Summary: This machine has essentially rendered my Mac useless -- the drive continually runs on end, and while it's running it's impossible to retrieve or write any data to it. When I mean constantly, its been spinning for about 6 hours now -- without stopping.
Summary: This is my third DS210j and my fourth Synology product. I am an IT professional and recommend/install these for home office/small business office users. For customers that need data protection through mirrored RAID drive and just have basic file sharing needs, this is a great low cost alternative to...
Summary: The Synology DS210j is, like the DS410 we have at work, easy, inexpensive, and runs like a top. Beware, though: if you are going to fit it with 2.5" HDDs, like I did, the disk holders are sold SEPARATELY, and Amazon (and, as far as I could tell, all of Synology's resellers) doesn't stock them.
Summary: I was looking for a NAS device to store home movies off of my Sony camcorder as well as place photos, documents, music on it for backup. I run a Mac and Windows PC's and I have Time Capsule for my Mac and it works great but no redundancy for it.
Summary: I'm really happy with this product. In the past, I've had a dedicated PC running Linux for home server use, after that hardware died, I started looking for a replacement. My search criteria included the need for Subversion, file sharing, and simple web server.
Summary: I was looking for a NAS because I have a lot of music and videos, and just running out of room on my laptop to keep them all. And I wanted a backup location for them - and even burning to DVDs is getting to be out of the question.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I am a computer technician by trade. This should have been a nice web-based photo sharing solution, but it was slow (low RAM, I know) and eventually started kicking out hard drives, and then stopped working altogether. Couldn't get to the admin page.
Summary: I purchased this primarily to use as a server for Squeezebox products, so that my PC does not need to be on all the time. There is a version of squeezecenter for the Synology box, and it runs OK for the most part, but I have had a lot of trouble getting reliable access to Pandora via the box.
Summary: Excellent produit. Facile d'installation pour un pseudo novice comme moi. Il manque cependant une prise eSATA pour être vraiment parfait. Du reste attention au choix des disques, notamment Western Digital Green; je dois maintenant mettre à jour les firmware car j'observe des docking des têtes de...
