5 out of 5 eggsawesome budget NAS

Pros: low cost
straight-forward configuration
very reliable
easy to remotely manage (the auto-monitoring and notification system is a godsend)

Cons: processor is slightly under-powered for what i'm asking it to do. I notice it, but none of my users do.
I have one of these installed in a remote area that frequently loses power (I know I should put an UPS on it, but, meh), and it doesnt always recover by itself. I have to manually turn it back on 1 out of 5 power losses.

Other Thoughts: I have one of these servicing data backup and network storage for small business network (4 computers). It also performs video streaming at night, everyone's very satisfied.

1 out of 5 eggsTerribly slow

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Terribly slow. Cannot get more than 4MB/s. Not worth the cost. The cloud drives - Dropbox, Google drive, On drive etc. are much better and far easier to use.

5 out of 5 eggsYou can't go wrong with Synology

Pros: I've owned Seagate & WD NAS devices and Synology is WAY better. Their upgrades are more frequent, their software levels (Apache, PHP, etc.) are current and the install process is automated. The available apps are most appreciated including DSNote, File Manager and Cloud Storage. These folks do it right.

Cons: I can't think of a single con and I'm fairly demanding.

2 out of 5 eggsSupport sucks

Pros: Decent NAS. Supports time machine.

Cons: Don't be fooled by all the apps. Only the high-end boxes have the processor power to run them.
This is basically a NAS drive with decent mirror raid support.

Other Thoughts: A recent software update practically bricked my DS211j. Synology tech support were arrogant and dismissive and flat out ignored my issue.

4 out of 5 eggsHelps to be network savvy

Pros: A ton of options compared to my Iomega EZ Media a bit overwhelming. 2 Bays which depending on what you read may or may not be worth it as sites will tell you back up to 3 different places. Connected to my WD TV and Wife's MacBook with no issues. This unit has more options than I will probably ever use before it becomes obsolete.

Cons: Had issues with my Windows 8 running AV but none with my wife's Mac or WDTV Live. Went to the Synology forum and received no help, you would think the company monitors it but apparently they don't. Had to figure out the majority of things on my own because I hate to contact CS and tend to use search engines and forums to resolve my issues most likely a big mistake here. My AV software co. was more than helpful though and I eventually figured it out. I am not network savvy but I am persistent.

Other Thoughts: I can't take eggs away because of my inexperience.
If you don't know what you are doing choose a more idiot friendly NAS and DON'T go the the forum.
I bought a Synology approved UPS because you can read that you might loose everything due to a power outage.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks Well But Slow

Pros: Disk Station Manager 5 is great and this item is inexpensive. In hindsight, it would have been worth it to spring for the faster, more expensive 2 disk model. Ultimately it gets the job done.

Cons: Transfer speeds are slow. The CPU is easily overwhelmed

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm happy with synology products. I have an 1812 for work, and this 213j has the same Disk Station Manager interface.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to use

Pros: Very easy to set up, just pop in the drives and go. Drives map to your PC very well and access to it, even remotely over the WAN is simple and straight forward. Absolutely love the fact that you can administer this device from virtually anywhere.

Cons: Some components of the software are a bit complicated at first but once all is set up, everything is a breeze to use. Wish that the drives were on trays instead of having to take the whole unit apart to get to a drive.

5 out of 5 eggsCompact, Quite, Good Support

Pros: Low power, quiet and was easy to setup. Software is quite good and very flexible. This unit makes a good backup server for Windows, Mac, or Linux. Handles external USB drives well, I'm using it with a WD MyBook and have had no issues. Perfect in a SOHO environment.

Cons: Its limited in memory and processing power so don't expect to run more than a few services at a time on it.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat's with all the bad reviews?

Pros: Truly a setup and forget it box. I had neglected to update the OS on my NAS box and found out the I could not get the box to respond to anything. After looking on the web I emailed Synology Tech Support. Several hours later Dustin K returned my email with the exact answer I needed. I followed his solution steps and he logged into my box remotely and performed his magic. No files lost and all is good, I took his advice and updated the OS immediately.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Note to self; Check the auto upgrade box !!!

4 out of 5 eggsDS213j

Pros: Feature rich, much better performance than my DNS-321 and I love the DSM interface. Reasonably priced considering the features it has. So far it is working well, with one issue that makes me slightly nervous*. See Cons...

Cons: Only getting 50Mb/s writes and 55MB/s reads on large (500MB-1GB) files, seems quite below the advertised rating but still a huge jump from my DNS-321 (8-12MB/s). The thing that makes me a little nervous is that the link lights on the lan port in the rear do not work* altho its working fine on my network. Not sure if this plays part in the reason I'm not getting the desired transfer speeds and/or if it is prelude to an upcoming hardware (lan) failure. The combination of both leads me to deduct 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: As long as it keeps working like it is, I would recommend this to others in need of a NAS with the capabilities this has.
