AJAX-based Synology Receives Award

Disk Station DS207+ Top Choice

Synology Disk Station DS207+ scores 5 out of 5 in the categories of features, performance, value for money, and overall evaluation, receiving the Editor's Choice award from Personal Computer World Magazine, UK. After a prudent testing on 8 popular 2-bay NAS servers on the market, the editor, Mr. Paul Monckton, gave the DS207+ the following verdict: "Stunning performance and a mind-boggling level of functionality, yet simple to use."

"Diverse functionality, good performance, and flexibility of usage are no doubt the dominant points for decision making when users choose a NAS server," said Victor Chiang, Sales Manager of Synology UK Limited, "we are proud to be recognized by Personal Computer World Magazine in this group test." Synology DS207+ is the only NAS server that has achieved the perfect score in the overall evaluation. Its feature set shines in the specification chart, and thanks to the flexible design of the AJAX-based Disk Station Manager 2.0, these configuration can be done very easily. Besides, the lab results confirm the DS207+'s absolute leading position in file reading speed and also-strong position in writing. "[T]he range of features and capabilities on offer is far in excess of any other in this round-up and, during testing, its performance was often around double that of the competition," commented Monckton.

Personal Computer World was established in 1978 and, with 30 years of solid experience, it delivers professional reviews and group tests on the latest technology products to its readers monthly. Although it also offers awards to other fine products, only the best product in a comparative group test deserves its Editor's Choice award. This time, the Editor's Choice award goes to the Synology DS207+. "Its bewilderingly huge feature set is tamed by a simple user interface and complemented by blistering performance that leaves the best of the rest far behind," concluded Monckton in the end of this nine-page long review.
