To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This unit is not what was advertised and not what was delivered. The unit was advertised with 12TB storage but it does not come with any storage and when challenged I was told sorry our advertising is wrong. The unit WILL NOT show or thumbnail all photographic files. (will not display Phase One files) The photo app will not display all size formats. The hardware works OK and as expected but not a fast unit
I have purchased this solely for playing media files and it does a excellent job at that. The set up is a little confusing bit can be worked through. If you have media files already on hard drives, they can not be swapped or installed with out erasing the content. It will reformat HD to the systems own secure specifications. My way around was to just install another Smaller HD that I would be able to do general back ups on and as for media drives use the USB HD adapter for the back of unit. A External HD will not have to be reformated and The operating system will read media files and make them available over the network. There is a bit of a learning curve with this system but definitely worth it. The 4K files are much smother when being played back. No lag or refresh for higher resolution media files.
Very pleased with the DS118 as a replacement for my previous Time Capsule. Configured this for Time Machine backups from iMac and works perfectly. Took 10 mins to configure and it has been up and running now perfectly for about one month. Love how the NAS "sleeps" when there is no computers accessing it. Highly recommended.
