Pros: There are so many good things about this product that ive lost count. Ive had many surprises about this product, but every surprise has been positive! Bought this for a automatic file backup system for home and work. Easy set up, Slick interface, merged into my network seamlessly, offers more fea...
Summary: Stop hesitating and just buy this already.
Pros: You're not only paying for the device with this NAS, but you're paying for Synology's incredible Diskstation software. Seriously look up videos of this incredible OS-like software. It allows for easy configuration, setup, and maintenance. While you can attach wireless dongles to other Synology NA...
Cons: Compatibility with external enclosures or external drives is limited and listed on their website. It's really not a con for this device, but I wish they made a 4-bay or 8-bay white wireless NAS like this. Hopefully it's coming.
Pros: I did extensive research before I bought this NAS server. If you're doing a budget friendly network get this server. Installing the DSM is rather quick and easy if you're downloading it from the internet after plugging a cat5e or cat6 cable in. Also the hotspot built in the server works great.

Summary: Purchased this Unit - A dream. Purchased; separately; Professional SE Drives - Rated above the Reds - (REDS fail quicker than the Pro Versions) see link below. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CYSYYU8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?
Summary: This has been very easy to setup and use. Quickly installed 2 3TB WD Red drives - bought as separate purchase from amazon. Easy installation. I've now got my stuff properly backed up and with regular easy incremental backups configured too.
Summary: This unit was supplied by Amazon itself with twin 2GB Seagate hard drives already fitted (for convenience), and I was relieved to find that they were on Synology's compatibility list of approved desktop-grade drives.
Summary: I was recommended this by a colleague at work and it has lived up to my expectations. Works straight out of the box with little user configuration required. Still getting to grips with all that is little wonder can do.
