Amazon has the Synology DS213+ DiskStation 2-Bay (Diskless) Network Attached Storage for $299 with free shipping. That’s $156 below retail and the lowest price we’ve ever seen by $20. Please note this price drop is likely due to Synology’s announcement of the DS214 system. Both devices have extremely close tech specs but the DS214 has Synology’s new hot-swappable drive system and increased read/write speeds. It is due to ship in the next few weeks.

Perfect for home and small office use, the Synology OS features iOS integration, AirPlay support, VPN server, ERP software, mail server, web server, anti-virus, and network video surveillance built-in. iTunes support allows users to stream stored content to their favorite iDevice wherever they have internet access via 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.

Fill your new Synology with these Seagate NAS-optimized 4TB drives for $180 with code EMCYTZT4668 or grab the Western Digital 2TB Red drives one sale for $99.
