Amazon currently offers the Synology 2-Bay DS218j NAS DiskStation bundled with two WD Red 4TB Hard Drives for $315.97 shipped. Normally purchasing everything in this bundle would run you closer to $370, with today’s offer marking the best value we’ve seen to date. Synology’s 2-Bay NAS boasts a maximum of 113MBps transfer speeds. In terms of I/O, you’re looking at two USB 3.0 ports as well as Gigabit Ethernet. Plus, with the two WD drives, you’ll have 8TB of NAS-grade storage. All of which makes this bundle a fantastic option for those looking to get started with a home media server. Both Synology’s NAS and the WD drives carry 4.2+ star ratings from hundreds.

Alternatively, if you already have two hard drives collecting dust in a drawer, you can grab Synology’s 2-Bay DS218j NAS for $167 by itself. Or if today’s featured deal has you thinking that some extra storage in your workstation would be helpful, WD’s 8TB Elements Desktop Hard Drive is only $140

Aside from just handling your home’s media backups, Synology’s NAS can double as a security camera system. Take a look at the perks of Synology Surveillance Station in our hands-on review.
