Slow and Unresponsive Tech Support, would not work with 4TB Drives
11 August 2013
Summary: This is my third time dealing with Tech Support. They mainly love to deal with email thru the website. The first time, they dropped shipped a replacement it was pretty easy. The next two times, poor support. As a company gets great reviews for their product, the tech support gets worse. I was running out of space, so I upgraded to Seagate 4tB drives. The volume manager would not expand to see the new space. I put a ticket in about the problem...
Summary: I've had a number of Synology products and all have worked pretty much flawlessly until I got this supposedly bullet-proof 1512+. Within days of implementing, using four disks which were perfectly well functioning in my old DS410, this RAID5 system has apparently lost all of my data because of one bad disk. Needless to say, RAID5 with data protection is supposed to do just that -- protect you from data loss if you lose one drive in your array.

Summary: I'm giving this a qualified 1 star because of a problem. If the problem gets resolved and my unit begins working again I would want to give it 5 stars. But now I have to wait and see how it works over a longer period of time before I correct my 1 star rating. Here's my story about this product. My device arrived quickly and was really easy to set up and worked great ... for about 2.5 weeks.
Yes, u guessed right, I have the blue blink of death too!

Summary: Just got back home 5 minutes ago after wondering why i could no longer access my NAS from my iPhone. Funnily enough i was browsing forums where the blue blink of death was mentioned and wondered if that was the issue. True enough, just got home now and I have a one week old NAS dead with a flashing blue light. I have emailed support just now and see how they respond. I will update my review from a one star depending on how this is resolved.
Worked great, but died quickly with blue blink of death

Summary: I bought this a few weeks ago and thought it was a stunning device. First, I was able to consolidate five differently-sized SATA drives I had and make them a large "Synology Hybrid RAID" (SHR) volume that had one redundant drive so it could tolerate a drive failure of any one drive.
Summary: Die DS1512+ habe ich mit 2 x 3 TB Platten von Western Digital WD30EZRX bestückt. Die Speichererweiterung 2GB konnte ich noch nicht ausprobieren da die Synology DS1512+ mit dem Volume erstellen nicht fertig ist. Da bin ich schon beim größten Manko der Synolgy. Die Erstellung des Volume dürfte bei so einem teueren Gerät nicht solange dauern. Das ist nicht zumutbar und auch nicht mehr zeitgemäß.
Summary: Funkade klockrent i nästan tre veckor. Snabb och förhållandevis tyst. Sedan en dag efter omstart så blinkar den bara och bootar aldrig. Detta är ett känt problem men skulle bara gälla ett litet antal av de första tillverkade 1512+. Synologys support sade att det inte var "BBOD" felet med min, men ett annat fel som behöver repareras.
