backups and audio streaming

Scott.S, Amazon
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. We have tested the backup and with a full backup we can reload and have our system back up and running in under 50 mins.

Great solution

J. Curtis "Dr. John", Amazon
11 August 2012
  • 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. The luxury of having a NAS drive, in addition to the ability to print from anywhere in the network, is a real advantage and simplified the processes. I highly recommend it for chores and external storage.

Works As Advertised

DDA, Amazon
19 April 2012
  • 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. My only complaint is that you have to know that when installing a disk in a diskless unit, you first have to install the given software, download the proper file for the software to image onto the drive, and then the unit will work.

Media Center GIANT!

Jon Atwood "Computer Geek and loving owner of..., Amazon
15 March 2012
  • 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! Synology even has great iPhone apps for accessing your data from the NAS HIGHLY recommended!

Set it up and forget it

C. Stone, Amazon
20 February 2012
  • Summary: Unit works great, easy to set up and very intuitive interface. I installed a Seagate 2TB SATA drive, and the unit is very quiet and runs very cool. Just what I needed for my home network.

Excellent

B. Haase, Amazon
20 February 2012
  • 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. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! Quality is solid, OS is intuitive and well designed.

Why did I wait so long to get one?

BRKLYN, Amazon
20 November 2011
  • 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. I decided that the single bay w/ 1TB inside would be fine and I picked up a WD Caviar Black. If I could start over & had the $ to do it, I would have gone 2 or 4 Bay with at least 2TB or storage + RAID backup.

Works well with time machine on OS X Lion!

M. Pise, Amazon
8 October 2011
  • 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. Then Lion arrived and I upgraded to it, and I also upgraded the Synology DSM software to 3.2 beta, since that was required to enable compatibility with time machine in Lion.

The best purchase Made So Far on Amazon

rgabb, Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: I must say that of all the things I have purchased on Amazon so far this is the best. Synology has way exceeded my expectations with this starter server. This mini home server features a very stable hardware and software design. It has tons of features built into the OS and has been a great tool for both my business and my home. From a business perspective I only use it to backup my files. I own a 3d animation company in NY and the files are worth thousands of dollars.

Excellent product! Extremly happy with this product!

Mr. Digital, Amazon
31 July 2011
  • Summary: This is an easy to use, great NAS server. I'm a computer technician and I generally like to find all the pros and cons in the product that I purchase. In this review, I'll break it down into different key points/sections. Quick Facts: The server can be used as an offline server; meaning that it does not need to be connected to the internet and be used through another company/service. Western Digital uses Mionet for accessing their NAS servers.
