Eco Friendly

Synology Disk Station is designed and developed perpetually with the concept of energy saving. Compared with average PC counterparts, Synology Disk Station consumes a relatively low amount of power and has the HDDs hibernate when not in use. This not only helps to save energy but also extends the lifespan of the hard disk.

Synology Disk Station truly earns the title of "green product" because of the unique Scheduled Power On/Off feature, and the smart fan design effectively cools down the system with minimum power consumption, yet keeps the system quiet on operation.

Finally, all Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology recognizes its responsibility as a global citizen and is continually working to reduce the environmental impact of the products we create

5* Synology DS210j review
Reviewed by Sonic Jim on 28/07/2010
After thoroughly comparing the market for NAS drives this was what suited my requirements the best and I've got to say I am not disappointed.

There are loads of features that make this a great home-server. it holds all my media and documents so I can access my files from either of the 2 laptops, desktop or even my iphone at home - or via any device over the internet. I can even host my own website on it and share photos with family in the US.

I would like to make the point you do need to read the manual to enjoy the full benefits this device has to offer. Initial setup was really easy, but the more advanced features do require a certain amount of understanding of port forwarding.

Also, the fan is not as silent as I would have liked as the unit is in my tv-stand and can be heard at times.

But all in all an excellent product I can (and have) highly recommend(ed)

For info the HD's i bought for it were:
2x1TB F3 7200rpm SATA 3Gb/s 32MB (Quicklinx : 65QCWS)
5* Fantastic device
Reviewed by Andy Porter on 28/09/2010
I bought this device because of problems networking my laptop to my main PC (due to main PC running Windows 7 64 bit). Thank goodness I did! I am still discovering all it can do but so far I can sync files between desktop and laptop (using Alway Sync which is freeware), access the files on any computer which has internet access (work on them and they get automatically synced via aforementioned program) and even upload files from work via the web browser interface. As stable and unobtrusive as you like into the bargain.
Choice between RAID 0 and RAID 1 (which is rare amongst other NAS servers I looked at). I still have a lot to discover I'm sure but thus far it has far exceeded my expectations.
Quite expensive as has been mentioned in previous review but well worth the money IMHO.
5* Synology DS210J
Reviewed by Ken on 29/11/2010
I purchased The Synology DS210J in march 2010, I don't usually do reviews and have waited 9 months to do this one. If you are thinking of buying one, then you won't be disappointed, it does everything it claims to do in the instructions, and has never let me down, it never disappears from the network unlike all the other NAS drives I have bought. The manufacturers have updated the firmware at least twice in 9 months. If you are thinking about buying one, DO IT.

Reviewed by Sanjay on 01/05/2010
Recently bought this after much research. This may not be the cheapest on the market, however, the difference (between NetGear products)is well worth it.

The facility you have at your fingertips; just amazing.

We have 2 desktops (Windows, Linux), 2 laptops, 2 x Samsung DLNA TV and PS3 ; all connect to the Synology ; without any intervention at all.

In a technical race; this product beats the Netgear ; any and every day.

Very, quite. Very low power usage. Highly recommended.
