1 year with my Synology NAS.

Ignat Sitnikov, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • 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...

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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

Exceeds all expectations

Anonymous, Newegg
30 August 2013
  • 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

isiah s., Newegg
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Dont buy it unless you want to spend a lot of time fixing their broken software. I can put up with a bad product if the support is great and we get it to eventually work, but dealing with their bad attitude was enough to make me say "I will never buy a synology product ever again"
  • 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 ...
