Synology DS212+ NAS Reviewed
The Synology DS212+ is a minor update to the DS212. The DS212+ drops the e-SATA port and bumps the processor up 400Mhz over its predecessor to an even 2Ghz, but adds USB 3.0 and brings along all of the PC backup, DLNA, and file sharing goodness. I would have appreciated a bit more information about the encryption engine and how it keeps the CPU unburdened, but there is no doubt that Synology puts together a solid and versatile NAS unit. It sounds like the 2.0Ghz processor provides a definite performance boost.
Synology loves hardware revisions, and the DS-212+ is the latest in the business series of dual-bay NASes from the network storage company. Sporting a faster processor, USB3, and lower power consumption, the DS-212+ shapes up to be a good improvement on the DS-211+.
