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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I got this to replace a consumer NAS, so I was expecting the performance gains. Beyond that, I found an excellent software. You can control everything with ease, it integrates perfectly with Active Directory, the apps available are great, simple and just do the work.
