Synology DS213j Diskless System Network Storage
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Helps to be network savvy 01/08/2015

This review is from: Synology DS213j Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: A ton of options compared to my Iomega EZ Media a bit overwhelming. 2 Bays which depending on what you read may or may not be worth it as sites will tell you back up to 3 different places. Connected to my WD TV and Wife's MacBook with no issues. This unit has more options than I will probably ever use before it becomes obsolete.

Cons: Had issues with my Windows 8 running AV but none with my wife's Mac or WDTV Live. Went to the Synology forum and received no help, you would think the company monitors it but apparently they don't. Had to figure out the majority of things on my own because I hate to contact CS and tend to use search engines and forums to resolve my issues most likely a big mistake here. My AV software co. was more than helpful though and I eventually figured it out. I am not network savvy but I am persistent.

Other Thoughts: I can't take eggs away because of my inexperience.
If you don't know what you are doing choose a more idiot friendly NAS and DON'T go the the forum.
I bought a Synology approved UPS because you can read that you might loose everything due to a power outage.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast Machine.
Good Price for a dedicated Video Card
Nice Screen

Cons: Fingerprint magnet as said by others.
Track pad is a pain. Screens switching all the time even with sensitivity set low. Had to switch off track pad options just to use. Have all the latest drivers installed but still constantly getting kicked off my wireless for no reason... Updated router software and no longer have issues!

Other Thoughts: Other Thoughts: Windows 8 is obviously only good for touch screen machines which this is not. Not a fault of the machine but should be known for people looking at windows 8 as it has a bit of a learning curve. Read up on antiviruses! I ended up having to recover due to incompatibility of windows 8. Classic shell is the answer.
