What is your Data worth?
3 September 2014
Summary: I store many photos. Memories that are nonrecoverable. With Synology, I got what I wanted: Reliability Expandability Ease of use Storage Capacity Has been running smoothly with 2 Hitachi 1tb in Raid 1. In the future, I will buy the 5 bay expansion box and run Raid 5. It is not as fast as an internal drive because it uses the network. I use gigabit. Goes to sleep sometimes too fast but this setting can be adjusted. Sits on my desktop and makes quiet clicks.
Summary: i have installed around 8 of these, on many friends and business, and they are just flawless! fast/reliable/configurable... and they keep improving features to be better!! all worth an investment!
Summary: This is a great NAS. It's been extremely reliable. I'm not a computer expert and still found it relatively easy to set up. Plan on purchasing Enterprise HDD rather than Desktop especially if you're running it 24/7. I would have rated it 5 stars if it was easy to customize using the Synology software but unfortunately it's all Greek to me.
Summary: I store all of my content on a Synology DS1010+ running a 10TB RAID 5 volume. When you think about the massive volumes you can build and at such a low price point on a system that sips power it really is incredible. Runs like a tank.
Summary: i just reach the Limit on my Synology DS1511+ and had a 300 GB free space left i was between buying a new DS2411 1499$ + or adding a DX510 499$ then i when and decide to buy the DX510 because i know there will be a new product with a betr CPU and more stabel then the DS2411 but the DX510 had a major problem is when you do expand to the existing volume and the power shuts down it might crash and the data will all go so of that i did a new volume with a 5X3TB WD Green HD...
Summary: After testing a BUNCH of other NAS devices I have finally decided that Synology will be my only choice in the future. This thing is REALLY fast (over 90MB/sec over Gigabit LAN with jumbo frames) and easy to set up. I setup with 2 x 2TB WD hard drives and then upgraded to 2 x 3TB WD hard drives without missing a beat. They aren't cheap, but save so much time they are worth the extra cost.
Summary: This NAS has a lot of features. I can connect to it via my iPhone, my Xoom, and obviously my laptop. I didn't quite get the blazing speeds mentioned, this was also via WiFi. The tech support did respond quickly when I had questions and I can say speeds are pretty fast if directly connected via ethernet. I would buy this all over again.
Summary: Synology DiskStation 5-Bay (Diskless) Scalable Network Attached Storage DS1511+ (Black) Although I am reasonably competent with PCs and Mac's, I am a neophyte when dealing with NAS units. I was a little concerned dealing with Linux or command line prompts. I also wanted a solution which was scalable, required minimal handholding for adding or replacing drives, or changing RAID configurations as the number of drives in the unit grew.
Summary: This NAS is easy to setup and extremely fast which made transfering files from my old NAS much faster than I expected. I configured the device with two Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB drives in RAID 1. I have seen network transfer rates between the Synology 710+ and my Intel SSD at up to 900 Mb/s on large (over 1 GB) video files. When transfering over 17,000 photos of a few MB apiece, the transfer rates from my old NAS to this device were 500 Mb/s to 600 Mb/s.
