Synology DS414slim

techPowerUp!
4 August 2014
  • Summary: Synology made a great move with the DS414slim since they managed to pack the power of their DSM OS, two Ethernet ports, and USB 3.0 support into a very small, nicely designed unit. The NAS looks great, and its small footprint greatly increases its usability.
  • Pros: Very small footprint and low weight, Supports the Link Aggregation Protocol because of the two Ethernet Ports it is equipped with, USB 3.0 support with one of the ports in the front, Fast network transfer speeds in JBOD and RAID 0/1 configurations, Great external storage performance with EXT4 fil...
  • Cons: Weak CPU, RAM is not upgradeable, It would replace media players perfectly if Synology had only bundled an HDMI port with the unit, The 2.5" HDDs pose a significant capacity restriction, Video Station isn't compatible with many popular file formats (e.g. MP4, M2TS, etc.), You cannot format an ext...

Legion Hardware

Synology DiskStation DS414j review

TechRadar UK
3 July 2014
  • Summary: Has this wallet-friendly NAS made too many compromises?
  • Pros: Dual-core processor, USB 3.0 support, 20TB capacity across 4 disks, Latest Synology DSM 5.0 software, The fast dual-core processor helps keep the DS414j moving data at a decent rate across the Gigabit network interface, and taking backups becomes a lot quicker thanks to the USB 3.0 port at the ba...
  • Cons: Cumbersome disk loading technology, No hot-swapping, Single Gigabit port, No front panel USB, Single USB 3.0 port, The cumbersome disk-loading mechanism is one of the biggest disappointments on the DS414j along with the lack of support for hot swapping. That said, it's rare for small businesses t...

  • Summary: Le DS414j est le dernier NAS 4 baies de Synology. Ce modèle se veut attractif grâce à un tarif très compétitif. Après avoir testé et recommandé le DS414 il y a tout juste 3 mois, cette nouvelle version « j » fait quelques concessions afin de rester à un tarif autour des 300€.

  • Summary: Synology nous a produit, comme à l’accoutumé, un très bon produit et la mise à jour vers le DSM5 ne gâche rien. De plus on le trouve a 400€ environ sur Internet, ce qui est un bon prix, car il se retrouve moins cher que le 412+.
  • Pros: Silence, Performances/font>, Applications
  • Cons: ...
