Exceeds all expectations

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Great little Linux box. Assisted RAID-10 setup worked flawlessly; stability has been incredible. Mine is running CrashPlan and other Java services, as well as BIND9, HTTPD, and syslogd. Used two 3rd party (G-Skill) RAM modules purchased from Newegg to increase to 4GB.
  • Cons: No redundant power supply and RP model costs ~$600 more. Web management interface is quick but only moderately intuitive until you get used to it.

customer support is terrible

  • Summary: Lord help you if you dont use a hard drive on their preferred list. I bought a hard drive that they said was compatible except it had about 10GB more memory and that was their justification for not viewing the logs or helping.
  • Pros: It has yet to break and I learned a lot about how to debug their own product
  • Cons: The tech support is terrible. They do not know the basics of s.m.a.r.t. or iscsi. Both of which I found bugs with in their system. There is no way to send them an email for support so calling is required. The calling hours are small and the overall attitude they give you is awful. You spend more time verifying serial numbers then getting actual help. I deal with vendors all the time and this is the worst product support I have seen in years.

  • Summary: Die NAS kommt bei mir mit 3x 3TB WD Red Platten im Raid 5 zum Einsatz. Transferraten von max. 120MB/s sind hier kein Problem. Der Hauptspeicher kann noch aufgerüstet werden. Das komplette Mainboard kann man auf der Rückseite über zwei Rändelschrauben lösen und herausziehen. Da ich schon mehrere NAS hatte (QNAP, Buffalo), kann ich sagen, dass die Synology Geräte am besten sind. Synology bietet die beste Unterstützung für Tablets und Smartphones.
