Very tough, becareful~~

Pros: interface is easy for new setup but if you plan to upgrade stay away!

Cons: 1. soon you insert a new drive it has a mandatory format.
2. spend hours try to figure out how to extend a volume man they make it impossible to do so.

Other Thoughts: stay away unless you have 2-4 of same drive same size or u will stuck with painful converting process

Great NAS!

Pros: I bought this and 4 4TB WD Reds back in June to house my Plex library and it's been smooth sailing since I brought it up.

Cons: This should not be used to Transcode, use it for storage only.

Surprise,... it doesn't work at all without ANY drive...

Pros: Works well, I have used two models Synology DS1515+ (about 2.5 years works well with 5x2TB HDD) and DS416j (2 weeks).

Cons: Everything works well .. BUT I just realized if no drives - NO SYSTEM AT ALL! Everything just GONE. SYNOLOGY, have you ever heard anything about dual BIOS or anything about flash memory at all??? Can you just keep (save) config info SOMEWHERE/ANYWHERE out of drives???

Other Thoughts: It looks like the quality control works well.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello,

The system is designed to be run with drives. The system configuration is raided across multiple disks for redundancy, so you can also migrate to another unit if you need to move forward.

Thanks,
Synology Support

Transfer speeds are top notch

Pros: - NAS reads are typically around 950Mbps (more or less pegging gigabit ethernet out)
- NAS writes with a 4 disk raid 5 are generally 700-800Mbps with some occasional dips to 500 (parity calculation backlog?)
- The unit itself is fairly quiet even when the fans are spun up
- Setup is fairly dirt simple. Install your hard drive(s), plug in power and ethernet, wait a few minutes and presto, ready to start being used (If you want a Raid 0,1,5 configuration, you'll have to create it yourself since it won't default to those, but it's not neccessarily a bad thing).

Cons: - No ethernet port bonding? (That said, for the price, not a big deal)

Other Thoughts: I have 2x Toshiba DT01ACA200 2TB drives from my previous nas, and 2x WD Red Pro 2TB drives installed in a 4 disk raid 5

Easy Setup, still waiting on the 'toolchain' for 3rd party apps

Pros: Great price vs. other Synology options, solid UI. Well worth the cost vs. a 'dumb' 4-bay enclosure such as the ones made by MediaSonic.

Cons: IF USING 3RD PARTY APPS IS CRITICAL FOR YOU, CHECK ONLINE BEFORE GETTING THIS MODEL!

- I'm a bit let down by the standard Synology apps/packages-- 'Download Station' in particular is missing some basic functionality available in PC torrent programs. I was going to go pick up Transmission, but the Armada38x toolchain hasn't been released yet so most of the 3rd party apps are extremely manual. There's no word yet on WHETHER an official toolchail will be released, or if we'll have to wait until DSM6. (but if you're down with compiling code, have fun)

-To weak to transcode. You get what you pay for, and frankly I wasn't willing to pay $500+ for an i3-based NAS that could never be upgraded, or spend the amount of time/$$ necessary to build a more flexible FreeNAS

- This DOES NOT work as an external drive connected up directly to a computer via USB. Unless you put in a lot of fiddling, you'll only be able to access this via your network. Read/write speeds haven't been a problem so far, but it's not USB3.0 blazing fast, either. (The 2 USB 3.0 ports on here are to connect a USB external drive directly to the NAS, which works intuitively. I transferred 6TB of content via USB 2.0 in two overnight batches)

Other Thoughts: I got this to house my PLEX media library, with trans-coding performed by another computer on the network, rocking a 4th generation i3. Access speeds for 1080p content haven't been an issue so far, and I have a nice way to remote into my NAS when I need it. Overall glad I got this, but limited in what I can do until 3rd party app support is provided by an official toolchain.

I felt like an idiot trying to figure this out and nothing I could find online mentioned it outright: To create a new 'root' folder on your NAS, add a "Shared Folder"

Great product

Pros: -Easy to use/quick set-p
