Synology’s dual-disk NAS line-up currently consists of four models which differ in hardware configuration. Besides the selection of I/O interfaces, they differ in performance, even though this only shows up in limitations on the number of backup...

As mentioned earlier, we haven’t touched a Synology device since 2009 at Techgage. That doesn’t mean I haven’t. I personally own a DS411 Slim. It was the only 4 bay NAS that I could afford at the time but I have put it to great use. I...

It is almost unfair to call Synology's DiskStation DS212 a NAS server. It is capable of so much more than simply providing network attached storage, that a different classification should be established. Sure, it does a great job as a NAS, but...

Om datorerna i ditt hem är ett gäng jyckar i ett hunddagis så är ”nasen” den som håller i kopplen. Ungefär. Okej, den där liknelsen stämmer kanske inte helt, men nätverks-­servern (nas betyder ­network attached storage) är en mycket smart centralpunkt...

På hardwaresiden ser DS212 ud til at være bestykket meget lig lillebroren DS212j, begge med en 1.6GHz processor og 256MB RAM, dog er det lykkedes Synology at hente mere hastighed ud af DS212eren. Selve NASen virker dog væsentligt bedre...
