Synology has a history of making excellent NAS boxes, and the new
four bay DS410j is no exception
. Front and center on the spec sheet is support for Apple’s Time Machine backup system, a rarity on third-party NAS units.
The unit is designed for home and entry-level business use. The four drive bays can take up to 2TB 3.5 inch drives. The DS410j also supports multiple RAID configurations when loaded with multiple compatible drives. Automated backup and DNLA support come standard as well. The DS410j can be purchased with or without hard drives preinstalled, but either way it’s going to be pricey. If you look around, the driveless version can be had for a bit under $400.
