I LOVE Synology Products

Summary: Again, I love my 112j and it does everything I want it to. I just wish I knew what I've learned over the year of the abilities of these NAS devices and purchased a unit with a lot more RAM and a stronger CPU.
Pros: This was a very tough decision for me to NOT give a 5/5 Egg Rating. But if by giving it a 4/5 Egg Rating makes someone look at why instead of glancing past a 5/5. This version does not come with its own HDD but that's what you would want anyway regardless which system you purchase because you wou...
Cons: Now, the reason I gave a 4 is because if you're going to use these units as I do and I think the new "goldrush" form of media storage is this. This unit has worked better than I expected nor imagined being affordable technologically available to the masses. So if you're going to use your "HomeSta...
Summary: I'm enjoying this NAS. The hardware install was simple. The software install wasn't as simple but was fairly intuitive. You install the Synology DiskStation OS via a CD from a networked computer. From there it isn't as clear what you need to do but it doesn't take much to figure it out.
Summary: Fabulous network storage and server device. Beautifully built, easy to set up and maintain. Full of features, and the Synology OS is well maintained and developed. The one small point - and I did buy a low end model I know - is that the processor/memory cannot really cope with creating a large photo...
Took a while to set up but stick with it and it'll pay dividends

Summary: OK, so I'm fairly good with IT things - I love gadgets. But setting this up was a challenge - but only because of things I didn't know about ports and IP addresses (static versus dynamic). However, once past all of the challenges, this thing is very powerful.
Summary: I bought this Synology DS112J NAS "shell" to replace my old Buffalo LinkStation at home. All I needed was a NAS but this Synology box is much more than that. It offers lots of free installable extras, such as mail server, VPN server, web server, etc..
Summary: Putting the nas together is straightforward, however connecting it up to my mac mini has proved awkward and it is not recognisable on my ssyetm yet. It is plugged into a new BT router so you would hink it is all sweetness and light but it is blinking orange whic is not a good sign.
Summary: At the moment I have given it a 4* rating, not because it isn't worth 5, but because I have yet to fully explore its features. Why I bought it: I use mac, my wife uses Windows. We need to share media - photos/music/documents Backing up our PC's Access to all my media on the fly - i travel a lot with...
Summary: I decided to write a review of the DS112J for two reasons: the first was to reinforce the overall view that this is a good product, but in my opinion is overshadowed by its better big brother: Synology DS212J 2 Bay NAS Enclosure.
Summary: Deux disques d'un terra, installation sans probleme. Reconnaissance par le reseau OK. Systeme "ouvert" : on peut changer de disque soi meme. J'ai abandonné LaCie car il est impossible de changer de disque soi meme : retour fabricant obligatoire pour passer mon big disk de 1 à 2 To....
