Awesome, but not perfect

jimnet, B&H Photo
23 December 2014
  • Excerpt: The performance of this unit is awesome, and I foud it very useful. I'm only dissapointed with the CloudStation software. It is suppossed to be a "personal cloud" just as DropBox, OneDrive, GoogleDrive or others, but when you install the application it literally eats the entire hard disk space.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Fast

Surveillance Station detailed review

Tim Marks, Amazon
15 September 2014
  • Summary: While I have a DS1512+ in my house for general NAS usage, I am using this DS713+ device solely for the Surveillance Station application deployed in a local fast food restaurant. So, this review will focus specifically on my experience using the Diskstation for a surveillance system.

Worth it for me.

Kelly P., Newegg
3 October 2013
  • Summary: The web interface operates more like an OS compared to the simple webforms you'd see on the cheaper NAS boxes. It also seems a lot more open (you can SSH as root and get the BusyBox prompt v1.16.1)
  • Pros: I'm using this for a UPnP server and it does this function better than my DIY solution. Have streamed media on several different players, I now use it as the standard to beat when benchmarking other media servers.
  • Cons: Expensive, but then again I've spent days trying to get a cheap CentOS box to do the same thing and this took only an hour.

Great Product

Colin M., Newegg
3 August 2013
  • Summary: SATA III would be nice. I would also like to see a three bay NAS.
  • Pros: The product is great.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, customer service is severely lacking. If your problem requires more that restarting the DiskStation, you are out of luck. Their idea of customer service means response by email only. For whatever reason, my DS713+ and Cloud Station has a problem syncing Quickbooks files

  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Processor Could Be Faster

Small footprint with great horse power

Mets, Amazon
18 December 2012
  • Summary: There are only two negatives that I've come across. 1) The unit will only accommodate the single expansion option. Although the 5 additional bays "should" be enough, it would be nice to have an option at something larger or to chain. 2) The "locks" on the bays is laughable.

Solid Enclosure

Biff, Amazon
28 April 2015
  • Summary: Great starter NAS that is perfect for the home user. Looks and feels well built and robust. Easy to set up and operate. Stable in operation and relatively quiet. Rather expensive for an enclose. Recommended.

Powerful NAS that Delivers

Susman "Sussman", Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: Rating: 4.5 This was a pretty easy device to use & setup. The features such as the user interface and the plethora of bundled packages software that are supplied, are some of the best that I have seen and are updated on semi-regular basis.
