Do not buy this if you have Apple computers and want to do time machine backups over WiFi

Chase "Bob", Amazon
28 May 2013
  • Summary: I escalated my issue to a manager who just ignored me. Their support was very unpleasant to deal with. Their concern the whole time was that "this guy's trying to get a refund." I only wanted to figure out how to get it working for WiFi timecapsule backups.

Really, Really Slow

Nathan_1999, Amazon

  • Summary: So I spent all this money on a NAS with the hopes that number 1, it would be fast. However, I only am able to get about 2-3 MB/sec write speed. I get faster downloads from Itunes.

Not a stable media server OR critical backup system. Bad product support. (Updated)

Sean Anderson, Amazon
20 April 2012
  • Summary: UPDATE (6/25/2012): It's even worse than my original review indicates. I've given up and have built a new media server (starting with a small "bare bones" case) and I'm harvesting the hard drives from the Synology system to use on that new Ubuntu Linux system.

Network Connection Dead After 1 Month

James R. Cunningham, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: My DS212J worked fine for about a month and then it was no longer visible on the network. I went through all the basic trouble shooting steps (new hard drive on their compatible drives list, new network cable, different PC etc.) with no luck.

Junk

denis parkes, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: In danger of becoming an expensive piece of junk. Bought this and 2 WD Red 3tb disks and can't get past the first stage of set up. Spent hours on forums, hours taking out the disks and putting none, one or two back in different combinations (why should you need to?

Not for Mac users

Ted Smegus, Amazon
24 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because I wanted mirrored disk and a time capsule. Compared to Apples offering this was slightly more expensive for 3TB but I was happy in the knowledge that data is mirrored and therefore protected against loss.

Great product (I think) but customer support is terrible

Matt, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: I was delighted when I first bought this (instructions are a bit rubbish and unhelpful but after managing to set this up it was great......for a week. I turned it off and when I turned it back on it told me that I had a degraded disk. Tried to contact customer support to help me resolve this.

Do not buy with bundled HDDs

Andrew Hollingshead, Amazon
24 April 2012
  • Summary: This is more of a warning than a review, for reviews I would suggest looking at the DS212j on Amazon without any HDDs installed. I decided to buy the DS212j/6Tb rather than buy HDDs separately, even though it worked out slightly more expensive to do so, as I believed the HDDs would be those most...

Usel

WISHM4STER, Prisjakt
8 July 2014
  • Summary: Fruktansvärt seg maskin. Den lagrar ens filer men att använda den till något annat är inte lönt. Extremt långsam beroende på att CPUn belastas konstant. Uppdateringar av DSM har gjort det värre med tiden, den blir bara sämre och sämre, tyvärr kan man inte rulla tillbaka till tidigare versioner.
