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.
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.
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...
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.
Summary: I use the video surveillance capability and really dig it. No thermal or noise issues. I have used WHS and found it to be annoying,...I should have bought this NAS sooner.
Pros: Very easy to get up and running. I installed 2 WD drives, (WD2002FAEX-007BA) and configured for RAID 1. Awesome interface, (running 3.2 beta firmware), with zero problems. User management is piece of cake. This is a great product. From my perspective best bang for the buck!
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.
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.
Summary: Did a lot of research and coming from an older 100mb LAN NAS, this thing feels like a Ferrari. Large copies that used to take hours, now take minutes. A 5x-10x reduction in most cases. This is partially due to the hardware, but more to do with the full and solid GB LAN support.
Pros: Great speed, and after 5 months of ownership, great reliability as well so far. This was the fastest, hot swappable, NAS I could find for the price. The option to expand to 4 more bays is also nice.
Summary: Diskstation was a pleasant surprise. Everything was faster, simpler, and just worked. NAS are not always like this, this my 3rd. I use NAS as a backup, family media storage, and a scratch disk when I move large files between machines. My old ReadyNAS Duo was slow, puny 10MB/s.
