The Synology NAS series this year has proven to be very impressive with capable, fast, versatile systems available at every price point. We recently reviewed the high end DS1010+ and DX510 expansion unit and felt it was one of the best configurations available for the business audience.
Today we are going to look at one of their NAS units aimed at the more mainstream audience, the DS210+. This product is available for around £300 in the UK in a basic, no drive configuration. You can also buy the DS210+ with drives preinstalled, or you can easily fit your own to save some money.
The DS210+ is the replacement for the popular DS209+ with a £100 price reduction – it is such a competitive market that this seemed like a wise move. This is a dual drive NAS system which supports up to 4TB (2x2TB) – we will look at the Raid support and performance levels within this review.
