Let us check out the Filegear One Plus specifications, power consumption, and our final words.


  1. @Shaun That’s a pretty uncanny resemblance. Bets on whether its a custom skin on A) an actual HP unit or B) the same thing from HP’s chinese ODM? Plus the specific custom software which is the real reason we’re all here.

    Besides… HP touts 6th gen processors and I’m not sure what the processors used here qualify as. Maybe they’re using an older gen?

  2. This is indeed a AcePC AK1. Is Servethehome now a pay-to-play review site? I find it hard to imagine how this thing got a 9.3. Considering the USB3 connection that connects the “internal” drive will bottleneck the performance, I think we can surmise how serious this company is with data storage. The DS119J is $110. The AK1 is $160. The NUC Kit NUC7PJYH is $170. No informed consumer would spend $250 on this.

    “we enjoyed this product and will happily say goodbye to OneDrive, Dropbox, and Google Drive.”

    Who writes this stuff? I am convinced this was a sponsored posting.

  3. Personally, I am using OwnCloud running on a VM. Single core with SMT, 2GB of RAM, 1TB of total storage (For OS, Owncloud and any other files I add). It’s running off of a LAMP stack, Ubuntu 18.04. I highly suggest anyone looking for a fun project to do owncloud if you have a separate machine able to do this.

    I love the features of OwnCloud, and the desktop sync app is pretty cool too, as you can sync up multiple accounts and folders on your PC to OwnCloud. I’d personally invest in an OwnCloud machine before this box.

  4. Nick – we do not do sponsored posts. The Synology comparison is valid, however, I take issue with comparing pricing of hardware to a product with a hardware and software bundle. There is a fairly large market segment that wants a solution that works out of the box. Remember, Dell Technologies is larger than Supermicro by several times because solutions sell better than roll-your-own.

  5. Patrick – My comment was a little bombastic and I don’t think you guys actually write sponsored reviews, but this one read like it. Probably my criticism is rooted in the fact that this is one of the few sites that give solid, technical reviews without a bunch of clickbait and fluff posts.

    I realize that built into this pricing is the software, but the $100 synology comes with the same OS as the $1000 disktation, and from what I can tell has the same features. Would have been nice to see how the software compared to the offerings considering it loses in the hardware category.

    Also one thing that is glossed over is security. From what I can tell, Filegear is closed source, doesn’t have a bug bounty program, and makes no mention of security on their site. That alone I think makes it difficult to recommend this product. Just my 2 cents. Keep up the good work 🙂
