Synology NAS DS211 & DS411j Review
Published: 16th November 2010 | Source: Synology | Price: £220 - £270 |
The DS211 arrived in a somewhat "no frills" box; a conventional brown base with a black Synology theme. Regardless, the packaging was secure and the decoration was clear and concise - exactly how we like it.
Inside are two smaller boxes. One contains all the power and ethernet cables necessary to get started as well as the relevent manuals. Unsurprisingly the other box contains the NAS box itself.
Aesthetically there is no real way to fault the DS211. Sporting a predominantly white theme, its size allows it to hide itself in most conditions with relative ease.
Once stripped of its clothing, there isn't much to show really. Your two Hard Disk Drives simply slide (and screw) into place. A small fan at the rear of the case acts as an exhaust - time will tell if it is quiet or not...
