Synology DX513 Diskless System Expansion Unit for Increasing Capacity of the Synology DiskStation
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy Setup.

I am updating my review because it turns out that this unit does NOT like WD green drives. Even though the drives I was using were on the Synology approved drives list they caused most of the trouble I was having with this unit and once I figured that out things went much better. I assume it has something to do with the esata connection.

Cons: Poor error reporting, it would have saved me a lot of trouble if I had gotten some indication of what was going on instead of just locking up or telling me the volume was crashed.

Other Thoughts: Once the drives issue was figured out, seems stable although still a bit slow on the volume creation functions.

Synology DX513 Diskless System Expansion Unit for Increasing Capacity of the Synology DiskStation
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks good, matches main unit well

Cons: Piece of junk.
keeps dropping all disks in expansion box (they suddenly disappear from the DSM storage manager screen).
Keeps telling me fan has failed, even though they are both running. Slows down volume creation to a crawl. Crashes the main unit (connection lost reboot)

Other Thoughts: So far I'm not impressed at all with this unit. I Suggest simply buying a larger main unit to begin with. Being able to add storage on later is a nice idea but poor execution in this case
