Synology DS213air 2 bay NAS - A Magic Box of Tricks

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Storage

Read more: Synology DS213air 2 bay NAS - A Magic Box of TricksThe Synology DS213air is a lightweight two bay NAS unit and lightweight is something I would never have associated Synology with. True, the box is rather small, made of plastic and has only two bays. This makes it light in weight, but functionally, it's a different story: it has a lot of tricks on its sleeve that I would like to explore with you.

One of them, as indicated in the name, is its wireless abilities.
Come along and I will show you.

Apricorn Aegis Bio 3.0 - a very secure 1 TB External Hard Drive

This review can be short because we have reviewed many products from Apricorn, including an earlier model of the Aegis Bio with fingerprint reader.


We will state our bias upfront: we are fans of this Californian outfit which specialises in manufacturing external storage devices with great security features. However, I'm not particularly a fan of fingerprint readers, much preferring keypad security.

So how did we go with this one?

Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme PX-256M5P

Read more: Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme PX-256M5PUp until I embarked on this review, my strongest memory of Plextor is their dominance of the optical drive market in the 1990s.  Simply put, they had the best CD-ROM writer in the days when making "coasters" was commonplace.  These days Plextor has retained their storage beginnings with a focus on Solid State Drives (SSD).  DigitalReviews would like to thank Plextor for providing a M5Pro (PX-256M5P) Xtreme for review.

Let's take a break from looking at predominantly rack mounted NAS gear and let's have a look at the latest QNAP desktop offering.

Having reviewed the top-of-the-line QNAP Network Attached Storage system last year, the TS-EC879U-RP, our expectations are high.
QNAP sent us the TS-469L Turbo NAS, a 4-bay improved model of the trusted 469 series.
This is what became evident after some weeks of testing: the Q in QNAP stands for Quality and Quiet.

The Ultimate in NAS Reliability? Synology's Flagship RackStation RS3412RPxs

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Storage

 Read more: The Ultimate in NAS Reliability? Synology's  Flagship RackStation RS3412RPxsWhen the DigitalReviews team was in Taiwan half a year ago and visited Synology's head office, we came away very impressed with their scope of products and vision for the near future.

Our favourable impressions had been solidified over the years by many Synology product reviews. Their Network Attached Storage units for business and personal use have been scoring consistently high in our write-ups. Yet, in the back of our minds, we knew we had to leave some superlatives for their top of the range RackStation, the RS3412RPxs.


Let us take you on a little journey to describe the RS3412RPxs and the market it is aimed at.

Read more: Eight Bay NAS Overture - Synology DS1812+ Be it small businesses or avid prosumers, storage is one place where less is never going to be more. Understanding this, Synology's DS1812+ has not four, five or six but eight hard drive bays. With 3TB drives entering affordability, that's 24TB in one box.

Read on for our full review.

Synology RackStation RS812 NAS Server – Reviewed

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Storage

Read more: Synology RackStation RS812 NAS Server – Reviewed This must be one of the longest running "tests" we've done on any NAS (and we have reviewed quite a few!)...
We received the RS812 from Synology in November last year and now finally 11months later we get to write a review on it!
Why the delay and what good has come out of it?

Read more: OCZ Vertex 3 SSD – ReviewedIn preparation for a review of the Vertex 4 from OCZ we were given the Vertex 3 to test. The Vertex 3 has been out for quite some time now so plenty of review material is around for this reasonably priced SSD.
