Summary: This was a well planned out purchase. Synology is known for having great products and this maintains that reputation. I originally purchased this for a reliable backup option for my computers and laptop however it does so much more!
Summary: This is my first NAS system. It works perfectly along with my Synology DiskStation 4-Bay. I have a MAC and I can now back up both Macbook Pro's within my house without issues. I also utilize it for movies, music and home business applications.
Summary: I've had this box for a couple of months now, and it works _great_. I've got it configured with four HGST Travelstar 5K1500 1.5TB drives configured as a 3-drive array using Synology's proprietary format, plus one hot spare.
Summary: Use it everyday for over a month and I'm just now figuring out all the great features that come with it. I've had zero issues with it on my home network and can connect to it over the web securely. I've updated the OS to DSM 5.0 with no problems and it's the best music server I've ever used.
Summary: It is very compact, which is what I was looking for, mostly. Very quiet, the CPU power is enough for day-to-day tasks, has no problems downloading 30+ files simultaneously from the Internet. Time Machine backups just work.
