What it does, the stability and the price are simply stunning. A couple of years ago I envisaged having to build my own NAS as there was nothing on the market that met the spec I wanted at a reasonable price. This is pretty much the spec that I devised at a price I couldn't build one for along with all the apps to do what I need.
Along with the NAS I purchased two WD Red 2Tb hard drives and implemented Synology's proprietary RAID scheme as default. It runs quiet and cool.
It's been running for 10 days continuously now without a single glitch (I'm probably going to regret saying that now :-).)
Setup was much quicker and easier than I had expected from previous experience with a DS211j, using Synology's new web-based setup which is largely automatic and avoids the need to install Synology Assistant software from the CD. The only thing users need to be aware of is that Synology has WiFi security disabled by default: in order to prevent unauthorised access to your network, WPA2 encryption needs to be switched on and a password set as soon as the DiskStation Manager (DSM 4.1) firmware is installed and running.
Subsequent configuration is easy and intuitive, although users new to NAS in general and Synology in particular will need to do some homework on the Support section of Synology's website. The appropriate DiskStation User's Guide needs to be downloaded, and the SynologyWiki has particularly helpful tutorials for those new to setting up User Shares etc.
Quickly installed 2 3TB WD Red drives - bought as separate purchase from amazon. Easy installation.
I've now got my stuff properly backed up and with regular easy incremental backups configured too.
The Media server functions appear smooth and easy to set up too.
Not tried the Cloud server yet - one thing at a time.
No regrets over purchasing this. Think its an excellent investment to protect my data.
Most important thing with your wifi is to either switch it off if you don't actually need it or slap a security password on it otherwise you are leaving yourself wide open to uninvited visitors. As for port forwarding (where I've read mixed reviews), I found it dead simple. Worked straight away using the auto set up wizard and the advantage that I use the router provided by my broadband operator. Your mileage may vary for sure.
Overall, I now have over 900 movies and 500 TV shows visible (via a laptop) to my Apple TV, all backed up and the 13Gb of selfie type photos from my child is in my sights for backing up and removing permanently from the family laptop.
