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: 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.
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.

Summary: I paired this NAS with Apple TV MC572LL/A (2010) [OLD VERSION ] and Western Digital Caviar Green 3 TB SATA III 64 MB Cache Bare/OEM Desktop Hard Drive - WD30EZRX and created a beast of a home entertainment system!
Summary: Have since returned the DS110j for the larger DS210j with 2 disk support. After trying several all in NAS (WD Home, Seagate GoFlex Home) and becoming utterly frustrated at the poor quality (GARBAGE) design and useless cumbersome OS, I decided to take the plunge with a real diskless NAS.
Summary: I bought this for my office to use as a local backup of our server's virtual disk image. I was a little concerned that this particular model would be slow because of the relatively slower processor speed, but it's been great.
Summary: To be honest, I was a little intimidated by the whole NAS thing. Did I really need one? Will it be complicated? Answers: Yes and not really. First, yes, I did need one. I was debating on the 1 or 2 bay for a long time and then what size HD to get, etc.
Summary: I have been using this since a few weeks before Lion was released, and at that time the OS was Snow Leopard, and the Synology DSM software version was 3.1. I had no issues with it, that was for a couple of weeks of use.
