The DiskStation DS214se is Synology’s economical two-bay NAS with the capability to host, share, and protect data and is optimized to be an personal NAS server running the ever incomparable DiskStation Manager (DSM).
Lifehacker has a list of the top five NASs, as voted by their readers.
Earlier in the week we asked you which NAS enclosures you thought were the best. We heard your nominations loud and clear, and now we’re back to take a look at the top five.
Ars Technica provides a 6 page review of the Synology DS-412+, focusing on features, software, and pretty much everything you’d want to know about any NAS.
Other contenders in the home NAS space include QNAP, NetGear, and Iomega, but I went with Synology chiefly due to their reputation for performance. The DroboFS was the very definition of “easy to use,” but after more than a year the slow read and write speeds just became too much. After scouring forums and reviews to find a replacement, I kept coming back to the then-newly released DS-412+.

AnandTech dissects, thoroughly reviews, and benchmarks the Synology DS211+:
Synology has a sensible model number nomenclature in which the last two digits refer to the year through which the model is intended for sale. The first set of digits refer to the maximum number of bays supported. Some models have a + at the end, signifying higher performance. Today, we have the DS211+ for review. The DS refers to the product category, Disk Station. 2 indicates a 2 bay model, and the 11 indicates a 2011 model. It is supposed to have a higher performance compared to the DS211 which was released in November 2010.
One can hardly be a market leader with a small product range. So, after announcing its entry-level products for the 2010 model year, Synology updates its high-end product line-up, too. In this review we are going to talk about the DS210+ Network Attached Storage which, as its name suggests, is designed for two hard disk drives.
