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 had two old DLINK units, and moved to this Synology because the DLINKs were no longer supported. That was very frustrating. The Synology was VERY easy to set up, and is very fast. Now that I have something to compare to, it is light years ahead of the DLINK's I was struggling along with. Very happy with my purchase!!!
I had been looking to purchase a NAS for the past few years but could not justify the cost vs. functionality. I decided to jump on a few deals I saw and reached out to a family friend and he recommended I get the DS920+. It had just been released 1 month prior and he said based on the functionality, you might as well go for the 900 models instead of the lower tier models. After doing some research and investing almost double what I was planning on investing in the first place, I can see why he recommended me to get this model.
There are a lot of limitations with 2 bay or lower tiered models that you might not notice right away, so I recommend always upsizing your NAS when purchasing for long term. I had been planning this purchase for a long time and I am using it to backup my photos, documents and media. It works great as a Plex Server and running docker containers for vpn/downloads works well. In order to use these products to their full potential you will need to understand how to do some simple programming and configure ip addresses etc. Out of the box it can still be used as a powerful backup/network tool but you wont be utilizing it to its full potential. That being said I learned everything I needed to by google searching and reading forums related to the issues I was running in to.
TLDR; Purchased as first NAS, highly recommend a 4 bay model for future expansion and the software/available features are very impressive. Only thing I would probably wish for is more ram, but that is easily added later when I need it.
...but let me talk about this SHEER performance of this device! (See what I did there?) After 20 years of using old HDDs to back-up my personal stuff, I was looking for a solution. A box that could address all of my storage and archival needs. This very sexy black box has absolutely done this and so much more! Instead of getting a network attached storage device, I got the possibility of; hosting my own WordPress domain, hosting and managing my own email and cloud based services (think Google but on your desk!) While the sheer (oops, did it again) power of this device will take some time to learn, all I can say is that I'm thoroughly impressed at the speed, performance and user interface that Synology has created here. High quality product, innovative software, sexy hardware and most of all, peace of mind that my data is safe.
Ich habe die Ersteinrichtung durchgeführt, habe zwei SSD als Raid 1 definiert um eine möglichst hohe Ausfallsicherheit zu haben, habe das Update des DSM durchführen lassen...nach ca. 30 Minuten "blue screen mit Ihre NAS wird neu gestartet" habe ich versucht die NAS manuell neu zu starten, das hat alles nichts gebracht, sie ist einfach eingefroren und keine Knöpfe haben funktioniert. Daraufhin habe ich sie stehen gelassen - es stand ja "Bitte schalten Sie das Gerät nicht aus". Habe dann mit dem Support telefoniert, dieser meinte Hard Reset über Knopf. Dann kam sie nicht mehr hoch und ging leider retour!
I have been looking for a good alternative to Google Photos as they will stop offering unlimited photos storage next year. I picked Synology because it's reputation and great softwares like Moments and Photo Station,etc. This is a good deal on Black Friday sales and it's a perfect solution for having your own servers for photos and videos backup and sharing. Very easy to setup.
I won't comment too much, I tried other small cloud servers and had to send them back. They do not compare to Synology at all. This is my second Synology server and I don't regret it. This baby is packed with all kind of server applications for all your small office needs! Three words: efficient, solid and secure!
The day finally arrived where my old Synology NAS packed it in; a blue light of death. I'd known it was a possibility for a long time, we use the device fairly heavily and it was about five years old.
The off-site backup was healthy but I was hoping that I'd be able to take the disks out of the old Synology and just transfer them into the new Synology in the same drive bay positions...... AND IT WORKED!
Hurrah for Synology. The only thing that (sensibly) needed to be adjusted was the manual IP address, and other than that it's worked flawlessly.
Excellent produit! Il y a longtemps que je pensais à me procurer un NAS et je ne suis vraiment pas déçu d’avoir opté pour un Synology. Super simple à installer même pour quelqu’un qui n’est pas un expert en informatique.
