Most Critical Review

Constant Crashing - Bad Synology Customer Service

Synology DS416play NAS DiskStation (Diskless)
Synology DS416play NAS DiskStation (Diskless)

Pros: - Easy to setup

Cons: - Fans are loud, even on lowest setting. - Unit kept constantly crashing/having unexpected shutdowns. - Took Synology support over a month to respond to the issue. Synology support finally discovered my unit had faulty hardware. Synology offered to RMA the unit ONLY if I covered return shipping, as they classify this product as "low-end." I find this as a disgusting business practice to punish customers and make them pay for the mistakes of Synology producing and selling a faulty product.

Overall Review: - I would never recommend this product or company to anyone. - I will definitely never be purchasing from Synology again.

Supplies power; a bit loud

EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2 120-G2-1000-XR 80+ GOLD 1000W Fully Modular Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: It supplies power with no issues so far. The cables are long enough to reach everything in my case.

Cons: The fan is a bit loud. I have all Noctua fans in my system, and the fan in the power supply is the loudest in my system, even at idle. It is very noticeable.
