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.
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.
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.
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.
Not so bulletproof as one would hope for so much money (Updated)

Summary: I bought mine in the diskless variety from a big NYC retailer since I was a bit put off by Amazon's return policy for this type of item. I don't have to tell you that this NAS is not cheap. Unfortunately, it does not feel like a quality product at all.
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.
Probably the Best NAS available, but still requires lots of technical savvy to get it set up for use

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.
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.
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.
