Some trouble to start and then OK

Summary: I can't vouch for any of the other features but the performance is very good in NFS mode. That reliable and fast.
Pros: Relatively easy setup especially compared to open source solutions I have tried like openfiler. Faster than I hoped for but that may depend on the disk drive you are using more than the box. I am using Samsung HD204UI Satisfactory email support
Cons: I am using the device to backup a VMWare virtual machine hypervisor running 8 relatively small VMs for a total of about 350GB. The backup script will copy over 4 nights worth of backup data and then remove the oldest version and replace with the latest. But the backups were failing and the DSM so...
Summary: I have tried three NAS drives over time, and been consistently disappointed. I bought this one because I read good of Synology, but did not want to invest a huge amount given the history. This one is a little more difficult to set up. I put in 2TB drive and attached a 2TB USB.
Summary: I bought the Synology DS111 after doing months of research to find the best home NAS. After a couple weeks I have been very pleased. It is fast, super quiet, it was unbelievably easy to drop in the HD (I used a 2 TB WD Caviar Black WD2002FAEX), plug it in, and be up and running in a very short time.
Summary: We have found that, as a media server, this NAS (DS111) has comprehensive support for every type of file format that we tried, including MKV video files. It can be a little complicated to set up the different shared folder permissions.
Summary: Initially, I was reluctant to purchase another "inexpensive" NAS device, as the previous purchase I made for one years ago (still PATA interfaced) provided a very slow I/O device that had no robust feature set, and a very proprietary disk configuration.
Summary: The product looks nice and sturdy. Harddisk and operating system installation is easy. File transfer, bittorrent download, and media server are the applications I tried. They are very practical and useful. Movies are played perfectly, streaming to my laptop or tv.
Summary: N'est pas le "dernier sorti" mais permet de bénéficier des mises à jour régulières (supporte DSM 5.x, c'est à dire la version la plus récente de son système d'exploitation) Offre pas mal de fonctionnalités pour un prix modéré.
Summary: Complètement satisfait de ce petit NAS ! Premier achat de ce genre de produit donc un peu craintif sur la mise en marche. Mais tout fonctionne du premier coup ! L'interface est très facile à utiliser et permet de faire les réglage facilement. Mac, PC, smartphone ont tout de suite reconnu le NAS.
