backups and audio streaming
10 October 2013
Summary: My work place bought this product to do some testing with for backups. We were so happy with it that we ended up buying 3 more. It is very easy to setup, easy to setup the backup, we even use one to do streaming of audio for the phone system.
Summary: Running 24/7 with a WD Green 2TB drive, not one hitch or issue. Very quiet in my network closet, can't even hear drive spinning with NAS against my ear.
Pros: Great little NAS for home use- easy to use, easy to update, simple to setup. I bought to host and backup data on my home network and haven't been let down. NAS has been in operation 24/7 for over 2 years without failure or issue. Updating software is a breeze and never had issue with data loss. M...
Cons: First connection is always a bit slow, but very good transfer rates and responsiveness afterwards. Pretty common on almost any remote access component.
Summary: We have so many files and computers here it quickly became apparent to set up a central place to back up files and other important things. We picked up a TB HDD and the station to connect it to the local network and found it was easy to install and initialize.
Pros: Very simple to install. Took me less than a minute to get my drive installed. Took <10 to have it formatted and up and running on my network. Transfer speeds are good. Was able to open up firewall and activate media sharing. Can now stream to my PS3, smart TV, and LG Blu-ray player with no issues...
Summary: This is a great NAS system. I am new to NAS storage systems and i read a bunch of reviews and read that you couldn't really go wrong with this setup. To install the hard drive was a snap and setup was extremely easy (go to the Synology website and they list compatible hard drives).
Summary: If you want a NAS for under $200, buy this now! I installed this for a small architecture firm in my building and they are thrilled with it. It only took me about 30 minutes from unboxing to having it completely installed with the FTP server up and running.
Pros: Great connectivity options either local or web based. Included GUI is slick and easy to navigate. Permissions are well thought out and easy to setup. Supports up to 2tb drives.
Summary: I've purchased two of these units for family members to set up a NAS for them. In each case the setup was relatively easy and the units are humming along. One for about a year and a half or so, one for less time.
