Summary: The DiskStation DS1511+ is arguably the best five-bay NAS server on the market for both home and office environments. Novice and home users, however, might be intimidated by its setup software and the number of features it has to offer.
Pros: The Synology DiskStation DS1511+ offers fast throughput speed, excellent hard-drive bay design, top storage capacity, an overwhelming number of features, dual Gigabit Ethernet, multiple peripheral ports, and a state-of-the-art Web interface. The server handles both standard RAID configurations and flexible Hybrid RAID, and supports up to 20 IP cameras.
Cons: The Synology DiskStation DS1511+ doesn't support USB 3.0 and its setup application is not straightforward enough. It includes only one IP camera license and is comparatively pricey.
