Synology DiskStation DS416 4-bay NAS Review

Storage/NAS by stefan @ 2016-02-12

By employing the low-power Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-212 32-bit CPU along with 1GB of DDR3 RAM memory, the DS416 was not designed to break any records, but supply enough performance and reliability for both home and SMB users. The product does feature dual LAN interfaces which support Link Aggregation (mostly used in larger enterprise environments), but the second link can be used for failover as well. DS416 is built on a proven chassis model but does not come with a HDMI interface too in order to use the NAS as a standalone Media Center while connected on our TV.
