Inside, you'll find the dual-core Intel Celeron J4025, capable of boosting up to 2.9GHz. This little processor is capable of handling some 4K transcoding, making the DS220+ a good option for a starter Plex NAS too! The 2GB of DDR4 RAM is plenty for a two-bay NAS, but it can also be upgraded to 6GB.
There are two 1Gb LAN ports with link aggregation support for enhanced network bandwidth, and the Synology DiskStation Manager OS will have you up and running in no time at all. Honestly, if you're wanting the best Prime Day deal on the best NAS, this is it.
