Synology DS420+ DiskStation Desktop 4 bays
Synology DS420+ is designed for IT enthusiasts and home users. Equipped with a 2-core processor and built-in M.2 NVMe 2280 SSD slots for cache acceleration, DS420+ is ideal for data sharing, video streaming, and photo indexing.
Network-attached storage (NAS) isn’t the most exciting product category, and, as such, we don’t usually witness substantial changes between product cycles, and that’s certainly the case with the new Synology DS420+. It’s a mid-tier NAS, rocking quite the capable Intel processor, four bays for plenty of storage, and an attractive price.
Effectively replacing the DS418, you can think of the DS420+ as a slightly more affordable and less equipped version to the older DS918+ with upgraded internals. Is it a vast improvement and worth your money for the home or small office? We took one for a spin.
