Synology - DS-106 NAS Server Review

Former staff writer    -   December 28, 2006


Conclusion

No matter what angle I look at this DS-106 from, I am always left with the same feeling of satisfaction. In my opinion, Synology has taken about 90% of the hassle out of tasks that previously were difficult or cumbersome to setup. The ability to host a website with a few simple clicks, to setup a FTP server, or to even share files with friends is brought to you in one simple, yet elegant package... and that package is the DS-106 from Synology. Throughout every test that I performed, the features of the DS-106 performed outstandingly. Since I didn't experience a single hiccup, the simple fact of the matter is that if you are looking for a backup, file/web hosting, or just network storage solution, the DS-106 fits ALL of those requirements. This is the first product that we have had the chance to review from Synology and this unit is the "icing on the cake" of their product line. The Synology DS-106, with its overall outstanding performance in backup solutions and network storage, has definitely earned a place in my books.
