1 year with my Synology NAS.

  • Summary: What can I say...It is perfect for my house...Running Raid 6 8tb (4x4tb WD Red). Has lots of application and 3rd party support. Most of the stuff that it offers I don't even use (Cloud) due to security concerns. But, it is just perfect for me...

Anyone could manage this NAS

Sue Nami, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm used to installing more involved redundant fiber channel SANs and this device was a breath of fresh air. We needed a simple, inexpensive NAS for some back-up storage and the Synology Rackstation. The amazing thing is that this seems to be a well-supported device from the manufacturer with almost constant refinements of its OS and built-in "apps". It deals well with all kinds of access (FTP, no prob. SSH, no prob. SFTP? easy. rsync over ssh? Waa? It's supported.

Nice NAS

Lord Vader, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this for a college class that I teach. Students use it for clustering VMware and for storage for backups. Connects to ESXi 5+ just fine using iSCSI, and the ability to trunk the two ethernet ports makes for acceptable speed in a learning environment. May be a little slow in production, but works great for what I needed it for.

Very easy to manage

Stephen Prior, Amazon

  • Summary: I originally thought I'd build a NAS box using one of the open source NAS distributions and after setting up some tests I found them to be quite tricky to administer (and I'm a very qualified user). The Synology NAS operating system is the complete opposite of that, it's so easy you almost don't take the job seriously, but it just works and keeps working.

Great NAS with surprisingly useful provided/available plugins for media sharing/distribution.

  • Summary: Amazing product, way better than expected. The rackmount ears have removable handles in case you want to use those fancy slide out rails the kids are so fond of these days. I took em off and permanently affixed mine to the rack cabinet like god intended. One power cable (included) and network cable (not, but easy enough to make) later and I was off to the races. The install CD includes windows, mac and I think linux installers for their setup utility.

Best computer purchase in years.

  • Summary: I have a Mac Pro and a Windows Server, and got this NAS Server for storage and backup up all my systems. Setup was a complete breeze. I wish I knew this existed years ago. Great peace of mind, excellent software interface, I expect my Synology to server me well for years to come.

QA testing from manufacturer should be better.

  • Summary: Power supply arrived DOA. Too much of a hassle to RMA so I had to purchase another power supply directly from manufacturer. Once unit was working it works well.

Zero to NAS in 45 minutes.

A. Scudiero, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Background: After losing data to a physical HD failure I started researching NAS solutions for central storage to make an effective backup plan even possible. I have data scattered across installed drives on about 6 computers. After exhaustive research and deliberation I decided on this NAS because I wanted at least 4 drives, a rackmount solution, and wasn't ready to shell out multiple thousands of dollars for an enterprise NAS which would be way overkill for my use.

Great NAS

Scott, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: I use this NAS to do multiple tasks: 1) Media Server 2) Surveylance System 3) Backup multiple Macs 4) Backup a Linux server It does them all flawlessly. I get around 114 MBps over 1Gbps LAN. I'm already itching for the expansion unit even though I don't need the space yet. I chose this instead of a DiskStation because I have a small rack where I have all of my computer equipment. The unit is very quiet an runs cool.
