Contains the WD Red HDD's NAS optimised for up to 8 bays Desktop solutions, Designed for Low duty cycle environment with 3 years warranty

High-performance and floating-point unit boost efficiency

The DS214se delivers an average of over 60.49 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment, and over 98.52 MB/sec reading. The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail creation when uploading large amounts of photos or videos.

DLNA Certified media server

As a DLNA Certified DMS (Digital Media Server), DS214se can serve as your primary media server, with the capability to host digital multimedia content for local or remote playback. Once connected to a router, DS214se streams music, photos, and videos to DLNA-compliant devices, such as DLNA TVs or gaming consoles without any pre-configuration. You can even browse and select content on DS214se using DS audio and designate a DLNA player within the same local network to play it.

Hassle-free system installation

DS214se supports Web Assistant, a web-based utility to make system installation easier. Web Assistant automatically installs the latest DSM version on your Synology server, sparing you the search for the exact installation file from online. For users unfamiliar with complicated router configurations, the Synology EZ-Internet Wizard simplifies the process of setting up access to the DS214se from the Internet, and walks you through all of network settings including firewall, port-forwarding, PPPoE setup, and DDNS registration.

Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager

Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Centre lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.

Connect your data quickly and easily

Synology aims to provide you the most convenient way to enjoy all services on DS214se. With Synology QuickConnect, you don't have to deal with difficult DDNS setup. QuickConnect frees you from complicated router configuration and port-forwarding, so your entertainment and work files can be accessed on any computer, laptop, or mobile devices instantly without extra charge.

Ultimate file centre

File Station is a fast and secure feature to share and manage your files stored on DS214se. Just drag-n-drop and you can upload data from Mac or PC. Advanced filters make it easy to search for documents, photos, or videos. You can reach your files on mobile devices via DS file - a dedicated mobile app for file access, management, and sharing. HTTPS, SSL/TSL encryption, and link expiry dates also ensure file sharing over the Internet at a high security level.

The most compatible sharing

Enjoy seamless files sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms as DS214se offers comprehensive network protocol support including FTP, SMB2, AFP, NFS and WebDAV. With Windows AD and LDAP integration, DS214se can fit effortlessly into any existing network environment - there is no need for IT administrators to maintain two sets of credentials. You also won't worry about missing files with the Recycle Bin feature which is supported on AFP, CIFS, File Station, and WebDAV. All files deleted in a shared folder will be automatically moved into the Recycle Bin.

Backup data in multiple ways

No worries about data loss. DS214se is the perfect backup destination for your data, as it supports Windows Backup for Windows users, whereas Mac users enjoy native Time Machine support. You can choose your backup destination to not only be local hard disks, but also connected USB storage devices. Additionally, Backup & Replication allows you to schedule backup tasks and restore the server to any particular point in time, while still minimizing storage consumption and processing time by saving only the specific data block that has been changed between versions.

Very slow device. Died after 2yrs 3 months. No power no lights. Synology support not particularly helpful. Think it needs a new power adaptor??

First Impressions.
I read all the reviews and having had my second Buffalo (single drive) NAD fail, I decided to go for Synology as they seemed to have excellent reviews. So, firstly I like the build quality of this unit and the fact that I could have two RAID drives to whatever size I needed. I opted for 2 x 2TB Western Digital 'Red' drives.
Setting-up.
Getting the unit on the network was easy and I soon had access to it from mine and my wife's laptop. But then it all started to go wrong. As an attached drive, I created some folders from my laptop and then tried to sync my laptop 'Documents' to the 'Document' on the Synology. Bad move! It seems that you must created folders via the Synology software. However, a plead for help to Synology resulted in a telephone call form thier helpdesk and a patient guy who talked me through the process. Once I also discovered that you need a 'dedicated' folder on the Synology Drive for a folder on your own computer. So, you cannot select a second computer folder from your computer and sync it with a Synology folder that already has been used. E.g. I had a 'My Documents' on the Synology drive synced with 'Documents' on my laptop. I then wanted to add My pictures to the 'My Documents' folder on the Synology NAS and was getting more and more stressed that I could not achieve it. However, as mentioned, helpdesk was excellent and talked me through the process.

I would have given it five stars, but I think the instructions (on line) let it down are not easy to understand. As a matter of interest both my wife and I were programmers - back in the days of Cobol and Assembler when you had to specify the disk and cylinder you wanted to access, so we are both computer literate. Perhaps that was the problem?

WOW, the DSM 5 software is excellent. I really had fun setting it up. All very intuitive and am still exploring the many extra features and apps. Worked right away with Virgin Super Hub. Quieter than expected in operation....it's in my bedroom...so no problems with sleeping while it's on and doing its thing! Perhaps it's the disks I chose?... WD Red series 3yrs warranty...they're a few quid more than others. Too early to review reliability/longevity. However, more than pleased so far. It's got me interested in trying out a mail server and I'll try out its download/torrent possibilities soon.

I use a ds213j as part of my HTPC setup (Openelec + rasppi) and I love it. I had an external hdd setup previously and when it died on me just after warranty I decided to give NAS setup a go. It really does complete the HTPC experience. I bought this as my cousin, who is a computing novice, wanted a similar system.

First thing first though. This device is pretty slow and was only able to write at 30MB/s (I only had one WD red HDD installed on it, which may have affected the performance). Apart from that, both devices are identical. As someone who uses NAS alot, and as a multi-purpose device, I can justify spending £40 more to buy DS213j (you get a faster processor and twice the ram). If you're a computing novice and will only use this for saving and retrieving data, buy this device.

If you need any more help do feel free to drop a comment below. I use DS213j on a daily basis and will use DS214se fairly often to troubleshoot problems / configure it in the next coming days.

As a first time NAS buyer, I was tempted to look at the cheaper options, but given the mixed reviews decided to choose a more premium product, and I am incredibly happy, from opening the box to streaming the first movie to my TV took about 1 hour (including transfer of movie from PC). (I'd say I am of average computer literacy).

The GUI is easy to use, and best of all intuitive, the only instructions I needed to read were how to set up the QuickConnectID (you do this on the NAS itself in case you are wondering).

The Cloud Station app (you can download apps from the web interface) allows syncing with iCloud, Dropbox etc, or, you can log in remotely using the QuickConnect feature from any web browser. Once the MediaStation app is installed (takes 3-4 mins) you can stream to any UPNP or ELNA device, this was my deciding factor on choosing this box.

I coupled this with two WD Green 2TB drives, all for around £230 (May 2014).

Whilst I have only had the product for a few hours, first impressions are fantastic.

I just needed a NAS as a storage for my movies. Nothing more and nothing less. If not silent, really quiet as I have it in my living room and was terrified of my girlfriend's reaction to my new toy.
- Is it too noisy?, I asked when she came back.
- What?
and I knew I had bought the right device.

You can find more basic (and cheaper) devices from Dlink, Buffalo or Netgear, but if you read the reviews you'll see many people complain about the noise. I cannot make a direct comparison, obviously. What I can say: the Sinology is completely silent when the drives are hibernated. Hardly audible when working. Audible when the drives spin up from hibernation, which takes maybe 2-3 seconds. That's it. So, in this respect, I am very pleased.

****
Performance: I didn't need anything special. Anyway, in my configuration, I achieve 80 MB/s for a 1xGB file:
SSD > 1 Gbit/s Ethernet > Synology equipped with 2xSeagate 2TB HDs paired in Synology Hybrid RAID.
I wasn't looking for performance, but I am quite pleased too.

****
Installation: easy to install, great web-based interface, almost idiot-proof (depending obviously on the level of idiocy...)

****
Hard-disks: the enclosure is called enclosure because it comes without disks. Even if I am sure it would work with whatever HDs, I bought a model listed on the Sinology compatibility list: it costs you just a bit more time in searching, but it's not necessarily more expensive.

****
The device is primarily a NAS, but there are plenty of applications to install. From a VPN to a webserver, to an e-commerce platform to... a software that transforms your Synology in an espresso machine! I kept my Synology clean as I don't need anything.
