From all the Synology products we have reviewed at Vortez we have always been left impressed and they remain a brand that we highly regard. Synology have an extensive product range for home users, right to enterprise level and so it’s no wonder that regardless of who you are, if you are looking for a NAS solution then Synology have to be considered, they are stalwarts in this industry.
Today we will be taking a look at the DS411. The next product up from DS211 and the successor to last years DS410. If you aren’t familiar with Synology’s naming system. It’s very initiative - Diskstation (DS) Number of bays (2) Year of production (11). The variable at the end of each of the product range such as + or j symbolise - Performance (+) Entry Level (j). So the unit that we are focussing on today is right in the middle of the entry level and performance models and can be deemed as a mainstream NAS solution specifically for the Home/Business Workgroup.
