Rock Solid NAS with Great Capabilities - If you can figure them out...

Select Sounds LLC, Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: Had the manufacturer promised only that this would be a rock-solid NAS for back up along with file access on your internal network, I would be pleased as punch and give the 412+ a five star rating. However, they promised much more, and that is where my problems have occurred. A few basic comments before I describe the frustration factor... Installation was a breeze once I consulted the synology compatibility matrix for drives to purchase.

Media server settings are not for beginners

SRS, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I bougth it to replace a 2 bay Buffalo Linkstation wich worked flawlessly for many years. My primary use is as a safe centralized storage for my projects, media and documents. I had the Synology NAS sever for less than 3 months. During the first month I had to replace 2 disks. One of them was a red WD NEW out of the box. The other one a green WD I already had. Now it seems to be stable. I have all four bays used with red WD disks.

great performance

Dana G. Cook, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought a Synology DS412+ in February, 2013. After owning it for 11 months I have a few observations about this device. First, the performance of the DS412+ is fantastic. I don't know how you could say anything negative about the performance of this device relative to other similar devices. I don't know anything about iSCSI and I was able to set it up and use it with my workstation in minutes.

Probably the Best NAS available, but still requires lots of technical savvy to get it set up for use

Mark Estrada, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Initial review 1/3/2014 after receiving and starting up the system. I will update as I gain more experience with this. This had the best reviews compared to Buffalo and other NAS devices I had researched. My previous decade 2000 experience of running RAID and running HD off of NetGear routers was less than satisfying. Synology main web site was very helpful for deciding which one to get. It appears that NAS hardware and software has come of age in terms of usefulness.

Very Nice NAS!

Sid7o, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: Very Nice NAS, fantastic GUI. If you want AD support be prepared to reduce your security on your DC. Terrible support when something unexpected happens. -2 stars for security and length of time support takes for Email.

Power Supply failed on the first day

Kurt Van Delden, Amazon
7 June 2012
  • Summary: I was able to power up the NAS and set it up with 3x3TB drives very quickly. I downloaded the latest DSM 4 from Synology, since DSM3 was provided on the install CD. After the setup process, I shutdown the device and moved it from my office to my home. Since then, I have been unable to power it back up. The power supply makes a chirping sound. I notified Synology and they are replacing the power supply.

The principle is great - the reality less so

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: I wanted one of these to replace an old WIndows 2008 server which was running web sites, acting as a file server and also acting as my media server. The Synology can do all of that - but it doesn't seem to do it very well. The file server has the habit of dropping the connection if a large number of files are sent to it, the media server is rubbush but luckily you can get a Plexus server for it. The web server seems to work well. Hopefully, it will improve over time.

Synology DS412+

Anoniem, Media Markt
7 September 2013
  • Summary: De vakantiegeld actie van Mediamarkt gaf de doorslag om de Synology NAS DS412+ te kopen. De afhandeling van de bestelling is netjes volgens verwachting verlopen. Pluspunten -Werkt erg snel dankzij de 2,13GHz processor -DiskStation Manager 4.0 is een uitgebreide en toch zeer gebruiksvriendelijke interface (instaleer gemak en goede uitleg op website) -Diverse apps beschikbaar om functies mobiel via internet te gebruiken -Vele softwarematige uitbreidingen beschikbaar om...

Nur bedingt den Preis wert

V. Gimple, Amazon
22 April 2013
  • Summary: Habe mir vor eineinhalb Wochen - bestärkt durch Empfehlungen von Bekannten und die überwiegend guten Rezensionen hier im Forum - die DS 412+ gekauft und mittlerweile seit gut einer Woche in Betrieb. Meine Erfahrungen sind gemischt. Das Gerät selbst ist zwar schick designet, macht aber - wie andere hier im Forum schon angemerkt haben - durch die überwiegende Verwendung von Kunststoff keinen ganz so wertigen Eindruck wie man es vielleicht bei einem NAS dieser Preisklasse...

Produit de qualité mais compliqué pour les novices

Loic F, ldlc.com
31 March 2013
  • Summary: On sent que c'est produit de qualité tant sur la conception que sur les outils fournis. Heureusement que la documentation est claire parce que le paramétrage est assez fastidieux. D'ailleurs, je n'ai toujours pas réussi à la configurer correctement.
