Excellent product

  • Summary: Synology isn't just a NAS. It's excellent software, far beyond usual NAS features. You've got excellent user interface with seamless operation. All technical stuff is performed in background. Now I have backup server, audio player (using USB sound card), web server, DLNA server for my TV, photo album. This product is expensive, but it worth every cent payed.

Very reliable.

Peter Crum, Amazon
22 February 2013
  • 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. The only time it is not available is during a power failure. (I should have a UPS on it.

  • 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.

Justin, Amazon

  • 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. The user interface is super easy to understand and the features just keep coming with each update from Synology!!

Excellent product

Dmitry Fedorov, Amazon

  • 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. My only downside to the product is the implementation of the web-based photo viewer.

Amazing Piece of Hardware - NAS and More

electronics guy, Amazon
2 September 2011
  • Summary: I already have a Hammer 750G NAS which has been humming along without a hiccup for years. Hammer seems to have gone out of business, though, and since I have been using it for photo, video, and music backups and serving, I thought it might be a good time to "back-up my backup". After reading the reviews and comparing specifications, I decided on the DS211. It has twice the memory of the 211j and performance is a little better - not much though.

Great product for anyone

Jørgen, Amazon
6 July 2011
  • Summary: Simple, yet extremely powerful interface that takes advantage of people's experience with Windows. Device is Linux based and has a lot of powerful features - integrating well with all my other gear. Time Machine Backups from my MacBook Pro over the air, files shared to Plex media center via SMB, etc. Getting 40-50MB/s when connected to it with a wired connection - amazing speeds. Looks good, is quiet, and generally just works well. Highly recommended.

Synology DS211 - Great NAS to start out with!

D. Dean, Amazon
22 June 2011
  • Summary: The Synology DS211 is a wonderful NAS with great features and functionality. I paired this device with two of these. The Western Digital drives have the TLER function and work great in the Synology DS211 in a RAID 1 array. Using a as the backbone switch for my NAS. Installing the two drives in the unit was fairly trivial and straightforward with the guide supplied.
