Good NAS

Stephan the frenchie, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is by far the best NAS for the amount of money compared to other NAS: there are far better NAS but they are 10 times more expensive. <br />On a RAID5 with 8 drives of 4 TB you will be able to get 27.5 TB of space. You can expand this NAS to 72 TB by adding 2 other devices, so that's not bad.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast

Worth the price

Todd L., Newegg
22 February 2014
  • Pros: Robust feature set. Long-term maintenance appears to be easy. The Synology Hybrid RAID setup makes volume expansion a no-brainer. Synology support is responsive. The underlying OS is updated regularly.
  • Cons: Trays are plastic. Disk retainers on the trays are also plastic snap-in inserts. There's very little actual metal in the parts a user would operate. No option for dual power supply. 4x LAN ports but no native link aggregation.

Synology

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Let me start by saying you get what you pay for. There are a lot of systems out there ..yes you can build your own maybe for less. With this system your paying for the software and synology brand. I've had a few models of the synology NAS devices and I couldn't be happier.. 4 NICs I bonded them into pairs on two different VLANS on my home network everything is working smoothly. no complaints.
  • Cons: Yes a little pricey ...but try and build a comparable product ...(RAID card,motherboard, software,hot swappable drives...etc) your gonna get up there in price... even before you start thinking about the Hard Drives... There is a learning curve as far as file permissions. Depends on what you trying to do on your network! Google is your friend answers are out there...just search.

Fast, Reliable, and more than just NAS

Kent, B&H Photo
12 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this unit to act as central storage and backup for the PCs and Macs in my home. It is great as doing that, but is also now acting as my security DVR, TV DVR and so much more. Native IOS and Android apps for sharing media and files with a private &quot;cloud&quot; were unexpected bonuses.<br /><br />I has other NAS units from Drobo and Buffalo that were poor performers. This unit has 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports and is only limited by Gigabit Ethernet speeds.
  • Pros: Compact, Fast, Powerful

The Best NAS

Balad, B&H Photo
21 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This is by far the best NAS system I have owned. it's rich in features and an extreme performer. specially with the 4 LAN interfaces which can be easily combined to give the added bandwidth. The OS and the interface is nicely designed and smooth to operate. The security provisions are excellent. - I have had it for about 2 weeks now and run all combinations of tests on it. It stood true to its specifications.
