Today we are reviewing a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device from Synology. The NAS in question is the newly released DS210j, which is a two drive NAS box with support for JBOD, RAID-0 and RAID-1.
If you’ve not heard of Synology before, it’ll probably be because they only make NAS devices (for home and office), and you’ve not really looked into any. The reason I say you won’t have looked into any, is because Synology are quite a big name in the NAS world, so you’d have been hard pressed to miss them. Synology have this to say about themselves:
“Synology at a Glance

Well, let’s get down to reviewing this thing shall we?
