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. Surveillance Station works great with my 2 cameras, an old Vivotek and an usb webcam (there's a driver to plug the webcam directly to synology's usb port). I backup regularly my 2 laptops, windows 7 and OSX with no 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: 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. This thing has purred since day 1 and given me practically no problems whatsoever.
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. As the administrator I love the ability to back devices up to eachother, and their cloudstation software has made synchronization of files to employees whilst traveling a breeze.
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. We'll get right into it and talk about why this is better than every other NAS on the market. The software. The Disk Station Manager software is extremely easy to use, and will allow you do to almost anything you want.
Summary: After using this NAS for 4 months I am still very impressed. I have 5x3TB in the unit using RAID5 for 12TB I went from 4 to 5 drives after about a week of use by adding a drive. That process expanded the volume, but it took about 3 days, so if you plan on getting 5 drives, try to buy them all at the same time, as the speed of the RAID is limited during volume expansion or drive replacement.
Summary: I purchased this item several weeks ago at Amazon, and while I'm quite happy with it and its performance (now), there were a couple of issues: 1) As received, the unit was making an odd "ticking" sound. I'm an engineer by vocation with many PC builds behind me, so I opened the case to augment the 1GB RAM with another 2GB board.
Summary: I replaced my burned-out Dell tower server with the Synology DS1511+ and am delighted with the product. It is fast & quiet. I do not intend to use all of the DSM features so I can't speak comprehensively about the NAS, but I must exclaim the performance. For RAID, I chose the SHR with single disk protection. It appears to function and have the same capability of a typical RAID-5 with the ability to sequentially add drives to expand the volumn(es).
