5 out of 5 eggs Perfect NAS 05/28/2014

This review is from: Synology DS1513+ Network Storage

Pros: Faster than my Windows server. This is the second one of these I've setup. We're using them primarily as file servers. They run quiet and cool. Setup time only took about 30 minutes but it took all night to format the 5 - 2TB drives I put in. For a small business needing to share files and have central storage this thing is a no-brainer. It's small, clean, and simple.

Cons: None I can think of so far.

Other Thoughts: In this box I used 5 - Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM. They seem to be running consistently at 91 degrees which is cooler than my Windows server. The hybrid RAID feature is awesome. I can have 2 disks fail at the same time and my data is still safe. Built in remote administration is nice. Remote file access with WEBDav isn't too hard to setup either as long as you can get your router to forward the ports.

Pros: Low cost, 2TB. Fast and seem to run cooler than most of my other drives which will hopefully make them last forever.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I put 5 of these into a Synology DS1513+ NAS into a hybrid RAID setup and all 5 went in perfectly, initialized, and are running cool and quiet. Its been 2 weeks running 24/7 with a couple Terabytes of data transfer and all is good!
