It only does… EVERYTHING! // Synology DiskStation DS216 Review // NAS Server

The Synology DiskStation DS216 is a dual-bay NAS (Network Attached Storage) server that’s capable of more features than I could cover in one video.
Capable of delivering your data quickly, backing up your data, acting as a personal cloud server or VPN – this little box does it all. For a price.

(Also, their DiskStation OS just updated to a new version and added even more features.)

El Majdaki says:

Mike Nelson says:

You have a really cool voice. Could listen to you all day, but I have shit to do! 😀

Mark Tony says:

can i ask what your usual broadband speeds are?

robert feller says:

Great review…please don’t say “bad boy” in the future. Never. Ever!

Max351 says:

Thanks for the video! I was very interested to see you own some WD MyCloud NAS. You don’t really compare them to the Synology. What’s so different about those 2? And what is it you can’t do with the WD? Thanks.

Roxroy Bollers says:

do know if I can install Ubuntu on this?

enough is enough, kid.

Gracie Henker says:

why are you rushing your speaking so much…. slow the fuck down a bit I’m sure most people won’t mind when you aren’t falling over your own speaking making it obvious your reading a script
EDIT: Ill offer my solution so I’m not trolling, Do your audio segment then prepare the video part afterward.

SirCrest says:

That’s a pretty nifty small box. I guess if you don’t have too much data (like maybe 4TB [Which is still sizable]) then it would be a pretty decent choice given you could get a set of ST NAS 4TB for about 130-140 each for a solid RAID1.

but I like the idea of expansion. The plugins and OS looks really cool though, like it’s a proper server and not just a straight SAN. I sympathize with all the external boxes, they are sometimes cheap and a short term solution, it’s an addiction.

Great video as always.

quiton Ansley says:

what does it mean by dongle does that mean it can connet by wifi to or by wifi with a wireless usb?

PeeWeePotato says:

Love your voice.

高泓 says:

Sysnology’s NAS does some kind of transcode

hooli manco says:

why say naz when its nas

Nexus Designs says:

please make a video about the WordPress app on the nas

VesselGr says:

Can it works as a system backup server?

Paul Anthony Fawcett says:

I’m currently looking at purchasing a Synology and this answered any questions i had running about in my head. Good review buddy. P.S. Great voice. I work in the broadcast television industry as a cameraman and i found your voice to be right up there with pro voiceover guys. You should look into doing voiceover work. I’ll keep you i mind for sure should i require an American VO in the future. Good job.

ImperiuM97 says:

can you stream files from usb atached HD with the app ?

Marcos Melendez says:

It looked like this had gaming capabilities but the guy never touched that. This is just another click baiting video

Stelan1999 says:

i got a problem with my ds214 which has upload/download speeds of 1-2mbit/s…

toobalkain says:

Cache means “a group of things that are hidden,” and entered English in the 1700s. It can also mean cache memory, or “a part of a computer’s memory where information is kept so that the computer can find it very quickly.” This word is pronounced CASH.

Cachet has several meanings. It can mean “prestige,” “medicine prepared so that it can be swallowed,” or “an official seal,” the oldest meaning of the word in English, first used in the 1600s. It is pronounced cash-AY.

BajaMedic says:

Looking at the sinology DS218+ and found your review of the older model. Great review!

Ke LI says:

It can not backup videos (ios 10.3.3).

Capp00 says:

hehehe…..dongle. Always thought the person that named that was just trolling his friends and it stuck.
This looks like a pretty good NAS option. Thanks for another excellent review.

Accessfm says:

Great review but it’s completely confusing why you would have a game controller resting up against the NAS in you thumbnail when it has no capabilities of that kind whatsoever.

Jumoka Cobbs -Sounds Nerdy says:

Great review! I have this on my wish list on Amazon and will be pulling the trigger soon.

JessTheUnicorn says:

Your cables scare me 😛

Alvaro Augusto Fiorotti Junior says:
