Software Features




NAS appliances are more than just a drop box for your data. The DS212 can play a large role in your computing and mobile experience.


Personally I really like the ability to play data back on my TVs in the house on DLNA devices. With a little setup you can also play music, movies and pictures back on your mobile devices as well since many of them also support DLNA.



The Packaging




The Synology DS212 uses a retail friendly package that gives users shopping at a brick and mortar store a lot of information.




On one side we found the features list.




On the back of the package Synology lists a graphic that shows some connectivity options and general uses.




On the final side Synology lists all of the hardware specifications and some of the features as well as the package contents.




Here we see some of the included manuals and accessory bits. The content disk included a quick install guide, full user manual, software setup utility and Data Replicator 3 for data backup from your MAC or PC.
