Discontinued? Come On NewEgg!

Isaak W., Newegg
7 September 2012
  • Summary: Newegg had this item out of stock for months and I was on an email list for when it came back into stock. I got notified on 9-1-12 and quickly pounced on this. I am writing this review on 9-7-12 on now the item shows out-of-stock and discontinued. WOW!
  • Pros: Fantastic expansion. A breeze to add and setup storage on the DS1512+ . I am with the other reviewer that I never thought I would want the extra storage space so quickly! The Synology system is just that awesome. I am glad Newegg got this back in stock even though briefly. See other thoughts.
  • Cons: None (See other thoughts)

May need this sooner than you think

Justin B., Newegg
21 January 2012
  • Summary: I was impressed with the reviews and demos of the DS712+, so I picked one up. After setting 2 3TB drives in RAID, I realized I needed a lot more backup storage. I've now got 5 2 TB drives and the 2 3 TB.
  • Pros: Painless integration into DS712. Low noise, low power consumption. Sturdy Esata connection. Not flimsy, but not huge, it's pretty compact. Synology Hybrid RAID easy to configure drives of different sizes.
  • Cons: Price is on the high side for no smarts, just extension to an existing NAS

Great Product, great service

Scott B., Newegg
29 January 2011
  • Summary: Waiting for new version of DSM (3.1) for dual drive redundancy and multiple volume per raid support. May also play around with iSCSI.
  • Pros: Fast, easy to set up, great functionality, quiet, expandable. Solid construction - this is a super product. I have had a 1511+ for about a month, and just ordered a second with the 510 expansion unit. WD 2TB drives x 10 (final config tbd) mostly for timemachine, iTunes, media and shared storage. ...
  • Cons: Kinda hard to find at this point. Both purchase through Newegg as soon as I saw stock - then out of stock within hours.

Fantastic NAS

Chris B., Newegg
19 January 2011
  • Summary: I love this NAS. When I run out of capacity, I will buy another Synology.
  • Pros: Device is simple to set up, good performance, and *WORKS AS ADVERTISED*. Synology has excellent software, and unlike ever single other device I've used, it works 100%, no quirks/failures/crashes/etc. The documentation is mostly complete, and the administrative interface is nice to use. Performanc...
  • Cons: Haven't really found one yet, which makes me very happy.
