Default Synology DS214play 2-bay NAS Review

DS214play is one of the latest 2-bay NASes from Synology which has at its core the Intel Evansport CE5535 processor coupled with 1GB of DDR3 RAM; this product is capable of doing on-the-fly Full HD transcoding to DLNA-enabled devices and runs the latest DSM software version.

Since the NAS is mainly aimed at home use, we would have liked Synology to include a slightly modified design chassis in order to include a HDMI port in the back but also an IR sensor in the front (remote oriented) for being able to operate XBMC straight on our Full-HD television.
can't agree more with your assessment! this little device can easily be placed near your TV and be your one device, instead of having to rely on an external media player; I think QNAP does do HDMI and XBMC combo.

on a Synology related note, DSM 5.0 was released today!
