Showing 1-2 of 2
Great in many ways, really poor ability to back up server. RIPOFF for Video!

Summary: Updated Dec 2011: So, I just discovered that Synology is EXTREMELY misleading (personally, I feel it falls in the "fraudulent" category), regarding the support for Video Surveillance on this NAS. All of the marketing pages and specs talk about the amazing Surveillance Station software and the NAS support for up to 20 IP cameras. What they don't talk about ... is when you actually go try to enable this functionality ...
Mac Users, avoid this (until the software is fixed)

Summary: Before I bought my 1511+, I researched for quite some time. Prior to picking one up, I had a Netgear ReadyNAS NV+, so I was looking for more expandability and some better performance. After reading many great reviews on this product here, I decided to buy it. Of course, this was when Lion came out, so I had to use the 1511+ beta firmware. I was suspicious, but like living on the edge (most of the time) and the beta actually worked fine.
