Synology DiskStation DS2411+ Review: Up to 36TB Storage

Synology DiskStation DS2411+ Review: Up to 36TB Storage

The Synology DiskStation DS2411+ is a business-class NAS device suitable for SMB users, however its $1,700 asking price makes it a little more feasible when compared to other enterprise and rackmount NAS devices with similar capacities but much steeper price tags.

This may well beyond the grasp of the average user, but we're confident those who require such radical storage solutions will find a lot to appreciate in the DS2411+.

QNAP TS-412 Turbo NAS Review

QNAP TS-412 Turbo NAS Review

As one of QNAP's most affordable 4-bay NAS, we were unsurprisingly drawn to the TS-412. The device is fetching only $40 more than the older TS-410, but considering its Marvell processor runs 50% faster, we feel the TS-412 is a better value.

The QNAP TS-412 could displace Synology's $360 DS411J, but we're also curious about how it compares to NAS devices in the $500-$600 bracket. Assuming QNAP's latest product doesn't disappoint -- and they rarely do -- the TS-412 has a fair chance at becoming the "go-to" 4-bay NAS.
