backup of other diskstation

Floating P., Newegg
21 May 2013
  • 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 ...

A solid, well built NAS

LCNM, Amazon
8 April 2012

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.

Good Little NAS for the Price

Mr. I. Simms, Amazon
2 June 2012
  • 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.

Good NAS

Mo, Amazon
22 April 2012
  • 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.

Expensive but slow

Mr. A. Killops, Amazon
5 April 2012
  • 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.

Ok, but works slower than expected

Chua Li Shen Alvin, Amazon
5 April 2012
  • 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.

Michael Schlegel, Amazon
22 October 2015
  • 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.
