Synology DS1513+ Network Storage
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great product 11/29/2013

This review is from: Synology DS1513+ Network Storage

Pros: I've been running a DS1511 unit for 4-ish years now. Mostly the same model since I've upgraded the firmware to latest. Has more features than I could possibly use and they all work flawlessly. Automatic backup, streaming log files from routers, remote access to services, DDNS at times, e-mail notifications, streaming security camera feeds, etc etc. Very quiet and very stable. Highly recommended.

Cons: More of a caution for older DS units: At one point I purchased the 5-bay expansion unit and went to extend my existing partition with all the space. Bit difficult and this is what caused me to upgrade the firmware. Older firmware had a 16TB (something in that range) limit and this was tied to the filesystem version. In upgrading I had to create a new volume on the expansion unit, copy all files to that, and then extend that volume across the 'old' disks. Bit of a hassle but in the end it worked and the difficulty was more in waiting for TBs of information to copy rather than actually figuring out how to do this.
