Synology DS1813+

  • Pros: Exceptional performance. Lots of options. Up and running in no time. Sustained writes at 115kb/sec over GB LAN.
  • Cons: Drive Bay #8 LED did not light up. Need to RMA. Too much money to not have something as fundamental as the drive light not work.

Not Quite What We Thought

LJRV, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am giving this 4 starts because as a network storage drive it is fine and the quality of the product is good. I'm just posting this review mainly to warn others (who may be like me and not paying close enough attention) that this will not work as a local storage device, which is what we were hoping to use it for. Thanks to the excellent customer service at B & H though, I was able to return with no hassle and they found something that will work.
  • Pros: Quality Build
  • Cons: Not For Local Storage

Great NAS

Barry Humphries, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Great product and easy to set up. Awesome as a file server. I purchased this for a VM ESXi server and after a little bit of playing around it worked perfectly. The only reason I only gave it a 4 is because although you can team the network adapters, the overall data transfer rate is a little slow.

Seems like the best solution but does require some work to understand and configure it properly

shlomi, Amazon

  • Summary: I wouldn't say this is very simple. It is however very simple taking into account the complexity of what it does. I chose this brand because their software was allegedly the best in this field. It seems I was not misled. I am still getting acquainted with the multitude of options and procedures, but the operating system seems nothing short of exceptional.

Couldn't be happier

G. Spearman, Amazon

  • Summary: I have two of these now (one at work). Very simple to setup and network. Loaded both with 3 TB drives and other than it taking forever to format (24 TB should be slow to format) I couldn't have been happier. Running Plex to stream my DVD collection at home. Works great. Tons of other built-in apps.

Game Changer. But Not for Newbies

Rory, Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: This is the best thing I ever did for my household. This unit is great and the software is super easy to use. That being said, I am pretty tech savvy. There are some things that I had to tinker with to work properly. Probably shouldn't get this if you don't know, or don't know where to look to learn about port forwarding or DDNS.

The best NAS I've owned so far.

Gilles, B&H Photo
22 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I love the Synology, I've been through a few devices in my quest for safe storage, personalized cloud, offsite backup and other side applications. I've tried QNAP, Drobo Pro, File Transporters and finally settled on the Synology.Each of the previous mentioned devices have their merits but in the end the Synology wins hands down when it comes to Price/Performance/Features ratio.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Fast, Full Featured, Multiple Iscsi Targets, Silent
