Every time we review a Synology Disk Station we are shocked at the total package value of these devices. Providing a review that will express the multitude of features DSM is packed with is next to impossible. The DiskStation manager 3.1 offers an...

The Synology DS411+ is one of the most powerful Atom based NAS devices we have come across, the Intel Atom D510 seems perfectly suited for this kind of use. Given the specifications, the DS411+ performed as anticipated and proved to be a great quality...

The DiskStation DS411+ is a big performance step up from the last Synology NAS we reviewed earlier this year. This time around processor and RAM limitations were not a problem, as the DS411+ offers a 1.67GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of memory. The...

While there may be speedier Nas boxes out there, Synology’s DiskStation product line is miles ahead of the curve thanks to the features of DiskStation Manager 3.0. It's just a pity the physical styling doesn't follow suit. Still, if...

In terms of performance, Synology's DS411+ is tough to beat. Both read and write speeds are blazing fast and it can easily handle multiple, simultaneous file transfers. All in all, the unit is consistent with what I've come to expect from...

Managing the DiskStation DS411+ is admittedly a pleasure, but whilst excelling in one aspect, the unit stutters in another. Performance during our benchmarks proved to be decidedly average, and if speed is your primary concern, rival manufacturers...

Synology promised us speed, speed and more speed with their new DiskStation DS411+ NAS, and so we had to take them up on the challenge. A four-drive RAID array targeted at demanding home users or SMBs, the DS411+ may look sober on the outside but with...

Konfiguration und Performance der Synology Diskstation 411+ können überzeugen. Der Datendurchsatz liegt im Vorderfeld der von getesteten Geräte. Die Festplatten werden mit knapp 60 MByte pro Sekunde beschrieben und mit bis...
