The EMC NS600 has some very nice features and good performance. It is based on the CLARiiON and the Celerra data movers so it has a well-proven base and should be very stable.The other products are good products as well and vary in feature/functions offered and price. I always recommend that you do your homework before making a decision and don't accept someone's recommendation (especially a vendor) unless they understand your requirements. Make a list of your requirements and a list of features/functions that you need in a NAS box. Fill it in with information on the candidate solutions and use that to lead to an informed decision.
