This review is from: Synology DS413 Diskless System DiskStation
Pros: The firmware is feature rich and the unit is very reliable. Some of the features are better then some small office windows servers. I got this unit for the media features. I am able to stream my videos from the unit to xbox 360, XBMC, Windows Media Player, Apple TV, and my iOS devices with no issues.
Cons: I couldn't this the DSM console to access my router to auto configure my port forwarding rules, not a big deal. This unit is running a PowerPC CPU so Plex can't be installed on it until Plex releases a version for this type of CPU. Not a big loss as the Synology has a video that ships that just as good.
Other Thoughts: I love this unit I use it everyday as a secure file server and media server. My work blocks Netflix but they don't block my nas so I just use the web interface to work Movies and TV shows.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: They just work as needed, no issues after months of running in my nas unit.
Cons: These are not built for speed, don't expect high data transfer rates with these drives.
Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these running in a Synlogy DS413 unit. Data transfer rates hit around 40MB/s to 50MB/s. Running them for 8 months no issues.READ FULL REVIEW
