This review is from: Synology DS413 Diskless System DiskStation
Pros: I bought this primarily to use as a high capacity network drive with redundant memory, and it has worked flawlessly since day one.
I quickly found myself exploring the server functions and successfully set it up as a VPN server to allow remote access to its files via the internet. I added 4 x 3TB hard drives configured using the Synology hybrid raid so that one disk can fail and be hot swapped for a new one without memory loss. This gives me 9TB of storage, and I can upgrade one disk at a time to 4TB drives, if needed, without issue using the hybrid raid. Synology even provides a DDNS server to facilitate remote access.
It works plug and play with a UPS so in the case of a power failure it will automatically shut down properly when battery power runs low to protect the unit.
I'll keep exploring this server's functions and find more ways to use it.
Cons: I will eventually use the security camera function, but it comes with only one license, so adding multiple cameras will get expensive.READ FULL REVIEW
