5 out of 5 eggsFantastic NAS

Pros: Great Performance for the Price
Fantastic UI
Easy Set Up
Good Support

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I set this up as my network storage for my house, wanting to centralize all my data. I have my fiance's Macbook Pro set to time machine to this, as well as my laptop. I have 80+ blu rays on this as well, and so far no issues. It streams well, and the apps made by Synology are fantastic.

5 out of 5 eggsBest NAS for home use

Pros: - DSM is the best GUI interface for these sorts of devices
- Fairly easy to customize with available add-on software
- Streams video/music perfectly
- AirPrint support (!)

Cons: - More expensive than other 2-bay NAS devices
- ipkg support spotty right now
- Requires a bit of technical knowledge to configure properly
- No exFat support...weak

Other Thoughts: I bought a DS1812+ at work for file sharing over a year ago, so was already familiar with Synology and DSM. This is essentially the same thing, just with less bays and a slower processor. So far, no issues. Copying files using SMB is between 80-100mb/s, AFP is around the same. I have noticed rsync is quite a bit slower. No exFat support means I had to mount an external drive on my laptop and copy the files over vs. plugging it into the USB port of the device itself. That was irritating to say the least.
