A solid, well built NAS

LCNM "Wannbe-fit", Amazon
18 July 2013
  • 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 my Synology the way I wanted. My first problem, Synology drives cannot be NTFS formatted. This was a big problem for me because I wanted to use Windows Client Backup to NAS.

Expensive but slow

Mr. A. Killops, Amazon

  • 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.

Complicated setup for a novice, cheap plastic case but has lots of potential

Bomberman, Amazon
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. Having read lots of reviews I was confident that I could get this to work seamlessly, however to be honest this is quiet complicated to get this to work as a NAS with remote and shared folders but could also be as a result of my...

Ok, but works slower than expected

Chua Li Shen Alvin, Amazon
18 February 2013
  • 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.

Le soft est génial, le hardware ...

voiceoveip, Amazon
15 August 2014
  • Summary: D'abord carton jaune à Amazon, l'emballage "sans s'énerver" consisterait en aucun suremballage? Le NAS est arrivé dans son emballage constructeur non scellé. C'est passé mais bon. D'abord le hardware: pour le prix d'un netbook avec écran et licence windows on n'est pas particulièrement bien servi, petit CPU et mini mémoire, un boitier un peu cheap et un ventilateur pas si silencieux que ça. Pléthore de LEDs en façade aussi, à mettre près du sapin en fin d'année.

Ganska bra

krille_ro, Prisjakt
18 June 2013
  • Summary: Har suttit och konfigurerat en sån här åt en kompis ett par timmar. Den som säger att den är lättanvänd vet inte var lättanvänd är. Jag är väldigt bra på datorer men jag gick bet på en del saker och fick börja leta i guider på nätet. Vet att den här är en avancerad pryl men utan mig skulle polaren aldrig ha fått igång den och det säger ett och annat om att den kanske inte så lättanvänd.

Acceptabel

klauzer, Prisjakt
7 January 2013
  • Summary: Är du ingen expert så ska du nog låta bli att köpa den. Jag har nu bråkat med den i snart en vecka. Får inte ut alla funktioner. Bara att komma åt "paket center" för att installera appar är ett helvete. Det fungerade bra i 1 dag. Sen hände något. Flera timmar för att barra initiera hdd. Bläääää Om det är någon som har tid att hjälpa mig med appar och VPN så hör gärna av er. EDIT: Efter ca 1 månad så har jag äntligen fixat den. Dock jobbar jag på VPN.

Als Dateiablage gut - für Fotos grundsätzlich unbrauchbar

grmpf59 "grmpf59", Amazon
4 October 2012
  • Summary: Die 212j ist hervorragend als NAS. Ich habe die Platten - wie auch schon im Vorgänger 207 - als RAID 1 installiert und da ich bei der 207 schon mal einen Plattenschaden hatte weiß ich, dass das alles super funktioniert und man hier sehr ruhig schlafen kann! Ich würde diesem Gerät 5+ Sterne geben - wenn da nicht die unsägliche Generierung der Thumbnails bei der Photostation wäre! Ich habe 30.000 Fotos.
