Slow Remote Transfers
15 July 2013
Summary: I bought this unit for a small office setup. It has been reliable, quiet, and fast on my local network. However, it has been incredibly slow for remote transfers (about 200kb/s to 300kb/ instead of 60mb+ for local) despite my ultrafast $70/month isp connection. After working with Synology support (who were very responsive), verifying I have an approved drive, trying a variety of protocols (ftp, webdav, web interface, etc.
Summary: The packaging is good however the software is terrible. We were never able to get the disks to format. There are no diagnostics other than 'failed to format' and a link to insure you have installed drives that are 'Synology Tested' At this point, you are pretty much done. I would highly recommend you look at some other device that handles both 2.5 and 3.5 inch drives and that is a tad more 'intelligent' ... This device if tilted, the drives will fall out ..
Summary: My Diskstation slim has just failed, destroying the data held on it. All my files and music -nice What is the point of having a RAID array, supposedly having safe,redundant duplicates of the data, if the machines destroys all of them. I have had two NAS boxes fail now, and all they do is sit in a cupboard. My laptop computers, which I carry around, bump, drop, switch on and off all the time have never suffered a hard disk failure.
Summary: J'achète (comme souvent) un produit les yeux fermés sur Amazon et cette fois, je me retrouve avec une désagréable surprise : la prise est anglaise. Obligé d'utiliser le produit avec un adaptateur..... Pour un NAS, qui se branche souvent sur un onduleur car très sensible aux variations de courant, on ne peut pas dire que ca soit idéal (d'autant que tous les onduleurs ne prendront pas l'excès de volume de la prise dû à l'adaptateur.
