DSM5.0, Power Consumption & System Specs
One of the key features that I have to point out with the slim is the presence of an unaltered user interface. Whilst the DS414slim is not really built for a power user, the software features that it has to offer, including the add-on packages is still fundamental to the overall user experience. The layout, colour scheme and ease of use are all what make DSM5.0 one of Synologys best user interfaces to date.
Dropping down to a 2.5″ drive does inherently mean that the overall power consumption is lower as well. WD’s Red drives are also built for just this type of use, so their power consumption and operation is optimised for entry level NAS products such as the slim.
