Synology DiskStation DS-119j 1-bay NAS Review


The DiskStation DS119j comes in a compact box with a small but clear image of the unit on the front. Under the image there are a couple of lines of text describing some of the features of the unit; Dual-core CPU, quiet and energy efficient, anywhere access and that it uses Synology's DSM software.

The rear of the box has a label that has two sections. The section on the left-hand side has front and rear images of the DS-119j with pointers picking out its hardware features. The right hand side of the label has a small spec list of the drive along with a list of what's bundled in with it.


One side of the box has a group of icons representing some of the DSM OS features; File Sharing, Anywhere Access, Cloud Synchronization and Multimedia. Under these is a small panel listing what OS the NAS is compatible with; Windows. Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. The other side panel has a list of possible uses for the DS119j; Mobile Support, Surveillance, Backup and Data Security.


The box bundle for the drive doesn't have much in it, but it's everything you need to get the DS-119j up and running. There's a EDAC EA1024PR 36W power adapter, a decent quality LAN cable, hard drive mounting screws, enclosure screws (out of the box the enclosure doesn't have these fixed in place) and a Quick Installation Guide.
