This review is from: Synology DS213 Diskless System DiskStation - Simple Set-Up, Easy Efficiency
Pros: It has everything I needed plus IP Cam support, personal cloud, media server, etc. The server was quite easy to setup. Dropped in two drives, plugged it in and went through the setup process. It has many more additional apps that you can download and install to the DSM OS. Overall, I'm very happy with it. My only regret is that I wish I would have gotten a 4-bay NAS.
Cons: I didn't get 4-bays or at least the DS213+ which I believe comes with a faster processor.
Other Thoughts: When I first turned it on with the drives in place, it started making some funny noises which had me worried. But I believe this was a normal process, since they were new drives. After the noises stopped I continued with the setup and was up and running.
The DSM OS did appear to work slow in the beginning but again, it was probably because of its initial setup. Its running much quicker now.
