Synology Disk Station DS213Air
Creates its own WiFi hotspot, Great software features
Very good NAS performance, Built-in wireless, USB 3,0 ports, Excellent management software and setup, Very feature-heavy.
The Synology DiskStation DS213Air offers fast data performance, tons of features, and built-in support for Wi-Fi.
Mediocre performance, No easyaccess drive bays
Below average wireless performance, Only supports 2,4 GHz, Case hard to open, Wi-Fi button small and clumsy to work with.
The DS213Air isn't as fast as other dual-bay NAS servers, and its Wi-Fi feature and drive-bay design need some improvement.
