Great purchase, no regrets

John M, Amazon
9 September 2014
  • Summary: Relatively novice user. Purchased for home use. Painstakingly debated between the purchase of QNAP or Synology. Went with Synology because of the reviews, and the fact that the DSM software package was touted as "user friendly". Great purchase, no regrets!

Great Storage Option

Larry, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: Purchased 2 of these for home network. Not an IT guru but pretty straight forward to set up and operate. Added 22 TB of drive storage plus a Cloud way bigger than anything you can afford on the web.

Excellent NAS box and superior software

28 January 2014
  • Summary: I was drawn to Synology after several favorable reviews and decided to test for myself. No going back to others no matter how much of a cost difference.

The DS412+ is a reliable NAS with attractive features

16 January 2014
  • Summary: 1. Although I had an infancy failure (which Amazon solved by providing a replacement product in 2 days flat) the unit works well. It is quiet in use. 2. The Synology Assistant software includes nice features including "packages".

Great file server

P. Acosta, Amazon
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Bought this to replace a failing WHS 2011 setup and for file serving it's much easier. Compact, quiet with hot swappable drives and Synology Hybrid Raid that even I can set up. Lacks on the media server end, Microsoft media just worked for me when I was total Windows.

a few challenges

Regular Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 April 2013
  • Summary: *** 2014 MAR 23 *** 1) If you run across the hibernation problem (Google Synology hibernation), you may find that even a brief power recycle does not resolve the problem. We had to remove power for a substantial interval to restore function.

Works good - Ensure hard drive firmware is updated

S. Dillon, Amazon
14 April 2013
  • Summary: One Week In (update below) Preface - I have coworkers who have Synology devices and had no problems at all. With their success I thought it would ramp up my learning curve. I purchased my Synology 412+ from Synology via Amazon.
