GREAT ADMIN INTERFACE ... BUT?

Kris D., Newegg
30 March 2015
  • Summary: To be such a fine and relative expensive piece of high-performance equipment, it is impossible to comprehend the exceedingly poor cabinet design. If it were not for the exceptional user Interface (DSM), this unit would rate only 3 stars !!!
  • Pros: (1) An incredibly refined and efficient user interface (DSM). (2) The fastest and most fully-featured NAS for the money. (3) Proven stability, solid technology, and ease of use. (4) Very simple degraded drive replacement. (5) Extremely reliable. (6) Link Aggregation and strong processing. (7) Qui...
  • Cons: (1) The worst support you will ever attempt to obtain! They will not get back with you for days! Many report this experience. (2) Poor cabinet design, including a non-recessed, very sensitive power button that will bring your company down if even slightly touched! We shutdown our unit twice by ac...

Poor Synology Support

Jeff M., Newegg
17 March 2015
  • Summary: Don't buy unless you don't care about support
  • Pros: Concept and is nice and has worked fine until just March 2015. While it worked it was good and if Synology support did not act so stubborn in honoring their warranty (have not yet) I would give more than a two egg review
  • Cons: Synology Support. They don't honor their warranty after you spend a lot of money

Very flexible and solid performance

Blake D., Newegg
29 November 2014
  • Pros: When I bought it was for photo storage from my photography business. Since then I have used many other features including surveillance station for my home security camera system. Good motion detection algorithms and I love the timeline review feature
  • Cons: Early on I had it reboot itself a few times but the upgrade patches have fixed any problem I have had. Wish I could determine how to make multiple volumes without loosing what I have. I am sure I can just haven't had tome to do it.

Not Bad

Eric W., Newegg
8 November 2014
  • Summary: Cost me $1k for a (3) drive raid5 + 1 for backup. It's great for a small business file server with options to go cloud if needed.
  • Pros: Easy to set up. Lots of options. Web interface.
  • Cons: Not real solid. The box is cheap plastic but it works. The applications are a nice touch but more detailed setup info would be helpful.

Super Product!!

JayGao18, Amazon
30 September 2014
  • Summary: I hardly write any review on the product I purchased on Amazon. This item is the best product I ever had, though it is expensive, but it worth having it as your home server. Highly recommend if you have a little IT background.

The best Diskstation for home and small office users out there.

Rodolfo Farinas Jr., Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had this disk station up and running for more than 6 months now, and I couldn't be happier with it. It does have a learning curve with some miserable first days when you don't know how to set it up the way you want or to use it for your purposes.

User Review

Michael K., Newegg
16 September 2014
  • Summary: The option to use a second unit as a backup is cool but not sure it's worth the cost of second + more drives. NAS in combination with cloud storage seems a better failsafe option in case of physical damage/theft.
  • Pros: Reliable, quiet, customizable with a user-friendly web interface. Works as advertised.
  • Cons: none
