Works as advertised and then some

Asbjorn Melo, Amazon
22 November 2013
  • Summary: This device works as advertised. The management software that comes with the package is easy to use and this system was easy to set up. Two WIN devices are backing up to it as well as a MacBook. Since one of the WIN devices are a SurfacePro, I am looking into access from outside my home network.

A nice interface to a lot of functionality, great for intermediate users

Cultural ghost, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: The hardware is nice (installing a hard disk is easy), but you are really paying for the pre-configured software and interface. Tech-inclined users know that a typical Linux installation has a trove of features, but setting them up and accessing them requires learning, if not outright stubborn...

  • Summary: My firs NAS, I'm using it to back up 2 iMacs. One iMac is using Time Machine over wifi which is a bit slow, and I can't access the files directly, the backup shows up as a Sparse bundle.

Great Entry Level NAS

Mike P "technology addict", Amazon
15 May 2013
  • 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.

Pretty Sweet NAS

  • Summary: This is my first NAS, but so far I really like it. Setup was a snap. The user interface is very easy to use. I primarily use it as a backup drive and to store my ripped movies to stream to my HDTV.

Zak at Tulip, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: This is a great product. It works as described. Installation had some minor glitches as they don't describe the steps very well but was able to figure out . They should also ask to check for OS update's when starting the installation instead of waiting for the whole process to be compleated then...

Beautifully built, easy to set up and maintain

G. Wilson "oufc_gav1986", Amazon
5 July 2014
  • 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...

Good little addition to my networked world

camping bell, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • 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...
