DS416j

Dual-core CPU with an hardware encryption engine

Equipped with a dual-core CPU, DS416j delivers average reading speed over 112.82 MB/sec and writing over 101.2 MB/sec under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment, a 37.33% increase on writing speed compared to its predecessor.

Support for USB 3.0 offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meaning it takes less time to transfer data to external hard drives, while also consuming less power.

Thoughtful four-level brightness control for front LEDs

Equipped with flexible LED indicators, DS416j’s front LEDs can provide comfortable brightness by controlling and scheduling its four-stage brightness, letting you flexibly decide the intensity of the front LEDs according to environment needs.
