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.
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...
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.
Excerpt: Over the last 5 years, I've used NAS devices from IOMega, Buffalo Technologies, and now, Synology. Prior to Synology, I've had mixed results, with reasonable GUI's and performance. This purchase was made to replace a failing Buffalo Tech.
Excerpt: Currently this NAS is being used as an on-site image back up and Git Repository. Pros: Easy set up almost literal plug and play Setting up users and permissions took about 3-5 minutes per user (20 in total). This setup could have been scripted for faster setup via SSH.
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.
