Summary: After 1 year and 4 months of use the controller in bay 1 has failed. The device reported this as a HDD failure, but that was not the case, so I wasted another $100 on a HDD that I did not need, Synology provided very limited support regarding the issue, and 15 e-mails were exchanged before they...
Summary: The Synology D213Air worked well. The main problem is that it does not have enough power to perform a full initial transfer of all the files via wifi. Once all the files are transferred, daily use has not been a problem.
Summary: I am a busy person and often don't take the time to write reviews. However, I'm compelled to share my consumer experience with Synology support.

Summary: Everything is great besides need to make one thing better - Currently, the user/group access management is only at "share" level instead of at directory/folder level, this makes it very hard to organize the documentation and control the user access at the save time.
Summary: I bought an Amazon refurbished DS213+ for only a few dollars more that for a DS213j unit with no problems. I coupled this with two 4TB WD Red drives and an APC BE550G uninterrupted power supply. Setup was simple for anyone who can work their way through software to create shared network folders.
Summary: Use this for time machine and CrashPlan backups. Used in Mac environment. No compatibility issues encountered so far. I haven't used any of the apps, but will be trying PLEX (will update review when done) Works great.
Summary: I really love this DiskStation...but the technical documentation isn't that great. The recent upgrades in the OS have made the product more reliable and easier to use although I had a panic attack when one morning I saw it had gone into error mode.
