by far, the best purchase. ever.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was between the Synology and the Qnap. although the Qnap looks much better and seems better constructed, I decided to go for the Synology. excellent decision. it has everything you will ever need. itunes server, vpn server, cifs, nfs, download manager, integration with crashplan, Amazon glacier and so on. it works really well. very silent and discreet in the living room. bad points are a) the mess you need to go through for a potential memory upgrade -but unless you are running something really heavy you should not require it (I am only using 512 of the 1gb installed). and b) it is slightly slower than the Qnap, but with the network I have at home there is no way the bottleneck is in the synology. very happy. would buy another if I need to.
