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.
The best Diskstation for home and small office users out there.

Summary: I've had this disk station up and running for more than 6 months now, and I couldn't be happier with it. It does have a learning curve with some miserable first days when you don't know how to set it up the way you want or to use it for your purposes.
Summary: Purchased and setup 2 months ago. It has been working without any problems. I had question for their tech support and they got me an answer back the next day. I am using four WD Red 3TB drives in this unit. Only down side is the number of emails about updates.
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.
The Synology DiskStation has met all of my expectations and has been working great for serving up files for my family

Summary: I bought this product to replace an aging file server that I use at my home. I was always running into a variety of problems with the server, and it got to the point where I was ready to spend a bit of money to get a plug-and-play device that took care of everything for me.
Summary: Replaced an older DiskStation with this one. Very fast and great for media libraries. It's one of those computer items that you buy, install and forget about because it just works. No fuss, no muss. Just the way I like it.
Summary: The only problems I have had are small ones. Mostly, the instruction are only minimal help. I you already know what you are doing, it's fairly clear, but if you are hoping to learn here, you will be doing lots of internet searches to figure out what the instructions mean.

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...
Summary: There are no drawbacks to this device. I use it to store my iTunes library as well as backups. It can be configured to do most features of a regular server. You can set up your own cloud, your own sync service, your own domain, your own DNS server (if you have a static IP address), and a gazillion...
