Conclusion

When we tested the Synology DS107+, it got a very positive report from us. It boasted the highest quality and broadest functionality we had seen by that moment. So we are especially delighted that Synology has been improving its product since then. Thanks to the recently released firmware the DS207+ brings about a new level of functionality. For a NAS, firmware plays an important role, and the DS207+ is an example of that.

Our tests also indicate that the DS207+ delivers highest performance. Considering this, we can recommend this NAS for every user. Its drawbacks are negligible while its price (about $320) is most reasonable.

We here at X-bit labs decided to award Synology DS207+ with our prestigious Editor’s Choice title for the best high-speed NAS server:

Highs:

  • Excellent speed parameters
  • Cute exterior design
  • High quality of manufacture
  • eSATA port
  • User-friendly web-interface
  • Various integrated services
  • Can be connected to an external network via PPPoE
  • Excellent logging opportunities
  • Copying data from external HDDs with a press of a single button
  • Telnet and SSH available in the official firmware
  • Handy tools for working with the device remotely

Lows:

  • High price
  • Source code of the firmware is not free
  • VPN protocols other than PPPoE are not supported
  • You have to use a special program to load the firmware into the device before beginning to work with it
  • Noisier fan than in the DS107+
  • Fuzzy image from the camera in the Surveillance Station
  • No integrated Help system
