£229.45 Inc. VAT (At time of review)Synology are a strong force within the NAS market. Apart from just a few other names in the business they have an abundance of NAS products that cater for the home user right through to the corporate enterprise. Las...
Bottom line The DS211 represents Synology's attempt at bringing performance and storage to home and small business users on a budget. It will host 2 drives and provide you with great network storage at a smaller price-tag than you would expect. Synology's NAS OS...

Synology have launched two new products this week, the which we reviewed several days ago and the DS211 which we are looking at today. The DS411j is a quad drive NAS system supporting up to 8TB and the DS211 is a higher performance dual drive NAS of...
Bottom line Again, Synology have adopted a competitive pricing structure with this unit selling in the UK for around £230 inc vat. This is easily the fastest budget NAS system on the market right now, by a clear margin...

Het lijkt niet meer dan een klein kastje met twee harde schijven. Toch kun je heel wat doen met zo’n kastje, zoals blijkt uit deze vergelijking van 18 NAS-apparaten. Niet alleen wordt de functionaliteit van deze producten steeds beter, de snelheid gaat...
Bottom line Na het bekijken van dit groot aantal NAS-apparaten is het toch lastig een keuze te maken. De Thecus N2200+ is op zich een interessante keuze, vanwege de grote hoeveelheid mogelijkheden en de goede prestaties, maar valt toch af vanwege de instabiliteit...

Wichtige Dokumente, etwa Urlaubs- oder Hochzeitsfotos, die mühsam angehäufte MP3-Sammlung oder die selbst erstellten Videos vom letzten Familien-Großereignis – auf der heimischen Festplatte lauern zahlreiche Schätzchen, deren Verlust unbezahlbar ist. D...
Bottom line Die Synology DS211 ist eine sehr gute NAS für den ambitionierten Privatnutzer und Heimanwender. Die Disk Station Manager-Oberfläche ist einfach und intuitiv aufgebaut, bietet aber dennoch eine Vielzahl an Einstellungsmöglichkeiten. Dank der lobenswert...

Vi har tidligere set på Synologys DS211J, som var et rigtigt godt bud på en NAS til det digitaliserede hjem, og nu har vi fået fingrene i storebroren DS211.Disse to NAS’er minder på mange måder om hinanden, og de har da også helt de samme funktione...
Bottom line Synology DS211 er lig andre NAS fra Synology et meget gennemtænkt produkt. Vi har her en NAS der til fulde lever op til de mange krav der stilles af et moderne hjem til deling og tilgængelighed af digitalt materiale. Hvad der taler virkeligt godt for S...

Обычно в тестах у нас бывают или топовые устройства, или наоборот, бюджетные. Первые демонстрируют возможности производителя по выпуску наиболее функциональных и производительных моделей, тогда как вторые привлекательны для потребителя своим соотношением...
Bottom line Тестирование сетевого накопителя Synology DS211 среднего (по позиционированию производителя) сегмента показало, что по скоростным характеристикам чтения и записи данных по сети, оно не так уж и значительно отстает от самых быстрых моделей. Похоже, что в п...

With NAS (Network Attached Storage) drives becoming more and more popular everyday it's only natural for us to also focus on that segment of the market. Of course the really good NAS devices cost quite a lot more than what a casual user would e...

Bad Only Comes In White...
Bottom line Before we reach our conclusion I really have to mention that we did Benchmark the DiskStation DS211 by Synology but we really found little to no speed differences between regular mid-level models (with the QNAP TurboNAS TS-219P+ performing slig...
2011-10-04 09:03:48
NAS (Network Attached Storage) drives are becoming increasingly popular and they do cost a pretty penny, for those that can afford them they are worth every last bit! Today’s review is focused on the 2-bay DS211 which proved to be much more than just n...
Bottom line Although the Disk Station DS211 is far from the cheapest 2-bay NAS device you will come across, it’s certainly one of the best in terms of performance. For those that only require 4 – 6GB’s of storage and want something that will provide reasonably hig...
2011-10-04 09:03:50
When it comes to NASes, we usually test either top-end or, on the contrary, low-end products. The former are indicative of the manufacturer’s technological achievements whereas the latter offer the most appealing price/performance ratio to the customer...
Bottom line According to our tests, the DS211 model, positioned by Synology as a mainstream NAS, is not far inferior to its top-end counterparts in terms of data transfer speed. We guess Synology products can be viewed as falling into two categories only: the ent...
2011-10-04 09:03:55
Recently I’ve been able to spend some time with Synology’s relatively new DiskStation DS211 network-attached storage device. Like the DS210+, the DS210j and the DS209 before it, the DS211 is a two-disk NAS unit from a company that only makes storage de...
2011-10-04 09:03:57
The Synology DiskStation DS211 isn’t the company’s first NAS to cross the SlashGear test bench, but it’s perhaps the most home-user focused model so far. A two-bay network-attached backup box, the DS211 also throws in DLNA media streaming duties and cr...
Bottom line There’s a huge amount to like about the Synology DiskStation DS211. Not only is the NAS well made and compact, the DiskStation Manager 3.0 software stands head and shoulders above rivals for not only ease of initial setup but for ongoing use. We’d lik...
2011-10-04 09:03:59
Synology released a few new NAS boxes yesterday and today I’ve got the DS211 for review. The DS211 features the new DSM3.0 operating system which makes life much easier when you’re trying to work with it. The new interface, for lack of a better descri...
Good Low price when compared to others, Simple to set up and use, New DSM 3.0 really makes it easier to use...
Bad None really...
Bottom line The new DS211 is an excellent product really and I’m truly amazed at how smoothly everything works. The box only has 256MB of ram on board and it running a 1.6GHZ CPU, but yet the interface is smooth and problem free. The new DSM 3.0 interface is trul...

IntroductionThe rise of the digital household is a strange thing. It was less than a decade ago when many homes had one, perhaps two desktop computers or laptops. General media was on USB Flash Drives, CD, DVD and for the oldies, the floppy drive...

There are a few things that we don't review. When a company comes out with a product that is exactly the same with slightly better specs, we tend to look away from reviewing it. This is a general thing as it allows us to give product coverage to other com...

Bottom line Synology DS211 jest bardzo szybki. Czyta w tempie 645 Mb/s, zapisuje 415 Mb/s. Bardzo sprawnie przebiega obsługa samego pliku, jego otwierania i zamykania w nowym miejscu. Pięć milisekund straconych na te czynności należy do najkrótszych czasów w historii...

Synology DiskStation DS211 je dvoudiskové síťové úložiště pro domácí užití a malé firmy. Poskytuje základní možnosti nastavení diskového pole, po stránce softwarové však nabízí stejné schopnosti jako ostatní NASy Synology (blog, fotogalerie či mailserv...
Bottom line Po seznámení s DS211 musím říct, že slovo Synology je synonymem pro vyšší standard. Propracovanost síťových úložišť od této společnosti je úchvatná. A jsou to právě drobné detaily, které chybí konkurenci, a které vás donutí si připlatit pár korun navíc...
