Ultimately casual users should stick to the company's budget friendly DS211j, but speed freaks looking to future proof their NAS without spending a small fortune will be well rewarded. quote

It’s hard to argue with the DS712+’s performance and software flexibility. The hardware is compact and easy to set up, quiet in operation, and the data throughput is strong. Synology’s DiskStation Manager is hands-down the best NAS interface we’ve seen.
