The DiskStation DS214se is Synology's economical two-bay NAS with the capability to host, share, and protect data and is optimized to be an personal NAS server running the ever incomparable DiskStation Manager (DSM). The DS214se is quoted to deliver an average write speeds under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment of 102MB/s read and 58MB/s write. Synology says the "se" stands for "single-role edition," which generally means it's targeted to single-user environments. Synology is quick to mention though that just because it's low-cost, doesn't mean it's short on any of the core Synology features.

Indeed a nice little box. Hopefully we see the prices fall even more.
Avid shoppers may look for discounted previous generations like the DS212j which I got via Amazon for the same amount of money and which has a bit more heft and stamina.

Definitely a fair point. To that end I do wish Synology turned over their units a little less frequently and had fewer steps in between. That said, the strategy seems to be working for them.
