Synology DS216+II Diskless System Network - Storage

5 out of 5 eggs Love it to death 11/30/2016

This review is from: Synology DS216+II Diskless System Network - Storage

Pros: Very versatile file server with an enormous number of convenience features (I can't even begin to list them). I don't know how I lived without a file server for so long.

+ Great operating system (DSM) with great web interface
+ Intel processor for maximum application compatibility
+ Upgradeable RAM with a bit of elbow grease
+ Sleek, good looking, small form-factor
+ Highly active community with plenty of 3rd party application development
+ Can run Docker, so it can run pretty much anything
+ Decent tech support
+ Applications for Windows, Mac, etc. to interface with your Synology services. I personally love the backup solutions.

Cons: - Installing 3rd party packages can be troublesome. There are issues with trying to set up permissions for each new service, so its sometimes easier to just run everything from Docker -- this takes a bit of technical know-how.
- The stock RAM is not enough for certain use cases. Might have to shell out about $30 for a RAM upgrade.

Other Thoughts: - She does NOT like losing power unexpectedly. I'm not sure if this is appropriate as a "Con", because this is probably true of all file servers. Get yourself a UPS so it has time to shut down safely.

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Its hardware matches the description. Worked well for about 6 months.

Cons: This computer is slowly driving me insane. I've never had a machine with the types of problems this one is having.

It stutters when I'm trying to play videos.

I can't press a single button in MS word without the program freezing for 3 seconds.

Web browsers crash all the time.

It's generally just being a lemon. There is no excuse for these kinds of problems in a machines with these kinds of specs. CPU and memory usage are low, but it still runs badly. Tried a reinstall of Windows - nothing.

Looks like I'm buying ASUS next time, which is probably soon.
