Pros: Looks good. For the shown location for installation, I think it is designed pretty well. It works well off of MB.
Cons: I do wish this was attached with on some magnetic material. I couldn’t decide which I would like better facing up or down. Maybe it should have been designed with additional lighting so it would light both ways.
Overall Review: I would buy again. I’m considering trying to put one strip under the right side of motherboard for lighting effects. Would be easy to do because it is thin enough and lighting is on edge. Magnet mounting would make this a piece of cake.
Pros: Simple to setup. Lots of add-on software. Last Synology machine is a DS1500+. It still works but at EOL for DSM updates. This one has so much more horsepower.
Cons: They still only have 1gb Ethernet ports. Not sure it is a con, but would have like it to be faster.
Overall Review: I highly recommend. I wish that I had bought (2) while on-sale. LOL
Works fine in a Synology DS1511+
Pros: Works fine in a Synology DS1511+ DiskStation
Overall Review: Not very impressed with Newegg's shipping practices. Soft bubble pack does not give me a warm and cozy feeling when I think of all the possibilities of the package getting crushed or stepped on. I guess you are counting on the insurance to cover your cheapness... :-(
