Good box

Gonzo "G", Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: Most NAS boxes are junk or super expensive. This box is a solid performer and is reasonably priced. Setup was simple. Some of the interface is clunky and apps are not very easy to load or use but for keeping a RAID backup of my important files it does very well. No hiccups and the email alerts seem to work well. Still don't like the interface.

Photo Storage Solution

J. Morse, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for a new way to store my wife's collection of digital photographs (she takes a ton). In the past I had a Dell desktop with a security RAID setup, plus a daily scheduled backup to an external hard drive to ensure we wouldn't lose anything due to a computer or hard drive failure. The system worked great for years, however the hard drives are now full and the computer runs Windows XP and is not upgradeable to Win7 (or Win8) so I needed a new solution.

Good, but has some minor issues

Sheedoe, Amazon
12 March 2013
  • Summary: Had a couple of issues with this device. First, the software has this auto "convert-thumbnail" function, that just eats away system resources if you have any picture on your shared photo folder. For example, when I upload just a single medium resolution photo, the "convert-thumbnail' process would start in the background and keep the CPU at 100% ALL THE TIME! It would only stop if I remove all photo(s) from the 'photo' folder.

Great Plug and Play NAS with a few setbacks

Raymond Hill "waterstar", Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: The Synology Diskstation line of devices all share a similar operating system and it's features are solidly built. There are some issues with this particular unit when it comes to thumbnail build time taking a long time. But it's a less powerful processor so that's to be expected. As long as it isn't overwhelmed by uploading thousands of pictures at once it should do just fine. Although some of the Diskstations will run PLEX it should be noted that this one will not.

Great gadget, worth the spend!

  • Summary: Second Synology device I've had. It's a well trusted company and seems to have good reviews from most people. This model is great for someone who uses a lot of media as well as for general office use. Would recommend for the person who watches lots of movies and wants a DLNA compatible device for their home entertainment system.

User Review

skybox2k, Yandex
8 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Отличная качалка торрентов, медиасервер, сетевое хранилище для Time Machine. После перехода на SSD и ноут решил отказаться от качания торентов на компьютер, т.к. с телевизора и смотреть приятнее.
  • Pros: Отличный функционал и простота эксплуатации
  • Cons: Хотелось бы его совсем бесшумным сделать, но и громким его назвать не могу. Не поддерживает exFAT

Gutes NAS System aber man sollte wissen was man da kauft

Chefkoch, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: Die Diskstation ist ein sehr gutes NAS System aber man sollte schon ein wenig Ahnung haben, wie man die anschließt und konfiguiert. Ich hatte keine Ahnung und ohne die Hilfe meiner Kollegen, die schon eine hatten, hätte ich das Ding nur schwer zum laufen bekommen. Vieles geht mit Synology, aber man muss halt wissen, wie man es macht. Was mich ein wenig enttäuscht hat, ist die Fotostation.

hardware läuft super. Software ok

M. Nolte, Amazon

  • Summary: Also die Diskstation läuft, ich hatte nur einmal ein Problem mit dem Zugriff über ftp. Scheinbar hat ein Neustart geholfen. Die IP wird auch nicht immer angemeldet. Der Support ist aber super.
