Cons: . . . product is DISCONTINUED 4/18/2013 at SYNOLOGY website. The egg should reflect this. I feel had. How long will this be supported/updated? We dont know. Probably a few years. Good Luck. Not good enough, especially at this price point. Please just communicate Synology, otherwise clients will b...
Summary: Cloudstation is great because you can have a huge Cloud... downside is that you can only have two folders with cloud service... managing the Cloud on several computers can be quite cumbersome... and inviting others to the Cloud is not a simple email password link like Google, Dropbox, etc...
Pros: Lots of features in the diskstation OS provided by Synology and third parties, and there are new features introduced every time software is updated. Photo Station, Music Station, Cloud Station are my favorites.
Cons: I actually own two Synology Diskstations, but I bought this one for off site backup of another Synology diskstation. So while I love all the features the Diskstation provides, the backup services (there are plenty) are all problematic with it's offsite, and I haven't gotten one method of back up ...
Summary: would backup to a drive connected to the router- simple
Cons: connections to internet; upload and download- every thing is tedious; youtube videos do not match the software; can not reset system without deleting backup; stopped recognizing the router; saving files is using the internet explorer and is very slow; If you are stuck at some spot- the links whic...
Summary: If the Synology NAS has the feature set you want, you will be very satisfied with this product. It is reliable and you can get many third party apps to use with it. You can find all the good reasons to buy this drive in reviews on the web, so I will list my disappointments which kept me from using...
Complicated setup for a novice, cheap plastic case but has lots of potential
29 May 2013
Summary: I bought this unit with 2 x 2 TB WD Reds at a great price from Amazon. Ordered on Friday evening selected free delivery and it arrived on the following Monday. I un-boxed the unit and plugged it in and installed the software and it worked fine.
Summary: This is a good NAS for its price point, and with it being a Synology NAS it offers a ton of options with the ability to install a wide range of official and unofficial packages for everything from multimedia streaming to using it as a CCTV hub.
Summary: This is easy to set up and install. Nearly everything is working fine. The uPnP media server is excellent. The iTunes sever doesn't work though and that's one of the reasons I bought this. I'm using the latest version of itunes and DSM 4.1.
Summary: wish I spent the extra for the later models with dual core and more RAM - this system is good and easy to use but offers lots of apps that probably wont all run together due to limited resources.
Summary: It's in general a good product. However the upload/download speed isn't up to scratch. Basically if you have one proper connection running, say streaming video, dont' expect up to set up a second without it interfering. I would have paid more for a better model had i known.
Summary: was ich zu dieser Maschine sagen soll. Als NAS-Server funktioniert sie, wenn auch lahm. Aber immerhin, sie funktioniert. Ich habe sie aber aufgrund der umfangreichen Server-Features beschafft.
