  • 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.

2.25 years in....and loving it more and more....

  • 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.

Perfect for home use.

  • 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.

Awesome NAS

Kartar Saxena, Amazon
13 November 2014
  • 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.

JB, Amazon

  • 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.

Works good with NAS hard drives!

Vishal D. Sachdev "-Vishal", Amazon
11 September 2014
  • 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,...

Not recommened

James S., Newegg
7 July 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: None since the the setup software sucks.
  • Cons: Everything at this point.
