1 Bay Okay

Martin Batten, Amazon
9 June 2011
  • 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.

Best home NAS on the market w/ small issue

Martinjm, Amazon
22 May 2011
  • 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.

Great home/small business server replacement

Aaron Gillum, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • 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.

As a media server, this NAS is excellent

G. Boutros, Amazon
17 March 2011
  • 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.

Great product but has one networking issue

roger, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • 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.

Super !

clem, Amazon

  • 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).

Très bon rapport qualité / prix

sremi, Amazon
4 May 2011
  • 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. Pour ma part je m'en sers comme serveur de photos accessible par internet. Utilisation depuis longtemps, sans aucun souci technique ou fonctionnel.
