Noise levels of Synology DS214se

Recommended Posts

I'm considering the DS214se for a home backup/storage solution and I'm rather concerned about the noise levels. I see in the review that it produces about 18.4dB(A) but what about when it's running with normal 3.5 mechanical harddrives? What is the noise level then?

Its one of the quietest models for fan noise, although from what I recall the drive mounting was directly to an internal metal bracket. You'd probably hear some form of vibration or HDD seeking noise slightly more than other models with some isolation. That said I have sensitive hearing and even the NAS models with rubber isolators (higher-end synology models and others) and I can still hear 2.5" and 3.5" disk activity.
