Synology is no stranger to our storage section and we quite openly admit that we have a soft spot for many of their storage solutions, and we aren’t alone. Over the last few years momentum has been growing for this Taiwanese brand; not only is their hardware stylish, good quality and reliable but their notorious Operating System dubbed DSM has paved the way for much of their success too.
Under the spotlight today is something quite special. Back in October of last year Synology released the DS213air; a 2-bay NAS incorporating WiFi technology. A first for the company and one that will be certain to entice the storage cohorts.
Due to DS213air having WiFi built-in, it can be connected wirelessly to a network without cumbersome cabling, or be configured as a hotspot to extend the range of an existing WiFi network. Users can even deploy the DS213air as a wireless router to create a wireless environment at no extra cost.
Will this new WiFi functionality be the icing on the cake? Let’s find out!
