Synology Disk Station DS409slim is designed to provide users with a budget-friendly solution for easy file sharing and backup. The snap-in 2.5” hard drive design brings low power consumption, quiet operation, reliability and easy disk replacement in a compact design. Its software, Synology Disk Station Manager 2.1, delivers ease of use and variety of features. It is designed to work with 2.5” hard drives. The low power consumption characteristic of 2.5” hard drives will lower your electricity bill, as well as reduce your carbon footprint. The smart fan design keeps the fan off under normal operations and spinning up at a very low speed only when needed, thus minimizing the noise level. In addition, 2.5” hard drives have reduced vibration, increased MTBF (mean time before failure), and shock tolerance. Synology Download Station 2 functions as a 24x7 BitTorrent, FTP, HTTP, eMule, and NZB download center. Synology Audio Station supports music, Internet radio stations, and iPod playback with connected USB speakers. An optional direction-free Synology Remote allows you to freely enjoy your music. Web-streaming mode allows your music to be shared with multiple users over the Internet. UPnP support allows users to stream multimedia files with an UPnP Digital Media Adapter (DMA) on a stereo system or a TV-set. Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox360 are also supported. iTunes Server is an easy way to share music to other iTunes clients over the network. USB Copy provides a plug-n-save solution to store data. Synology Data Replicator 3 allows Windows users to back up desktop data to the DS409slim. Users can select immediate, sync, or scheduled backup according to their needs. The Network Recycle Bin ensures all deleted files are recoverable from the recycle bin. Synology Photo Station 3 simplifies photo, video, and blog sharing over the Internet.
