Synology Disk Station DS411J NAS

Reviews, Storage


Just so everyone’s clear, this NAS comes in at £280 or so depending on where you shop; that’s without any storage included. If you want something in the region of 4-8TB, the price at least doubles.

Now this shouldn’t put you off if you want a fantastic network storage device, as it does come packed with enough features to keep the device multi-faceted; it’s not just somewhere to back your files up to. In reality, this is more of a home server in a can. The only real downside is that it costs so much. You certainly get what you pay for, but this one might be a bit much for many.


  • Excellent feature list
  • iTunes, remote security, media server, download station functionality
  • Ability to take large ammounts of storage
  • Accessible from home and away
  • iPod like exterior gives it a modern, professional look


  • Quite expensive
  • Bug in image viewer causes some images not to preview

NB. All files seen in this review are for testing purposes only. They were all summarily deleted after use.
