When it comes to the hardware Synology managed to squeeze a powerful 1.6GHz processor in the slim DS212 chassis. The system uses 256MB of DDR3 memory and has a whole host of connectivity options including dual USB 3.0, a single USB 2.0 port and a SD memory reader slot for easy file transfers from your cameras. The main I/O device is the gigabit Ethernet port that allows your DS2212 to talk to all of the computes on your home network.

 

With its slim size and small footprint the DS212 holds two hard drives and you can purchase the system with or without hard drives. Our system shipped with drives installed and the system was configured for redundancy for increased data security. Being a consumer unit the DS212 was designed for quiet operation; you can put this NAS right next to your computer and not hear it over your rooms' ambient noise.

The general features list is more for out tech audience, but you can be assured Synology has included all of the bells and whistles for the most demanding users including those who want to incorporate their mobile devices.

 

We noted the Synology DS212 on sale for a little over $300 without hard drives included.
