Summary: This is a must buy if you want a home network server. I purchased this to serve all my TV shows and movies in my house. I dropped a 1tb drive in and away I went. I can now access my shows and movies from any room in my house, just by connecting to the network.
Summary: Very easy to set up and very robust. Took a while to figure out all the features and apps as the manual seems written for more experienced networking/NAS users. I use it to share files across my home network and also as a streaming server to my Droid phone via the Synology app.
Summary: I guess I could some up my review of the DiskStation DS111 as simply awesome. I had the NAS up and running in under 20 minutes, this included installing the HD Drive. I plugged in my FreeAgent External drive and I was instantly viewing the files on my PC. Did I say the DS111 was awesome ?
Summary: I am not a tech geek, just a business person who needs centralized storage. We are a MAC office with some occasional PC visitors. The product works well, set up not really that easy to if you have never configured a server before.
Summary: Although I consider myself an expert PC user, I had never dealt with network attached storage. I have five PCs at home and grew weary of schlepping an external hard drive around from one machine to the next to do periodic image backups.
Summary: First of all, a disclaimer that I'm no network engineer and I'm sure I don't appreciate a tenth of the flexibility of the diskstation. I'm usually the techie that friends ask to fix things but I immediately head to the internet to find out how it's done.
Summary: The DS111 is my third Diskstation, DS107, DS109 and DS111. The DS212+ is now on my wish list. All Three work great, Synology provides regular updates that continue to improve the product and add additional features. Synology even released an update for the DS107 to make it OSX Lion Compatible.
Summary: What can i say about this product. It is fantastic and works as advertised. Synology does keep up to date updates and this is one of the faster 1 bay models there is. I have been running this since day one and not a single problem.
Ridiculously good and professional NAS that rivals what I maintain at my work.

Summary: I was using my Linux desktop as my NAS, FTPS and other misc. services server for a while and I was always looking for a personal NAS to cut down on power reqs and really to have a dedicated NAS unit for my centralized storage needs.
Summary: The Synology disk station is well worth the money. For a bit over 200 dollars this device allows you to host your own websites, access your media remotely, even host your own mail server, all at a reasonable speed. This is an amazing device for the price.
