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. It is fast, and appears reliable so far. I will let you know in a couple of months.
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. It took a couple hours using the direct USB copy function to move 500 GB of data from my other USB drive to the Diskstation.
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. I have been using the DS-111 the past few days to see what it's made of, and it hasn't disappointed. Embedded Software- The Synology DS-111 runs it's own operating environment, called DSM.
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. The documentation doesn't always help, and could use a little re-writing. It often uselessly states only the rediculously obvious rather than give some directions as to a setting's use.
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. Management using the web interface is easy and straightforward. One thing I haven't succeeded to do is using dynamic dns and connect to the NAS from the internet.

Summary: Produit de rapport qualité prix impressionnant, il est silencieux, performant et facile à mettre en service. Le pannel synology rend facile sa configuration. Je recommande ce produit pour les personnes désirand un NAS efficace à cout très raisonnable.
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. Les films sont fluides sur la télé (par la Freebox).
