Today only, as part of its Epic Daily Deals, Amazon is taking up to 32% off a collection of storage and NAS from Synology, Crucial, Lexar, Toshiba, and more. With prices starting at $20, you’re looking at free shipping with a Prime membership or in orders over $25. Our top pick is the Synology 2-bay DS220+ NAS for $239.99. Normally fetching $300, you’re looking at a match of the all-time low from Prime Day at 20% off and still one of the very first price cuts overall. Delivering a 2-bay design, one of Synology’s latest NAS is perfect for everything from light Time Machine backups to handling Plex media server tasks and more. Around back, there’s two Gigabit Ethernet slots alongside a pair of USB 3.0 ports. Time and time again we’ve found it to be a compelling option, and you can get the full scoop in our hands-on review.
Amazon 1-day storage deals:
For those just getting started with always-on storage, going with the highly-rated Synology DS220j at $190 might be a better option than any of the discounted NAS today. You’re notably stepping down to a single hard drive bay, but will make out for less than the lead deal. I’ve been using one of these exclusively for backups over the past few months and have been impressed with the performance.
Synology DS220+ 2-Bay NAS features:
Built with a dual-core processor, an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, and Btrfs file system support, the DiskStation DS220+ 2-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is a compact NAS designed to streamline your data and multimedia management. It features smooth data sharing, video streaming, and photo indexing, as well as well-rounded data protection and recovery options.
