Great little box!

  • Summary: I have ordered a Synology 1511+ for the department I support and loved it, so I bought this for home use. It works great with nice transfer speeds. I use it as a datastore for Crashplan as well as a file/media server.

  • Summary: The Synology was purchased to replace a Qnap that I never could get to work right, especially for remote access, my primary need. The software is very good, easy to understand and setup this unit.

Great Unit!

  • Pros: Very nice user interface! This is my first NAS and bought this model based on combination of price and positive reviews (both here and the usual web sources). The OS is very usable and I love all of the included applications. The Logitech server is cool because I have several Squeezeboxes in the ...
  • Cons: Deducted a single egg because unfortunately mine died with a bad motherboard just about 3 weeks into using it - right after I got all of my stuff organzied the way I like it. I worked directly with Synology support and found them to be very helpful. I wound up RMA'ing it back to them and they had...

Synology NAS is great

Wenyang S., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm using my for Audio station, Video station, PPTP VPN, Cloud station. It's been working great for the past week.
  • Pros: - DSM 4.1
  • Cons: The whole unit is built out of plastic. The built quality is really not that great. I purchased my from a local computer store as they offer a great price-beat program. The Ethernet port at the back is flimsy.

Almost there

  • Pros: - Very intuitive Javascript web desktop interface - Download station is as good or better than "Transmission" - Easily customizable Linux OS that can be augmented with "ipkg", the Itsy-Bitsy Package Manager - Good build quality, looks nice, drives can be hot-swapped after unmounting
  • Cons: Doesn't support symlinks. The latest version of DSM 4.0 still doesn't support symlinks, and the stupid GUI interface silently fails to copy them without telling the user. After moving a directory with symlinks, you'll just see empty folders where the source directories should have been removed. Y...

it's ok

  • Summary: Luckily I don't really need that much support, as I'm already very familiar with *nix systems. DO NOT get this toy if you think you might need tech support... but if you just want an awesome platform to play with, go for it.
  • Pros: Very good hardware. Excellent interface. Allows terminal access.
  • Cons: When you hit the diskstation web URL (default port 80) it forwards you to port 5000 automatically because that's where the web UI is running... this is all fine and dandy unless you are running your own web server off of it... I want port 80 to say "forget it" when hit from the outside world, but...

Replacement NAS

Natalie Stokes, Amazon
27 April 2012
  • Summary: This was an upgrade to a set of NAS that owned. Wanted a higher end product with more speed and features. This product delivers. Still working out all the issues with getting it installed. (more of learning all the features and configurations) Have not set up the cloud functions yet.
