Synology DiskStation DS920+ 4-bay NAS Review

Rating: 8.5.

Sitting under Synology’s Personal and Home User banner, the DiskStation DS920+ is the latest addition to the companies 4-bay NAS lineup in the Plus series. The DiskStation DS920+ comes with support for a pair of M.2 NVMe SSD slots for performing cache operations.

Powered by an Intel Celeron J4125 quad-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz (burst up to 2.7GHz) the DiskStation DS920+ comes with 4GB of DDR4-2666MHz memory but should you need more the motherboard supports up to 8GB via a single SO-DIMM slot. It also supports an AES-NI hardware encryption engine.

Synology quote Sequential throughput performance for the DS920+ as up to 225.99MB/s for reads and 225.90MB/s for writes although those figures are from the NAS being tested with both LAN ports being used in Link Aggregation mode.

Synology back the DS920+ with a 3-year warranty.
