Summary: I put four four terabyte hard drives in this NAS. So I ended up with about 10.5 TB of storage space after it set itself up as a RAID. It worked as intended. It survived for 7 months on a rocking ship and regularly streamed videos and music to a half dozen users through a separate router.
Summary: This is a great NAS system, and works for exactly what I wanted. I needed something with a good deal of storage, and has a number of options for software. This is a 4 bay system, to which I have 3x 3TB WD Red HDD's installed in it.
Summary: Bought this in Feb-13. Software and usability has improved greatly over the interim. I'll admit that the first DSM (DiskStation Manager) and app versions I used were a bit clunky and the apps didn't work terribly well. However, the newer versions have really kicked it up a notch.
Summary: I writing this after having the Synology DiskStation in place for over a year now. Fantastic product!!! In the proprietary UI, Synology has made a network attached storage device (NAS) that is an easy to configure cloud station, whole home network music interface that works with a host of products...
Summary: I couldn't be happier with my Synology. I upgraded from a home-built Windows Home Server setup, which was incredibly flexible but not entirely fun to manage. As someone who works with computers all day long, I didnt entirely feel up to coming home to manage another server.
Summary: This is an excellent piece of hardware. Apart from the basic functionality of a NAS, it provides multiple other features, making it a monster server. The device comes with some very competent mobile apps, that make using the NAS a charm.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for a failing D-Link DNS-323. I backed up my data off the D-Link, took the 2x 1.5TB drives out of the D-Link, installed them in the Synology along with 2x 4TB drives and set it up with the Synology Hybrid Raid.
This is the second Synology I've purchased. Bought the ...

Summary: This is the second Synology I've purchased. Bought the second one for my daughter and her houesmates who are all in school. Their MacBooks now all back up automatically via TimeMachine. One of them recently had a hard disk crash, and was able to restore everything with no data loss.
Summary: It works perfectly. I use it for backing up stuff from my LAN server. A recommendation for buyers who is it for daily backups. This NAS works by mirroring all the drives in it. It means that even though you put 4 hard disks of the same storage space, it will show as if there is only one drive,...
Summary: I bought this to as a media server. I have a DLink 2 bay NAS which is running out of space since I only have 2 1.5 TB drives in it. I bought this so I could get at least 8 TB storage. So far it has been a big mistake. The software for this is a steaming pile. It is overly complex and bloated.
