Summary: This NAS solved a lot of things in my house. I watch a lot of movies, so I always use PLEX, the seamless integration with my LG TV is great! even the subtitles works (.srt separate file), and the audio is never downmix, i got full dolby digital 5.1.
Summary: I have had this unit (installed with 5 WD RE4 1TB drives) for more than a year. My house is wired with Cat5e cables. The storage offers faster read and write speed than the local HD on my MacBook Pro. It has been a good investment. The system has been stable and working well without issues.
Summary: This NAS is exceptional. Tons of features and options! Great stability and stellar performance. I'm getting 100mb plus transfer speeds on my GB network. Takes about 7-8 seconds to transfer a gig and a half of data.
Summary: I was looking for a SAN home solution and was hesitating between DROBO and SYNOLOGY. I chose SYNOLOGY because they offer more softwares with their solution. You can pick and install whatever you want (example of available softwares: Asterisk, sugar crm, vpn server, drupal, logitech media server, etc...
Summary: I've had a few hiccups with my synology products. I own a few DS1511+'s and a DS1812+. When they work, they are great. It's when failures occur that both the product, and more notably the company response are poor. My experience is that these things don't fail gracefully. And they have bugs.
Summary: Because of some problems I'd had with a cheaper NAS, I decided that getting a unit that's more reliable was imperative, and the extra cost for this unit was dwarfed by the data recovery costs I incurred with the cheaper units.
Summary: We have several of these NAS units in our network (DS412+, DS1511, and DS410). Their performance and reliability are amazing. We love the throughput from multiple users and heavy large file transfers.
Summary: I bought the DX1511+ after having some problems with by drive controller in my server, and in general couldn't be happier. There are a few gotchas, but I can't help but to recommend this to people who want to make their storage needs easier.
