This review is from: Synology DS413 Diskless System DiskStation
Pros: Good looking specs
Cons: This was my second Synology NAS. I'm very happy with the DS211j that has run without incident for 2 years now. It took about 2 hours to get this unit unpacked, drives installed and software configured with (4) 3 TB (approved) drives in RAID 6. After it was fully configured, and as the unit was conducting a background parity check, I transferred a few gigs of files on to it. When I tried to delete those files, drive #2 disappeared from the array, causing the unit to go into alarm mode, then total failure. Now, it just sits with the blue power LED blinking. Dead as a doornail. Thank goodness it failed before I put anything important on it.
Other Thoughts: Others have complained of the cheap feeling build quality of this unit. I wouldn't mind the lightweight plastic feel if the unit worked as advertised, but, alas, it doesn't.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very reliable for almost two years
Cons: Died after two years
Other Thoughts: This drive was in RAID 1 as the boot drive. Worked flawlessly up until it died, just shy of the warranty period expirationREAD FULL REVIEW
