The editor Sasha Muller, who was in charge of this product review, acclaimed: "When it comes to features and performance the Synology is in a league of its own."

Taipei, Taiwan, February 28, 2009 --( Muller was very impressed by the enhanced AJAX-based management UI and commented: "Once the Synology is up and running it's impressive. The web interface is well presented and, despite the myriad options, easy to navigate. It's even possible to drag the icons of your most used options into a quick-start bar."

The hardware performance of the DS209+ was followed by a burst of applause. The files transfer speed was the fastest among nine reviewed NAS devices. Muller highlighted: "It's fast too. Fitted with a pair of 500GB Western Digital 500AVJS drives, the Synology wrote at 35MB/sec for large files and reading was even faster at 44MB/sec." Muller was impressed by the versatile and advanced features, including local backup, printer sharing, Surveillance Station, web hosting, iTunes, UPnP media serving, and a comprehensive range of remote accessing functions, too. "When it comes to features, the DS209+ has few peers," Muller added.
