4 out of 5 eggs Attractive and Accessible Storage 07/28/2013

This review is from: Synology DS213j Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Installation was plug and play.
Product was easily configured to my liking with minimal references to the online manual. Default setup would have been effortless - just accept a string of prompts and let the wizard work its magic.
The two disk capacity results in a smaller number of possible configurations, but what is supported is accessible and appears to be done very well.
Mirroring was quick to set up and infrastructure rebuilding began and continued in the background without incident.
The control GUI looks like it was constructed by intelligent people, with intuitive menus and locations.
The statistics and feedback provided by the monitoring portion of the GUI are useful and pleasing to the eye.
The product wakes from standby quickly enough for all my applications thus far.

Cons: The only issues I have had so far - knock on wood - were with some of the apps available. The support forums seem to cover the quirks of these apps well enough though; you just need to be patient for the answer.

Other Thoughts: A nice, modest, consumer NAS. May seem like a bit more upfront cost, but saves on frustration and looks and feels robustly constructed.
2x Western Digital Red 3TB in RAID 1.
