Synology Diskstation Ds216j Review

NAS (network-attached storage) boxes aren’t the most glamorous of accessories, and Synology’s are no exception, but they’re known for offering a good range of features at a sensible price. This is the successor to the DS215j, which we recommended, and it keeps the characteristic white plastic box with its vertical strip of indicator lights at the right.

DiskStation DS916+ Review – A next-generation NAS design that offers huge storage potential With Synology’s penchant for reusing its enclosures, it’s easy to assume that what’s inside remains unchanged.

Synology DS116 Review – Excellent DS115 with something even better

Synology Ds116 Review

Synology follows up the excellent DS115 with something even better Looking through the specs of the DS116 was a curiously moment for this reviewer.
