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.
extremely underpowered for what it advertises to be able to do

Summary: performance is not acceptable, it is not possible to use all the features adequately because CPU is at 100% all the time. i thought perhaps they had hardware accelleration and optimizations that allow this to function as advertised but it doesnt, it is as slow as you would expect a computer with a...
Summary: I purchased a new WD30EURX to go along with this, and was the first drive put in it. All SMART tests listed with the drive have always been good. One week after use, I unplugged it to move it, plugged it back in, and the drive in question lost it's partition on it, again, still reporting no SMART...
Pros: Clean, neat. Easy to slide drives in. UI is fairly nice. System also allows direct SSH access when needed.
Cons: Lost one of my drives partitions after a week. 2TB of data gone. Don'y rely on it for data integrity.
Summary: I purchased this as a NAS for my home network. My home network is a gigabit network and I have couple computers and a home theater PC on the network. I purchased this NAS to store all of my media and to use to backup my computers (Mac/PC).
HORRIBLE! DO NOT BUY!! I AM VERY EXPERIENCED IN RAID TECHNOLOGY.

Cons: -No way to recover your data if the raid fails without buying a new disk. So if one disk fails you are unable to make a quick backup. -When you replace the failed disk it re-formats the entire RAID volume. -Therefore if one disk fails and you do not have a backup you are not getting it back. I ha...
Summary: I really wanted this NAS to work it has lots of cool apps that can be installed on it. But the unit keeps hanging while transferring lots of files it becomes totally unresponsive. The blue light on the power button just keeps blinking if you try to shut it down, even if you leave it on overnight it...
Summary: Let me start by saying I run a software based organisation and whilst not a techie, understand the importance of usability and fitness for purpose - this product fails miserably on the usability and fitness for purpose in that I was unable to even get the thing set up.
Summary: I posted an extremely negative review before and I have decided to amend it, even though the main title stands. This buy was a gigantic waste of time, a bit less of money because I got my money back in the end as I decided to return the item.
Summary: The images here is of a DS411j not the ds413j.... these 2 completely different products? (25th October 2013) I have the 2 bay synolology nas and it is awesome but this product listing needs to be taken down and either the images or the name of the product need to be corrected.
