No-Brainer if You Have A Compatible Synology Device

Jason P., Newegg
10 December 2013
  • Pros: Convenience, performance, features, compatibility.
  • Cons: Not the cheapest NAS in the world, but you get what you pay for. Also, documentation is erroneous (see "Other Thoughts").

Update my Review

William W., Newegg
22 December 2012
  • Pros: Easy Setup.
  • Cons: Poor error reporting, it would have saved me a lot of trouble if I had gotten some indication of what was going on instead of just locking up or telling me the volume was crashed.

22 October 2012
  • Pros: Basically plug and play...plug in the esata cable and go to the management software and set it up. Put in 5 WD RE4 2 TB and in a few hours it all set up. Used this to expand a 1812+ 8 bay nas by synology.
  • Cons: none so far

  • Summary: Good built-in software and very easy to use user interface. Synology has a well-deserved reputation for stability and good tech support (although they are email only)

Great Expansion Unit

Sussman "Sussman", Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: I have yet to finalise my NAS configuration in my office - between the needs to store CCTV footage, work files and archiving. What's great is that the unit can be part of seamless expansion of 1813+ or standalone volume. The other plus point is that we also own the Synology DS713+ DiskStation at home, which means that if the unit is no longer needed at work it can be utilised in the same way in the home environment. So for us all bases seems to be covered.

  • Summary: Very easy to use, just connect it up to my sinology net-work storage and it connects and setts itself up. No more portable Backup Drives needed.

Top quality. Easy to use. But a little expensive.

D-No, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: Bought this to expand my Synology 1812+ after weeks of deliberating. I found it easy to set-up and use. Integrates with the 1812+ really well. Basically there are two options to use the DX513 expansion unit - as a separate volume (which can be set as a RAID enabled volume), or as a seamless expansion to the original volume on the NAS (in my case the 1812+). I rate Synology products very highly, and the concept of the DX513 is great.
