Media streaming and other functions are a breeze to set up with the built-in wizard and any number of advanced settings can be tinkered with – all without leaving the comfort of Synology’s friendly DiskStation Manager interface.

With claimed average RAID 5 read speeds of 110MB/s and write speeds of 54.9MB/s, Synology has certainly sets the bar high. Yet in tests it seems that 110MB/s is a lot to ask, as the DS410 falls nearly 45MB/s short in a RAID 5 configuration.

However, 110MB/s is also a lot to ask from the mix of slightly aging Seagate and Western Digital drives supplied with our DS410. The two 80GB Western Digital disks are from a time when PATA interfaces were still an option.
