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.
I use this diskstation for six months with no issue at all. It is my cloud, I manage it, I maintain it with minimum knoldge. During the set up, please read carefully the instruction provided by the manufacturer. Thus you should not be in trouble. I have access to all my information from anywhere. It gave me really freedom. I got get ride of memory sticks. Anytime, anywhere, if I need my data it is right available for me. I put 1 TB + 500GB hard-disks in it. During last six months, the station was working 24/7. No problem so far. The only problem that you may encounter is the bandwidth of your internet provider that it is not an issue for this diskstation. I did not used streaming (video or audio), because I did not need it then I have no comments on that issue.
I am new to consumer level NAS so it did take me some learn curve to set it up. Once it is setup, I can just leave it alone to do its job. The only concern is there is not expansion for RAM which limits its usability. It is inline with the price point of a beginner NAS. I might consider to move up to next level of NAS in future once I learn how to use it.
Pros : Lots of great software for customization. Cons : Lots of software configuration to figure out and the hardware is on the slow side.
Its easy to set and it works well for light home use but the housing itself has design flaws in terms of how noisy it is, those halves it consists of arent fit together well and tight, plastic itself is thin and flimsy and that causes bunch of parasitic vibrations and noise. I wasnt into messing with those insulation strips just went for 220+ model which is way better in all departments and has no issues with noise.
It's easy to set up this product, and very stable. I have used a WD My Cloud product as a home file server. I changed my old one to this because the old one is unstable now. This is fast and stable, and it provides RAID, too. Yes, this is more expensive than the My Cloud product, but I think it deserves to invest.
It is rare to find good software with good devices. Usually one or the other gives, if not both. Synology really has a great product offering. I read my tech articles, reviews and recommendations. I am very happy with this unit, I hope it lasts me a number of years.
Grundsätzlich gutes Produkt, Handling ist gut. Performance ist unterirdisch, ich hatte die DS mit Cat7 angeschlossen, die Dauer beim Kopieren innerhalb des Netzes war nicht auszuhalten. Die Zugriffs- und Ladezeiten über die (eigentlich schönen) Apps sind noch langsamer, selbst wenn das Handy im WLAN und damit im gleichen Netz wie die DS war. Daher Rückversand. Meine Empfehlung: mietet für das Geld Platz bei einem Cloud-Anbieter, ist einfacher und besser.
I would say synology has provided a great product for a home user for NAS. Very easy to install. Easy to share and open it across Windows and Mac computers. Runs cool, not much of noise either. I use the media player from Synology to view photos and videos on TVs.... Plex server can be installed but wont really work. I just stopped plex. This model is not meant for Plex. For everything else, its awesome.
This is an excellent product. For years I was relying on western digital entry level stuff which would have limited functions and a short life span. Bought this with 2 ironwolf drives and super happy with the easy interface, easy setup and so many options. A must buy for those setting up a NAS system for home or small business
