It's useless, actually worse than useless.

JF, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • 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.

NOT Gigabit!

Anonymous, Newegg
1 August 2010
  • Summary: Bottom line, great feature set, but transfer speeds kill the deal. It's no faster than a USB 2.0 external hard drive. Waste of time and money. Returning. I just don't get the rave that this product is getting here on newegg.
  • Pros: Feature set, great web management.
  • Cons: My last review gave this 3 eggs because it requires you to format your hard drives before use which takes hours on end. It also requires custom software to do the initial install, which is also lame. I was going to return it right away, but it was the weekend and I had time to move 700GB+ of data...

Nice idea but flakey execution

MGMcd, Amazon

  • 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.

Compatibility problem Intel Mac 10.6

3, Amazon
12 July 2010
  • Summary: Caution if you have a Intel IMac running Snow Leopard 10.6. Software does NOT work. I downloaded the latest version off of the Synology website and it still does NOT work. After looking in Synology discussion groups, it was apparent that there is a big problem with compatibility. Too late.

so far the product is a bust

  • Summary: I ordered the product and have had nothing but problems with it. I even returned the original because that came with the wrong power cord and it did not connect to my home network at all.
