Summary: I have had this now for probably over 3 years. It has been 100% rock solid. The only down time I had was when I moved and had to relocate it to it's new home. But make sure you keep this on a UPS. Power problems can kill drives.
Great purchase, would recommend if you are looking for a starter NAS

Summary: Great NAS. I have had this running for quite a while and it hasn't failed on me one time. I host a bit of video and audio on the web server portion and haven't been disappointed yet. If only I had 10 of these that were as reliable lol
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: I've been looking for a home file and media server, and this Synology unit looked like it would fill the bill. It configured easily and was nicely Macintosh compatible. I quickly had it up and running as a file server. Unfortunately, it could be rather sluggish.
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: I use it as a network storage. It works good so far. When I first installed the system, I enabled all the web services (web station, photo station, ftp, download station, etc.) When I ftp myself, I could see all of my private folders after hitting a couple of //, a bit scary.
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.
