Synology suggests specific drives for the DiskStation DS411, which format when inserted, though this is complicated for an amateur, particularly when compared to other drives which are easier to use. The DS411 includes four drive bays, an eSata port and the ability to add Open-source software. Experts will find setup options numerous but transfer speed low.

Value for money: 8, "Editor's Choice"

Micro Mart believe the DS411 NAS box from Synology will be a good investment which should pay for itself over time, making its higher price worth paying. It could be improved with a less plasticky build and the addition of USB3, but otherwise it could be considered almost flawless. The underlying computer in this system helps it achieve a decent performance, particularly for home use.
