Not just Storage, but your own Cloud

  • Summary: I originally became interested in Network Attached Storage (NAS) as a solution to storing large amounts of research data outside of lab (because life just needs backups you know?).

Awesome simple NAS

John T Armstrong, Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this and 2 Samsung F4 2TB drives. I have never had a NAS but after another hard drive crashed and I "nearly" lost my family photos, I broke down and decided to spend the money on a NAS with a raid. I searched for weeks before settling on this after reading reviews etc.

Fantastic NAS

JCL69, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: This thing is fast/scalable/reliable/configurable/expandable/bulletproof and worth ten times what it costs. For the money you get a full function NAS with two drive bays, Linux OS with plenty of really top shelf apps, support for raid arrays and JBOD, thru-the-internet accessability, dlna media...

Works as advertised

Anders Johansen, Amazon

  • Summary: Put in a couple of good hard drives and you will have a solid and dependable NAS for years. Some of the menus can be a bit nerdy though, that's why I only give it 4 stars. For instance, I have never been able to get the remote access over the internet working, probably due to me not being tech savvy...

slow but reliable

C. Compton, Amazon

  • Summary: I was thinking of giving this only 3 stars because it is so slow. However, I've had it for over a year now and in this time it has continued to be very reliable, and also quiet in operation so on reflection, I've decided to give it 4 stars.

I just can't get to grips with it.

James "mjpl55", Amazon

  • Summary: I know these devices are well reviewed and people marvel at their feature set but I just did not get it. I have no doubt it can do everything I need but if I can't figure it out then what is the point. Even just running a simple backup did not work for me.

Quick review as this is no longer available - hopefully still applies to the newer version

Lahiru Dayananda, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using this for over a year now with no problems, with two 1TB drives installed in RAID 1 configuration. It's compact though the build feels a little cheap and plasticky. Makes a slight hum but is otherwise unobtrusive. Fairly straightforward to set up and get started.

Good, but I should have chosen a faster one.

M, Amazon

  • Summary: All synology products share the same (software) features, and these are very good (file station, photo station, itunes server...) On the hardware side the 211j has only 128MB of RAM, and sometimes I feel a bit of lag.

Very pretty interface, yet AFP problems using Lightroom

John, Amazon
29 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought this along with two 1TB drives to archive my images for my photography business. I have been very disappointed in this product. It is connected to my Airport Extreme and I connect to the shared drives wirelessly. Set up as RAID (backup).
