Synology DiskStation DS216play Review Discussion

Recommended Posts

The Synology DS216play is a good option for multimedia enthusiasts who want an NAS that can handle 4K video at home, and also have the option of playing the same files on a tablet or phone at a lower resolution. The DS216play comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, and up to 16TB of capacity. When compared to the earlier DS214play, this manufacturer has made improvements in a number of other areas, including reduced noise and lowered the power requirements while also dropping the suggested price almost 20%. At the same time, some of the predecessor's features were left out, like an SD card slot.

I had the 214play and it's disappointing that the new version dropped the hot swap bays. The new design really cheapens the unit. It's a shame.

Synology makes great stuff but why the return to stacked drives and screws? Did they save that much money by getting rid of the Hot swap bays? Not cool in more ways than one.
