Synology USB Station 2 driveless NAS device
- Easy way to share USB drives across a network
- Comprehensive interface
- Nothing of note
The USB Station 2 is an affordable way to introduce as much or as little network storage into the office or home as you care. It’s not quite as fast as integrated NAS solutions using SATA disks, but ought to be plenty quick enough for most domestic purposes. The USB Station 2 is also relatively easy to configure thanks to Synology’s friendly but powerful DSM 3.0 firmware, and is exceptionally discreet -- both in size, power draw and noise levels.

GGG Evaluation Team
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
