Very Easy to Setup and Use

  • Excerpt: Purchased to backup documents and photos in case of a PC hard drive failure.Very easy to setup and install into my network (took less than 10 minutes). Streams music seamlessly to all of my iTunes using devices (haven't tried movies yet). I am able to remote in from anywhere and easily use the Diskstation interface to access files and surveillance cameras.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy Setup, Fast, Quiet

very happy with the DS414j

Rob D., Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: I recently purchased the DS414j, mainly for its ease of install/setup, ease of use/upgrading, and multi-functionality. It was dead simple to get it up and running after installing 4 x 2TB Seagate Barracuda disks. Once I had it running, updated and all the packages installed and updated, I started aggregating my media collection off multiple USB 1TB and 750GB disks to the Synology.

The description and title is incorrect!

whooosh, Staples
6 November 2014
  • Excerpt: First of all, Synology is a great product. However Staples has managed to mislabel this product. IT IS NOT 16TB. Both the description AND the title is incorrect. If you order this, it is a DISKLESS enclosure.I've chatted with customer service and phone call to their technical help, somehow they think is includes hard drives. (It doesn't) Staples needs to step up their product listings to correct huge flaws like this.

Great Product!

Mac Tech, B&H Photo
20 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Great product for our business needs. There were some features I wish were easier to set up, but overall the machine is great! Configuration was a breeze, especially when using Synology's Hybrid RAID! This is an amazing, low-powered, high-performance, multi-function device! Multiple synology boxes talk together quite seemlessly! I'm thinking of getting a smaller model for my own home!

Great hardware, but not exactly plug and play

krf, Amazon
13 October 2014
  • Summary: As expected, although the install instructions left a lot to be desired. Just plugging it in and turning it on did not work for me, but after a couple calls to tech support, all was right with the world and my DS414 is happily and fully engaged.
