Inget betygSynology DS212j NAS Review
"Priced at £165inc VAT (GBP) the DS212j is a great value for money option. Never has there been a time when the opportunity to own a NAS has been so attractive. Though there are some shortcomings %u2013 albeit, slight niggles. As I outlined with the DS212 %u2013 the DS212j also lacks the ability to use SATA 3 drives. Since this unit will populate 2012 and many users are investing in SATA 3, our NAS should really accommodate this standard of drive."
