Synology NAS DS211 & DS411j Review
Published: 16th November 2010 | Source: Synology | Price: £220 - £270 |
On the other hand, the DS411j touts a more retail themed package design. Despite the white colour scheme the details remain clear and concise, merely highlighting key features by means of self descriptive logos.
The accessory set is more or less identical to the DS211, with the exception of the driver disc (for obvious reasons).
Naturally as a 4 drive NAS, it is almost twice as tall as the 211. On the other hand it is constructed from solid material; aside the plastic front bezel the outer shell is entirely metal.
Synology saw fit to implement two fans in the 411j. Unfortunately under certain conditions a NAS box is likely to need active cooling. Once again, time will tell if these devices are able to keep noise relatively low...
