Synology Disk Station DS3612XS



The Synology Disk Station DS3612XS measures 310mm (H) x 300mm (W) x 340mm (D) (12.20" x 11.81" x 13.38") and weighs 10.53kg (23.21lbs) empty. The DS3612xs accepts cards with a low-profile bracket and doesn't need its own custom bracket, which helps improve compatibility. Stripping the DS3612xs down reveals two large blue PCBs: a motherboard and a hot-swappable SATA module with a dozen ports.
