Great Product and Support, but

Bassam AlTarrah, Amazon

  • Summary: Only thing I found unsatisfactory is its decoding of video and audio for mobile devices. It used to be unbelievably proficient. Then they dropped the ball with licensing problems and it has never been the same. If you have no need for that function then look no further as this product is amazing.

Not a great experience

Jeffrey S Rosenlund, Amazon
9 August 2012
  • Summary: 08.10.12 (originally 1 star) After researching NAS devices for 18 months and finding myself scared off by reviews on just about every NAS, I ended up settling on this device - based on the positive reviews here and in general across the web. Man am I bummed. Received this week, put in 2 seagate 3TB drives and fired it up. I was able to see the NAS through their software and all was going well. Then...poof, gone.

NAS Vs microsoft

William R. Wolowich, Amazon
24 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this hoping I could use it to stream music to my DLNA compliant Yamaha RX1000. Ran into many issues. 1) Windows XP or 7 does not like NAS, something about indexing in XP and libraries in 7 2) you can't move a media library from WMP 11 to WMP 12! So I'm back using my XP box to stream WMP 11 to my Yamaha. I'll use the synology eventually, but not ready for prime time yet!Too many dlna/DMR/media server issues.

  • Summary: Okay I will come back and give a better review (hopefully) when I get a new one tomorrow. I just got mine in and the fan is not working. I didn't know if I was doing something wrong so I played around with it all day yesterday and kept getting the beeping and the error the fan had failed. I sent a message to Synology yesterday and got an email back today. They said they would send me a new fan. I wrote them back and said only if you can overnight it.

Wenig Technik in einem billigen Gehäuse!

EMPEQ, Amazon

  • Summary: Bitte nicht falsch verstehen, es handelt sich hier um eine schnelles und weitestgehend zuverlässiges NAS-System für den Heimgebrauch mit einer stabilen DSM 5.x-Systemoberfläche. Aber, bitte das Gerät nicht zum Zwecke einer RAM-Aufrüstung aufmachen, denn das ist aufgrund fest verlöteten Speichers nicht möglich. Zudem muss man sich ernsthaft fragen, wofür man knapp 300 EUR für ein NAS bezahlt, in dem tatsächlich eine allerknappst bestückte Systemplatine steckt.

Ein-/Ausschalter hat Serienfehler

Ralf Bergs, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: Der Ein-/Ausschalter dieses Gerätes hat einen Serienfehler. Er ist so ausgestaltet, dass der "Stößel" eine derart große Vorspannung besitzt, dass der dahinter liegende physikalische Taster oft betätigt wird, ohne dass der Benutzer diese Betätigung ausgelöst hätte, d. h. das Gerät fährt plötzlich herunter! Wenn man nach diesem Problem googled wird man auf einen Thread im Synology-Forum stoßen, der dies bestätigt.

  • Excerpt: Приобрел данный девайс чуть больше месяца назад, долго думал на чем остановиться, но после звонка в сервис-центр Synology выбор пал на Ds 212+, хотя цена.....! Очень убогий софт, хотя на многих сайтах пишут что он лучший (я не нашел в чем).Прочитать что-либо с винта проинициализированного самим устройством из под Windows практически нереально, даже при установки драйверов для чтения Линуксовых разделов (у меня 2винта под Линуксом, отформатированы Dune и читаются без...
  • Pros: Действительно тихий,слышен лишь цокот головок
  • Cons: Совсем неадекватная цена, достаточно неудобный софт, хотя и русский.
