Excerpt: I use this NAS as a media server for my network. It also serves as storage for my publishing archive. This way I was able to take out the 5 drives that sat in my tower case. I do like that its dead quiet and it is easy to setup.
Summary: I'm writing this review on the 1 year anniversary of purchasing this device and I absolutely love it. It does way more than I was expecting and I have to say that I think Synology programmers are very good. The other thing I'm impressed with is their attention to security and their updates.
Excerpt: I wanted to backup my library of more than 45,000 photos with some redundant safeguards, while also freeing up much needed room on my 1 TB flash drive on my laptop. After talking with the pros at B&H, they tailored this Synology product to me even though I came to them thinking I would want...
Summary: Really like it so far, but it has tons of stuff to setup if you want to experiment with all its capabilities. On boot up in Win7 the mapped drives that point to the NAS do not reconnect - I always have to provide my password to get them to reconnect.
Summary: Bought this 2 June 2014. Popped in 2 WD 1TBs. Set up was fairly easy - up and running as mirror RAID array in less than 2 hrs. Been going strong since. Firmware updates are simple, Online help is pretty good.
Summary: This purchase has been a very successful. I have two 3TB HDs for sharing media with the family in the house. This is now my primary work horse NAS. It is fast! It copies data over the network at almost 90MB/s.
Excerpt: This is a good NAS server for a newbie like me. It's not the fastest thing in the world, but you really get what you pay for. The nice thing is that it really does most of the setup and work on its own without you having to do much.
Summary: Great NAS for beginners!! I needed a NAS to share common files with my wife. Its fast and easy to configure, compact and really quiet. Can do a lot more of what i'm using it for. I'm slowly trying different functions, ( back ups, Clouds functions... ). Again, great NAS :)
