About a month ago, Synology launched the four bay follow up to the ever popular DS214play. This new network storage solution, dubbed the DS415play, carries over the same hardware platform from the aforementioned DS214play, albeit with two more bays.
The DS415play carries on Synology's commitment to the Intel Evansport platform, including hardware transcoding via the custom ffmpeg implementation, in addition to the ability to stream 1080p to any number of devices.
The DS415play from its inception was built to be the last media server you will need. At the heart of this solution, we have the Intel CE5335 dual-core SoC, paired with 1GB of DDR3. On the rear of the unit, you will find a single gigabit Ethernet port from which Synology says you can achieve 112 MB/s read and 101 MB/s write speeds in RAID 5 within a Windows OS environment.
Being the latest from Synology, the DS415play is backed by the award winning DSM 5.0 NAS operating system. Let's continue on now and take a close look at it.
Pricing and Availability
The specifications for the DS415play start with the dual-core Intel Atom, which operates at 1.6GHz. Moving down the list, we find hardware transcoding support for H.264, MPEG4, MPEG2 and VC-1 next to 1GB of DDR3.
Internal capacity for the DS415play peaks out at 24TB via four 6TB HDDs with additional support for EXT4, EXT3, FAT, NTFS and HFS+ via the USB 3.0 ports located on the rear of the unit.
MSRP for the Synology DS415play is listed at $569.99 with a two-year warranty.
