Very flexible and solid performance

Blake D., Newegg
29 November 2014
  • Pros: When I bought it was for photo storage from my photography business. Since then I have used many other features including surveillance station for my home security camera system. Good motion detection algorithms and I love the timeline review feature
  • Cons: Early on I had it reboot itself a few times but the upgrade patches have fixed any problem I have had. Wish I could determine how to make multiple volumes without loosing what I have. I am sure I can just haven't had tome to do it.

Super Product!!

  • Summary: I hardly write any review on the product I purchased on Amazon. This item is the best product I ever had, though it is expensive, but it worth having it as your home server. Highly recommend if you have a little IT background.

User Review

Michael K., Newegg
16 September 2014
  • Summary: The option to use a second unit as a backup is cool but not sure it's worth the cost of second + more drives. NAS in combination with cloud storage seems a better failsafe option in case of physical damage/theft.
  • Pros: Reliable, quiet, customizable with a user-friendly web interface. Works as advertised.
  • Cons: none

Go for PLEX

Brian J. Binder, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I have experience building PCs, installing Windows, but not an "engineer". I have had several windows file servers, running 2000 server, XP Pro, 7 pro, and wanted to ditch the tower for something that consumes less power and is scalable.

Great NAS!!!

David G., Newegg
19 July 2014
  • Pros: Extremly reliable and easy to set up. Have owned and used it for 11 months now without any problems or issues. We also use the Surveillance Station which is a GREAT application, and very easy to set up as well. Currently we are using 2 - 4TB Seagate drives. Will expand with 2 more drives as neede...

The Best NAS, period.

14 July 2014
  • Summary: I absolutely love my Synology and can't imagine life without it now. I dropped cable for Plex/Amazon Prime/Hulu+ combo (in conjunction with 2 Roku 3s), run a VPN through it for when I'm using public WiFi, back up my computer onto it and host a Git server for projects I'm working on with my brother...

Where to begin? I love this thing!

Jordan C., Newegg
11 July 2014
  • Summary: Just get one. It's completely worth it. I really want one of their 12-bay ones. Just to have it. Ahh.
  • Pros: Bought this for a combined web/mail/media/whatever server. Hardware and software-wise, it is one of the best, all-encompassing, easiest to use, most customizable products I've used. I've rarely seen processor usage go above 30%-- and remember that I'm running various servers on this thing. It's u...
  • Cons: Mail server package is a little convoluted still. It works, but it could be better. You'll have to be fairly tech-savvy to set up a website and be able to have it accessible from the outside world (meaning not just on your local network). That's just the nature of it all, though. Wish it had more...
