Conclusion

There are many good and very good network devices available but most of them have this or that flaw. The Synology DS107+ may not be ideal, either, yet its drawbacks are so few in comparison with its advantages that we can easily disregard them. The manufacturer’s attitude towards his product and his customer is noteworthy, too. Few companies allow accessing their devices via Telnet and SSH or dedicate a place at the official forum for enthusiasts to discuss how to modify the device’s firmware. In fact, the only drawback we could find about the DS107+ is that the source code of its firmware is not available for free but this is not actually a defect of the NAS itself. So, we are highly pleased with the DS107+ and recommend it for all users who want to have a high-quality and high-speed NAS with rich extra features at home or in the office. The only thing that may somewhat disappoint you is the price, which is about $280 currently.
