Synology DiskStation DS213air

Synology's NAS enclosures have supported add-on USB Wifi dongles for a while, but the 2-bay DS213air is the company's first model with integrated wireless. It's aimed mainly at consumers, and has a couple of novel features, such as the ability to work as a wireless access point or wireless router. It's not a particularly powerful unit, as you can see from my results below, but it does have the convenience factor and Synology's excellent DSM software.
For more details, see my article over on ZDNet UK's First Take blog or my review on Computeractive.

It uses a mini-PCIe card on the motherboard for Wifi

DiskMark score over Wifi at 1m is not particularly impressive

DiskMark score over Ethernet is a bit better
