Last month, Synology officially released its Disk Station Manager 2.0 firmware for its Disk, Cube and Rack Station NAS product lines. DSM 2.0 features a new AJAX-based user interface and a host of other features. DSM 2.0 also is supposed to provide improved throughput, so we agreed to retest a CS407 Cube Station to verify Synology's claims.
Synology's trio of single-drive BYOD NASes lets you match performance and features to your budget. But any of them are a winning choice.
Synology's updated RAID 5 NAS includes some nice improvements. But you may have to experiment with settings to get optimum RAID 5 performance.
Some NASes make you choose between fun and work by the features they include. Synology's DS207 Disk Station lets everyone be happy.
