It kind of reminds me of windows 95

Dan L., Newegg
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I too think I am going to trade this up. I love the product, I just think it needs more muscle given what I want to do with it.
  • Pros: It's a Synology. The management interface is several multiples of awesome. Community seems great too. Hardware is solid, and for the most part easy to set up. Can find good documentation on how to set it up to backup to CrashPlan on the web.
  • Cons: I did read William P's comment before buying this, but didn't really take it to heart. The reason this is $220 less than the DS412+ is because of the hardware. There is so much you can do with this device that once you start setting it all up, you begin to realize there aren't enough hamsters tur...

Great Interface, Slow Performance

W. Nielsen, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I am completely amazed at the quality of the interface that Synology has for their DSM. It is very impressive and easy to use or find information quickly about things you'd like to do but aren't sure just yet how to do.

Works, but not as expected

William P., Newegg
1 February 2014
  • Summary: I contacted Synology initially to explore some of my concerns and while discussing with them my intentions it was made clear that the unit appropriate was a DS1513+ which I ended up ordering from New Egg.
  • Pros: Unit is small. Clean looking and fairly straightforward. When it comes to Synology there is no doubt their OS is what makes the brand a quality product. Set up was super easy on the unit. Thus the 3 eggs.
  • Cons: Of course, you get what you pay for. However, unfortunately with this one the 512 MB of Ram and the 1.6 GHZ makes it very difficult to use all the features it truly provides. My purpose for the unit was to build a home Cloud server with our primary files to be Video, Music, and Photo's all access...

Device is a 5, support is a 1

Vyccid, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: Summary: Pretty solid, great for home/backup/media, but questionable as file server for office use (including home office) because support may leave you twisting in the wind for a long time. Great value if you have the time and skill to support it yourself.

Works but slow

BrianD, Amazon
17 May 2013
  • Summary: I'm using this to store photos on my home network. As an amateur photographer I'm starting to take storage a bit more seriously. I have my DS413j setup with two 2TB hard drives in a RAID 1 configuration. Installing and setting up was easy except for the fact that it defaults to Synology Hybrid Raid.

A mixed bag.

Blake Wood, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a very experienced mid-level computer user (computer user since 1984; Mac user since 1990). Not an IT guy, but someone who normally does tech support for his parents' and wife's computers.

Acceptabel

Zhack, Prisjakt
27 November 2014
  • Summary: Min första erfarenhet av en NAS, har tidigare använt en vanlig PC med diskar och windows server. Överlag är jag ganska besviken på hur den presterar även om funktionerna i teorin är bra. Plus Lätt att installera både fysiskt och konfigurationsmässigt.

User Review

5 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Веб морда немного напрягает, но со временем привык.Короткий и неудобный кабель БП - пришлось заменить.
  • Pros: Поддерживает все протоколы и сервисы, DLNA+SMB+FTP Всеядный - испробовал все диски которые нашел: от 250 Мб до 3Тб - все принимает. Тихий в работе, простой и не прихотливый
  • Cons: Невозможно использовать установленный диск без переформатирования, даже с казалось бы родной системой EXT4 - это очень огорчает. Копирование и индексация идет крайне медленно, скорость не выше 23-25 Мб/с при этом загрузка процессора 100% Нет eSATA

Performance auch für Privatanwender nicht ausreichend

Claw, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: Auf der Suche nach einem günstigen 4-Bay NAS, habe ich zur DS413j gegriffen. Der Funktionsumfang ist klasse und ich habe gemeint, dass für meine Anwenung die Konsumer-Reihe von Synology ausreicht. Leider ist dem nicht so!

NAS fiable, pero mejor más potente.

Miguel, amazon.es
4 July 2013
  • Summary: Funciona bien, muy fiable y para música la transcodificación va sueve. Si s eprecisa transcodificación para el video, mejor buscar otros modelos de la misma marca con microprocesador más potente. Si algún día cambio, sería por uno superior de la misma marca.
