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: 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.

Summary: We got this to provide network storage and act as a media server between our Mac, PC, Android, iPad, iPhone, iPod, and Kindle Fire household.

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.
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.
Summary: After doing a bit of research my little start up business settled on this item for our server. We are small but we needed to be able to access file from anywhere. This works as a great solution and is easily expanded. There was a downside however.
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.
