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.
