Excerpt: I bought this because I manage a lot of video files and thought this would be a good way to store and access them. Obviously I did not do my research and this is not the right product for me. Perhaps it's good for someone else, but here's why I hate this machine: 1. Very clunky on a Mac.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable

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 no...
