Solid product with lots of flexibilities

Wei Song, Amazon
9 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product combined with WD RED 3TB as a backup solution for my main NAS, which is a QNAP TS659. The QNAP failed left and right after about one year continuous usage due to the cheap disks in it (WD Green).

Great NAS, probably a little overkill for home use

  • Summary: Unfortunately I purchased this device during the peak of the hard drive shortage due to the flooding in Thailand, so I purchased 3 3-TB Western Digital Green drives from Costco and yanked them out of their enclosures to start my array. Setup is relatively easy.

Great Professional NAS

  • Summary: Like many of you i have tried to build a computer to be used for network storage because i thought it would be cheaper; the reality is that unless you spend just as much money and spend a lot of time and have some serious expert networking knowledge you're much better off buying a NAS like this.

Plenty of space to grow

  • Summary: Migration from my old ds410j was a breeze, disks out and slotted in to the 1512+ - config restored and up and running on the new device in 60mins Maybe expected a little more speed but not maxed out the device yet and also now have plex media server running..

A few minor subtractors, but basically a wicked-good NAS

Delta Foxtrot, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: I've had my Synology DS1512+ for a few weeks now, and I love it. The hardware seems to be exceptionally high quality. Metal case, what looks to be a bullet-proof power supply, quiet fans, subdued indicator LEDs that convey the operating condition at a glance.

Works great - Apps could be better

Martin Stupel, Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: The DS1512+ meets all my expectations; solidly built, straight forward to setup, good transfer speed, quiet and does generate excessive heat. I cannot yet comment of the ease of recovery from an HDD failure.

Very effective, Fast NAS Storage (but is it worth the high price?)

Jason Schwartz, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: I am really happy with the DS1512+ but am still reeling from the sticker-shock. Fortunately we had lots of available disk drives to put into the Synology NAS so there weren't additional costs to incur.

Flexibility

  • Summary: The system offers multiple options, most of which I have not explored. So far my only issues are the fan noise and connectivity from my iMac. I would recommend this for someone with tech experience.

  • Summary: UPDATE (9/24/2013) ----------------------------------------------- I recently moved and re-setup my gear on a new network consisting of a few netgear gigabit switches and a new apple airport extreme and thought I'd test out my speeds again. The Drobo is a bit slower...

A Very Good Storage Appliance With Lots of Flexibility

William Swallow "Dirac", Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I'm a System Administrator for a Web Development group. For one of our projects, we had been looking at NAS Units. A NetGear unit was our frontrunner. At the same time, I needed to set up a NAS for a friend, and the Synology DS1512+ came to my attention. I was tempted to dismiss it out of hand.
