1 out of 5 eggs Beware 11/13/2008

This review is from: Synology CS407e Diskless System 4-bay SATA NAS Server

Pros: Cheap, with promising feature set.

Cons: Poor performance, unreliable, unresponsive and perfunctory support. Software RAID is unreliable and poorly implemented. DO NOT trust the built-in RAID 5 configuration. Producer web site is misleading and you should double check which hard drives they are supporting.

Other Thoughts: Our company has had two of these devices and both have had numerous issues resulting in data lose. Synology support will not help you. They will send you an email stating that it is your problem and they cannot help. I am not sure how they have received even a passable rating here on Newegg. If you doubt the veracity of my claims, just check the forums, including Synology own forums. You will see a near epidemic of failures.
