Summary: Was intent on buying the 2TB Synology DS211J. Placed it in my cart @ $440 last Friday, wanting to mull over the tech specs over Thanksgiving. Then, overnight, the price switches from $440 to $566 on Amazon.com - Just like that !!! Must be some kind of "Reverse Black Friday Special".
Pros: Basic entry level NAS with outstanding software package. Multiple possibilities
Cons: One camera license is included with the device. To add more than one camera to the surveillance station software you must buy "Camera Licenses" which are priced over 60 USD (each) at the time of this post.
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: The scores of glowing reviews cinched this purchase in April 2011. But six months later, I wish I would've considered the less sterling comments here more thoughtfully -- and heeded warnings even from satisfied Synology users that choosing this NAS requires patience and above-average tech fluency.

Summary: Just got this NAS with 2 x 2TB Seagate ST2000DL003 as per lots of other recommendations. Had lots of issues setting this up with my imac. It may well now be the best thing since sliced bread, but the set up experience was very poor hence only 3 stars.
Summary: Im GBit-Lan ist die Geschwindigkeit eigentlich kein Thema, der Umfang der Software, ob Web oder Medienserver ist ebenfalls sehr gut. Worüber ich anfangs leider nicht nachgedacht habe war das Thema WOL (WakeOnLan), das fehlt mir mittlerweile.
