Amazing Product - Does everything it says and much more...

  • Summary: This is one of the best investments i have ever made... I can't recommend it enough.. It's my Family Cloud (I am in love with the CouldStation app - We use it to (securely) sync our data on all our PCs/Laptops/Android phones/Tabs) It's my [Plex] media server (all my pictures/Videos/Movies/Music are hosted here). It's my FTP server (hosts all my images/videos coming in from my remote surveillance cameras) It's my Torrent server..

Underpowered -- too slow

rqbanerjee "rqb", Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: I was very happy with this NAS for a while until the Disk Station Manager 5.0 update came out. I also have a ds212j at another house that i'm more satisfied with. This NAS now takes forever to perform simple operations after the DSM 5.0 (The GUI, the management interface for the nas) was installed. Clicking control panel takes 10+ seconds to load. Logging in takes 7-8 seconds. These are both on the LAN so latency is not a problem.

Perfect for a replication target from your primary Synology

  • Summary: I have a DS114 setup at the office as a file server. I use this device (w/ a 4TB WDD) as a replication target using the Synology "Shared Folder Sync" option and it works well. If any disaster strikes, I can simply grab this device and take it into the office and be back up and running much quicker than restoring data.

Best Quality Home NAS

ExE122, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Synology is definitely the way to go when setting up a NAS for personal use. I've used a couple different brands over the years and found that Synology is the best quality for the price. This is the second Synology NAS I have purchased (I also have a DS214 2-Bay). I set this one up with a 1TB Western Digital NAS drive. There is a setup wizard for simple installation. I work in IT so I did some advanced setup as well, such as user accounts and quotas.

I can't say enough good things about my Synology that would trump any other ...

jaredc, Amazon

  • Summary: I can't say enough good things about my Synology that would trump any other positive reviews out there. Backups are easy, file management is easy, the additional services like the Surveillance Station, music/photo/video streaming, Amazon Glacier backups, and then some all make it a priceless NAS considering the importance of preserving home memories these days. It used to be that we keep pictures in a box and hope they don't discolor in the attic.

Works for Timemachine

Scott, B&H Photo
8 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this to backup 2 MacBooks with Timemachine. Installed a WD Red hard drive and installed Synology OS in about 45 min. After using this for one week the Timemachine backups are working over Wi-Fi with the NAS connect to the router. Just a note with set-up for Timemachine backups. Set up just one Timemachine folder regardless of the number of Mac's backing up. Each Mac will automatically create its own folder in the Timemachine folder.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Set Up, Highly Compatible

Synology NAS DS112j

cybermil, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: great NAS unit. I use the web services and remote file access. Both have worked perfectly for 2 months. Security setup for the web services is easy if your a linux guru (which I am) but I think if you don't know about Apache and .htaccess files, it will be a steep learning curve. This NAS has just about everything for everyone, but no need to feel you need to use all of it. Just use what works for you.

Best backup solution for small office, even better with latest DSM upgrades

Kemyst, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I have been moderately happy with my Synology diskstations for about 2 years. I have 2 of these that sync across my home network to back each other up. Setup is simple, adding extra functionality such as remote access VPN server, Dynamic DNS is incredibly easy. However, the cloud capabilities were lacking. I have used Amazon S3 offsite backup (expensive, but fast) and Glacier (slow & unreliable) for about 1 year.
