Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

RAID1 levels the playing ground somewhat with the Iomega drive marginally pulling ahead in the random operations, but the DS210j strives forward with equally impressive sequential operational speeds as previously observed. Unfortunately, the StorCenter ix2-200 does not support RAID0 so we don’t have a comparison there.

Fill it up with your own disks and away you go

Verdict

RH Recommended Medal

At around £160 the DS210j seems like an amazing bargain, but don’t forget – you need to supply your own disks. Don’t be put off though, it may be a bit more expensive than the competition once it’s kitted out and there are certainly faster Nas boxes out there, but in terms of features the DS210j is the choice for the Nas user who wants it all.

So if you’ve got money burning a hole in your pocket, a couple of Sata disks laying around and a desire to do everything, don’t hesitate to expand your already techno-centred life with the Synology DiskStation DS210j. ®
