Synology today released an updated version of its DiskStation Manager firmware in the form of version 2.3. Simply dubbed the Synology DSM 2.3, the firmware update brings many new features to the application.

The new version features simple volume management using the new Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR), which delivers simplified RAID setup by optimizing disk capacities. This is particularly useful when the hard drives used are of different sizes. Synology has also built EZ-Internet Wizard into the firmware to allow users to easily connect to the DiskStation from the Internet. The wizard handles everything from firewall settings, to PPPoE setup and DDNS registration as well as router port forwarding.

Security has also been beefed up with AES 256-bit shared folder encryption. Other new features introduced in the Synology DSM 2.3 include a new iPhone app in the form of the Synology DS cam, which allows users who have Surveillance Station installed to check out their IP cameras live, take snapshots, and view recorded events via their iPhone or iPod touch. DS cam is already available as a free download via the Apple App Store.

The DiskStation manufacturer has also improved upon the versions of File Station 3, Surveillance Station 4, Photo Station 4, and Audio Station 2 with the new firmware. The upgrade is a complete one that boosts the overall capabilities of Synology’s DiskStation devices. While new DiskStations from the manufacturer will ship with the updated firmware, existing users can upgrade their devices by downloading the firmware for free from Synology Support.

Still can't see how anybody could justify buying this when x58 mobo's are about the same price and the 920's are cheaper than 860's.

Because you're getting LOADS more motherboard for the same price, the 1156s clock much easier than the X58 stuff, dual channel is naturally a lot cheaper and, if hyper-threading isn't important to you, a i5 750 is way cheaper than a 920. Yes the X58 is amazing. But the P55 is much better value.

This Maximus III is a mental amount of motherboard. The serious contender for it in X58 terms is the Quad Classified. And if you're trying to say they're the same money....

I have to disagree 1366 overclocks much better than 1156. You can put dual channel on x58 if that is a concern. Yes i5 750 is good value but p55 i7's are expensive in the UK.
You bring value into the discussion but anyone buying p55 has a lower budget and will therefore buy the 750. People on higher budgets will more than likely get the x58 based system that will support the 6 core 32nm cpus that will be shortly released.

People that have funds for a tri/quad sli/xfire system will have enough for the classified.
