Synology DS1513+ Network Storage

5 out of 5 eggs Money Well Spent 10/22/2013

This review is from: Synology DS1513+ Network Storage

Pros: Now that I have the unit back, and operating its been great. Just got my RMA back for a bad hard drive and have all 5 drives running. Using the mobile apps to monitor downloads and system performance, watch videos, among other features I have yet to get too has me extremely happy and excited for the future of this device.

Cons: The only Con that I have, doesn't really pertain to the unit I don't think, but I had a hard drive on my Desktop that I had referenced through an Apache web site in order to access my media from any PC. Thorough this unit you can either use a non IE browser with the VLC plugin to access it thought the web interface and the file station or as I am doing it right now with NetDrive which is third party software that links the data as if you were there locally. Which is working fine, its just more steps that I have to explain or setup up for my non-computer savvy friends that I allow to have access.

Other Thoughts: If your going to add the additional memory to this unit be sure to buy a DDR3 1066 type card or it will not recognize the ram.

This is what I bought the second time after reading forums on Sinology's site. Took a good bit of research since its not identified on any of there documentation as far as I could find.

3 out of 5 eggs DOA 09/26/2013

This review is from: Synology DS1513+ Network Storage

Pros: After a lot of research, and initially looking at $600 models that came with hard drives. I slowly noticed that the ones I looked at had a lot of problems. I began looking at models similar to the ds1513+ and was eventually sold on all the features and capability's options associated with this mode.

Cons: So, far since I have not really been able to play with it since according to Synology's support department based on a simple criteria my device has a broken Motherboard. So once the RMA comes back I will readjust my rating.

Other Thoughts: Note: on Synology's Support. They have a phone and email support. By going online they have a built in ticketing system. Well based on the two days I spent, they appear to operate from 9-5 M-F but they don't check or respond to emails until about 5 and appear to continue responding until 6. Nowhere in-between the 9-5 do they appear to check emails. Might be worth calling over using their built in system for quick response.

Pros: The computer is fast, good looking, and has minimal "peinstalled programs". Definately worth the money in my opinion.

Cons: The light up keyboard is in three sections, I remember reading something about 103 keys are programable so i was thinking each key could be different color. This was not the case but still awesome looking none the less. Secondly, it should have come pre-installed with intel's turbo boost for the processor. Not really a hugh deal but it wuld have been nice.

Other Thoughts: Overall, i will extremly enjoy this laptop and if the quality remains the same in the future, I will purchase more of these products.
