Review of Synology DiskStation DS712+

Testfreaks blog
30 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Synology DiskStation DS712+ is an excellent combination of performance and power. The addition of an Intel Atom CPU over the Marvell Kirkwood provides more processing power to this member of the Synology x12 series. For new users setup wizards help keep things from being too intimidating. The OS like interface of DiskStation Manager also helps ease the transition to Synology’s products.
  • Pros: Fast, Simple setup, Easy to use, Energy efficient, Works with all three major OSes, Scalable
  • Cons: Lacks USB 3.0, Only one IP camera license included

Synology DiskStation DS712+ Review

14 December 2011
  • Summary: The DiskStation DS712+ is a decent performance step up from the last 3.5" Synology NAS we reviewed. The processors are similar in speed, offering a 1.8GHz dual-core processor; however, the RAM has been updated to DDR3 with 1GB of total memory. The DS712+ is also compatible with Synology’s DX510 Expansion Unit offering five additional bays, which plugs in via eSATA creating a maximum possible total of 21TB.
  • Pros: Super simple and quick to setup, Easy-to-use software, Scalability for those who want to start smaller and add more capacity later
  • Cons: Super simple and quick to setup, Easy-to-use software, Scalability for those who want to start smaller and add more capacity later, Doesn't support USB 3.0

Expert Review

  • Summary: Synology has done a great job with the DS712+ the hardware is solid and the OS is awesome and continues to improve with each release of DSM. I really like the quiet operating and automation built into the DS712+ it makes this an ideal candidate for a business that may not have a dedicated server room full of noisy servers. I have no complaints about the DS712+ other than the price tag could be lower, but on the same scale you are buying what amount to a full server.

Synology DiskStation DS712+

28 December 2011
  • Summary: A pricey (£400) NAS system, which has good management software that can be use to set up the DS712+ to function in a variety of ways, such as file server, mail server or even as back-end storage for CCTV cameras. Users will need to purchase their own hard drives, which will add to the price, but the link-aggregated network connection should improve performance significantly.
  • Pros: Good, feature-rich NAS management software; easy to set up; link aggregation gives 2Gbit/s network connection.
  • Cons: Pricey, especially since hard disks are extra.

Synology DS712+

18 June 2012
  • Conclusion: , ale dopiero on pokazał jak szybko taka konstrukcja może pracować. DS712+ nieznacznie wyprzedził NAS-y napędzanie wyżej taktowanymi procesorami Marvella. Urządzenie jest rodzajem rozwojowego "ciągnika". Ma miejsce na dwa dyski twarde, ale w razie ich zapełnienia można tanio powiększyć pojemność dokupując za podobną sumę przyczepkę DX510, z miejscem na pięć napędów. Łączy się je przez eSATA.
  • Pros: wydajny transfer danych
  • Cons: wysoka cena

Synology DS712+ NAS Server

7 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Hvis man inden for NAS verdenen og mærket Synology så er der efterhånden rigtig mange muligheder at vælge imellem. Faktisk synes vi efterhånden at producenten har alt for mange modeller til rådighed, hvor forskellen på hver model er minimal. Men DS712+ er i hvertfald den mindste model der 100 % henvender sig til det professionelle marked og dette betyder også at prisen bevæger sig op i den tungere klasse. DS712+ koster pt. over 3000kr.
