In my lifetime there are a few things I regret...

Marius Piedallu Van Wyk "Lailoken", Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: ... this is not one of them. I regret not getting a bigger model perhaps, but otherwise there is nothing I can fault with this device, and now about 2 years on, it continues surprising me. Synology's software and updates are excellent...

Love This Server

David Grunat, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I like tech stuff but I am not an expert. This is a great server to get all your stuff backed up on. I used it at first to protect my research data but now that I published my data don't need to protect it. Now it just backs up my computer.

It's a Beast, but has limitations

Jennifer C. Sears "pooquey", Amazon
9 December 2013
  • Summary: The processor could do with more oomph. Not ideal for running Plex in spite of what Synology claims and allows via their software. Would not recommend for streaming movies with the onboard software AT ALL.

Great NAS Box

Alan Matthews, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: I haven't had any trouble with this at all. Running Mac OS 10.6.8 and the NAS is attached to my LinkSys router. Transfer rates are great and the volume shows up in Finder, and since I use Photoshop, Bridge and can easily be used as another hard drive. I also have used it for Time Machine backup.

Exactly what I wanted

Negative459, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: I had previously ordered a ZyXel NSA325 based on good, competitive online reviews and the fact that it was 1/2 the price of a "comparable" Synology model. It wasn't a bad unit but it didn't meet my expectations at all so I returned it and got the DS212 and immediately I'm impressed with the...

Extraordinarily Happy with this NAS

uncas "uncas", Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: I was in the market for a redundant disk drive (something that could recover from a single drive failure). As I reviewed products I weighed the advantages of a networked storage array versus a simple usb based approach. If I had one pc to backup I would have gone with a simple usb based array.

Exceeds My Expectation!

Phat Huynh, Amazon
8 July 2012
  • Summary: This is my not my first NAS purchase, but it is the first one that I didn't return. The unit itself is elegantly designed and is very quiet. The speed is as expected, although you might want to invest into some more CPU speed and RAM if you plan to do a lot of 3D movie streaming (It works just fine...

Excellent piece of gear

TPG, Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: After living with a ReadyNAS for 2 years, switching to the DiskStation was an excellent choice. The DiskStation user interface software is significantly more advanced (ease of use, options, etc.) than that with the ReadyNAS.

Rough start but worth it.

Bob D "Bob D", Amazon
24 June 2012
  • Summary: Initially setting up the NAS was tough. I work in IT and understand the technology and have years of experience with Linux. During the disk initialization and parity check my NAS kept on kicking me off the box and losing the connection.
