Synology DS207+ NAS Server
So how well did the Synology Disk Station DS207+ perform in today's review?
There is no doubt that the Synology DS207+ is an excellent product. The build quality is very good and it certainly looks very classy, whilst ensuring a small desktop footprint. The Synology DS207+ also provides good cooling for the hard drives contained within, and the cooling fan manages to remain reasonably quiet most of the time. However, at times the fan does become noticeable, and emits some low frequency noise from time-to-time.
The performance of the Synology DS207+ is good, and additional performance could be achieved by using faster drives than the smaller 8mb cache Western Digital's that I used in today's testing. Additionally, the 2TB maximum storage that the Synology DS207+ allows should be more than enough to keep even the heaviest of storage users happy.
The recommended retail pricing for the Synology DS207+ is £203.26, but the best price I could find for the unit was £228.53 Inc VAT
from Scan Computers UK. Admittedly, the Synology DS207+ isn't cheap, and consequently it may keep many potential buyers away. However, if you're in the market for a solid SOHO NAS setup, then the Synology DS207+ NAS should be on your short list.
+ Excellent feature set
+ Build quality
+ Effective cooling
+ Storage capacity and array options for such a small unit
* Fan can be noisy
* The steep price will deter many
- Absolutely nothing
It's times like these that I wish we had an OC3D 'Highly Recommended' award as the recommended award doesn't really seem to do the unit justice.
Overclock3D would like to thank Synology
for providing the Synology DS207+ NAS for review.
