The Synology DS415play is an affordable NAS that gives media enthusiasts plenty of capacity for their files and allows them to easily stream in HD through multiple devices.

No mention that this is an Atom-based NAS dual core with HT, not the dual core ARM Marvell of the 414.  No internal pictures.  No power consumption figures. No noise readings.

 

OK for a draft, looking forward to the real review. :)

We usually note the CPU, that's a mistake. We never worry about internals and haven't historically don't do power/noise. I get why an enthusiast might enjoy more photos, etc but most of the readership has indicated they don't care. I'd be curious as to what's interesting to you though as we consider the feedback as the review process evolves.

Noise and power consumption really are a must - these things are designed for home use, and I don't know anyone that's happy to run a noisy machine that sucks power.

My NAS sits in the basement, it can be a 5 piece band for all I care ;)

 

We'll see what we can do...
