Excerpt: So far I like it, I like the interface and love the IOS Apps, works like magic. However, One app they should fix is for the Roku, it was horrible. And they should improve the integration with the Google Chromecast.
Excerpt: For the price you can't beat it. This is a nice solution for recording a few cameras and the apps work pretty well. Not the fastest unit on the market, but reliable and preforms well. I have serval of the units in the field and all are working well. Our primary use is for video surveillance.
Summary: Starting with the build quality and design of the DS213 we have another hugely impressive product from Synology. The outer chassis feels robust thanks to the thick plastic used and we noted no flaws or rough points in the finish.
Excerpt: I decided to upgrade since my 2tb drive died. It was one of those $ dollar things. Lasted only a year before it died. Very angry that I lost all my movies and most of my music, I decided to spend mote money and get a system that I could mirror the drives. I love this system!
Summary: Synology released an update which basically bricked the device. You can get to shares if you have them setup, however you cannot access the web interface without RESETTING THE ENTIRE SYSTEM. Lose all your settings, possibly all your data, due to their utter lack of beta testing competency.
Excerpt: This little box saved my life. I have been using Mac OS X Server for small office network here and thanks god I found this product. Its been extremely easy to setup. It took me about 1 hr to install 4TB Hard drive, install latest software version, setup shared folders, departments, users accounts...
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast
