This is a must buy if you want a home media server!!!

Nom De Plume, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • 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. This server runs MANY apps that I also find useful and have downloaded and currently running on my server. everything from a mail server to a web server, and everything in between.

Slick product!!

C. Stone, Amazon
15 March 2012
  • 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. A great solution at a great price, just remember its BYOD (bring your own drive).

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

BusterBayVideo, Amazon
4 March 2012
  • 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 ? I am a webmaster hobbyist, over the years I have authored over 100 different websites. I have always wanted my own personal server just to tinker with and the DS111 is perfect.

Great NAS device for a first-time NAS user

wamaruna, Amazon
31 December 2011
  • 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. So whereas others may use a NAS device for music or video sharing, my interest was to use it as a central repository for image backups. Research suggested that the Synology line was well respected.

easy setup - seamless operation

Avid Listener, Amazon
21 December 2011
  • 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. I've never used linux beyond using an android phone, can't 'root' anything etc.

Every Digital home needs a Diskstation

John K. Russell, Amazon
25 November 2011
  • 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. Combine the Diskstation with a WD TV Live for a great solution to view Photos, Video and Music in multiple rooms.

Wow single best investment i made in a long time

AF, Amazon
21 November 2011
  • 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. Only complaint i have is the camera licenses which need to be purchased since it only comes with 1 free camera license.

Ridiculously good and professional NAS that rivals what I maintain at my work.

Fani, Amazon
7 September 2011
  • 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. After researching for a while, 2 names kept coming up in many sites - Synology and QNAP. After lots of research at Amazon, I went ahead and ordered the Synology DS111 based on some glowing reviews. Thanks to Prime, I got it in under 2 days.

An amazing product for the price

Juan Gonzalez, Amazon
2 August 2011
  • 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.

Super fast NAS for SOHO applications

Larry Bates "Larry Bates", Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: If you need a fast network attached storage device for your home/office this one really shines. Install drive, connect to network, and you can have up to 3TB of storage that will take up to 50MB/sec of data (Jumbo frames required to achieve that speed). Compare that to most NAS devices that top out at 10-20MB/sec.
