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.
