Synology DS415play Review

Rating: 8.0.

The latest release from Synology’s enormous range of NAS is the DS415play. This 4-bay NAS looks pretty much identical to the DS414 (review) however it includes the features we saw in the DS214play (review). In essence this means the dual core ARM processor in the DS414 has been replaced with a dual core Intel Atom to ensure the DS415play has enough grunt to stream HD media across a network.
