Pros: fast bootup
Cons: the only real speed i see from this drive is during boot. it does not seem to help with any games or program load times.
Other Thoughts: i think that maybe a newer motherboard is what i need to get the most from this drive. i am using a gen 1 i7(960).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Synology DS1513+ Network Storage
Pros: easy to setup, has a hard drive check to make sure that the drive you are using are not bad. I used the 5 Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2tb drives. not one bad drive. Stay away from western digital drives 1tb or bigger. i am running in raid 6, my total space is 10tb, my usable space is 6tb. i loose 4 tb for the raid 6. but i can lose two drive and still keep my data. great apps, i was able to download and install the anti-virus with very little trouble. i have it set to run every sunday. it automatic updates itself and then runs the scan. has a ton of other features that i do not use. all i needed was a place to store software, photos, video etc. They update the software/firmware about once a month. you can set it up to automatic update or send you an email letting you know that an update is ready.
Cons: i put this unit on its own UPS. i bought a Tripp Lite SMART1500LCDT 1500VA 900W UPS Back Up Smart Tower LCD AVR 120V USB Coax RJ45 and the unit does not see the UPS. I am hoping that it will at some point. i sent about 1600.00 on this unit, the drives, RAM, and the UPS. i wanted to make sure i protected it.
Other Thoughts: over all and am very happy with this unit. i wanted a fileserver without the overhead of running a server. this fits my needs to the letter. i would recommend this to anyone needing any type of network storage. be sure to read Synology website for a list of apps. it does alot more than i use it for. i set the cooling fans to the high setting and i can not heard it from accross the room. i can hear it if it is asleep and i wake it up. but is for only a couple of seconds. its not loud. Also you can access the nas from anywhere.
i also updated the RAM. the RAM's newegg item number is 9SIA0ZX1926852. this is the RAM i used for the DS1513+. its booted and saw the RAM.
