Pros: Small footprint Fast transfer Easy Setup Nice DMS/Control Panel
Cons: None that I can find so far
Overall Review: The setup was easy. Installing the drive and then the software was a snap. Figuring out volumes, folder, users, and groups was pretty easy, but I do have some experience with that. Getting the email working took a few tries, but nothing out of the ordinary. One thing is I could not figure out how to setup the backup to an external USB drive. I emailed support and did not hear back the next morning. Called and got right through and the tech walked me through the processes. Just after that I get and email back with the instruction, it was nicer to have the guy on the phone to answer questions. We are using this with about 5 users working off it anytime, and response is good. Out old Buffalo Terastation takes forever to show files on our Macs, but our Synology shows them right away. The search in the DMS makes locating files quick on any machine since it is web based. I am really impressed. I just purchased a WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra, for my personal use. Comparing the two the Synology seems faster and the interface a little more robust, however, there is a significant price difference. I am glad I bought the WD for my person use the Synology for work. One more thing is I also purchased 2 4tb HGST 7200rpm hard drives.
