4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value 15 April 2012
By Shane

Great piece of kit for a low end NAS solution.

I primarily use the device to stream movies to my WDTV Live and PS3. The WDTV works flawlessly, however the PS3 has trouble playing files in mkv format.

I also purchased a USB sound card for a few quid and have run the line out to the speaker system in the house. Using the DS Audio mobile app you can control whats being played from your phone which is great. There are also apps to browse the file system and an unoffical app to manage the download manager.

The software in the web interface is slick an easy to use.

I was also initially frustrated by slow file transfers and tried reformatting my external hard drive to the ext file system but in the end found that the bottle neck was my wireless connection and I noticed a vast improvement if I used a wired connection for large file transfers.

4.0 out of 5 stars It does what is supposed to do 4 July 2011
Very happy with it. Unless I had to return first unit I received due it's malfunction (continious disconnections from the network even having updated the firmware), second one I got from Amazon (really good customer service) fullfills my expectancies completely. Simple and quiet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money 23 Aug 2013
Do not waste your money on this. If it works, it doesn't work properly.

On Xbox the device is picked up, complete with folders, but none of the media actually shows. Then, it needs restarting almost every day.

To top it off, the Synology support forums are a wasteland.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not all that good 9 May 2011
By A. Shaw

I usually keep all my music and films on my main PC and use LAN cables to distribute it around the house. This was working well but meant that the main PC had to be kept on all the time. I thought that the USB Station 2 would enable me to get around this. Unfortunately, there were a couple of problems.

I already had a couple of 1TB hard drives formatted to NTFS and I believed that they were compatible with the unit. Unfortunately, when I was transferring lots of files around I found that many files were set as "hidden" after transferring. I would say about 1 file in 30 was copied this way. The files were not able to be un-hidden using the file properties dialogue box either so they had to be deleted and re-copied. Not such a big deal maybe, but after copying around a 1000 folders, I realized I'd have to go and check every single one of them. There were many tens of files effected in this way. If your PC is set to not show hidden files, you would be unaware that they were even on your system.

I decided to reformat the drives in EXT4 format (I think). This seemed to solve the hidden file problem but the thing took so long to move the data across that it really isn't worth the hassle. Before, I was getting speeds of around 50 mbs transfer but using this unit this dropped to 4 or 5 mbs. Really slooooo[...]

The drop in performance was painful and I have now disconnected the unit completely and have simply copied the files over to the other PCs, which I update when needed. This is slow but is still faster than using the USB Station.

The supplied software did work quite well though and it was easy to set everything up, but overall I was quite disappointed with the USB Station 2.

Definitely not recommended for experienced users who may already have a network set up but maybe ok for complete beginners who don't mind waiting around for a bit.
