Great for business and home use!

Wei Yang, Amazon
27 February 2015
  • Summary: I've had this unit for over a year now and it has performed beautifully. It's relatively quiet when operating, and with the constant OS upgrade from Synology, the unit has just gotten better and better. I am currently running the setup with 11 spinning drives, and 1 600GB SSD for cache - this has made the unit even quieter during normal operations allowing some of the drives to rest during read only requests.

easy to use and setup

  • Summary: Work as described, one thing that needs improved it the enlarging of drive space when new drive in installed. It works but it takes all week. Other than that they work, and work, and work. easy to use and setup. Many uses for this device with the programs is can run. So good bought another for backup of main storage.

A great product

Zach, B&H Photo
8 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this item for my home use and am extremely happy with this product. It is fast and reliable. Have used it for over 6 months and has never missed a beat. I have currently 8 drives in use with 4 bays empty. I have kept 2 drives as redundant (this is the maximum, which means 2 drives can go down simultaneously and still the NAS will not loose data). I use this to backup all my computer data in the house using GoodSync (an excellent lightning fast backup program).
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable
  • Cons: Nill

  • Summary: I found that the DS3612xs runs much faster than the DS2413+. I've been uploading the same 24 TB data set of images to both systems, and it is going almost twice a fast to the DS3612xs. I am trying to figure out if this a networking issue, or processor issue, The DS2413+ seemed to have stalled several times where I had to reboot the system.

Great Server

Anthony Scarpitti, Amazon
22 November 2014
  • Summary: Since this is my first server it is hard to compare to others but will have to say that my experience has been very positive. The unit is built very sturdy and is easy to insert the hard drives. The software that comes with the unit (DSM) is very mature and robust. There is lots of help for any of the software options as well as a Synology forum for any special discussions. I have been running the server for over a month and am very happy with the purchase.

No support

John F., Newegg
13 November 2014
  • Summary: We have 40 iosafes for our stores and 2 DS2413+ for our corporate office to manage the other diskstations as well as back up our other servers. While we dont see too many problems from them, the times that we do, it is crippling since the diskstations are being used as server backup targets.
  • Pros: DMS is easy to install and use. Quick to get started and set up almost anything you need.
  • Cons: Complete lack of support. I have put in 4 support tickets so far and have only heard back from 2 of those. Of those 2 they took at least 72 hours to get back to me. Although they offer a support line, they will only ask you to put in a ticket with no escalation procedures. I would recommend to not use this for business purposes.

My second one for home, it is just that good.

E. Nixon, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I've worked with Drobo, Promise, ReadyNAS (no QNAP), and the Synology DiskStation is by far my favorite. I also have a few of the DiskStations at work. I've even recommended other co-workers get a DiskStation since I like them so much. This is the second one I have purchased for home. I primarily use it for backups. Yes, I even RAID6 my backups along with online backups.

Solid NAS

YONATHAN A., Newegg
7 February 2014
  • Summary: Installed 12x 4TB WD RED - SHR with 2x redundancy + Hot spare = 32.7TB total. Synology NAS's love talking to other Synology NAS's and its very easy to setup UPS server and auto-backup solutions among the family of five Synology NAS's I have.
  • Pros: Easy to setup and manage - Well built and has loads of features - Simple easy to use UI.
  • Cons: The drive bays don't have a positive snap like on the DS1812 Model - Installing drives feels a bit flimsy.
