Not all that good

A. Shaw, Amazon
9 May 2011
  • Summary: I usually keep all my music and films on my main PC and use LAN cables to distribute it around the house. This was working well but meant that the main PC had to be kept on all the time. I thought that the USB Station 2 would enable me to get around this. Unfortunately, there were a couple of problems. I already had a couple of 1TB hard drives formatted to NTFS and I believed that they were compatible with the unit.

Not so good for macs

Jonathan M. Elliman, Amazon
1 April 2011
  • Summary: I returned this item. I was very excited about converting existing hard drives to NAS and being able to back up and stream media around the flat. Unfortunately, although the unit was neat and the software great, it just isn't suited to working with Macs. I couldn't get Time Machine working over wireless, printer sharing only works with postscript printers natively through OS X (although you could use CUPS - which was a nightmare trying to set up).

Peu fiable

David, Amazon

  • Summary: Très peu fiable: plante régulièrement. Et comme aucun bouton de redémarrage ou même d'arrêt n'est présent, on est obligé de couper l'alimentation pour le redémarrer. Résultat: clés USB ou disques durs avec des données corrompues, parfois récupérables en le branchant sur un PC, parfois pas. Au bout de nombreuses recherches (via le forum de synology) et d'essais en tous genres, j'ai finalement laissé tombé cet engin que je comptais utiliser comme solution de backup .
