Synology DiskStation DS211+ Review

Rating: 9.0.

Synology have been riding high in 2010, releasing some of the finest NAS systems ever to hit the consumer market. We use several of these devices in the KitGuru offices for our network file sharing and have found them to be both extremely reliable and fast.

Last month we looked at the Synology DS211, a fantastic performing mainstream unit which easily earned our highest award, and today we are looking at the DS211+ which has just been released today.

What is the difference between the DS211 and the DS211+ ? Many people seem to be confused with the Synology naming conventions, but it is surprisingly easy to break down.

“+” series = performance range.
standard series (no digit) = mixture of performance and storage.
“j” series = entry level consumer, concerned about capacity but not performance.

DS = Diskstation
First Digit = number of bays
Second numbers = year for the release

Therefore we know that the DS211+ is a member of the performance series, it has two drive bays and was created for the year 2011.

Product Highlights:

  • High performance, over 100 MB/s read speed
  • Windows® ACL Support
  • Complete Backup Solutions
  • 256-bit AES Hardware Encryption Engine
  • Hot Swappable Hard Drives
  • Cool and Quiet Design
