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

I want to love it but three new HD failures and a two week period of not being able to wake the device from hibernation....

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this in June to replace a Windows Home Server that has preformed well for me for the last 4 years but which I acknowledge will need to be replaced. It was July before I had the chance to set it up - I added two brand new WD 3TB Red drives and one 2 TB drive and created the storage volume...

CLaudio Robles, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: After using this NAS for about 4 months I starting having troubles. First the blue light keep blinking and I could not connect to it. The folders were still accesable. After working with Tech Support, who made me reinstall the OS (DSM) and said that there was a vulnerability in their code, they said...

Great system until it fails - then can be used as a great and attractive stand

Dan B, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: Update: System not repairable once the warranty runs out. Synology maintains that does not and cannot repair these units once their out of warranty. There is no authorized nor non-authorized repair center, and Synology will not sell you the needed parts either.

Cannot Access Management Panel

R. Rohrssen, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: This appears to be a find product with many options, and many that are probably beyond the average home user. I looked forward to replacing my Windows Home Server with this NAS after my nearly 9 year-old WHS began experiencing issues.

Possible Loss of Data after Reboot

Bryan Kondrat, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: I went to update the firmware but it told me it was on the latest version. I did a reboot and it never came back up, after I got home and looked into it further it appeared the device's GUI had become corrupted and needed to be re-installed.

Flatters to deceive

Chris Butler, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: Looks great and the initial set-up goes like a breeze. However, if you are buying this because it can server music (either as a dlna server or Logitech Media Server) or photos just check the internet for the hordes of people who, like me, can't get these things to work.

Toll bei Multimedia, kein Verlaß auf Datensicherheit im Raid5

RPB, Amazon
25 April 2015
  • Summary: Zur Datensicherung ungeeignet! Ich habe die DS-412+ seit rund 2 Jahren in Betrieb mit 4x WD30EURS 3TB Serverplatten bestückt im Raid5 Modus. Am Wochenende Ausfall der Platte im Bay 2. Kein Problem, dachte ich, dafür hat man ja den Raid5. Alte Platte raus, neue rein und alles sollte wieder gehen.

Nichts für meine Zwecke

Manfred Kardel, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: Ein ordentliches Gehäuse mit leicht und schnell zu montierenden Festplattenführungen. Das Problem für mich ist, dass der sogenannte iTunes-Server nicht wirklich einer ist. man kann seine Musik drauf kopieren und auch von dort hören, aber es wird alles anders umbenannt, die vormalige Sortierung ist...
