Be aware of hardware problems

gn, Amazon
11 June 2011
  • Summary: Before you buy it may be best to check on reviews from others. Mine worked reasonably well for a few months and then the network interface went dark. All Leds seemed to be working but I could not access the box at all.

Great Idea - Poor Execution/Control

Zaskar, Amazon
11 June 2011
  • Summary: My company purchased over 5 of these and also 10 of the 3 1/2" version. They have been nothing but a problem, out of all that we've purchased we had huge install problems. Their DSM software install is such a pain.

Slow Remote Transfers

eneco, Amazon
11 June 2011
  • 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.

Proceed with Caution: RAID + Laptop Drives = Disaster

B. R. Whitty, Amazon
11 June 2011
  • Summary: I'm going to keep it brief, but I am an owner of the previous iteration of this device, the DS409slim, having purchased it shortly after it was released.

Terrible Product

Dr. Rick Williams, Amazon
11 June 2011
  • 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.

Not ready for primetime

Anonymous, Newegg
26 April 2011
  • Summary: Wow, this was a pretty expensive paper weight. This is really surprising, because I own an older Synology unit, and it works perfectly.
  • Pros: Unit worked incredibly well, for about eight hours.
  • Cons: The unit will not respond to anything I can send to it anymore, and likes to turn itself off.

Unreliable rubbish

R.Patel., Amazon
23 June 2011
  • 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.

Es lebte 2 Jahre und 3 Monate. RIP

Akos, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: Ich wollte eine sichere Speicherung der wichtigsten Daten. Ein RAID 1 mit zwei Festplatten war hier in Einsatz. Das Ding hat ihre Seele nach dem letzten Update von DSM 5. Update 4 aufgegeben. Da halfs nichts, auch der sofort angeschriebene Support nicht (weil sie gar nicht meldeten).
