The Synology DS212j is a NAS server which addresses budget oriented users or small offices, that don't need four-bays or even larger NAS boxes, and can live without RAID 5, 6 or 10 arrays. It may not have hot-swap disks, USB 3.0 support or an eSATA...

Given that Audio Station can now play music through USB speakers attached to the DiskStation, the lack of a front USB port means that you've only got two left. These could quite easily be taken up for a wi-fi dongle or, seeing as there's no SD...

We’ve long been fans of Synology’s networked media devices, yet they’ve always missed out on that fifth star. There were always a couple of tricky gaps in the otherwise easy set-up process. But not now.What makes the Synology range so...

The moment you see the j at the end of any Synology NAS you know that you are dealing with the most entry-level unit of that particular line so I can’t say I expected much from the DiskStation DS212j. However after many hours of testing I was...

It was only yesterday we were looking at the Synology DS212 and today we look to its sibling the DS212j. Whilst it may be designed for home and small office use the DS212j delivers great performance and a plethora of useful features. Though it’s...

Starting with the build quality and design of the DiskStation DS212j we have a unit which exceeded our expectations of a lower cost model in the Synology range. The main casing feels solid and fits together well. Inside the drives slide into place...

DS212j koster litt mer enn den nevnte OmniNAS KD20 , og det er den så avgjort verd i våre øyne. Her får du bedre og jevnere ytelse, langt mer funksjonalitet og harddisker som holder seg nærmere normaltemperaturen. Vi kan...

Detta är Synologys 2-diskarsmodell i budgetserien, vilket märks på det sparsamma minnet och plastiga kabinettet. Det är dock snyggt och känns stabilt med en rimlig ljudnivå tack vare den stora fläkten. Installation av...

Til tross for at dette er en budsjettmodell er ytelsen utmerket sammenlignet med konkurrentene. Funksjonene er derimot like mange som i toppmodellene med støtte for alle tenkbare standarder og det er godt med finesser. Det er lett å komme til...

Bei Synologie stimmt nicht nur das Gehäusedesign, auch die Bedienoberfläche weiß zu überzeugen. Die Festplattenkapazität sollte man nur einmal festlegen und zwar direkt am Anfang, das spart die Aufrüstung.Thomas...

Det er svært ikke at blive imponeret over Synology DiskStation DS212j, for selvom det kan virke lidt “nørdet” at du selv skal installere harddiske og sætte softwaren op, så er det alligevel så nemt at alle og enhver...
