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.

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.

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 ?

Simple AND Amazing

Lloyd G., Newegg
11 February 2012
  • Pros: using it as an NAS for a Samsung 2TB drive. Works like a dream, super quiet, super speedy. Extremely easy HD install, excellent operating system software. Do not hesitate.
  • Cons: It can do so much more than simple NAS, it's easy to get confused, the actual owner's manual is some 160 pages. Wouldn't hurt to have some simplified language sections for posers such as myself. Just a thought.

Fantastic Product - Rock Solid NAS - Worth the Price

Marc D., Newegg
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Redundant backup options are available too--connect a USB or PCI-e hard drive and make sure your important business data, or photo/video memories, are doubly protected with a copy you can move off-site, or into a fire safe. Especially good for rotating secondary backup backup drives.
  • Pros: One of the easiest NAS products to have up and running with very little effort, and in a short amount of time--including firmware and DiskStation Manager 3.2 control panel software upgrades. Extremely easy to manage--literally set it and forget it. It just works. Reliability and dependability (no...
  • Cons: Honestly, I can't name any.

Synology NAS are amazing!

Stephen G., Newegg
24 January 2012
  • Pros: Performance and features are amazing. About 18 months ago we purchased two Synology NAS at work for backup purposes, and found them to be speedy, solid, and easy to use. My Buffalo NAS died at home, and I replaced it with the DS111. What a difference! I need it primarily as a file sharing/backup ...
  • Cons: Not a thing.

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.

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.
