Great purchase, would recommend if you are looking for a starter NAS

Steven M. Wall "Videofile", Amazon
10 November 2013
  • 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.

Great product - does all it claims and more

John Dipanni "Computer Wiz", Amazon
4 December 2010
  • 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 a Windows server. The remote access to files is also very simple to configure and works well - again, for simple uses.

Great home server; careful with 2.5" drives

ADAM J CERMAK, Amazon
17 November 2010
  • 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. You need to get them directly from Synology (synologyusastore dot com), and be careful which of the three you order.

Great Little NAS

DavidB, Amazon
28 October 2010
  • Summary: I rate this item as 5 stars not because it's the best performing NAS out there, but because it represents so much value. At a fraction of the cost, you get most of the value that other solutions provide. When I first started researching NAS options, I was wavering between QNAP and Synology NAS boxes in the $800-$1000 range.

Perfect NAS

Some Guy, Amazon
28 October 2010
  • Summary: This is my first NAS. After years of using homebrew NAS solutions (comprised mostly of older computer components), I finally decided to just get a NAS. I wanted a place on my network to dump files from multiple clients (linux, OSX, and windows) that was low power, low cost, and could share my printer.

Awesome

Nautonnier, Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: I wanted a NAS so I could listen to music and watch videos from various computers and my PS3 without having to turn on a specific computer. I had bought a Cirago usb nas and was supremely disappointed with it. After deciding to ante up more money for something in a higher class and doing some research I bought this and it was worth it. I'm not going to re-document all the features here as some of the other reviews do that better then I could.

Very Smooth Operator

R. Schmidt "Run. Drum. Write. Climb.", Amazon
22 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this along with two 1.5 TB WD hard drives. Everything has gone ultra smoothly. Now, I am not one of these people who starts unpacking everything, paper and packing materials flying, like Christmas. I read the setup instructions, review the online manual, and then get started, slowly and carefully. Assembly was easy. Setup was easy; there was nothing mystifying. The device was on my network in no time, and seen by the other four machines on the net.

Great Personal NAS

Charles Gelb, Amazon
18 September 2010
  • Summary: I don't have that much experience with a NAS in the past but I always liked the idea of being able to access all my files from anywhere and feel safe about the security. This NAS allows you to set things up however you want it. You can encrypt certain folders within the NAS for additional protection. The audio station is great, you can stream music to any computer, anywhere you are. The server is pretty fast and runs smoothly.

More than I expected.

AWBoater, Amazon
9 September 2010
  • 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. When I researched which low-cost NAS to buy, Synology kept coming up as the one to get, and I am glad I did. Synology has many NAS offerings, from the low-end DS210j model I bought, all the way up to enterprise rack-mounted systems.
