Synology DS410j Review

Synology is a developer of friendly and easy to use NAS-servers ranging from models supporting 10-disk RAID arrays to small single-drive home servers. In this review we look at the Synology DiskStation DS410j, which is a 4-bay home and small business NAS-unit with a wide range of options running on latest DiskStation Manager (DSM) software.

For all those home users with their network running of of a 100MB WIFI/broadband router/switch the Synology DiskStation DS410j is a great solution. I like the setup simplicity compared to Windows Home Server. Since the boot partition is RAID1 using all drives, recovery is a much milder headache when a drive (inevitably) dies!;)

We mentioned it in the review, but the system partition is a really nice - makes it so easy to come back from a failure as you say. I haven't played with the new WHS build yet, not sure if they "fixed" that this time around.
