Synology storage servers are excellent. I own 3 of them.

Summary: I am delighted with the Synology Diskstation performance, and especially the GUI-based operating system. I buy whatever Synology is offering when I need another one. So far I own the DS211+ and DS213+ desktop models, and the RS815+ rack mount model. Excellent products.
Expensive, Unreliable - failed after 18 months. No option to repair or replace parts.

Summary: Originally I was very happy with this Synology unit but the included software leaves a lot to be desired. The admin console is adequate but the built in backup tools did not really meet my needs. The worst part was that the unit failed to power on after about 18 months.
Summary: I have had this unit installed for a year or more. It was easy to set it up so everyone inside the house could access it. It took a lot of work to make it available over the internet. But since I set it up it just sits there and works and works and works.
Summary: Put in two 2TB drives in RAID configuration. Works like charm - even with Mac Time Machine. Just set up a folder. The drive can be accessed through my DLNA compliant TV which eliminates the need for middleman for format conversions. Have recommended to friends and colleagues.
Summary: The product is OK, or maybe better than OK, but if I had the choice - I would buy a different model, and not recommend this specific one: a. I would go to a faster version - this one has a little slow response to my taste b.
Summary: I have tried many different products when it comes to Network Attached Storage, but this one is by far the best one!! I know several other people who own Synology products and they all love their units so I felt confident about purchasing this one.
Summary: This is an excellent NAS!!! I have looked and tried several, this one is not on a cheaper side but certainly delivers! It's fast and very configurable. Works perfectly over ethernet and wifi. Read other reviews for details.
