Synology Disk Station DS107+

Page 2 »

 When it comes to having extra storage space, what is the ideal solution for you? That all depends on your unique setup and usage. The most common accessories when it comes to storage is the flash drives and hard drive enclosures. These devices allow you to transport data from one computer to another computer relatively easy, but is there a better option with more possibilities? The next logical step up would be to move to a NAS (Network Attached Storage) unit. Not only does a NAS give you an easy way to move files from one computer to another, it also gives you several options that a standard flash drive/ hard drive enclosure can not. Today we are going to be taking a look at one; the Synology Disk Station DS107+ NAS units.
