Well constructed, works well.

PJP, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: When the package arrived, I was surprised how small and light it was. I was even more surprised when I opened the Amazon box and found the Synology box and a LOT of air-bladder packing. When I finally got to the DS212 itself, it was even smaller. Not a huge amount bigger than the two disk drives that go into it. The disk trays are well designed, with built-in vibration dampening, and even a set of screws provided to mount the drives.

Quality unit that beginner and expert can both use

  • Summary: This is my second NAS, first being the venerable Dlink DNS-323 two-bay NAS. Like the Dlink, the DS212 is a very nice unit, high quality construction and well laid out. The device can be set up and used easily by someone new to NAS devices and network storage, but also provides a wealth of customization options for someone more experienced/adventurous.

Great home NAS, may not be easy to set-up to for the non techie

D. Fisher, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: Purchased to replace my ageing Debian based NSLU2, needing a NAS that had more oomph to run DLNA server and could reboot itself in the event of a power cut. Initial set-up was a little tricky, hence the 4 stars. I'm using the latest BT Home Hub, but the NAS connects via a Netgear 5 port router; I suspect that *maybe* the reason it couldn't autodetect the Hub to automatically set-up the appropriate ports for external access to its apps.

  • Summary: Einrichtung der DS212 klappte auch für Nicht exoerten recht problemlos. Das Teil nimmt einm schon viel Arbeit ab. Sehr löblich, es gibt ständig SW-Verbesserungen und -Erweiterungen.

einfach zu bedienender Medienspeicher

Avicenna, Amazon
18 December 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe das Gerät mit dem Ziel erworben, einen Medienserver (insbesondere für Musikdateien) aufzubauen. Ich betreibe es zur Zeit mit einer 2TB Western Digital Festplatte (WD20EARS). Die Einrichtung im WLAN gelang einfach und ohne größere Probleme. Profunde IT-Kenntnisse sind nicht erforderlich. Der Zugriff via Laptop, PS3 und iPhone 4s (Download der App. DS audio erforderlich) klappt problemlos.
