Synology DS112J- Economy NAS for the home user

Michael R., Newegg
29 July 2013
  • Pros: Price is excellent for what you receive. Works well with the newer Seagate 4 TB NAS drives. Synology Disk Manager software is the best NAS software I have used. Pretty much idiot proof. Nice sturdy housing with adequate ventilation to keep the enclosed drive cool. Very good warranty from Synology
  • Cons: None that I have found so far. Have been using it for well over a month with no issues. Tech help from Synology is first rate.

Excellent Value and Great Operation - a few caveats

Thomas C., Newegg
14 May 2013
  • Pros: Tons of functionality for the price, very power efficient, reliable and predictable software and hardware operation. Very slick and easy to use GUI available from any machine using the internet. Can access the actual OS using terminal connectivity (looks like LINUX). Great User Account controls. Great add on functionality which is all free through Synology. Cloud is easy to setup and keeps multiple machines in synch effortlessly. Android and Apple apps - wrok great an...
  • Cons: Documentation is a bit useless - it sort of tells you everything you can get from the interface and the messages issued by the GUI but often does not go into details about what happens when certain selections are made.

Fantastic!

Richard S., Newegg
8 April 2013
  • Pros: 1.Easy Physical setup-Snap in HD and ready to go.
  • Cons: 1.Better consolidation of settings and applications would be nice. example: the the privilege settings can get confusing as far as setting up, they are kind of all over the place. But by playing around with it-you get it down.

WOW, Easy to Setup

Anonymous, Newegg
18 May 2012
  • Pros: This is my 1st NAS, for about 3 years I've been looking but didnt like what i was seeing on till I came to some Synology reviews. So i want to be cheap & i took a chance, I must say I am very please how easy it was to setup. it runs cool and quiet. Easy to use interface you can try out a demo on Synology's website.
  • Cons: After leaving it on for 3 days i got a error when trying to access my files, but a quick restart from DSM resolve my issue, no biggie. havent had a problem since then.

Wonderful NAS

Anonymous, Newegg
25 April 2012
  • Summary: NAS boxes are still for the tech inclined. Through no fault of their own, some applications (Windows 7 w/ webDAV, router port forwarding), is not yet mainstream. If you are looking for "plug and play" get an external hard drive.
  • Pros: Synology consistently impresses me with their NAS boxes, of which I have had experience with 3 so far. What makes their implementation different from other NAS providers is their software. Most companies package a new software with each hardware revision. Synology continually develops their DSM (version 4.0 of this writing) to work behind each of their NAS boxes.
  • Cons: The smartphone applications need some reworking, however I have yet to find an Android application that is not updated fairly regularly.

  • Summary: This was purchased as a storage for my music files to be streamed to a Sonos Play:5. Well what a fantastic piece of kit, setup was a breeze and with 1Tb I also now store photos and some files on the drive.

Excellent product

Allan, Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: For this price the best unit on the market. But maybe in hindsight I needed the one above this with the better CPU as sometimes while streaming HD content I can max it out.

Very reliable and fast

Maximus, Amazon
27 July 2013
  • Summary: I’m very happy with this product. The DSM (management) software is super, the hardware performs very good. It’s a reliable and fast device. I would recommend it to everyone! Before I bought this nas I had the Dlink dns320. I was really not satisfied about the Dlink dns320. I returned the Dlink nas and bought this Synology DS112j and I tell you the difference between those 2 devices is black and white. Spend a little more money on your nas and bye this device.
