5 out of 5 eggs2 Years of of Solid Performance, and Great Support when there was a problem

Pros: Bought a DS410 nearly 2 years ago for home network backup protection and it worked flawlessly for 1 year, 10 months. (the operating GUI interface has come a long way!) One day last week, the NAS would not boot at all. Synology tech support was prompt and walked me through so troubleshooting but still no dice. Ended up exchanging the NAS with Synology (thank you 2 year warranty), swap in the old disks, and bam 15 minutes later the system is back online like nothing happened. I am sold on Synology and once this replacement DS410 bites the dust, my next NAS will be with them!

Cons: Good Guy DS410, had the grace to fail just before the warranty period expired.

Other Thoughts: As this unit is discontinued I doubt many people will read this, but get a NAS with RAID for all your photos, movies, music, files, etc! It is not worth losing cherished data such as kids photos & movies to a disk failure.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT NAS!

Pros: Small form factor.
Updated soft/firmware for larger drives 3TB+ drives.
Never failed after 6 months of ALWAYS on and heavy use.
50-70+MB/sec transfers over 1GB lan. Nice!
Can be used as a server for almost anything you'd want.
4x2TB Raid 5 setup. Just about 2 hours to create the volume.
Rock solid. Even support for an IP camera! Which I use to monitor my front door. I can even play back the video from my Nokia n900 anywhere in the world (DDNS).
I have this plugged in directly to my Network switch/router/WiFi. My Samsung TV (with WiFi) picks it up over the network and using DLNA/UPnP I can play all my music and videos direct.


FTP, HTTP, SNMP, Mail (various), Print, Surveillance (IP CAM), UPnP, iTunes, and more! I use them all.

Cons: People who don't understand what they're getting are lame.

Before posting negative reviews try doing your homework and see what it is you NEED before you get what you WANT. Why? Because the two are mutually exclusive! See Other thoughts.

Pulling the data cable from you NAS or any other disk system while it's on (meaning a RAID of some such) WILL of course blow your volume. However, you CAN recover it. IF you know what you're doing. IF.

Other Thoughts: This NAS should be used as a PERMANENT disk server. Moving around any type of 'computer' will probably cause damage. Come on! It's a NAS. Why buy it if you're going to box it up and shelve it? Pathetic.
Don't people know that TIME causes things to go from ORDER to Dis-ORDER? Even sitting in a box. If you don't USE it you LOSE it. This has been natural from the beginning of the Universe 13.7B years ago. Chaos is the fundamental system of our world. Even elemental particles* degrade over time. (*you know, the things that make up Atoms that you can't see unless you use the aftermath of the LHC to detect them).
Instead people insist on blaming a product that is misunderstood by them(selves) and continue to harp on the poor soulless machine(s) of this world instead of using the greatest computer ever (your brain) to try to comprehend the actual problem(s) which is their/your inability to learn and store basic information about what drives us as human beings. Chaos. Lean about it peeps.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little NAS

Pros: Easy to setup and configure, reliable and quick. Works great in an Active Directory setup, easy to create folder shares and apply custom security

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I set this up about 10 months ago, setup all the backups to go to this and honestly completely forgot about it! I set it up to notify me upon some sort of hardware failure, and my backups are set to notify me of any failure/incomplete backups.....I haven't had a single one.

I walked up to my off-site server location today and saw it and though man, I need to go give this thing a positive review because it's bulletproof for me so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Easy setup. The quick setup guide is easy to understand and informs the user on how to insert the hard drives. The quick setup guide then references the user to the CD-ROM setup guide. Very easy to follow all of this. The Synology program guides you through creating a volume and then the hard drive share. On total it took about 12 hours to setup 4 2TB drives. Transferring files were made faster due to the 2 USB ports on the back of the disk-station. This allow the external hard drive a much faster transfer time. Also I was able to do this with a memory card reader. The system is quiet and stays cool, something that you can monitor and even have the unit send you e-mails or text messages if certain events occur (power failure, time settings not working, etc). The unit is well made and there is some weight to it after adding the drives.

Cons: I would like to have more detailed stats on transfer rates and what not on the actual disks themselves. The unit gives stats on it's CPU, memory, and LAN usage.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend visiting:
This is a compatibility list of hard drives, UPS systems, and etc.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent NAS Device

Pros: My Synology DS410 works well with four Western Digital WD30EZRSDTL 3TB drives in a RAID5 configuration. The device is very well constructed, despite comments to the contrary in a recent review. The Synology Assistant and DiskStation Manager (DSM) software is also very good and provides way more functionality than I actually need for my HTPC system. Also, Synology technical support is just about the best that I've dealt with, and I've been a software developer for over 40 years.

Cons: It is expensive, but you get what you pay for. The only real negative was encountered during installation. The DS410 was shipped with DSM 2.3 software which didn't work with 3TB drives. More about this in "Other Thoughts". If I could take off 1/2 of an egg for this, I would.

Other Thoughts: First, to get the DS410 to work with 3TB drives (assuming yours is shipped with the older DSM 2.3 software) you need to install a smaller supported drive and proceed with the installation to the point where the latest DSM software (version 3.1-1742 when this was written) has been installed. At this point you power down the DS410, install your 3TB drive(s) and restart the installation procedure. Synology tech support provided me with this solution, and I found it on their user forum as well.

Second, as much as I like the DS410, I can't recommend the DS710+ with the DX510 expansion cabinet. The volume crashed repeatedly and I eventually returned these devices for a refund. My best guess is that there was a problem with the eSATA connection between the two boxes, since the 710+ was stable in a standalone configuration, and the documentation warns that disconnecting the eSATA cable when the devices are powered on will crash the volume.

1 out of 5 eggsSecond one worse than the first

Pros: None.

Cons: Poor quality construction, easily killed by the smallest static discharge, network connection unreliable. Overall, the DS410 is completely unreliable and untrustworthy.

The first DS410 I bought would crash and kill the array when a static discharge touched its case, so I RMAd it. The second one did the same thing, but otherwise operated as expected (able to create an array, write to it, read from it, etc).

Because of the static discharge issue, I had to spend considerable time and money building an enclosure to physically isolate the DS410 from all static discharge. I didn't like doing so, but I didn't want to return it and get hit with a restocking fee.

It is now three months later, and I finally got the time to install the DS410 and move my data to it. However, when I turn it on, there's no network connection. I've tried rebooting it several times, tried it in and out of my enclosure, tried different cables, and even tried different network switches, all without success

Other Thoughts: When I received this unit, I created a RAID5 array and tested it by reading/writing for 72 hours straight. During that testing, there were no problems.

The unit was then unplugged, packed in its retail box, and put on a shelf for three months. Now that I finally have the time to install it, I unboxed it, placed it inside the protective enclosure I built for it, and powered it up, only to find out that the network adapter no longer works.

Somehow, in the three months that it was unplugged, boxed up, and sitting on a shelf, its network adapter stopped functioning. There is no excuse for this.

This is the worst and most unreliable electronic device I've had the displeasure of dealing with. Now I'm stuck with a five hundred dollar paperweight (not to mention the expense of the enclosure and hard drives).

Avoid this piece of junk like the plague.

1 out of 5 eggsNAS not

Pros: size

Cons: It eats drives, 2 failed in two months. The software is pretty much windows only and made to talk to other Diskstations, you had better know unix if you want it to do more. To get rsync to run you have to download a different version than comes with the thing. First really disappointing product I have bought on newegg.

Other Thoughts: build your own freenas it's far more robust.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!!

Pros: Fast, Easy Setup, UI is great

Cons: May be complicated for novice users, poor documentation

Other Thoughts: This was extremely easy to set up. It only took about about 2 hours to create my RAID volume. Very quick setup very fast to access over the network. The UI is great and intuitive. It could be a bit confusing for novice users, the documentation is not very good. I stream my iPhoto library from it and my iTunes library from it and there is very little lag over the wireless network.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product with some Caveats

Pros: Fast, Decent UI but somewhat complicated due to the number of options. Decent Tech support.

Security is easy to administer - as long as you know what you're doing.

you can SSH in and muck with the Unix OS if you wish

Cons: Iphone video app doesn't work with all security options set and the system doesn't warn you of this. So if you are insecure you can upload a video (it will trans-code it on your local PC) and play it, but if you have security on then the synology iphone app (the one they created) can't play video.

No ability to import block lists (such as peerblock, etc.)

You cannot drag items from the local PC to a folder in the browser UI and have them upload.

Expect to tinker a bit.

Other Thoughts: While administration via iphone is limited, There is a decent iphone app ( not free) that lets you download bitorrent files directly to the server. The bitorrent client that is built in a simplistic, but includes a torrent search engine so you can connect via SSH or HTTPS and add a torrent from pretty much anywhere.

The system firewall is a bit off one remote app refused to work if anything was blocked by the systems firewall (like bonjour, which the system didn't use and was blocked at the router)

Some odd legacy code. If you go into the file browser one way or if you are forced to use ie6 you are limited to uploading 10 files at a time. ( ie6 - my work needs to learn the word "secure"). If you go in another way you can upload directories or whatever you want. They have 2 file system browsers one one is clearly inferior, but that is the default
