Summary: Very easy to setup. The toolless install for the harddrives was a snap. Basically just add the two drives, and turn it on. Love the easy to use software. However, some additional research was needed to get all of my media (music, photos, videos) accessible over DNLA.

Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this product. I considered many options to include building out my own solution with Raspberry PI or Ubuntu but ultimately decided that it was worth spending the money to get a proven and reliable product.
Summary: So far, everything works as advertised. The web interface is very intuitive and easy to use. There is quite a bit of software provided/available for this unit which makes it one of the top NAS devices. It's a little pricey when compared to others, but I think it's worth the extra dollars...
Summary: This is an awesome NAS. I bought this to back up my family photos and it very easy to use. I insert the SD card in the slot and with the touch of a button, all my photos are backed up and copied to the drive. I had Dlink, netgear, and crappy buffalo. This is BY FAR the best.
Summary: So far, so good. I have it less than a month and I am verified satisfied. I bought this primarily as a media server and I had it up and running with Plex in less than an hour. My media is mostly 480p and some 720p and they all stream without problems.
Summary: Have owned the DS110j and the DS211j in the past. This replaced the 211j. Easy to set up and the speed is excellent. I'm using surveillance station to 7x24 record video. Lots of power left over for other functions. File share is good. Audio Station is good.
Summary: At first i was extremely skeptical about how a product could be so well-reviewed universally. Being the suspicious person I am, I figured this was one of those cheap-o Amazon imported products where the seller paid for shill reviews. Then I found a lot of legit reviews and gave it a try.
