Synology DiskStation DS410 Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅12-05-10

The Synology DS410 comes in a neat little box with a handle. Inside this box there is the NAS box, AC power, warranty leaflet, screws, CAT5 cable, cable clip and CD with instructions. All fairly standard accessories.

Taking a closer look at the DS410, the unit oozes quality. The outer shell is thick and well made, on the sides are the engraved Synology logos, adding a bit of style to a rather plain, large panel. The front panel takes advantage of corrugated front panelling. In the centre of this fascia is a strip with power, activity and HDD LED's. In the very middle is a power button with a polished metal finish.

A very nice looking unit

Moving to the rear of the DS410 we have the openings for the dual 80mm fans, below these two fans are the output ports.

- DC Output
- Two USB ports
- RST (Restart)

The DS410 is quite a weighty unit. It weighs in at 2.23KG, so its probably a good idea to have this places on a shelf or desk. The above outputs give quite a bit of flexibility, the LAN connector gives gigabit transfer speeds.

Below are the specifications for the DS410. It's a shame there is no USB 3.0 with this unit, since this is a new product and a new technology it would have been nice to integrate such a feature. For the price, the below specification is decent. Nice to see Synology giving so much detail about what's inside.
