I am very happy with the free software and updates that Synology provides

Summary: I've been using the 8 bay Synology NAS box with (6) 4TB drives for over a year with no problems. It is the fastest NAS I have used, and will saturate a gigabit Ethernet connection. The expansion boxes seem overpriced for what they are.
Excerpt: I've just started to set it up and use it...I've installed eight enterprise-grade 6tb drives which I'll set up as a RAID 6 array. Putting the drives in the trays and putting the trays in the DiskStation was supremely easy. The web-based software install was also easy and went off without a hitch.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Highly Compatible
Excerpt: Only 4 stars because its not yet in production use. After much product research (many vendors) I purchased this for 2 main purposes: 1.) Backup target for muptiple Win7 hosts (using Acronis); 2.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast Delivery, Good Price Point, Highly Compatible
Summary: I love, love, love my Synology DiskStation!! This thing has so many features that it is almost too good to be true! If you have never used a Synology, they come with a very intuitive GUI and they offer their own applications.
Summary: This box provides a huge amount of storage, but istricky to keep going. This is basically a linux server running on a tiny processor, with no support available from Synology. It is treated as if it was an appliance (that costs $3000 including the hard disks), but nobody will come out and fix it for...
Excerpt: This diskstation is extremely usable. The web-based GUI is powerful and responsive, though not always intuitive. Performance of the ATOM processor seems good, with low CPU and memory usage most of the time even with a number of services running.

Summary: Purchased on December 17, 2013. August 4, 2014 now and still going great. Reasonably simple to configure for various services. DSM updates are frequent and vulnerabilities are patched quickly. Nothing negative to say about this device. It's handled everything I've thrown its way thus far.
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...
Excerpt: connectivity and managment to this SAN is very easy. My kids have no problem accessing their files and it took very little to no training. Integrates with very well with our Android, Windows and Linux devices. Samsung TVs pick up the storage
Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Family Friendly, Fast, Highly Compatible
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.
