Synology has quietly pushed out the new DiskStation DS214 as their latest offering for SOHO and small businesses. It features dual-core processing capabilities, increased read/write speeds of over 100 MB/s, and new tool-less bays for easier drive installation.

This new NAS will also run DSM 4.3, which includes a revamped Cloud Station, Photo Station, Video Station web apps and complementary iOS apps. We have reviewed several of Synology’s offerings in the past and have always been impressed with their flexibility and breadth of rich-features. The DS214 is now shipping over seas and will be available in the US within the next few weeks for $329.99. Full press release can be found below the fold.

To laminate how great of a value the new DS214 is we are going to take a look at a current ‘deal’ being floated for the previous generation DS213+. We must advise that it is a smarter move to hold off for a few weeks and pick up the DS214 as the two models are nearly identical. Both NAS systems include a dual-core processor, 512 MB of system memory, 2 drive bays, 1x USB 2.0 / 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1x Gigabit ethernet, and 2 year warranties. There are only two advantages to the DS213+. First, the processor is clocked a negligible .01 GHz faster and second it includes an eSata port. We believe that a current generation system with hot-swappable drives for $10 less is a much more attractive purchase.

Amazon is running a promotion that packages a free Sonos wireless bridge with the purchase of any Sonos Play:1, Play:3, or Play:5 speaker systems.
