Awesome little NAS for the price

Curlyman72, B&H Photo
30 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Setup was relatively easy with the synology agent software, however, I didn't have a quick start guide or anything to get started. Once you go to the support site, however, things become pretty clear. After setting up the drives, formatting them, and creating the shares, it just works.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy Setup, Fast, Quiet
  • Cons: No Quickstart Guide Found
