Summary: This Nas is perfect for sharing your home stuffs. I don't have any windows machine and Works fine with MAC OS X ! Pros: excelent construction, quiet, fast for sharing, gigabit interface, nice and easy web interface, torrent client very fast and easy, share 2 USB storage more ! network time machine. Cons: Need more software for mac OS, the qMobile for iphone don't work for me. DLNA server need a more intuitive interface but works very fine sharing and share 1080p films.
Summary: Excelente producto, funcionando desde hace mucho tiempo... un poco lento al iniciar pero del resto ok, lo unico que no he podido es hacer que la multifuncional conectada a este funcione como escaner.
Good performance, nice features, but still learning the ropes

Summary: So far a great product - quiet, low power, small. I bought two 1 TB drives; plenty of storage for a music server. I love the fact that it can be accessed remotely from any internet connection. I am using it with the iPad app and as a music server for my home theater; the app seems to be fairly intuitive, though it won't stream full length dvd's I've loaded onto the NAS - I believe the limit for streaming is 2 GB file size.
Summary: The hardware and software need a lot more polish. The unit is just not stable enough to set it and forget it. The hardware is too loud, the software is too buggy and convoluted. I had problems with the admin password resetting after each shutdown or restart. The unit would also freeze after a week or so of use. I ended up stop using the NAS after 4 months because I wanted something to simplify my life instead of complicating it.
Summary: This is a great server with many bells and whistles. Some knowledge is helpful when utilizing all of the features. Great speed and server capabilities. UPDATE: I had this as a five star server. When it worksm, it is. Mine broke after a firmware update. That was 3 weeks ago and I still have no server. I was told it would take 4 days. Now, I was told they don't have the parts and it will be a few days. WHen asked how long this might take, like weeks, there was no answer.
Summary: After a lot of research, I bought the Synology 110j about 6 months ago. The reason was it had the best combination of feature set, price and customer reviews. I only selected the one bay version because I think I have to do the backup anyhow. So I set up the synology as my main storage, and I back it up to a dedicated USB hard drive every month, to ensure no big disaster happens. Before, my pictures, videos and documents scattered around 4 PCs in my house.
Summary: This is a joy to use. It's multi-purpose, easy to set up, very low energy consumption. Ok, maybe it's not as fast as a speeding bullet- then, what NAS is. But if you want a flexible, relatively inexpensive, easy to use home server, then go now and get one. Cuodos to QNAP. Sweet.
