Product Description

Size Name: 6TB | Style Name: WD RED Drives

Product Description

Synology® DiskStation DS213j is a budget-friendly 2-bay NAS server for small offices and home use, specifically designed to provide a solution for file storage and sharing with data protection for your home environment with low power consumption, quiet operation and reliability. Running on DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, it delivers ease of use and variety of features.

High-Performance Multimedia Processing with Smart Energy Management

With a RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment, Synology DS213j delivers read and write speeds of over 100MB/sec and 70MB/sec respectively, allowing you to share an entire Blu-ray quality video in less than 3 minutes. The built-in Floating-Point Unit CPU speeds up thumbnail processing to enhance photo viewing at different resolutions, while the large 512MB RAM ensures maximum speed when running multiple multimedia applications.

Synology DS213j is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Not only does it provide a large 92mm fan and smart airflow to keep the system running cool 24/7, but its noise dampening design makes it quiet compared to a public space in a library. Support for Wake on LAN/WAN, multiple scheduled power on/off, and hard drive hibernation can further reduce power consumption and operating costs.

Installation and commissioning was easy. Only giving it 3 stars for the following reasons:
It is plugged into my Netgear 1000v3-Plusnet wireless router. I am disappointed with the speed of the system from my Macbook and especially my old windows XP PC. It takes at least 10 seconds for the window to come up after log-in - by comparison typing 'Synology' into Google gives me a page in 2 seconds.
I set up Windows file share with it so I could drag and drop directories from the PC to another Windows Explorer window for the NAS. It took many days to transfer photographs and movies from my old PC through a USB Netgear wireless dongle, and I notice I have some dropouts in some of the images, so I have to repeat the whole exercise. I also have not yet attempted to work out a way to transfer photos from iPhoto on the Mac. I also tried the Mac photo updater on some non-iPhoto images - seems to work well, but havnt tried it on a seriously large set yet.
One can see from the CPU usage that it is very easy to get the diskstation's CPU to 100%, so it seems a bit underpowered.
I also uploaded some music and downloaded the Logitech Squeezebox application - this was a primary reason to use the Synology since the box could be used as a music server instead of my old PC or an old Linux box. This application works very well.
I also downloaded the security camera app for use with my wireless Watchbot. I tried to use the motion detection software in the NAS, but this completely locked it up and I had to reset it. So although I can use the NAS to see and record images from the Watchbot, I cannot yet make it do the motion detection application which I was hoping to do.
Finally, there seems to be far too many software upgrades - a bit like Windows! - shows poor maturity in the system.

This is more of a warning than a review, for reviews I would suggest looking at the DS212j on Amazon without any HDDs installed. I decided to buy the DS212j/6Tb rather than buy HDDs separately, even though it worked out slightly more expensive to do so, as I believed the HDDs would be those most suitable for use in this device.

As always my order was seamless and it arrived the very next day. I opened the NAS to see what HDDs were installed, and then checked them against the list of approved compatible drives on the manufactures website, and was surprised to find they were not listed. I queried this with Synology and they advised that they do not bundle HDDs with any of their products and that the HDDs would have been installed by Amazon or one of their suppliers.

So I raised an incident with Amazon, asking why drives not listed as compatible were installed in this device, and what that means in terms of support. I don't feel fully comfortable storing my data on a device with non-approved HDDs installed. I was advised that I would get a response within a week. After a week I got a reply saying it was still being looked into and I would a response within a few days. After another week passed, I was advised that my details would be passed on to the manufacturer and they would get in touch (I replied explaining again that the manufacturer doesn't bundle the HDDs). After *another* week, Amazon confirmed that they used only drives that are Synology's supported list. At this point I started to get angry and pointed out again, for the third time, that the drives were NOT on Synologys supported list. The issue was eventually escalated and someone from Amazons supply company called and within a couple of hours was able to confirm that the wrong HDDs had been installed in the device.

I love this piece of kit, but you have to be a bit of a nerd to be able to use it!

First thing I wanted to do (and I guess most people want to do) is do a simple backup from my home network. It took a fair amount of research to get to the point that I could do this. Figuring out how to setup an FTP server also took a bit of research.

My only criticism is that it's a little on the pricey side for what it is.

As per other reviews, simple to setup and use. Although I'm a bit more technically minded than other members of my family and friends, I appreciate it when a product has been well designed and thought out. I wanted mine for uploadin my large CD music collection to play with Sonos (removing the need to have my PC switched on for local music). It's been a doddle to upload and the interface through a web browser is very easy. If you can use Windows Explorer you can use this.

Virtually silent in operation, smaller footprint than I originally expected. Well worth the money.

A little tricky to set up. The inital set up process failed and took my internet connection with it. Once I had restored that and found out about the need to add port forwarding things went quite well. The initial set up steps need some additional notes rather than leaving people to look on the forums for information but the actual product and DSM (Disk Management System) appear great. Very quiet and reasonable transfer speeds over a wireless link for my music set up.
