Summary: Bought this about 4 years ago. Very happy with this NAS although one of the disks failed after two years. Plugged in a new disk and it rebult itself without losing any data. Exactly what a NAS should do. Synology continues to support this with periodic firmware/SW updates
Summary: There are so much positive things that can be said for the Synology NAS line including their support! They are feature rich and have an abundance of Apple and Android apps. This is the 2nd DS411+2 we have purchased.
Summary: I bought this to backup our home computers and create a shared media server. This thing works great! Caveat for semi-non-technical people: For the hard drives you use, make sure to turn off the built-in power management on the hard drives per hard drive manufacturer documentation *before* installing...
Summary: i have lots of family pictures, family clips and music files. i used to have to do manual backup and moving files between pc/laptop/ipad and upload pictures to some online web sites. no more, this wonderful nas makes my life as a home IT technician much easier. thanx for a great product.
Summary: INASIR have been using the Synology NAS For a few months now, and have only praise to report. The NAS software is very good, and extremely usable. The NAS itself is a speed daemon, I get approximately 110 mbps down and 90 mbps upload burst speeds on a CAT5a network.
Summary: UPDATE 10/29/2012: Unit has indeed been rock-solid and flawless and wonderful since I got the replacement mentioned in my initial review. Up to 5 stars. Very happy. I'll start with the bad news. The topmost bay in my DiskStation must be empty when I power the unit on, or it won't turn on at all.
Summary: I put this together to replace my venerable Synology CS407 with DSM 2.3 on it. I used the slowest, cheapest 3TB hard drives I could find -- some 5400 RPM Hitachis. The performance difference is amazing.
Summary: I have had this Diskstation DS411+II for two months with Seagate Barracuda 2GB Green harddrives installed. After 4 months [Updated Review on Dec 2011], it is still running well. Even on the maximum "cool" mode, the DS411+II runs very quietly.
