After officially announcing the NAS last week, Synology is showcasing the unit at its Computex booth. The DS414slim is one of the smallest four-bay NAS systems we’ve seen thus far. The portable size means that you can only fit in 2.5-inch drives, with a 2 TB drive limit for individual drives.

The NAS runs a full-fledged version of Synology’s DSM 5.0, a feature-rich web-based OS that allows you to manage, monitor and control settings on your NAS. Hardware-wise, the device looks like a trimmed down version of larger Synology models, which is a good thing. At the front, you get status indicators for all the drives and the LAN, USB ports, whereas the drive bays can be accessible from the back.

With a price tag of $299, the DS414slim is one of the most affordable four-bay solutions from Synology.
