP ANNOUNCING OLD PRODUCTS!
