Media Server

As I hinted earlier, Music and Video tends to be a popular reason to consider such centralised storage options. A particular perk of the 211 and 411j NAS systems is that they offer a sizeable amount of flexibility with media.

The most notable feature is DLNA Media Server capability. This will allow users to stream music and video from the NAS box to certified media players, which range from games consoles (XBOX360, PS3) to Wi-Fi equipped Televisions.

Download Station

Don't lie. Many of you are likely to be hefty Torrent users. Synology NAS systems are equipped with an e-mule based application where your server can be left to download independently of other machines.

I mean pictures and description of the PCB components, like RAM module - soldered on the board or inserted into a socket, ROM flash memory removable or not, etc., just like you did at review.
