Top Customer Reviews
The Synology system is not at all easy to set up I am still working on it 5 weeks after the purchase. The set up and control panel etc need to be radically simplified or have easier and simpler step by step instruction.
I assumed it will be easy to set up like Drop-box.
I also was advised to download another software to allow synchronization and back up.
I think one needs a high level of IT literacy to get the most out of this kit.
- Installed from fresh with a 3TB WD Caviar Green
- No extra services installed
- Takes 2 minutes and 15 secs to power up
- Almost 2 minutes to power down.
I think that considering it has a slimmed version of Linux managing this server is way too long for this device to become available for access.
I had previously tested the Zyxel NSA310 which may be a more simplistic version comparing it to the Synology but the Zyxel was booting within the minute if not less.
I am just hoping that there is a solution available for this concerne although I am not able to verify whether this delay is caused by some sort of disk checking at startup and shutdown that could be safely be disabled.
Maybe is just normal or is an isolated issue? Not sure about this really since the compare mentioned with the Zyxel.
It would also be nice for the fan exaust to be completely turned off when the device is in hibernate mode since I dont see a reason for this to spin when the hdd is powered down and the system board is doing absolutely nothing ?
Most of the heat is generated by the HDD which reaches 38-40 Degrees in normal read-write operation.
The interface would be a lot more fluid if was simply not combined with Java. I feel this to be a bit cluncky when operating it.
I have also not been able to see any of the Bluetooth Adapters I have connected to the back of the box, one of which is even listed in the product compatibility list.
Not found any info related to this issue neither. Bluetooth Adapter in question (the supported one) is a Belkin F8T017.
No need to say that apart the above issues everything else has been no problem or whatsoever.Read more ›
This from the Synology Online community: "OK, so I am ready to take the plunge and start setting up remote access for files mostly. I have read the manual and as a reasonable technically aware person of reasonable intelligence I am left wondering where to start. The manual seems to assume of lot of pre-knowledge that I don't have. Is there an idiot's guide anywhere please? Did a quick search but could not find anything." Which is exactly how I felt. And no, there is no simple guide and the Community's responses were hardly helpful.
I am making progress. I've transferred most of my stuff so I've got the DiskStation as an ultra-slow backup box.Read more ›
