Synology DS213j Network Storage

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic NAS 11/27/2013

This review is from: Synology DS213j Network Storage

Pros: 1) Good processor and transfer speeds for the price
2) Easy to setup
3) Lots of good addition apps (Cloud Station, Mediawiki, Bit Torrent, etc)
4) Free DNS services from synology

Cons: 1) Some of the addition apps available to install could be documented better, but a few are so not worth removing an egg
2) Its white when all my other network gear is black so it looks a little odd. But it doesn't look bad sitting on my desk.

Other Thoughts: I think its hard to compete with the value that the 213j presents. Not world beating speeds but not bad, especially for the price. Usually around 45-60MB/s transfers. I have two 3TB WD Red drives installed and they formatted without a hitch. I was up and running inside of 45 minutes when I first set it up. The fans are so quiet I never even notice them even though it sits on top of my desk.

The app installs are excellent. I use the Mediawiki package to run my own private wiki site from the NAS to document my hobby projects. I also use a 3rd party package install of the BitTorrent Sync client on the 213j to turn it in to a sweet cloud backup station. Three months in and loving it.
