  • The DS720+ provides two built-in M.2 SSD slots so that you can take full advantage of Synology SSD Cache functionality. Add SSD cache for up to 20 times faster I/O response without using front drive bays. You can add five more drives with Synology DX517 to expand storage capacity.
  • Synology Drive provides a built-in universal portal to access your data anytime and anywhere and synchronize all your files across platforms, including Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS.


  • Lacks 2.5GbE LAN Ports
  • USB limited to Gen 1
  • The external drive uses eSATA


It looks new, has a better CPU, and now has NVMe caching, but without an upgrade to the LAN connections, the extra performance is hard to exploit.
