Excerpt: For some time now Synology have been producing feature packed NAS devices. We have tested a number here on HardwareHeaven and found them to be industry leading in terms of features and performance with the DS413j receiving our recommended award back in September.
Conclusion: Performance wise it improves on its predecessors in terms of speed. What helps separate it from other NAS boxes is the DSM 4.1 interface. Synology has made an easy to use yet powerful GUI that most anyone who has used a Windows, Linux or OS X machine can easily pick up.
Pros: Excellent performer, Simple setup, Numerous packages available, Energy efficient, Works with all three major OSes, USB 3.0 ports, Built in SD card reader, File Encryption
Cons: Only one IP camera license included, Expensive
Conclusion: Strømforbruget er lavt, med kun 3.65 watt når harddiske er i dvale, og 19.82 watt når de spinder op. Støjniveauet er nærmest ikke eksisterende, og formår stadig at holde sine hardiske godt kølige, ved under 30 grader. Den er pæn at se på, og fylder ingenting.
