Pros: Work station board. High quality components.
Cons: This is my 10th build. I purchased this new board like the week it went on sale. I had to wait just about a month for the 4790K cpu to ship. When I finally got to assemble this very expensive motherboard problems started right away. It wouldn't accept a raid set up! After a while I pulled the board back out and notice the switches were all not set to default! Then I checked the bios and noticed there were two additional bios updates! It's brand new! Obviously poor quality control at Asus. This has damage my confidence in Asus.
Other Thoughts: I don't think its too much to expect that the switches are all set to default and that the bios is giving you a motherboard that can do all the standard functions such as raid 0 a couple of ssd's. Come on Asus....READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Synology DS413j Diskless System DiskStation
Pros: Easy. We have been using this to stream Blu-ray movies in three media rooms for a year and it is FAST (Raid 10) and never misses a beat. All our photos are on it and other documents. I have never lost a drive either. We use it to store Windows Media Center TV video copies from our HTPC.
Cons: Maybe its a little small with only 4 drives? I like Raid 10 so I'm planning on purchasing the 1813+ next. Lets face it, if this device hadn't worked so well I wouldn't be buying a new $1000.00 1813+.
Other Thoughts: I have never seen this thing stutter. The video runs smooth as silk and its all in 1080p. Thanks to Synology my first NAS experience has been fantastic. Thanks Synology. They are number one for a reason. If your having trouble with your Synology NAS, its probably you!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast. I set three of the 240's in raid 0 and my system just flies. This is definitely faster than a single ssd and now have close to a T of storage space. Just hope they last and they have so far.
Cons: none so far.
Other Thoughts: $109.00 for a 240gb ssd! What a great price for an outstanding ssd. I'm not suggesting this is the best ssd out there but with this excellent pricing its the best for me.READ FULL REVIEW
