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

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

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.
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...
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

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.
