Synology DS213Air Diskless System DiskStation - Stop Solution for Wireless Sharing, Web Applications and Centralized Storage
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Feature rich
Pretty quiet
Nice looking

Cons: Buggy software
A little slow

Other Thoughts: Had a couple of issues with this device. First, the software has this auto "convert-thumbnail" function, that just eats away system resources if you have any picture on your shared photo folder. For example, when I upload just a single medium resolution photo, the "convert-thumbnail' process would start in the background and keep the CPU at 100% ALL THE TIME! It would only stop if I remove all photo(s) from the 'photo' folder. After much research online, I was able to find a way to kill the convert thumb process through a telnet command. But this is a temporary fix since it starts again at every reboot.

Another problem I had was every time I uploaded a large file of over 2GB (yes I enabled java), I would get a BSOD of "DPC_watchdog_violation" and my computer would crash. I called tech support and they said to call Microsoft because they don't handle BSOD errors. After an hour with Microsoft tech support, we found out that my AVG antivirus was creating a conflict with the Synology software. Upon uninstalling AVG, the problem no longer existed. I use Windows Defender now instead. I'm using Windows 8 Pro.

Pros: Ran a check with WD lifeguard software and there were no bad sectors. Purchased 2 of these for a RAID 1 setup. Works great.

Cons: Price

Pros: Quiet. Great warranty. Lots of cables. Fit perfectly in the Thermaltake chaser Mk-I case.

Cons: The 6 pin CPU cable was a little short to route thru side panel for cable management. So I just connected it directly instead.
