Summary: When it was working if ran fine however we recently had a power failure and since then only the power light flashes. All my equipment is plugged into surge protectors and all my other equipment is fine. I contacted Synology and they confirmed that the unit is fried and I need to get a new one :S I am very surprised how sensitive this equipment is. In going through their FAQs I found others that have experienced the same problem.
Summary: This has a lot of potential - but several flaws too. I wanted this as a replacement for dropbox - the sync my files between work / home, and also to share music, photos etc. Looks like it works well for a lot of people. I may try it again in 6 months - but right now it doesn't work for me. Admittedly my opinions are based on a single day. But in that time I ran into enough issues that I've just shipped it back to Amazon for a refund. 1.
Summary: I bought this nearly a year ago and at first it was extremely good, It was pretty much install and forget, the only issue being the lights are very bright so if you have it in a bedroom then be warned. About 6 months in I shut it down and moved it, and it never came back. Synology support need you validate the disks, which i did after much faffing about as I don't have a desktop able to house the disks, the disks appeared fine in windows , then synology want you to allow...
Summary: I bought this item a few months ago to upload all the family videos and photos. What a complex piece of kit to set up! I have spend the whole weekend trying to get it accessible from the web - NO CHANCE! In doing so i have messed up my router and had to restore it to factory default and reset it up. I wanted to be so happy with this, but frankly, its too complicated even for a user like myself who has more than a basic grasp of how tech like this works.
Summary: Just bought a 2TB version of this box to use as a replacement for a failed Iomage RAID NAS. Sadly this unit comes populated with a single 2TB drive instead of two 1TB drives so I can't set up as a RAID 1 server. Now waiting for a second drive to arrive before I set up the unit.
Summary: Köpte precis en DS212j efter att ha läst hur lätt det är att installera och styra den här NASen. Helt allvarligt, de som lämnat kommentarar och berättar hur sjukt lättanvänt det är måste tagit en drink eller två alternativt jobbar på någon it-support. Jag har lagt 4 timmar på det här och det är så fruktansvärt mkt förkortningar DLS, DNS, WEBDAV mm. Hur svårt kan det vara att göra något enkelt??
Summary: Positives: - Sieht schick aus und lockt die Blicke durch die farbkräftigen LEDs an. Das hat mir sehr gut gefallen. - Der Einbau der Festplatten hätte nicht leichter sein können. Abdeckung abziehen, mitgelieferte Schrauben greifen, Festplatte "einrasten" lassen, festschrauben, Deckel drauf, Schrauben hinten rein und fertig. In drei Minuten war alles erledigt. - Langes Stromkabel - Optisch sehr gutes Betriebssystem, einfach zu handhaben.
