  • Summary: The Synology DS1513+ does an excellent job of filling the gap between the expensive DS2413+ and the much smaller 2-bay DS713+. Hardware wise the DS1513+ is virtually identical to both models, though like the DS2413+ it comes loaded with 2GB of RAM whereas the cheaper DS713+ has just 1GB of RAM.

  • Excerpt: Synology’s DS1513+ is a 5-bay NAS drive, and in overall specification it is closer to the company’s 8-bay DS1813+. These models are based on a broad matt black chassis and sport a plethora of USB, ethernet and eSATA connectors.
