Synology DS710+ 2 bay NAS Server

Rating: 8.5.

With all the reviews on KitGuru in the last month there is a good possibility you have already bought a new system, perhaps even one for media entertainment.

If so, the review today will be of particular interest as we will be looking at a 2 bay NAS system from Synology. NAS systems are a huge benefit for a home enthusiast user as they offer vast storage which can be accessed from any computer on your network.

The DS710+ offers a “high-performance, scalable, and full-featured network attached storage solution that meets the needs of small and medium-sized businesses that require an efficient way to centralize data protection, simplify data management, and rapidly scale storage capacity with minimal time spent on setup and management. The Synology DS710+ is backed with Synology’s 3-year limited warranty.”

According to Synology the system is capable of delivering a 113+MB/s read speed, backed up by a 102+ MB/s write speed. This is being marketed as a performance unit and we will certainly put it to the test later.

  • eric k

  • joe

    I bought their 2 series unit months ago, its great. I wanted this one but it was too much money for me at the time.

  • frank

    with 2 2TB drives would last a long time 🙂

  • daz

    Weird the front is sealed, isnt helping the CPU cool at all that.

  • Francois LeBon

  • Death Dealer

    The ATOM really does kick ass in this kind of environment.

  • Bret

    Any USA prices ? cant seem to find it on newegg.

  • Tech Head

    Good performance, those QNAP units cost a fortune too.

  • Eric K

    Yeah, its always what gives me problems with those NAS systems, the massive money they cost. I think the high end QNAP is ATOM powered too. seems even more of a bargain

  • terry

    Still seems like quite a bit of cash to me, especially when you have to add drives to the cost. ends up well over 500 with two decent sized drives.

    thats a lovely little unit, I like the sound proofed front actually, atom at 70c is fine 🙂

  • Tech Head

    Yeah atom can hit 80 long term easy enough, would be nicer to see 60 though long term I think. the lower the better. hey maybe Zardon can fit a noctua NH D14 to it ? 🙂
