Best data safe

Szoo2, Amazon
8 April 2015
  • Summary: I have had this device for two years and it gives me some peace of mind. For people who have tons of photos, videos and other digital items that you want safe, this is a good step to take. I put 4 WD 2TB hard drives in the 4 bays.

A sub-par backup system

Dean Tersigni "TheAlmightyGuru", Amazon
18 December 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the DS413 primarily for a backup system, and in this area it’s been a letdown. While it does indeed back up my files, it is very slow and gives poor feedback. I started a backup about 50 minutes ago, and the backup software (Synology Data Replicator) still shows an empty progress bar, an...

Nice while it lasts

Mike M., Newegg
8 August 2014
  • Pros: Fast, highly capable NAS appliance, easy to set up and manage, quiet, compact, attractive design, nice user interface.
  • Cons: Doesn't seem to last. The original unit started to spontaneously shut down at random times after 13 months. The USB ports on the reconditioned replacement unit (under warranty) from Synology never did work right and within six weeks it was doing the same spontaneous shut down thing the first one ...

Absolutely hands down the best device I have ever owned

sourceminer, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: Absolutely hands down the best device I have ever owned. This changed my multimedia nightmare of a life to a simplified photo and video management, love the DS Downloader, and now have Roku devices that play all movies and photos though this device.

Unless you're a programmer, do not buy!

Steven C. Knighton, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: Synology has a very attractive website and some great graphics that lead you to believe it's a very user friendly product, but try finding simple instructions on setting up your diskstation and you're not going to find it. The instructions you do find only explain the ideal scenario.

Easy to use. . . even for me!

C. Hamblin, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this as a gift for my husband for Christmas. . . he has spent subsequent months uploading our movies and dvds to it so that we can access them from anywhere. Honestly, I know nothing about this stuff but it has been a convenient investment for us (I can access our home music libraries...

Better than Drobo

Edward Kirton, Amazon
2 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Drobo and have no regrets. Faster than my Drobo. Interface is awesome, has many installable apps -- everything from video/audio/email/web servers to Wordpress. I have no complaints. One of my harddrives is going out and the unit emailed me to let me know -- fantastic!

Imposible to get it to hibernate

Maria Carolina Strosnider, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: It does not work as advertized on the hibernation. It is constantly waking up, wich consumes energy and adds a lot of wear and tear to (very expensive) hard disks. Plus, even in hibernation the fans are always on.

Great NAS with lots of great features (and a great community)

Brett Vitaz, Amazon
24 April 2014
  • Summary: This product can really make accessing your data efficient and reliable. There is an app market place that add many great features, and there are outside programmers actively developing apps for the DSM OS. With many raid options, your data is as secure as you want it.
