Summary: Bought this on sale for 350$ - 392$ w/ tax. Very good value for the money. Besides expanding enormously your storage, the Synology DSM is top notch, which is what makes Synology NAS'es worth it. Prolly if you just want a local storage array, there could be cheaper alternatives. The 413j is perfectly suited for home use (1-3 users). The CPU is plenty and same with RAM. Regarding my cons, as I mentioned the UPS implementation is dumb.
Pros: Backs up your data, Hybrid RAID or standard RAID for redundancy, Quite easy to setup, Synology DSM
Cons: Quite dumb implementation when on UPS, Ethernet port makes cable very wobbly
Summary: An excellent buy. It takes a while to get used to the various features, and it can seem complicated. But once you become acquainted it starts doing exactly what you want it to.... networked storage. The apps, once you get the hang of it, helps you to do more than you thought. Therefore they are worth the time in investing to learn to use.
Summary: First off this is a nice little box, seems fast and reliable, but I do not consider it a good solution for a home infrastructure server (eg AD, Email, Web Servers), their offering is not yet mature (although it is probably where the market is going). I particularly love the little Android apps you can download, I can basically control this completely from my phone, and in no way do I consider it a poor purchase, but it tries to be all things to all men and falls a little...
Summary: I was going to put this in my house, but unfortunately the internet connection at home is rubbish (in the sticks) so I decided to install it at work where we have a 100mb leased line, however although it only took 20 minutes to set it up, it isn't really simple. I am a technical manager in my work and so I am used to finding out how new pieces of equipment work, but this DS413J doesn't really follow any of the normal PC/Mac conventions, that's because it runs Linux - an...
Summary: Only had this product a few weeks, but my initial thoughts about this device is that it is great. Unfortunately although it says that it is compatible with my broadband router I cannot get this portion to work. I also had some issues connecting it to the media player, but this was a permissions issues and not a product issue. I think the application packages are great and the few I have played around with work really well.
Summary: DS-413j on Synologyn neljän kovalevyn NAS-koteloiden juniorimalli, jonka tehot ja ominaisuudet riittävät yllättävän pitkälle. Kovalevyjen asentaminen ja käyttöönotto on helppoa ja graafisen selainkäyttöliittymän avulla haluamiensa palveluiden käyttöönottokin sujuu helposti. Voi toimia tallennustilan lisäksi lähiverkossa esim. mediapalvelimena (DLNA/UPnP-, iTunes- ja AirPlay-tuet) tai Applen Time Machine -varmuuskopioiden levynä.
