This is amazing!!! I dont know how i lived without it
12 November 2011
Summary: I bought this as a device that i could setup in raid configuration. I am so pleased to say that it is such a little package with so many features. I currently can access the device from my smart phone or pc at work by setting up a dynamic dns on it. I have the blog feature set and it works great. The photo app once setup its really nice because it allows your guests to view upload and download pics from your photo page.
Summary: The Synology unit has performed exactly as promised. However, to avoid the initial setup blunders I committed, it's worth spending a few minutes with the Synology web site (especially FAQ and their very informative Wiki); I promise the investment of a few minutes will save you more than that. I'd give the unit five stars if there had been a clearer suggestion to follow those initial steps.
Summary: Owning the DS1511+ myself and knowing what a perfect NAS Synology makes, I purchased the DS211 as gift to a friend of mine so he could easily share pictures and video clips of his newborn son with friends and family. Thus far, like its bigger sibling, the DS211 is working just A-OK perfect. There are however two things I want to mention.
Summary: I purchased the DS211 to replace another, older technology NAS I had become very frustrated with. I was teetering on getting the DS211j and did actually, but the same day ordered the DS211 and sent back the 211j when it arrived. I thought, for $100 more I could get a little faster speed. PROS: * Extraordinary, fast, easy to use graphical user interface. You won't find a GUI this good on any other NAS. * Fast writes, 40MB-60MB/s on Gig network.
Summary: Very pleased with its performance (2TB Samsung F4 EcoGreen 2TB 32MB 5400RPM 3.5 Inch SATA-II Internal Hard Drive - 3 Year Warranty - OEM ). It starts quickly and files are readily available. It is worth spending a short while reading the online support documentation to help you set up the server.
Summary: This is a great NAS enclosure and we're really pleased with it so far. The user interface is very good and easy to use, and it's got lots of useful features. You can also install extra stuff on it, like logitech squeezebox server, if you're so inclined. Only downside was the initial configuration - you have to use the synology software to initialise the unit - but it couldn't find the unit on our network.
Summary: While this is a bit more expensive than some, it really is a great piece of kit. Setup was painless, access via the Internet painless. Bursting with features. I'm sure those with higher IT skills might find something to moan about but not me. I haven't started streaming yet but all devices on the dnla network have been found with no issues.
Summary: J'ai ce NAS depuis plus d'un an et j'en suis très satisfait. Deux disques de 3To, des applis tierces qui tournent 24/24 et après quelques réglages pour éviter l'indexation en continu des photos qui prends beaucoup de CPU, j'ai un NAS qui tourne très bien et rempli son office, un bon rapport qualité prix. Seul regret, j'ai acheté un dongle wifi présent sur la liste des articles compatibles mais je n'ai jamais réussi à le faire marcher !
Summary: Bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Homeserver. Perfekt für meine Anschprüche. Benutze ihn überwiegend als Backup Laufwerk und zum streamen von Videos auf den Fernseher. Beim Kopieren von großen Dateien erreicht es Übertragungsraten von über 50MB/s. Einen Stern Abzug gibts wegen der fehlenden Option für Wake on LAN. Habe mich vor dem Kauf darüber nicht informiert. Da ich dachte das sowas bei einem Homeserver vorhanden sein sollte.
