BEWARE OF SYNOLOGY

Corey S., Newegg
20 April 2011
  • Summary: BUY A DIFFERENT NAS STATION! These guys rip you off..NO WARRANTY SUPPORT!
  • Pros: Good Setup
  • Cons: Synology Support is horrible. You can't get through half of the time and just get hung up on, no waiting in a q or anything. Once you do get through you usually speak to someone that is very hard to understand if you speak english because they are from some foreign country. They rely too heavily ...

Not what the reviews say it is... by a long shot

Nixit D., Newegg
2 January 2011
  • Summary: - All I want to do is have a file server that I can share files on other windows based PCs. I got one to work out of three. Two are hard wired through a 24port 1gbt switch, one is wireless. - All I want to do is stream audio files...
  • Pros: It might eventually allow you to access files across your home network. Some computers will, other will not. Even at that, they wont always be accessible. It can sometimes stream media to a UPnP DMA player. Then again, not always. It cannot stream media over the internet like it claims. 6 months ...
  • Cons: Everything is a Con with this unit. I've been battling every possible simple task possible and it's been an absolute nightmare. Expect to spend countless evenings poking through synologys endless and confusing forums to try and figure out the simplest task. Do not expect answers on their forums. ...

Underpowered

Jason F., Newegg
13 November 2010
  • Summary: I also have owned a synology CS407 NAS device in the past, and I think that might have been better than this DS410J.
  • Pros: Cheap NAS device; Plenty of features; runs net-SNMP, which means it can be remotely monitored without TOO much configuration.
  • Cons: I have two big complaints with this device thus far. First, when I connected the system to my LAN, I ran the setup program that comes on the installation CD. It was unable to format the system drive twice, and disconnected one other time. This was nothing that a little persistence wasn't able to ...

More than just a perfect RAID server.

Mike L., Newegg
26 October 2010
  • Pros: Small, quiet, excellent build quality, gigabit/jumbo support, fairly fast (25MB/s Up & 50MB/s Down) and a full software suite that does anything you want to do. Supports Win7 offline files.
  • Cons: Only hiccup is when you upload 10,000 photos.. it builds thumbnails for the next 3 days consuming it's CPU. Default should be off. The unit still functions but speed is a little compromised.

Great Little Device!

Joel D., Newegg
19 October 2010
  • Summary: Smaller than I thought. It is about the size of a toaster. Its not going to win any beauty awards but it is just a cool little thing, friendly looking kinda like R2-D2....
  • Pros: The price is right. It has a lot of capability. Whether you are an administrator or basic user, it pretty much covers the whole range. Things are really easy to implement and there are numerous little features, nooks, and crannies to enable and explore on this device. You can even go in through t...
  • Cons: I haven't run into any yet. The only thing is its doing a lot of "thinking"/read-write to the RAID after a software update, but.... I think its just adjusting :)

Great until Sw upgrade

Robert M., Newegg
10 October 2010
  • Pros: haven;t used it too much given the problem I'm having with it.
  • Cons: had version 2.x software and it seemed to work fine. Upgraded to the latest v3.0-1337 and internal web server will not connect Synology support had been less than helpful.

Seems Fine

Kenneth H., Newegg
1 October 2010
  • Summary: Some reviews state that it took hours to set up and format the unit. Populated with four (4) 1TB Samsung F3 SATA HDs, running through a Gigabit LAN, it took me 17 minutes to install the DSM software, access the unit, set name, admin password, date, time, network preferences and format the drives for...
  • Pros: Good support from manufacturer's site, solid reputation, reasonably priced, smaller than one would expect for the capacity and layout, well packaged, comes with everything you need to set it up - excluding the hard drives, of course. Simple, fast set-up.
  • Cons: While not precisely a con as such, I wish that this unit offered upgradeable RAM - capacity or speed, either way. 128MB is OK, but with more and/or faster ram (and a better processor - see Other Thoughts), it would be downright wicked.

So far so good

WILLIAM F., Newegg
24 September 2010
  • Summary: I am setting it up with 4 1TB (WD Caviar Blue WD10EALS) and the initial volume creating with bad sector test will take like 5-6 hours (Status:Creating (Checking parity consistency. 45.69%) after 3hr 39min).
  • Pros: + Fast shipping by Newegg (as usual) - Thank you! + Easy drive install - the unit comes with four trays which you slide the drives into and secure with 4 screws and then the trays simply slide in and the SATA and power connectors mate to the back-plane. + Easy software setup - put in the CD and f...
  • Cons: + only one issue so far and it was minor. one of the first steps in the software setup is to select the .PAT file image from the CD to be loaded based on NAS model and it took a few tried for the browse file selection to take. I would select and when I clicked Next it would clear the field and I ...
