Flawless Service - Very Fast
Bruce F., Newegg

Summary: Highly recommended
Pros: Very Fast - died unexpectedly. Used in RAID 1 w/ WDD Black Caviar drives - Customer Services was Great!!! New unit arrived with credit card for guarantee. Swapping the drives was absolutely painless! I was sweating that part. No last data on drives. Returned bad unit and received notice of CC inf...
Cons: None - Things break - It is what happens when they do that matters.
Summary: I purchased a DS214 and a DS713+ for two of my clients to replace servers. The DS214 has been running for 2+ years without a problem and the DS713+ has been running for 8 months without issue. I really like the fact that the device goes into standby mode when not being used.
Pros: Reliable, affordable, easy to set up, runs applications
Cons: Would like to see more applications written for this device.
Summary: The choices are dizzying, however I decided on this unit for it specs (https://www.synology.com/en-global/products/DS713+). The two bay Western Digital red 4TB mirrored is more than what I need for home use as a home business. Scalability up to 42TB. Easy setup.
Pros: Can't say enough about Synology as this is my second one as an upgrade, Fast, Easy setup, easy upgrade migration between the two different nas's, did not lose one piece of data, love Synology!! Keep up the good work!!
Summary: A couple years back my main system crashed. I played around with the hard drive and was able to get about an hours worth of life back out of it to try and salvage everything I deemed important.
Pros: This NAS is small but very powerful. It has lots of great applications and does a great job organizing photos and streaming movies. It has an easy to use interface and account management is a breeze. You also get a free Synology web address that forwards to your device. So if you are someone like...
Cons: While I love new features and appreciate Synology quickly addressing issues, it seems like once a week there is some kind of patch or upgrade. It is a little over kill. I also wish there was more 3rd party apps available for this device. It has a lot of capability but very few 3rd party apps.
Summary: Upgraded to the DS713+ from my previous DS211j... for its transcoding capabilities, primarily... quite a difference (and no, before you misunderstand, the DS211j does NOT support transcoding .... the 713+ does... transcoding aside, the difference was in features, performance...
Super fast and expandable, best NAS line on the market

Summary: Absolutely the highest quality and easy to manage NAS on the market. I backed up a machine this week at over 150MB/second over Gigabit Ethernet network. The fastest speed of a USB 3.0 speed I've ever seen was 100MB/second, so this is impressive.

Summary: Purchased this with a couple of Seagate 4TB NAS drives and setup as an iSCSI target to a Windows 2008 server for a client with approx. 15 users; works great. Was able to expand the drive capacity of the Windows server for archive files and backups as well as Exchange mailbox databases with good...
Fantastic Box, more than enough features. It just works. Good small business options too.

Summary: Fantastic unit, you can void the warranty and upgrade to 4gb of ram which will help streaming performance. I went with this model because the atom processor allows it to do media encoding on the fly which is good if you plan to stream to your ipad or phone. This is the ram I installed.
