PERFORMANCE rating score 7.00

VALUE FOR MONEY
rating score 7.00
  PROS
designVery simple Plastic design but still very much befitting of a NAS and more appopriately Mac environment. OPlus the unit will not generate enough heat for the plastic to be a problem as also keeps product costs low enough to keep this NAS at around £100 without the drives.
featuresThe Synology DS216J may well be low of the NAS hardware front but it can perform and provide most of the standard file based tasks that other NAS units can do outside of the J series. You can forget about the likes of Plex Media Server transcoding, but you will have excellent Plex video streaming localy as well as Synology DSM NAS OS abilities to create download tasks, backup images, RAID storage, and DLNA media distribution.
performanceDon't expect the ground to shake with it's awesome power! But again, it performs solidly and comfortably at those low end file based tasks and is definitely trhe NAS server of choice for those looking for Mac Backup images with the likes of Apple Time Machine.
valueFor the cost, the Synology DS216J is an excellent NAS that is is one for the first time network Attached Storage user or those with simple, small file tasks. I would recommend this NAS with a couple of Large Hard drives like teh WD 4TB Red or for those on a low budget, skip NAS drives entirely and go for the Seagate Archive Derives in a RAID 1 (which you can do because these non-RAID drives are ok for simple mirroring).

  CONS
designNAS Hard Drives are installed internally (no trays on the Synology DS216J) so a tiny (and I really do mean tiny) amount of physical installation is required.
featuresDue to those hard drives being installed internally without trays, you lose hot swapping as an option. Also although it will provide most file based NAS applications, it will be on a more minimal scale to those you would expect from the standard Synology DS216 or DS216PLAY
performanceThe DS216J leaves very little room for growth or evolution - You get a solid NAS that performs ploddingly in the background - but 3 years down the line it will not have grown into your dream NAS.
valueBuy this NAS for tasks that are smaller and more manageable and don;t make plans for expansion. this is a NAS for today and even for tomorrow... just not for next week!

Dual drives give this great safety in case one of the drive fail. You put two drives in there and its like having copy of each other. People say this RAID1 even improves the download speed.

Great box for my backups and I can even stream my family videos on my TV using DLNA which is built in.

Can I add a second drive at a later date and configure as Raid 1 ... Don't have a lot of confidence in RAID 1 at the moment.. A disk failed on my old LG NAS, it also wiped most of the folders on the other disk at the dime time.. I feel I was lulled into a sense of false security.. Not sure of the value if it does that on failure!

Reply from SPAN.COM | 12/12/2016

Yes, you can run with just one drive as JBOD - We would recommend Raid 1 as this "Mirrors" the drives. So you would only have one drive usable - but if a drive fails then you don’t lose your data.

It is relatively cheap NAS but yet very good for simple tasks. I am streaming music to my Iphone and Ipad with no problems. As well as backing up all my videos and photos from my Iphone when memory is full.

There are DS216SE DS216J DS216 to choose from when you have a tight budget. Or maybe its cheaper to go ds116 with external backup drive.

Come with synology ds216j manual and easy setup. Very good price. I was choosing between DS216SE and ds216play. Before had DS215j.
