Not long ago we tested a dual-disk Network Attached Storage device DS207+ developed by Synology and found it to be the best we had ever dealt with in our labs. Boasting superb performance, widest functionality and beautiful design, it has remained unrivalled till today and we have not really expected it to get a worthy opponent any time soon. However, it is Synology itself that has released a new dual-disk NAS that claims to be such. The DS209+ is now the top model in the dual-disk NAS series from the company. This model is an improvement over the DS207+ in such key parameters as processor performance and the amount of system memory.

So, we do expect to have a new performance leader in this class. Besides updating its product range, Synology has recently revised its Disk Station Manager, introducing a number of innovations we are going to cover in this review.
