Product on Review: Synology DS413j
Manufacturer and Sponsor: Synology
Street Price: £293 / $409 (At time of review)
Another week and another release from Synology. Last week we had the pleasure of taking a look at the new 2013 2-bay NAS; DS213, and this week we are taking a look at the 2013 4-bay NAS; DS413j. Expectations were high, and they delivered - this week we are expecting more of the same.
The DS413j is the successor to DS411j. Synology didn’t actually release a 2012 variant of this 4-bay NAS and so there is no DS412j. If you aren’t familiar with Synology’s naming system it’s very intuitive - Diskstation (DS) Number of bays (4) Year of production (13). The variable at the end of each of the product range such as + or j symbolise - Performance (+) Entry Level, storage focussed (j) or no symbol for a mixture of the both – performance and storage. So the unit that we are focussing on today is entry level and aimed at small business users.
