5 out of 5 eggsSecond time was the charm!

Pros: It works and right away you've got to be excited about that! The one I sent back was not working out and this one proves it was the unit and not the user.

Cons: Can still be a little clunky at times but for what I'm using it for (backup location for Zmanda/Amanda backup software), it works just fine. Moreover, I have it full of 2-TB Western Digital Green HDDs so I'm sure I could bump up the performance if I bumped up to better drives - 7200 RPM drives should increase the speed of things....

Other Thoughts: Even with the WD Green HDDs, I experimented with using it as an NFS-mounted data-store for ESXi 5.1. It worked pretty well. I wasn't running any high-performance guests and I didn't have more than a few guests running on it at a time so I can't speak for how well it would work for a larger VMware setup. I wouldn't mind getting another one and seeing how many low-performance guests (back-office stuff like Dokuwiki, Wordpress, WSUS, WDS, etc.) I could run on it. I still plan on getting another one to keep offsite so I can have remote (cloud) storage for my backup solution. (I'm currently trying to retire our old backup solution that uses removable HDDs and Iron Mountain.) I also plan on replacing our Win 2008 Server file-server with one of these although I don't know that I'll fill up all the bays.

1 out of 5 eggsI hope I got a bad unit!

Pros: Cheap storage with RAID capabilities. Takes standard HDDs or SSDs.

Cons: This thing was messed up from the start. I hope I got a bad unit and that's the only reason. I've since submitted an RMA for a replacement unit. I've set up several other Synology devices and all have been very nice and easy to work with. This one timed out during the setup process. It times out during most mundane tasks once you're logged in. It timed out while setting up the NICs and I had to factory reset it. However, one of the NICs still had the static IP on it while the other had been reset like a factory reset is supposed to do. I told it to reboot but it wouldn't. I told it to shutdown but it wouldn't. When I finally got it to reboot, it took 10-15 minutes for it to come back up. It complains of bad sectors on the internal HDD but I can't replace it so it there's nothing I can do about. It complained about bad sectors on my HDDs in the array but I replaced those and all was well - or so it said. Right now, I can't even get to my NFS/CIFS share even though the interface says every thing fine. I can get to the root share but it times out when you try to go deeper.

I put in a support ticked with Synology and all they take all day to get back to me. I put in the ticket on Monday morning but I didn't get their reply 'til after I went home for the day. Then I replied back and the same thing happened today - their retort after I've put in my 9 hours and went home. The wanted me to check network setting anc cables but, again, I've done this before. We use this station to set up all kinds of servers and never have any issues. Then they wanted me to get them a debug log. Per their directions, I went to grab it. However, the browser has been spinning - assuming it's still waiting on whatever command I gave it - for over 30 minutes! I cannot wait on their support to get back to me every 24 hours. I'm sending this back...

Other Thoughts: Like I've said, I've used Synology products before and I like their stuff - so long as it works. This unit has been nothing but trouble and their support has less than responsive. I'm just glad it's not in production yet. I'll wait for my RMA replacement in hopes that it'll be in better shape.
