Ossia The estimativa IN The. Calm leave you partorisca maintain files in the independent hard walk of your computer, like this calm can access him inner yours coverage. Calm also can open the port in yours @subject and access some file anywhere has seen internet.
Although ossia the element of estimativa , ithas some quite elegant software. You can included open and modify files of Office, read pdfs, and like this on. Calm can use likes the insurance Dropbox substitute, or backup, or cloud. Enough anything one IN can do Him, calms that can do.
A downside is that there is the bit of the curve to learn. But ossia a chance with any of these devices that is full has looked. Not being any RAID; it is so only a a walk.
I plugged a SSD Bay, and taped he in. If it has had the pocolos pierce extra in some drive, could have screwed he in, but, inexplicably, any hole ( can buy the box haha). For the plenary sized walk, any subject.
Has been prepared to change out of a defender, but a stock defender is seriously calm, done like this good.
USB, But any USB3, if these subjects. No really quite horsepower for real half comunicacionales to time transcoding, but I any that.
In general, short fresh file , fast scrollings, and cariche of characteristics. The construction is has bitten it plasticky, but has solid connectors where imports. Any bad!

Has Had stirs it of has used 1TB 2.5' 15mm SATA (Any SAS) the walks of company to dip around, has imagined would dip them to use in this little IN The. One IN THE a lot of included recognise them. This work well in my server and in my cradle of USB, but no in a DS620.

Synology The material adds. Any complaint in his products, qualities or DMS YOU. But you go to leave room for the 15mm walk of class of the company, probably would owe that do sure your device can can him. I am guessing these walks consume more can that this little IN have been Him drawn to dip was?

Really easy to dip on, and the good compact measure. There was ready to be used with Car of Time in ours diverse Macs inner 10 minutes. The software are add, the hardware is basic but all want to and in an incredible prize.

A down the side is with the Seagate Ironwolf Pro 8TB the installed walk is quite noisy, easily 10dB stronger that a Capsule of Time 3TB substitutes. This company 7200RPM the walks are probably all noisy, and has no damping or isolation inside a chance to help. Some feet of hule little to take he in noise of leader quite directly to a forest of my house. Bought any isolators and this has helped to plot, unless you are dipping this thing in your basement suggests that it consider the alike solution.

Has purchased this IN THE REASON have had stirs it of old outside 2.5' the walks that chair unused. More than plugging each one which as one in individually to back on our data, has imagined can dip 4 of them to the IN THE like this can access some files any time (and by means of devices). My purpose partorisca east IN sound to have the centrical warehouse for video and of the photos familiarised, and potentially dip all the files of films in an IN The the current to the ours TVs road Chromecast.

The together mine on top of looks of 2x 1TB walks and 2x 500GB walks. One of a 1TB the walks was the variac. Fatter , but returns in a bay of walk without any modification to one IN The. It has dipped on walks that use a incumplimiento configuration, which dip all the walks to a volume that use SHR (Synology Hybrid Raid), giving me of spatial of total storage. Thus near on SHR leaves for a tolerance of pipe of failure, meaning if one drives failure, can substitute he without loss of data. For me, the this protects of the data is the good tradeoff so that has less space of available storage (ossia 3TB without protecting of data).

Like this far, all have done is to upload files the IN That it use an interface of web, which is the drop of simple/tugs . For photo, there is the utility has called Synology Canal of Photo Uploader. A difference among legislation tugging and falling files/of video of the photo to one IN THE versus that use a Canal of Photo Uploader is that the system generates a thumbnails and images of preview. Using a Canal of Photo Uploader uses the hardware to generate of your computer these files, which is much faster reason hopefully your computer specs is much bigger that one IN The' CPU/RAM. An only thing is, a Canal of Photo Uploader the software is not very stable, and will fail to upload all has selected files. For example, you will select 50 files to upload, and upload perhaps 30 of them, and give you an error for another 20. Calm then will owe that select one same 50 files and upload them again, which select to skip the files concealed is already loaded state. This time, so only can upload 10 of a rest 20, as you will owe that repeat an exercise still again to take a rest 10 has uploaded. Another that that, has no really run to any one other subjects, but a same time, has not spent long with a system another that uploading files. Once I take a film streaming has on dipped will update this description.

Amur He for travelling. In the first place it was, to good sure does not compare mine desk sized
DS916+ but his fantastic for travesía. It takes speed of horrible scrolling in wifi, 10MB/
thats the separate integer convo/investigation. Plugged In wire fence, with SMB2 like minimum, and SMB3 that max protocol, taking 100MB/s on Win 10, which is totally a lot that considers a 512RAM of MB and a Marvell dual-core CPU.
5 / 5 Lindy
A browser-has based UI in mine old DS115J was frustratingly slow. A new DS120J is a lot, very better that way. Utilisation this spinning that basic rusts behind-on warehouses for a SSDs in mine workstations. Both does a lot well thus fulfilled. My only real desire is that they would do smaller; there is to plot of empty space , squandered inside these boxes, which the unnecessarily bulky to transport among locations.
4 / 5 Rita
Has purchased a DS120j 1 Bay IN THE DiskStation (Diskless), and installed the Seagate IronWolf 4TB IN THE Inner HARD WALK HDD. Taking roughly 15 minutes to install a walk - very easy and intuitive. After connecting to the new NETGEAR
R7000 subject, fallen on a new DiskStation and has begun to do configuration of both a @subject and a DiskStation. It take the few hours to cruised by means of a DiskStation tools of interface of the user to configure a new system. A DiskStation is the unix system that has the web-interface of user of the browser. If has experience with unix systems, a DiskStation is very intuitive and easy to learn. Mostly I am using this system
the backup of mine MacBook cars - DiskStation game a lot well with macOS and TimeMachine.

Has bought this unit to consolidate stirs it of USB 2.5' disks.
Broke him out of his casings and to the equal that are SATA inner,
has populated a unit. Besides, there is 2 ethernet interface
so many is able to add (if your supports of transmission) for better
throughput and redundancy. Really like this box, and will maintain
in a lookout for SSD disks...

Has had one ageing Linksys DNS 323 of one 201 or so much and has required the substitution. So only I use it locally for documents/of films/of the photos and he excels in this
5 / 5 Twila
This unit of incredibly powerful with his functionality. Supports NFS, SMB and AFS natively.

Finally found the substitution to the capsule of Time of Apple.

Number of tentativa of the update 2
in the principle has rid an update in this description in of the marks the week and does not see a light in the daytime. Any explanation of amazon likes why any one the volume published but is by train of the rid again in of the hopes that will cross it.
Has been the synology boy of follower during several years now. I have suffered through a DSM subject and elections of poor hardware so that it was able of the take to do and work well for my purposes. That is to say my fourth unit (two is gone in retreat and or another is still in a grandson chugging was) and when has taken in the first place want to each what so bite of him. An original description is down and can read if so angled, but for this update goes the cover a subject a big plus to date and why this will be my last Synology NOSE. Quan Has purchased this unit has done so with an intention to use likes him the musician/of video/NVR server. Like The server of the works of video add with Plex, and do very that the server of musician also. A NVR was mere to pose up and where run in my first problem. With this unit concretely, can attach two cameras of IP out of a box, yes wants to attach more has to authorises to purchase to do so. It can buy these authorises individually, as he four group or like him 8 bow and is not cheap ($ 57 for 1, $ 200 for 4 or $ 370 for 8). It opens it Fulfils some people probably are that they ask that I am to complain enough with the considerations in some authorises so account. These at all more licences that leaving you to connect additional cameras in your NOSE. They no come with an external cloud or controlling service. It IS simply the load for a consolation to use YOURS CAMERAS, in YOUR NOSE, in GRANDSON, all duquel paid for out of YOUR POCKET. This in my opinion is at all more than the money takes for Synology, does not have any reason that can see so in why has to pay to do east. It can enter but it leave in that and instead movements on in another the money takes. A eSata change and port throat! Synology Announces a expandability of the same NOSE and continues in to say that you can do so it saw USB
or eSata port, a usb the port is an absolute he still, can attach in the the to anything likes him in of a port of USB and chug right to the long of. A eSata the port in or another hand is the integer another animal. Calm say you can develop it your NOSE via eSata but what any said is not that it only can do so buys the Synology bay of expansion. Any one another eSata the device attaches no only Any one when being pas recognised, not even register while it attaches. For a record, reads a fine impression and has been included in a synology website to see yes can find any one mentions of of the one of the east and so of today, was unable to find anything concealed dictates that a eSata the port is only for use with another Synology produced. I have had to to call technical support to take this nugget of information, which of course has come only afterwards has purchased his an external eSata walk concretely for use with my Synology NOSE. Honestly I Can say that I am saddened to see Synology movement in a world of Apple of propriatairianism (likes him very the world-wide) and lack of revelation. To arrive to this dry point that an only thing Synology is doing is trying to imagine was more roads to take his money of my pocket and he are for this reason that once my Synology the NOSE is has achieved the living end will be to move on in the more mark of the client centred of NOSE. Shame on you Synology, SHAME!
Only to be clear, for those considering it synology NOSE, my subject is not with a functionality of a NOSE, is with a lack of transparency in his description of product and announce. In me, they are doing all beat in prjimo calms in his lines of product to limit that can do it with a squad spent you to him once money in the and not revealing these limitations and/or attaches in of the costs before pound. Again, Shame on you synology!

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This was some updates of my original Synology that NOSE any video of current very good and was very slow. I want the but can say without the doubt that that does an update by heart that attaches a SSD is for the hides is that done the perfect. Emigrating some files of my old DS 414j was painless although the bit dulcemente. Even so I can say that that had any loss of data and for a next day has been ready to go... Yes.. I have said a next day. It was surprised also to find that a fact of updates has been required for the take to do also and so softly like the server of video. One would think that together with the prize of premium of $ 550 concealed would do it also without one updates while it does with. I am only happy that Synology has had a forethought to do he upgradeable what is something that one 414j could have used that considers that I cost me almost $ 400 when has purchased the. If you are looking for the solid out of a NOSE of boxes can consider this so one of your options but that learn that you go to do heavy streaming, especially with something that plex, will require to do some updates. In general, I give this NOSE the solid 4 stars, can have been 5 has had some updates has not been so necessary.

It attaches the few beaks, at all in outrageous here, is to 4 NOSE of bay (concealed can be it developed in 9 walks). The class of the be of clear weight in him, accommodations and the plastic frame of walk takes, but later when is uploaded with walks some savings of weights has been appreciated.

Together with walks, also installed the M2 NVMe walk for the together hides up. Later when it posing up sees that the only hide SSD maximizas a speed read, to take a better action for read and write the need of tasks to have 2 SSDs for caching. I will require to do a bit trying and researches here. I am sure any one has imagined more was already!

I unboxed in 2 minutes, is trace the walks in a void has taken quite a lot of 5 minutes and kicked in 3 minutes (any one fully posed up but accesses in an utility of enough of web hurriedly for first boot).

Will be aimed to create an account and installs DiskStation Manager. SO MUCH, after order, advanced and download your PDFs and a DS that Directs of Synology and has it ready to go. A DS that Directs setup has had to 10 account behind minute but in my unit takes 5 minutes.

A admin the interface of web of place is the very well in desktop like you His the navigation. You can install applications of Centre of Container, has the Poster of Control and the Browser of Lima in a shell' to start with was. But in the first place it go calm that Directs of Storage to pose in your walks.

Has taken this more for storage of means comunicacionales, so in max uses my new walks was with Raid 5. Taken quite a lot of 12 hours to run a control of Consistency of the Parity. But I have verified afterwards quite 2 hours and has had in that then spatial available and usable, as I have copied the few things on to start with. This can have been a case of a beginning.

In general, poses it up was easy, is not the novice but any one he sper expert. Had guides and of the cards to the long of a road to help folks new in posing in the NOSE and a Synology the together is very active for investigation.

Will attach an update later has anything the significant this considers action or experience, but so far he that says and is happy with a unit.

That is to say the powerful small boxes that mark only quite all could any never require.

No only felizmente serve arrive all my files in some clean, he he hurriedly and with each protocol has not seen never. SMB? Control. iSCSI? Control. NFS? FTP? Rsync? Yup.

With a capacity to run virtual machines (and containers of Docker!), it Was able to have take in tin of mine-hungry PC those runs 24/7 as well as the far VPS VM has paid prendi. The fine pay for him with savings to be able in and a monthly cost of a VPS.

An interface is sum . Very easy to use and very clean. It offers the tonnes of containers can install to provide several services in your point.

Sustains of client, while perhaps very sper hurriedly, am also adds. They were able in remotely fix a subject had come up with a manager of virtual machine.

This model (DS918+) also can use 16GB RAM, included although it is not officially backed. Highly it recommends to update a RAM plans on running virtual machines. I some investigation and found more the people recommended this box: Crucial 16GB Box (8GBx2) DDR3/DDR3L 1866 MT/s (PC3-14900) SODIMM Memory of 204 Pins - CT2K8G3S186DM. I have installed he without the subject and is been doing adds.

So far is very happy with this compraventa.

After one announcing of 918+ sooner this year, purchase of mine of the pose planned of the 916+ in wineries so that I have wanted a dual NVM SSD support of walk for vain improvement caching/action.

Has chosen this until the long of w/ a 4GB the updates by heart and 4 8TB IronWolf Pro Walks. There is a hardware up and current in less than 30 minutes. The installation was the breeze , is gone with SHR-1 to take one the majority of spatial while it benefits still to line. Taking awhile for a control of initial parity to complete, but all the walks have verified was.

Been using a system for the more the month now. My Mac behind until using him TimeMachine. I actuate CloudStation Synchronise race to have a cart-the dossier has synchronised shared through all the systems. Has a VPN setup so much can record so in a vain and accesses a server. I use PhotoStation to centralise some familiar photos and them available for the web that explores and sharing w/ partner and family. With far DSM has enabled, can record in a box externally and files/of the debits of download saw a web, included of organisations that usually blocks the file regulates these places of participations.

Honestly With a DSM software this NOSE can do so much more concealed cual has planned for him, but has done absolutely as well as it has expected.

Still with a IronWolf Pro directs what very report to be the walk 'noisy', this system is supremely calm and no for the listen never race. It IS so calm, in fact, this has changed some parameters of follower to run all a time to maintain some walks some fresh plus even so it do not listen it race.

Reading other descriptions have remarked that one has seen of person a blinking the blue light on restarts w/ activity very apparent - is of entity this gives a time of boxes to start with up. This blinking the blue light means a system is beginning but is in a process to verify some walks, like a lining, etc. Can take quite awhile for the one of the east to complete, especially when has the main walks and more TB, and for awhile bad can be he for hours. Only have some patience and gives a box roughly necessities of time, that is to say that calm ensure you a system is ready and will not suffer loss of data.

Has update of one 216+II this has bought he only done the week, any to give the this was roughly to be has announced. Still that finds my road but I can not say enough quite what easy in setup and use these are.

PLEX: Now it included I need to install a Plex application manually, which are easy. It downloads A Synology container of a Plex website, Intel - 64-bit (DSM +6.0), and then selects manual to install in a manager of container in Synology and chooses a container has downloaded. Sper Easy.

UPDATING: I have pulled some walks out of one 216+II and situate them directly in a 218+ and has shot well in the tool of migration. Any data or loss of account of the user. Has had to manually setup one Connect.to and dynamic DNS again to signal in this new box, but has recognised that there is the new box and takes an old one of a record. YMMV, But very earnest.

Seldom I find me writing descriptions, but these warrants of product he. I the plot of investigation, and has thought these products was a response in my solution of backup of the data. All some researches has not gone enough to warn me quite some problems was to fulfil roughly so that when researching a hardware, does not take the nexuss at all some people of problems are having with a software. I have begun once having problem and look for in my problems, founds people that has been having these subjects for up 5 years, and has taken little in any support of Synology.
In the first place, is the hardware adds and was easy to install. Taking a DSM software up and the race has not gone too difficult. Installing the applications was very easy. Pose above accounts of the user and the dossiers of action was the small more difficult, but was still in an easy box. It opens to Begin it a problem.
A software of the canal of the cloud is among a worse software has not founding never. I can appoint at least 10 another synchronises software in a planet that took it well, where this software only clearly was bad scripture. In the first place you are, a lot it has any option of backup, has only 2 subject synchronises and download only. Really? Then when you connect a machine in a dossier of action, can take weeks to take the files have uploaded. There is the limit of account of the file that causes the drastic backwards down in the product that is feigned to be the tent of data of backup of mass. If you are patient to take some files in a NOSE, then connects the second machine in an action where contains an exact copy of a data (using anterior to synchronise solutions), will find you while another week for a second machine to verify and redownload all, included although they would have to when being some exact same.
Was in the successful end takes 2 machines in an action and synchronise. Quan Has attached a 3 machine, a software of the canal of the cloud has taken a machine in his knees. These machines are all less than 3 years with mid the crown of a hardware of line. Quan Decree or annulled it one synchronises, a machine was usable again. It sacks a canal of back of cloud up, and an earth of machine when prendiendo. Voice, a software is not quite ready to run in a backdrop or when a machine is to go him. Then a next problem has aimed is ugly cape . A software has taken hanged in the file and only maintained to try on and on for the download. A lot of on-line sources have said in uninstall and reinstall a software, another said in only kill a dossier shared and create it again. Yes, this has taken other 2 weeks to take synchronised.
A bit those that days later, scope that one schemes has not taken all some later files. Yup, Another problem known the only decree is synchronising, included although a software said that everything is well . A solution again was in uninstall a software or calm one synchronises. To date, still does not have 3 connected it fully machines and synchronise. But, even so another problem has looked. Quan Has deleted files in the machine that feigns to delete, is returned later to find the state had downloaded again. At random material download that knows is deleting. I have left the material in a recycles cube to verify.
Ploughed, can pose up with everything of that, tries to create the interior of the dossier of a dossier shared in an of some machines. One synchronises the software is so ambitious, concealed can not take a dossier has appointed before kick me out of one renames and synchronise the. In an occasion, tried to rename the dossier 3 times before browser of accident of windows.
Folks, This is not an end of my problems, but will leave it there. The hardware is well, but plan on installing another software. I regret it that it goes this road, while my solution of old backup was the painful less plot.
5 / 5 Robena
He the plot of investigation, at the end bit a balloon, and sure has done a right decision.

Takes the moment to filter through all some mark to compete and models, but a DS918+ is easily or the majority of powerful boxes in this field of prize.

Has wanted to all some photos and of the videos of several holidays and cases some years, but has imagined any one of a NASes could handle that it cry effectively. A course that really separated a DS918+ of a rest was his capacity in transcode videos in a fly, with CPU very small big.

Considering Transcoding go to be one the majority of CPU the intensive task any never in the NOSE, a built-in hardware transcoder saves a day. He transcode massively 1080p-60fps GoPro videos, in my iPhone, while to the different point, in real-time and only consume 5-6% CPUs. And a fact this comes with 4gb by heart and void for SSD Hide, bad you will not be disappointed never by action.

An only another value of option that considers is a DS718+, but once calm some rudimentary quite a lot of mathematicians, will see is cheaper to buy 4x 4tb walks (12tb usable) that is to say to buy 2x 12tb (12tb usable). Sale in a fact that 2GB of the memory is not quite substantial to run Plex and services of system, very only save the small quantity that takes a DS718, and then has roads of zeros of update. With a DS918+, has bought 2x 6tb walks, and yes does not want never Bend my capacity, can buy or additional 6tb walk. That is to say awesome.

A Synology the software is fantastic and is so mere likes to install an Application of iTunes. You fulfil it is state tried and configured to do with your hardware, as you will not be in some marijuanas that likes him imagine was why PHP is not beginning for some reason. Any hair these attractions, all have been sper easy and is packed with characteristic, notifications out of a box, and included does mine with cheap Cyberpower UPS.

Can not recommend a DS918+ enough.

Desprs Buying the DS712+ in 2012, decided to take another in 2017 to pose up in the house of my mother like the solution of backup and perhaps the portal to take in his LAN and the things of fixed help in his house. A Diskstation while it already can know, is sold in the premium in one separates the been due to 1) a factor of compact form for house and SMB users, and more importantly, some customised the interface has built on Linux, known what DSM. While it runs the FreeNAS server in my house, has wanted a consolation and stability of any that has to direct a system of the backup in my mother is. A DSM software of Synology coast a premium in this consideration. A support to leave you the external adventure of Synology the ecosystem has improved since some earlier days of DSM. You can pose in of the Virtual Machines to run inner a Diskstation, and there owes the documentation has done quite using SSH and support for logging in how regulates it admin the user yes wants to interact with him that road. A SMB speeds to look to transfer quite decent in the 1 GB interface, in an order of 95 MBs/s when transferred the big file. It writes in a Diskstation in NFS the mountain has taken enough 60 MBs/s. A VPN characteristic of looks of easy server to pose up and has done well in my LAN. Some characteristic of DSM more is that it announces that robust solutions, even so... One a thing has remarked a first week is a meager speed in rsync of 5 MBs/s in the gigabit LAN. This will not be the bottleneck in synchronising my NOSE in a Diskstation in another state, but with ISPs updating his bandwidth, can result the limitation in a future. For a prize of this box, could take the fastest action that Linux of uses in hardware of merchandise, but does not have an ease of use, or a factor of the compact form that Synology has posed joint here. The update with any active new observations afterwards more the time those uses the remotely.

I have lost almost 2TB and in 2 years of the backups due to the fact that it discovered was the subject fulfilled with this NOSE. This subject is informed amply, comprising in a Synology forums. (Google Only for ynology time of control of consistency of backup of data of machine' and will see some subjects.) Apparently a Synology control of the consistency of the data causes a backup of Machine of the Time to result corrupt runs a same time like your backup. Synology The support was unwilling in significantly of help. I can not trust this NOSE.

My NOSE is died after 2 month of flawless operation. It leave only. State trying in RMA a NOSE, but Synology will not answer in my demands of support. It has been the week has rid of a RMA. When being tired of his support if your device fails.

Number of tentativa of the update 2
originally there is rid an update to this on done description the week and does not see a light of day. Any explanation of amazon as to because it does not take posted but are by train of the rid again in of the hopes that will spend it stops.
Has been the synology boy of defender partorisca several years now. I have suffered by means of a DSM subject and elections of poor hardware reason was able of the take to do and well of work partorisca my purposes. Ossia My fourth unit (two has gone partorisca retreat and an another is still in a coverage chugging was) and when I took it in the first place has has wanted each one has bitten of him. An original description is down and calm can read if like this bent, but partorisca this update goes partorisca cover a @@subject a big plus partorisca date and reason this will be my last Synology IN The. When I have purchased this unit has done like this with a intent to to use likes him the music/of video/NVR server. Like the server of the work of video adds with Plex, and work as well as the server of music also. A NVR was simple to dip up and where has run to the mine first question. With this unit specifically, can attach two camera of IP out of a box, yes wants to add calm more owe licences to purchase to do like this. These licences can be bought individually, as to four band or to the equal that to 8 band and is not economic ($ 57 for 1, $ 200 for 4 or $ 370 for 8). Now I know some people probably are that they ask that I am complaining roughly with the considerations to some authorises I so that it explain. These authorises at all more than leaving you to connect additional cameras to the yours IN The. They do not come with an external cloud or controlling service. It is simply the load for a consolation to use YOURS CAMERAS, in yours IN The, in your COVERAGE, all duquel paid partorisca out of YOUR POCKET. This in my opinion is at all more than the money grab for Synology, does not have any reason that can see like this to reason has to that pay to do east. It can go in but you leave in that and instead moves on to another money grab. A eSata transmission and port throat! Synology Announces a expandability of of the east IN The and continuous in to say that you can do so it has seen USB
or eSata port, a usb the port is an absolute he, can add to to anything likes to of a port of USB and chug right to the long of. A eSata the port in another hand is the integer another animal. You say to you it can develop your IN THE STREET eSata but that does not say is that calm so only can do like this spent the Synology bay of expansion. Any one another eSata the device attaches no only Not being recognised, not even record to the equal that has attached. For a record, has read an impression refinada and has been included to a synology put web to see yes could find any mention of of the this and like this of today, was unable to find anything concealed said that a eSata the port is so only for use with another Synology has produced. I have had to that call technical support to take that nugget of information, which of course has come so only with which have purchased an outside eSata walk specifically for use with my Synology IN The. Honradamente Can say that I am saddened to see Synology movement in a world of Apple of propriatairianism (like any one the world-wide) and lack of disclosure. To arrive to this chair to signal that an only thing Synology is doing is looking for to imagine was more ways to take his money out of my pocket and is for this reason that once my Synology IN sound has achieved to the final of life will be to move on to the frames of client of the plus centred of IN The. Shame on you Synology, SHAME!
So only to be clear, for those considering the synology IN The, my subject is not with a functionality of one IN The, is with a lack of transparency in his description of product and announcing. Mina, is doing all have beaten to close calm to his lines of product for limiting that can do with a crew spent once money in the and not developing these limitations and/or add in of the costs before hand. Again, Shame on you synology!

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This was a upgrade of the mine original Synology IN THE WHICH any video of current a lot well and was very slow. I love it but it can say without the doubt that that does a memory upgrade adding a SSD is for the hide is the done the perfect. Emigrating some files of mine old DS 414j was painless although it bite it slow. This in spite of can say that that has had any loss of data and for a next day has been ready to go... Yes.. I have said a next day. It was surprised also to find that a upgrades has done has been required for the take to do also and like this smoothly like the server of video. One would think that together with the prize of prize of $ 550 that would do it also without a upgrades likes done with. They are so only happy that Synology has had a forethought for the do upgradeable which is something that a 414j could have used that considers that I cost almost $ 400 when I purchased it. If you are looking for the solid out of a box IN can consider Him this like this one of your options but know that you go to do heavy streaming, especially with to something likes plex, will require to do a upgrades. In general, I give this IN The the solid 4 stars, can be been 5 has had a upgrades would have been no like this necessary.

Ossia The powerful little box that does so only roughly all could never need.

No only felizmente do fault arrive all my files in a coverage, he he quickly and with each protocol has not seen never. SMB? Control. iSCSI? Control. NFS? FTP? Rsync? Yup.

With a capacity to run virtual cars (and Docker containers!), it Was able to have take on tin of mine-hungry PC that careers 24/7 as well as the far VPS VM I has paid paralizaciones. Finally paid for him with savings to be able to and a monthly cost of a VPS.

An interface is sum . Very easy to use and very cleaned. It offers the tonnes of containers can install to resupply several services your coverage.

Supports of client, while perhaps very súper quickly, are also adds. They were able to remotely fix a subject has had to come up with a manager of virtual car.

This model (DS918+) also can use 16GB RAM, included although it is not officially has sustained. Highly it recommends upgrading a RAM plans on running virtual cars. The some research and found more the people recommended this box: Crucial 16GB Box (8GBx2) DDR3/DDR3L 1866 MT/s (PC3-14900) SODIMM Memory of 204 Pins - CT2K8G3S186DM. I have installed he without the @@subject and is been doing adds.

Like this far am very happy with this compraventa.

Has attached the little pics, swimming the outrageous here, is to 4 bay IN The (concealed can be developed to 9 walks). The class of the light weight seats his, houses and plastic frame of hard walk, but later when it is uploaded with walks some savings of weights has been appreciated.

Together with walks, I also installed the M2 NVMe walk for the together hides up. Later when that dipping calm on seeing that the hides of only SSD maximice a speed read, to take a better action for bed and write the tasks require have 2 SSDs still caching. I will require to do a bit trying and investigations here. They are sure any one imagined it more was already!

I unboxed in 2 minutes, is trace the walks to some spaces have taken roughly 5 minutes and kicked in 3 minutes (any fully dipped up but access to an utility of web quite quickly partorisca first bounces).

Will be aimed to create an account and install DiskStation Manager. SO MUCH, with which orders, goes advance and download your PDFs and a DS Manager of Synology and the have ready to go. A DS Manager setup has has had to that 10 account behind small but in my unit takes 5 minutes.

A admin the interface of web of place is the very a lot of desk like the navigation. You can install applications of Centre of Container, has the Poster of Control and the Browser of Lima inside a ‘shell' to begin you was. But calm in the first place will go the Manager of Storage to dip on walks.

Has taken this more for storage of means comunicacionales, as to max uses my new walks have been with Raid 5. Taking roughly 12 hours to run a control of Consistency of the Parity. But I have verified with which roughly 2 hours and has had in that then spatial available and usable, as I have copied the few things on to start with. This can have been a chance of a start.

In general, dipped up was easy, are not the novice but any he súper expert. It has had you drive and of the papers to the long of a way to help folks new to setting on the IN The and a Synology the neighbour is very active for investigation.

Will add an update later has anything significant considering action or experience, but like this far he that says and am happy with a unit.

Seldom find me writing descriptions, but these produced warrants the. The to plot of investigation, and has thought these products was a response my solution of backup of the data. All an investigation has not gone enough to warn me roughly some questions has been for to fulfil reasons when researching a hardware, any calm volume links them to all some people of questions are having with a software. I have begun once having question and looking for in my questions, has found people that has been having these subjects for verses on 5 years, and has taken little to any support of Synology.
In the first place, is the hardware adds and was easy to install. Taking a DSM software on and running has not gone too difficult. Installing the applications was very easy. Dipping on accounts of the user and the dossiers of action was the little more difficult, but has been still in an easy box. Now it begins a question.
A software of the canal of the cloud is among a worse software has there is not founding never. I can appoint at least 10 another sync software in a planet that took it well, where this software so only has been clearly bad writing. In the first place it was, really it has any option of backup, there is so only 2 way sync and download so only. Really? Then when you connect a car to a file of action, can take weeks to take the files have uploaded. There is the limit of account of the file that cause the drastic lens down in the product that is feigned to be the tent of data of backup of mass. If you are patient to take some files to one IN The, then connect the second car to an action where contains a copy esatta of a data (using leading sync solutions), will find you while another week for a second car to verify and redownload all, included although they would owe that be some esatti was.
Had achieved finally take 2 cars to an action and syncing. When I have added a 3rd car, a software of the canal of the cloud has spent a car to his knees. These cars are all less than 3 years with mid still top of a hardware of line. When I Have prendido or there is annulled a sync, a car was usable again. Fire a canal of cloud has retreated on, and an earth of car to take it. You see, a software is not quite ready to run in a background or when a car is to go them. Then a next question has aimed is ugly boss . A software has taken hanged in the file and has maintained so only try on and on for download. A lot of on-line sources have said to uninstall and reinstall a software, another has said to so only kill a file shared and the create again. Yeah, This has taken other 2 weeks to take synced.
Some those that days later, has found that a schemes has not taken all some later files. Yup, Another known question is paralización only syncing, included although a software has said that everything is well. A solution again was to uninstall a software or kill a sync. To this day, still does not have 3 cars connected and syncing. But, this in spite of another question is looked. When I have deleted it files in the car that has feigned to delete, have gone back later to find had been downloaded again. Randomly material Download that knows am deleting. I have left the material in a recycles cube to verify.
Now, yes can dip up with everything of that, tries to create the interior of file of a file shared in an of some cars. A sync the software is like this ambitious, that can not take a file appointed before I kick me out of a rename and syncs the. In an occasion, has tried to rename the file 3 times before it clashes browser of windows.
Folks, This is not an end of my questions, but will leave it there. The hardware is well, but slowly on installing another software. I complain that it goes this street, as my solution of old backup was the less painful plot.

Mina IN THE DEAD PERSON with which 2 month of flawless operation. So only it leaves to do. I have been trying RMA one IN The, but Synology will not answer to my questions of support. It have been the week there is rid of a RMA. Be tired of his support if your device fails.

After an ad of one 918+ sooner this year, has dipped mine buys foreseen of the 916+ on resists reason have has wanted a dual NVM SSD sustain of walk for improved caching/action.

Chosen this until the long of w/ a 4GB memory upgrade and 4 8TB IronWolf Pro Walks. Had a hardware on and that careers less than 30 minutes. The installation was the breeze , has gone with SHR-1 to take one the majority of spatial while still benefiting still to line. It has taken awhile for a control of initial parity to complete, but all the walks have verified was.

Been using a system for well the month now. Mina Macs behind until using TimeMachine. Have CloudStation Sync That careers to have a the transport the file has synchronised shared by means of all the systems. Has a VPN setup so much can register like this in a gone and access a server. Utilisation PhotoStation to centralise some photos familiarised and the available for the web that explores and sharing w/ partner and family. With far DSM skill, can registers to a box externally and upload/the files of download have seen a web, included of organisations that usually block to file regulate that put of actions.

Honradamente With a DSM software this IN can do Him so more than that I has planned for him, but has treated absolutely as well as I have expected.

Same with a IronWolf Pro Walks that a lot of report to be the walk 'noisy', this system is extremely calm and does not listen it never that careers. It is like this calm, in fact, that has changed some settings of defender to run all a time to maintain some walks some fresh plus this in spite of do not listen it that it runs.

Reading other descriptions am remarked that a person has seen a blinking the blue light on restarts w/ activity very apparent - is of entity that gives a time of boxes to start with up. East blinking the blue light means a system is beginning but is in a process to verify some walks, like a lining, etc. Can take quite awhile partorisca east to complete, especially when the ones of the main walks and more TB, and for awhile I means it can be a lot of hours. So only have some patience and give a box a precise time, ossia that calm ensures a system is ready and calm will not suffer loss of data.

I upgraded of one 216+II that has bought so only done the week, any that gives this has been ready to be announced. Still that finds my way but I can not say quite roughly that easy to setup and use these are.

PLEX: Now included I needs to install a Plex application manually, which is easy. It downloads a Synology container of a Plex put web, Intel - 64-bit (DSM +6.0), and then select manual to install in a manager of container in Synology and choose a container has downloaded. Súper Easy.

UPGRADING: I have pulled some walks out of one 216+II and dip his directly to a 218+ and there is very shot to the tool of migration. Any data or loss of account of the user. Has has had to that manually setup one and dynamic DNS again to signal to this new box, but has recognised that has had the new box and has take an old one of a record. YMMV, But very sincere.

Has done to plot of investigation, finally has bitten a ball, and sure has done a right decision.

Took it the moment to filter by means of all some mark to compete and models, but a DS918+ is easily one the majority of powerful box in this row of prize.

Has wanted to consolidate all some photo and of the video of several holidays and chances on some years, but has imagined any of a NASes could manage that it cry effectively. A course that really separated a DS918+ of a rest was his capacity to transcode video in a fly, with a lot of little CPU tall.

Considering Transcoding goes to be one the majority of CPU intense task any never in the IN The, a built-in hardware transcoder saves a day. He transcode massively 1080p-60fps GoPro video, to the mine iPhone, while in the different coverage, in real-time and so only eat 5-6 CPU. And a fact this comes with 4gb by heart and space for SSD Hide, mean will not be disappointed never for action.

A so only another value of option that considers is a DS718+, but once calm some quite rudimentary mathematician, will see is more economic that buy 4x 4tb walks (12tb usable) that it is to buy 2x 12tb (12tb usable). Spear in a fact that 2GB of the memory is not quite substantial to run Plex and services of system, really so only save the small quantity that takes a DS718, and then the z/the zero upgrade streets. With a DS918+, has bought 2x 6tb walks, and yes does not love never Bend my capacity, can buy an additional 6tb walk. Ossia awesome.

A Synology the software is fantastic and is like this simple likes that installs an Application of iTunes. You know it is state tried and configured to do with your hardware, as you will not be in a weeds that looks for to imagine was reason PHP is not beginning for some reason. Any hair that attractive, all has been súper easy and is packed with characteristic, notifications out of a box, and included does mine with economic Cyberpower UPS.

Can not recommend a DS918+ enough.

Ossia The long description , as I excuse me for my lack of brevity!

Has been using cloud of 3.os services of parties for the long while but over time has wanted to go my own. Perhaps they are the control freak to the respect. It have been using Dropbox, but has then changed his terms so that calm so only can connect with three different devices under a free plan. A plan has paid is quell'has bitten expensive when considering prize-for-GB. To the to Something likes him the walk of Google offers the better value but they have been broken recently and stirs it of the personal information of the people have been exposed (Dropbox has had also breaking it the few years ). They are the bit of the cynic and have subjects of confidence with megas companies of technology.

Mina setup is resulted bit it messy over time. I have had some material stored in Walk of Google (in spite of having subject of confidence), some other materials have stored in Dropbox, and included the little bit in OneDrive. It was now of consolidate, but has has wanted to do such in my terms owe that way that be with the personnel IN The. This little unit has been the addition adds !

Goes to use this for backups, as they are (among other things) then highly recommends calm does not trust so only one IN THE ONLY. I have been he advances and used Synology formed of the variety of the walk has called SHR, which is like the variant of RAID 5 take . For some purposes of of the east IN The (DS218+) is likes RAID of use 1 of some walks are mirrored and a DS218+ so only has two bays (without options of expansion). Basically, if the walk goes kaput then is less bad, so only launch the new walk in and one IN will manage Him a rest. It maintains to import this access of walk will be quell'has bitten slower of the each one writes to the disk in fact is writing to two disks, but for general purpose IN THE USE this is not a subject. In WiFi with around 400-500 Mbps the bandwidth so only takes the pair mins to move 3GB.

A reason says any to use this IN THE ONLY for the backup is reason is possible for an integer IN The to tank and spend your walks with him. Also it calms it does not want to lose your data in a chance of the fire, harm of water, any that flies your IN The, etc. For this reason am using the solution of backup of the cloud by means of Backblaze B2. I have mentioned sooner that has subject of confidence with business big and my die, but Backblaze has the quite cleaned past and calm can always put on the tone of private encryption so that it was all but impossible for Backblaze to read your data. I have found further of this his prizes are súper competitive and no-tiered, so only will touch calm so that use, which as I write ossia $ for month like the little in $ for TB. Ideally it have the second IN THE STORED in far location (likes in a house of any confidence) and use that for secondary backup, then calms does not have to that confidence 3rd cloud of service of party, but I digress.

This is to result mine 'all' the do fault and I love it! I have been he advances and has emigrated all on to mine IN The and there is annulled my byline to Dropbox and fallen all mine other services of cloud (averts of Backblaze but ossia purely for the backup and I finally manages my own IN THE Backups). It is really well it has the-tent of still stop all my data and to be in complete control of him.

Material All on that. I have created a volume has consecrated take still to Time backups of Car (sure mark that calm this has dipped the quota so much Car of the time does not eat on your integer IN The!). Also it stores all of the mine Logical Pro mixing projects here, has consecrated the bit of him for the Plex server, maintenances all my photos, music, etc here, has put on the Git server for control of source (development of software). It has dipped on Quickconnect so that I can access one IN THE remotely. Utilisation Synology Drive which leave me to treat mine IN THE ONLY likes to to something likes Dropbox. Using a smartphone/desk the application can upload/files of download. Has the second account for my band (with accessing very limited) as they also can use Synology Walk to access a band is shared file in mine IN THE remotely. We previously used Dropbox but the majority of them have not wanted to pay to have to that way that be to limit to 2GB, which is at all when it comes to store raw mixes and such, maintaining have the tonne to breathe room. My real computer is now streamlined to where the only active projects are to store in the, all concealed can be archived is in an IN The. If I want to spend something has retreated to do on he then simply copies of one IN The to my computer and go the city. With everything already am using the paralizaciones east are sure I will find even more applications for him, like the weight the server of light plus of personal database.

Ossia The fantastic solution partorisca IN The-newbies and pros equally. Basic setup is an absolute breeze but wants to undermine deep and configure it exactly to the equal that likes you calms then is free to do such. One is driven by DSM, which is Linux has based. It is accessed saws browser of web and is súper intuitive. Still if you do not have any experience in Linux will be on and that careers any time.

Originally Has gone back and advances among that IN THE to choose. A DS218+ looked pertinent but I also the easy future expansion has wanted as it has thought roughly taking a DS718+. I have then debated to go all was and that goes for a DS918+ so it can have four bays to walk immediately, but everything of of the this has begun to look too expensive. I reigned in and decided to go with a DS218+ with dual 10TB WD walks of target of focus. 10TB (Much more like ) is the pertinent abundance for my needs. With everything am doing now are not even in still and to the chair likes will be quite of the first long time like this on a remaining walk. If I outgrow this IN THE finally then will buy something more expandable and use a DS218+ like the far IN THE Backup for mine the majority of essential data (then could take use Backblaze B2).

Fast tip:

can buy IN THE WALKS of qualities for economic (this in spite of has taken he). I do not love this description to be refused to mention competitors, but often can buy WD Easystore externals for the very low cost (by means of your favourite brick and business of electronics of the mortar - just looks for 'WD Easystore'). I have bought two of a 10TB versions. You will owe that huck' a externals still pull out of a HDD inner, but is the very easy process . So only do the fast investigation on 'WD Easystore shuck' for the tutorial. Shucking Can be done in two minutes. As I write this some walks that coming interior a Easystore the unit is extremely resembled Red Digital Western. The mine has had quality very big the helium has fill walks of target of focus with 256hide of MB, and is good and robust (quite heavy, which is the good thing ). They run some same esatti firmware like Red and in almost all the appearances are some same. A big difference is that when on sale (which is often) a Easystores can be had for -$ 140-$ 160 while he 10TB WD the red will dip you behind $ 260-$ 300! An obvious taking is that for shucking you void a guarantee. Mark so only sure to run the control of diagnostic of full disk in your first walks of shucking he go this street.

To wrap this up will speak in a negatives has found like this far with a DS218+, which am a lot pocolos felizmente. A real technical question so only has had was that a ethernet boss that is coming with mine IN THE era faulty. I thought that it that it was having questions with one IN THE he but have stirs it of ethernet the bosses that dips around and once I swapped the all was a lot. An only another negative can come up with this time is that some of a documentation there is outdated. While doing a lot of setup there is appealed to Synology the documentation but these documents have not been updated in awhile and his reference old versions of DSM where the things were the pocolos different. It was not hard to imagine the things was, but really would owe that maintain his up to date documentation. If I find more I issue then I will be sure to update this description.

My current setup (which some will call overkill) is: computer ->external for Car to Time still to back on my real car. Computer ->IN The ->volume of Car of the Time for redundancy of Car of the Time. Computer ->Backblaze Unlimited for the secondary far backup of my computer (leaves unlimited space for $ ). Computer ->IN THE for tasks of server and archival backups (concealed a lot necessarily exists in my computer he) Computer ->IN The ->Backblaze B2 the backup my integer IN The (Backblaze Unlimited does not leave partorisca IN THE Backups otherwise the people would abuse). Of then I have redundancy of Car of the Time as well as the secondary backup of my real car excludes one IN The ->volume of Car of the Time of mine Backblaze B2 backup to save some money in B2.

With my be of the real computer backed up in three places (of the far) and mine IN THE having inner redundancy with dual walks and also when being backed up has seen Backblaze B2 would take it the SERIOUS (and highly HIGHLY UNLIKELY) serious of unfortunate chance for me to lose my data! With east IN THE have the peace adds of alcohol more load of another perks that has mentioned on.

Recommend!

Has purchased it DS718+ together with this bay of expansion. They are not the novice, dipped this on but has had the few questions. Synology Said they no longer support of client of the offer and are for my account. After spending $ 2500 (Synology more memory and updates of hard walks) would have expected at least to ask the few questions. This is not the good signal and both units are going right behind. It was easy to dip up and looks to do well. The unanchored technician does not have any use for any product of technology. Synology, REASON is refusing questions of initial support for such type of cost? There is taken on cup of your negation to plan calls of telephone of initial support like a First investigation of Amazon.

Update : With which three calls of telephone to a supervisor of the amazon finally has taken Synology in a telephone. I have thought Synology at least would plan the call of telephone of the support with me and would be done. Instead a Synology the representative expected to ask my questions in a something. I have not been of my computer and is been two of then looked weeks in Synologies UI. Synology Was very arrogant and said does not have time to spend/the waste that pause the clients. Say that spent of mine was in $ 2500 and adapted them are a client with on 30 years of him experience. A sinology rep said hard ST! Thats Correct curse in the client. A stars for both Amazon and Synology for this accident. I have called Amazon of first mine bank and has contested one $ 2500 load until Synology leave me to plan the call of support with them.

Number of tentativa of the update 2
in the principle has rid an update in this description in of the marks the week and does not see a light in the daytime. Any explanation of amazon likes why any one the volume published but is by train of the rid again in of the hopes that will cross it.
Has been the synology boy of follower during several years now. I have suffered through a DSM subject and elections of poor hardware so that it was able of the take to do and work well for my purposes. That is to say my fourth unit (two is gone in retreat and or another is still in a grandson chugging was) and when has taken in the first place want to each what so bite of him. An original description is down and can read if so angled, but for this update goes the cover a subject a big plus to date and why this will be my last Synology NOSE. Quan Has purchased this unit has done so with an intention to use likes him the musician/of video/NVR server. Like The server of the works of video add with Plex, and do very that the server of musician also. A NVR was mere to pose up and where run in my first problem. With this unit concretely, can attach two cameras of IP out of a box, yes wants to attach more has to authorises to purchase to do so. It can buy these authorises individually, as he four group or like him 8 bow and is not cheap ($ 57 for 1, $ 200 for 4 or $ 370 for 8). It opens it Fulfils some people probably are that they ask that I am to complain enough with the considerations in some authorises so account. These at all more licences that leaving you to connect additional cameras in your NOSE. They no come with an external cloud or controlling service. It IS simply the load for a consolation to use YOURS CAMERAS, in YOUR NOSE, in GRANDSON, all duquel paid for out of YOUR POCKET. This in my opinion is at all more than the money takes for Synology, does not have any reason that can see so in why has to pay to do east. It can enter but it leave in that and instead movements on in another the money takes. A eSata change and port throat! Synology Announces a expandability of the same NOSE and continues in to say that you can do so it saw USB
or eSata port, a usb the port is an absolute he still, can attach in the the to anything likes him in of a port of USB and chug right to the long of. A eSata the port in or another hand is the integer another animal. Calm say you can develop it your NOSE via eSata but what any said is not that it only can do so buys the Synology bay of expansion. Any one another eSata the device attaches no only Any one when being pas recognised, not even register while it attaches. For a record, reads a fine impression and has been included in a synology website to see yes can find any one mentions of of the one of the east and so of today, was unable to find anything concealed dictates that a eSata the port is only for use with another Synology produced. I have had to to call technical support to take this nugget of information, which of course has come only afterwards has purchased his an external eSata walk concretely for use with my Synology NOSE. Honestly I Can say that I am saddened to see Synology movement in a world of Apple of propriatairianism (likes him very the world-wide) and lack of revelation. To arrive to this dry point that an only thing Synology is doing is trying to imagine was more roads to take his money of my pocket and he are for this reason that once my Synology the NOSE is has achieved the living end will be to move on in the more mark of the client centred of NOSE. Shame on you Synology, SHAME!
Only to be clear, for those considering it synology NOSE, my subject is not with a functionality of a NOSE, is with a lack of transparency in his description of product and announce. In me, they are doing all beat in prjimo calms in his lines of product to limit that can do it with a squad spent you to him once money in the and not revealing these limitations and/or attaches in of the costs before pound. Again, Shame on you synology!

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION

This was some updates of my original Synology that NOSE any video of current very good and was very slow. I want the but can say without the doubt that that does an update by heart that attaches a SSD is for the hides is that done the perfect. Emigrating some files of my old DS 414j was painless although the bit dulcemente. Even so I can say that that had any loss of data and for a next day has been ready to go... Yes.. I have said a next day. It was surprised also to find that a fact of updates has been required for the take to do also and so softly like the server of video. One would think that together with the prize of premium of $ 550 concealed would do it also without one updates while it does with. I am only happy that Synology has had a forethought to do he upgradeable what is something that one 414j could have used that considers that I cost me almost $ 400 when has purchased the. If you are looking for the solid out of a NOSE of boxes can consider this so one of your options but that learn that you go to do heavy streaming, especially with something that plex, will require to do some updates. In general, I give this NOSE the solid 4 stars, can have been 5 has had some updates has not been so necessary.

It attaches the few beaks, at all in outrageous here, is to 4 NOSE of bay (concealed can be it developed in 9 walks). The class of the be of clear weight in him, accommodations and the plastic frame of walk takes, but later when is uploaded with walks some savings of weights has been appreciated.

Together with walks, also installed the M2 NVMe walk for the together hides up. Later when it posing up sees that the only hide SSD maximizas a speed read, to take a better action for read and write the need of tasks to have 2 SSDs for caching. I will require to do a bit trying and researches here. I am sure any one has imagined more was already!

I unboxed in 2 minutes, is trace the walks in a void has taken quite a lot of 5 minutes and kicked in 3 minutes (any one fully posed up but accesses in an utility of enough of web hurriedly for first boot).

Will be aimed to create an account and installs DiskStation Manager. SO MUCH, after order, advanced and download your PDFs and a DS that Directs of Synology and has it ready to go. A DS that Directs setup has had to 10 account behind minute but in my unit takes 5 minutes.

A admin the interface of web of place is the very well in desktop like you His the navigation. You can install applications of Centre of Container, has the Poster of Control and the Browser of Lima in a shell' to start with was. But in the first place it go calm that Directs of Storage to pose in your walks.

Has taken this more for storage of means comunicacionales, so in max uses my new walks was with Raid 5. Taken quite a lot of 12 hours to run a control of Consistency of the Parity. But I have verified afterwards quite 2 hours and has had in that then spatial available and usable, as I have copied the few things on to start with. This can have been a case of a beginning.

In general, poses it up was easy, is not the novice but any one he sper expert. Had guides and of the cards to the long of a road to help folks new in posing in the NOSE and a Synology the together is very active for investigation.

Will attach an update later has anything the significant this considers action or experience, but so far he that says and is happy with a unit.
5 / 5 Dale
That is to say the powerful small boxes that mark only quite all could any never require.

No only felizmente serve arrive all my files in some clean, he he hurriedly and with each protocol has not seen never. SMB? Control. iSCSI? Control. NFS? FTP? Rsync? Yup.

With a capacity to run virtual machines (and containers of Docker!), it Was able to have take in tin of mine-hungry PC those runs 24/7 as well as the far VPS VM has paid prendi. The fine pay for him with savings to be able in and a monthly cost of a VPS.

An interface is sum . Very easy to use and very clean. It offers the tonnes of containers can install to provide several services in your point.

Sustains of client, while perhaps very sper hurriedly, am also adds. They were able in remotely fix a subject had come up with a manager of virtual machine.

This model (DS918+) also can use 16GB RAM, included although it is not officially backed. Highly it recommends to update a RAM plans on running virtual machines. I some investigation and found more the people recommended this box: Crucial 16GB Box (8GBx2) DDR3/DDR3L 1866 MT/s (PC3-14900) SODIMM Memory of 204 Pins - CT2K8G3S186DM. I have installed he without the subject and is been doing adds.

So far is very happy with this compraventa.

After one announcing of 918+ sooner this year, purchase of mine of the pose planned of the 916+ in wineries so that I have wanted a dual NVM SSD support of walk for vain improvement caching/action.

Has chosen this until the long of w/ a 4GB the updates by heart and 4 8TB IronWolf Pro Walks. There is a hardware up and current in less than 30 minutes. The installation was the breeze , is gone with SHR-1 to take one the majority of spatial while it benefits still to line. Taking awhile for a control of initial parity to complete, but all the walks have verified was.

Been using a system for the more the month now. My Mac behind until using him TimeMachine. I actuate CloudStation Synchronise race to have a cart-the dossier has synchronised shared through all the systems. Has a VPN setup so much can record so in a vain and accesses a server. I use PhotoStation to centralise some familiar photos and them available for the web that explores and sharing w/ partner and family. With far DSM has enabled, can record in a box externally and files/of the debits of download saw a web, included of organisations that usually blocks the file regulates these places of participations.

Honestly With a DSM software this NOSE can do so much more concealed cual has planned for him, but has done absolutely as well as it has expected.

Still with a IronWolf Pro directs what very report to be the walk 'noisy', this system is supremely calm and no for the listen never race. It IS so calm, in fact, this has changed some parameters of follower to run all a time to maintain some walks some fresh plus even so it do not listen it race.

Reading other descriptions have remarked that one has seen of person a blinking the blue light on restarts w/ activity very apparent - is of entity this gives a time of boxes to start with up. This blinking the blue light means a system is beginning but is in a process to verify some walks, like a lining, etc. Can take quite awhile for the one of the east to complete, especially when has the main walks and more TB, and for awhile bad can be he for hours. Only have some patience and gives a box roughly necessities of time, that is to say that calm ensure you a system is ready and will not suffer loss of data.

Has update of one 216+II this has bought he only done the week, any to give the this was roughly to be has announced. Still that finds my road but I can not say enough quite what easy in setup and use these are.

PLEX: Now it included I need to install a Plex application manually, which are easy. It downloads A Synology container of a Plex website, Intel - 64-bit (DSM +6.0), and then selects manual to install in a manager of container in Synology and chooses a container has downloaded. Sper Easy.

UPDATING: I have pulled some walks out of one 216+II and situate them directly in a 218+ and has shot well in the tool of migration. Any data or loss of account of the user. Has had to manually setup one Connect.to and dynamic DNS again to signal in this new box, but has recognised that there is the new box and takes an old one of a record. YMMV, But very earnest.

Seldom I find me writing descriptions, but these warrants of product he. I the plot of investigation, and has thought these products was a response in my solution of backup of the data. All some researches has not gone enough to warn me quite some problems was to fulfil roughly so that when researching a hardware, does not take the nexuss at all some people of problems are having with a software. I have begun once having problem and look for in my problems, founds people that has been having these subjects for up 5 years, and has taken little in any support of Synology.
In the first place, is the hardware adds and was easy to install. Taking a DSM software up and the race has not gone too difficult. Installing the applications was very easy. Pose above accounts of the user and the dossiers of action was the small more difficult, but was still in an easy box. It opens to Begin it a problem.
A software of the canal of the cloud is among a worse software has not founding never. I can appoint at least 10 another synchronises software in a planet that took it well, where this software only clearly was bad scripture. In the first place you are, a lot it has any option of backup, has only 2 subject synchronises and download only. Really? Then when you connect a machine in a dossier of action, can take weeks to take the files have uploaded. There is the limit of account of the file that causes the drastic backwards down in the product that is feigned to be the tent of data of backup of mass. If you are patient to take some files in a NOSE, then connects the second machine in an action where contains an exact copy of a data (using anterior to synchronise solutions), will find you while another week for a second machine to verify and redownload all, included although they would have to when being some exact same.
Was in the successful end takes 2 machines in an action and synchronise. Quan Has attached a 3 machine, a software of the canal of the cloud has taken a machine in his knees. These machines are all less than 3 years with mid the crown of a hardware of line. Quan Decree or annulled it one synchronises, a machine was usable again. It sacks a canal of back of cloud up, and an earth of machine when prendiendo. Voice, a software is not quite ready to run in a backdrop or when a machine is to go him. Then a next problem has aimed is ugly cape . A software has taken hanged in the file and only maintained to try on and on for the download. A lot of on-line sources have said in uninstall and reinstall a software, another said in only kill a dossier shared and create it again. Yes, this has taken other 2 weeks to take synchronised.
A bit those that days later, scope that one schemes has not taken all some later files. Yup, Another problem known the only decree is synchronising, included although a software said that everything is well . A solution again was in uninstall a software or calm one synchronises. To date, still does not have 3 connected it fully machines and synchronise. But, even so another problem has looked. Quan Has deleted files in the machine that feigns to delete, is returned later to find the state had downloaded again. At random material download that knows is deleting. I have left the material in a recycles cube to verify.
Ploughed, can pose up with everything of that, tries to create the interior of the dossier of a dossier shared in an of some machines. One synchronises the software is so ambitious, concealed can not take a dossier has appointed before kick me out of one renames and synchronise the. In an occasion, tried to rename the dossier 3 times before browser of accident of windows.
Folks, This is not an end of my problems, but will leave it there. The hardware is well, but plan on installing another software. I regret it that it goes this road, while my solution of old backup was the painful less plot.

He the plot of investigation, at the end bit a balloon, and sure has done a right decision.

Takes the moment to filter through all some mark to compete and models, but a DS918+ is easily or the majority of powerful boxes in this field of prize.

Has wanted to all some photos and of the videos of several holidays and cases some years, but has imagined any one of a NASes could handle that it cry effectively. A course that really separated a DS918+ of a rest was his capacity in transcode videos in a fly, with CPU very small big.

Considering Transcoding go to be one the majority of CPU the intensive task any never in the NOSE, a built-in hardware transcoder saves a day. He transcode massively 1080p-60fps GoPro videos, in my iPhone, while to the different point, in real-time and only consume 5-6% CPUs. And a fact this comes with 4gb by heart and void for SSD Hide, bad you will not be disappointed never by action.

An only another value of option that considers is a DS718+, but once calm some rudimentary quite a lot of mathematicians, will see is cheaper to buy 4x 4tb walks (12tb usable) that is to say to buy 2x 12tb (12tb usable). Sale in a fact that 2GB of the memory is not quite substantial to run Plex and services of system, very only save the small quantity that takes a DS718, and then has roads of zeros of update. With a DS918+, has bought 2x 6tb walks, and yes does not want never Bend my capacity, can buy or additional 6tb walk. That is to say awesome.

A Synology the software is fantastic and is so mere likes to install an Application of iTunes. You fulfil it is state tried and configured to do with your hardware, as you will not be in some marijuanas that likes him imagine was why PHP is not beginning for some reason. Any hair these attractions, all have been sper easy and is packed with characteristic, notifications out of a box, and included does mine with cheap Cyberpower UPS.

Can not recommend a DS918+ enough.

Desprs Buying the DS712+ in 2012, decided to take another in 2017 to pose up in the house of my mother like the solution of backup and perhaps the portal to take in his LAN and the things of fixed help in his house. A Diskstation while it already can know, is sold in the premium in one separates the been due to 1) a factor of compact form for house and SMB users, and more importantly, some customised the interface has built on Linux, known what DSM. While it runs the FreeNAS server in my house, has wanted a consolation and stability of any that has to direct a system of the backup in my mother is. A DSM software of Synology coast a premium in this consideration. A support to leave you the external adventure of Synology the ecosystem has improved since some earlier days of DSM. You can pose in of the Virtual Machines to run inner a Diskstation, and there owes the documentation has done quite using SSH and support for logging in how regulates it admin the user yes wants to interact with him that road. A SMB speeds to look to transfer quite decent in the 1 GB interface, in an order of 95 MBs/s when transferred the big file. It writes in a Diskstation in NFS the mountain has taken enough 60 MBs/s. A VPN characteristic of looks of easy server to pose up and has done well in my LAN. Some characteristic of DSM more is that it announces that robust solutions, even so... One a thing has remarked a first week is a meager speed in rsync of 5 MBs/s in the gigabit LAN. This will not be the bottleneck in synchronising my NOSE in a Diskstation in another state, but with ISPs updating his bandwidth, can result the limitation in a future. For a prize of this box, could take the fastest action that Linux of uses in hardware of merchandise, but does not have an ease of use, or a factor of the compact form that Synology has posed joint here. The update with any active new observations afterwards more the time those uses the remotely.

I have lost almost 2TB and in 2 years of the backups due to the fact that it discovered was the subject fulfilled with this NOSE. This subject is informed amply, comprising in a Synology forums. (Google Only for ynology time of control of consistency of backup of data of machine' and will see some subjects.) Apparently a Synology control of the consistency of the data causes a backup of Machine of the Time to result corrupt runs a same time like your backup. Synology The support was unwilling in significantly of help. I can not trust this NOSE.

My NOSE is died after 2 month of flawless operation. It leave only. State trying in RMA a NOSE, but Synology will not answer in my demands of support. It has been the week has rid of a RMA. When being tired of his support if your device fails.

I have used Synology unit partorisca some time, of home partorisca subject, of small the big units. Synology Is the concept I really adds. I think that that it accommodates the plot of characteristics in the alone unit, and ossia an amazing solution partorisca users of house, SMBs and also subject big.

Has work partorisca business big partorisca some time. As I have studied Computer 30 years ago and has been doing like this of the Systems and Administrator of Coverage partorisca more than 20 years, always in the companies there is poured in developing software, am used enough to development of software and also the coverages, IN The, SANTO, etc. (I directs EMC ClarIIon, DELL Compellent, CISCO transmissions, servers, WMware half half, etc.)

has bought this last unit to actuate Active Backup for Business for the half really small, was so only the pocolos do fault and workstations would be protected.

After installing a unit and configuring Active Backup for Business, begins to fail randomly every day. Each day so only there is tasks of backup that is not treated reasons are stuck while to other tasks to complete. A lot of fulfilled are issuing a “message of unknown error” Interior, and suggestions to “Contact our Crew of Technical Support”.

Has contacted Synology Crew of Support, and with which almost the week of rear and advance with different representatives, has no applicable solution or workaround to this question.

Now have stirs it of the servers and the totally unprotected computers, and backups that could useless reason after so the failures do not have any confidence in an integrity of a data backed up.

Until today my perception of Synology was really good. I have had the pair of subjects in a past with iSCSI the aims have used to connect to the VMware half, but to the equal that was for the developer of half, has not concerned me a lot roughly that.

But today my perception of Synology has changed radically. Has the subject real and serious, has given in risk, and Synology the responses are evading his real subjects and that try to dip more weights in my final like the client. Ossia Totally unacceptable.

Say that there is a subject with a deduplication algorithm, but has not offered a lot workaround (not even in the low level) to disable deduplication until they come with the solution.
If the work fails, causes the reaction of canal of failures that will affect other future works, although it is the task to delete one of then goes to be purged because of policemen of retention. After all it begins to fail constantly. His solution for that was to take and restart an Active Backup for Business application, and attended for a next emission of an application, probably in January 2019. Ossia Also unacceptable. Also they have subject with Hard Walks that is not varied to 4K. But I surprise that it is the subject random , reason he sometimes.

Synology Is the concept adds, and Active Backup for Business is also the enormous concept, but his implementation is the real and total disaster , and support after the failures been due to his subjects is besides human imagination.

Are really sad, but Synology disappointed me to a point of any of turn. If I need the solution to back on more than a computer (any server or workstation, physicist or virtual) maintains out of Active Backup for Business. Any really is if they will not come never up with the solution.

Sad Synology…

One IN THE does not have to that NEVER lose die.
A DS1019+ failed and has given the message that one hides can not be found. Also it say had some bad sectors on disk 4. It can not recover my data :(.
A DS1019+ begins up and can access it but ossia everything . I can not initialise one hides in 2 new 1 TB SSDs has bought to substitute an old a bit that I later tried and has discovered is well according to Windows 10.
Loves turn.
Have a cost of a synology, 5 6TB WD Red Pro walks
4 1T WD black SSD.
Has squandered too much time.
Has determined that one 4 1 TB WD SSD is as well as reason can do not creating some hides?
If the walk fails has to that no free a volume. Has the transmission 6TB walk.
Has squandered too much time with east.
Go to buy something more but does not have any place for 4 1TB SSD that cost almost $ 230.
Are livid.
No shabby. One IN THE does not have to that never lose die.

A product is very good. Good value for a money but if you can not solve your questions that Youtube of use and other on-line sources, calm then is in stops to plot of hurt. The technical support is almost very existent. Included when raisins for a process to create the entrance, any yours turn and a level of expertise that has take some call them telephone and the alive cats are so only there for excusarse for the lack of a company of pertinent technical support.

Update
=======
has to that change this to the 4 star of a now. Of my original description has reconstructed a variety of scratch (recommended for Synology support). This has meant that has had to dip on all some applications again manually more than them when being upgraded automatically and retaining his settings. I that asks scrapped both Nvme walks and has gone with two, walks more expensive that it is in his cast of compatibility of the hardware. They said it that “it can have” it been a subject same although I have run with an old Nvme walks for the period to time right after reconstructing and not seeing any errors. Have has not wanted the take the casualidad.
After reconstructing all, has a lot of be stable as of 9/30/2019. I have had the failures to be able to of the pair and a lot of reboots of then without subjects.
To arrive to this point, does not have any complaint roughly he at all. Canal of sum of laws of the surveillance. Has the dossiers of pair syncing to the mine old DS213+ in the house of friends for more than redundancy. Plex Also is doing adds.

Original description
=============
has bought this to substitute mine old plus DS213+ 2 system of walk and has been excited on some options of the capacity now would have. Mina DS213+ has had 2 - 4TB walks in him that has transferred on as well as adding in 3 - 10TB walks and 2 - 512GB Nvme SSD walks.
Transferring to a new system has been without the hitch and was quite easy. Have takes so only the alone walk of an old system (RAID 1 mirrored setup) and place he in a new system and he recognised it and upgraded all some containers for mme. I have then added a 10TB walks and with which this has looked to be stable, has take a last walk of an old IN The and transferred it on. All has been I adds until the few days in.

Are in my office and gaze on to see the flashing blue light in an IN The and any activity of hard walk. They are unable to access it so that it enciphers something has been wrong and has done the holding of hard boot in a key of power for 10 seconds. It goes back up but it has aimed then that has had errors in a walk and he have required to do the control of consistency. I have left complete this and reboot and aims it found an error and need to do another control. Any @@subject that time I this, does not clear it up.
On the this, the canal of Surveillance there is prendido to do. It maintains to start with/prendiendo in the loop. I have tried uninstalling the and reinstalling the to any avail. Ossia The question of first order of then has 9 camera no longer registering .
On the this, a Nvme SSD the hides shows volume/LUN failure'. An only option has partorisca east is for the take and then the re-create. But I , warns that everything in a system can be lost and has to that agree to this. I do not want to lose everything! Still with these errors that pops on, a manager of walk tip all the walks are doing so only well.

Like this supports of contact of client by means of his ticketing the system done the week. Two business days later take the response that asks access to my system with directions on regarding the resupply to them. They are this and a receipt of next day the saying of the response does not do and for me to try the different method. I have been going back and advances for the week now with only a response of them each one another day for me to do something more. My system is still useless and my system of security is still down. Ossia Unacceptable!
If this continues to ask this piece of junk and go with another vendor that is sad has invested of then so much to some licences of cameras and hardware. But I reliability of need and service of client on all more! This type of the subject would not owe that spend almost well out of a box. And they are one of a lucky small where raisin, would have to be able to resupply fast support. You lacking in both accounts that is reason so only take 1 star.

Has had it DS1513+ for on 5 years and was solid of rock, and has had the solid comprising of as a Synology acts. It is very basic and easy to use, but also had anticipated figure and third applications of party that can be added his really law to mark almost any way loves. Has mine storing all my data and is mine Plex server of means comunicacionales with terabytes of data. This was the good upgrade of mine DS1513+, like this now can transcode 1080p and 4k contained to my computer, Roku, and TV of Apple without the glitch. A SSD caching the walk improves the also compared action to the oldest mine IN The. Highly you recommend.

Does not go to speak in an Operating system adds in Synology IN The, is one same in all Synology Consumer IN The. Mina old plus DS211j, DS211 and DS411 still take both security and YOU updates a same time. Two thumbs up for a support continued of the oldest models, with a remarkable exception of not sustaining btfrs in a DS411 that I that maintains use for backup. REASON? All some the necessary engine is included in some respective DSM.

Go to speak so only roughly the scrolling accelerates how is that it can wants to compare when choosing among different Synology models.

Has purchased a DS1618+ to upgrade of the mine old and slow DS411. Anything has has wanted to do with a DS411 spiked CPU use to 99, same scrollings of simple file (4 disk SHR-1 configuration), which there is topped on 12MB/s.
Inaugural and closing the applications was also terribly lens.

In a DS1618+ has used 3 old walks (16000 to 36000 hours) of a DS411 2 new walks more, all RED DIGITAL WESTERN 4TB in the 5x 4TB SHR-2 configuration and the alone Volume (12000GB total spatial usable) for aggregated HDD robustness of failure, has had of then 2 walks confine that they lack 1 months in a DS411 the few years behind and was to grieve able to finalise to reconstruct after a first walk fracasado when a second a (model and different mark) has failed also. To the RAID besides calms so only help you like this far, so only against HDD total failure, no with corruption or bitrot.

Was the tired speeds of scrolling would be able to achieve in 5xHDD SHR-2 configuration (the double parity means more CPU use), of then when I have moved of mine 2-bay DS211 with 2 HDD in SHR-1 mine 4-bay DS411 with 4 HDD in SHR-1, the speeds of scrolling have fallen of roughly 36MB/s to roughly 12MB/s because of a big plus CPU use. Lately this has been the ache of then now am accusing big quantities of dron the images have tent in mine IN The.

But has been blown was: the speeds of Scrolling are like this quickly like this Gigabit ethernet leave you to. I have not thought Never it see 99 use of mine GbE connection of PC. Both writing and reading of one IN The to the mine Windows 7 x64 PC SSD is roughly 100MB/s which have tried with to file of alone film.

Has had of some walks left of empty (Disk 6), used it to dip an old plus 64TB SSD has had to dip around and quell'enabled like this SSD hides. Any need to buy a paper of expansion. This in spite of when using so only a SATA SSD, the hides is limited to read operations. But to the equal that can see of a semi-detached image, a speed of constant writing of 110MB/s was done totally in a 4TB HDD. CPU The use is remained fijamente in 30 during a whole scrolling. (A difference among individual disk writes the speed is so only because tip an instant writes speed, no a bad write accelerate which usually was one same among Disks 1 to 5).

Now am considering that it adds the second GbE port to my PC, of of the east IN has Him 4 GbE port that aggregation of link of the support.

Has pleased extremely with this compraventa. More has transformative of INTERNAL power, so that has no extra of bulky external brick whose boss to be able begin him easily when achieving for behind one IN THE like the oldest models has.

Update Dec 2, 2019:
tugged until my capacity of the storage and some stars have varied... The black Friday was ours . Elected on 2x 12TB WD Red walks and swapped the in one the time to substitute the and 2TB walk. A prime minister 12TB walk to go in required 1 day of reparation of volume. A second 12TB walk to go in required the day and the half. RAID of mine resync the speed was setup for Max 2000 / Min 300. Any work. All fact to the equal that have to that. But you know, in chance perhaps... I have had the copies of the pair of all my data would owe that paste of material a defender.

August of update 13, 2019:
raisin, he 2TB green of Caviar with prójimo to 60,000hrs of the can has given punctually a dreaded 'A walk has failed' message. The explosion has been for another 10TB red. 3 days to reconstruct required because of a very odd collection of walks am using them in 1 group of storage, but do very small. SHR2 Has done his work.

Original description:
Looks the people are having questions, but has not had any with mine DS1819+. It has been right of smooth navigation out of a door. I have done some upgrades, but at all the earth that shatters.
Has added the used $ 40 Mellanox ConnectX-3 MCX312A-XCBT out of ebay. It has recognised immediately he without any glitches. I have added then 2 claves of Kingston ETC ram to take me to 32GB. Any necessary, but has loved some hides of ram. I then fill up on one IN The with five 9yr old 3.5' walks. A Green of Caviar of the pair, the pair of Seagate a when being a SSHD, and an odd ball Samsung, for the round was. Everything material that had been that seating in shelf of mine. While it take the moment for my volume to take created, search to be fast.
Crystaldiskmark Was able to do has sustained the bed of 1035MB/s and he 640MB/s write street CIFS by means of the mish mash of 10gbe devices. Ossia With five 9yr old walks in SHR1 and the hides of fat ram. Addition in 2 4tb IronWolf and 1 10tb Red to fill all some bays and now see a variety that does writes in around 750MB/s with SHR2.
Quite happy to see mine the big files in his new turn marries keys and zipping around a coverage.

Is considering A 5-bay Synology DS1517, this 6-bay DS1618 is option very better with the a lot of improved CPU to manage the intense tasks likes him run VMs and Applications, or transferring a lot of small files. A leading gene Intel Atom CPU was less able compared to a C3538 Atom in a DS1618.
An only thing I desire of mine DS1618 has is built-is 10Gbit Ethernet.
Thinks that is time for Synology to press an action envelope and direct a SMB/marries IN THE SEGMENT to the main speeds with levels 10Gbit ports.

Has had it Synology IN The with 2 disks and any SSD hides in 100mbit. This new Synology pursue in 1gb and the boy is smoking fast! A UI is one same like mine old plus DS, this in spite of, a hardware is far abler and much faster. In 1gb with the load of full coverage, some uses of system less then 20 cpu, while my old DS was pegged in 90+% cpu use and 80 use by heart.

If yours has thought of upgradinig and can burst for atleast 4 disks for raid 10, would go for him. I have finalised with 5 disks + 2 512 gb SSDs. Utilisation one 5th disk like the hot transmission. I have ordered 10tb WD RED 7200rrpm disks, and 970 PRO Samsung NVME. All the work well and is highly compatible.

Can estimate these products of villages like him 6, I . I have not had a need to contact his support of technology, as I can not speak to this appearance of his subject, but his documentation in an Internet is attentive and complete and need any technology suupport (maintains the imports are an engineer ).

Possesses it DS918+ that more has added it late he DX517 expansion. I have been that substitutes some walks in these units with 8 and 10 TB the main hard walks.

Suddenly have extra 4TB and 2TB the hard walks that dips around. You look around and you consider another device and looking in of the options of raid, has found a Synology calculator of raid. Calm basically aim you the one who SHR vs Raid 5 and another configs collected in spatial in yours IN The.

If you are not familiarised, SHR is in proprietary raid of Synology that need so only a max together transmission of spatial to resupply protect of the fault of alone walk. Control out of a hdd to the raid calculates in his place.
Can use SHR2 that resupplies 2 to the fault of walk protects.

With my five 4 TBs (again so only gathering powder) tip the harvest of 16 TB of usable space. So only like Raid 5. With 8 bays and adding 3 more 2 TB walks, take the plenary 22 TB (good is quell'has bitten less because of measure of walk in real KB vs conversion of MB added).

In a pic has attached each 4 TB collected TB and a three 2s give TB. For this the total capacity of a unit, when fill with mixed walks of 20 TB!

A unit has the tonne of characteristics that can blow was mine DS918+, like a fact has 4 NIC ports (I bonded two of will try later with more) and 2 expansion jacks for a DX517, total HDD potential: 18 hard walks (oh a class of number of the model to indicate concealed). Has three USB 3 jacks in a backside and one in a front, very useful. When I Transfer the data uses this jack for movement of double speed of mine USB 3 Cradle.

HAS the tonne of lights, but calm can the disable (Pro Tip, Poster of Control, Power/of Hardware, moves for down to FOCUSED Brightness Control. Synology Has added the last new/step how is was, any so only he dimmer).

This thing has hanged massively once fully loaded, which was easy with some group, but is very calm. I have not added any expansion to the equal that will continue to use mine DS918+ that primary but perhaps a day...

Is so only incredible to have options this day and age where all the world is in rat of band for data and of the photos. The recent holidays go back with almost 2000 big resolution pics, not even counting capture of video. Easy 5 stars.

Synology IS probably a system of BETTER NOSE and almost always the good inversion. A web-the map based DSM the software is a better available and has update constantly. A DS418 the line has ports of dual LAN to provide Aggregation of Nexus. This calm leave you to transfer data in until 226MB/s in 2 lines of Ethernet (with each line maxing was in around 110MB/s which are basically so hurriedly so Gigabit the ethernet can go).

Even so, is considering a DS418, spends one extra $ 50 and take at least a DS418play. Synology Announcing info beat it that it is confuses considers exactly what a difference is among some models (i.et. That very hard for a j, game, + suffix). In a side of product-for-side of comparisons by side, they all aim similar capacities. For example, each a DS418 the models aim that they will touch some means comunicacionales same. Even so, a DS418 any hardware transcode files of means comunicacionales ( has to take at least a DS418play for that). Although calm any one preoccupy you on DLNA transcoding, a DS418 uses the Realtek CPU duquel the ARM will not run Plex, Dockers, or probably more server future technology. A DS418play and up is based in CPU of Intel that hardware transcode, run Plex, VMware and Dockers and is issue more future-test. A CPU of Intel also provides bit it more horsepower for encryption and another activity of server. If you go to spend a money, taken at least a DS418play. If you are really in streaming, a DS918+ beat it that careers 2 4k videos simultaneously while a DS418play can only common one the time. If necessity of multiple users in current 4K videos simultaneously or wants to use a eSATA port to connect an expansion of 5 Bays DX517 NOSES, then has to spend a big bucks in a DS918+. Otherwise, A DS418play is your better bang for a buck.

I very what Synology devices, generally, and recommends and defends the typically. Even so, some prizes for some of his devices have been always the problem for me and I are seldom happy unless it can buy it has used/renewed.

Like An example, yes compare a DS118, DS218 and DS418 will remark that they all are basically a same unit with an interior of joint of same system. Realtek RTD1296 Quad-Core 1.4 GHz CPU, 1 or 2GB of RAM, USB 3.0, 1 or 2 Gigabit ethernet, etc. Of the perspective of manufacture, one 2 and 4 models of bay are only one 1 model of bay with the small bit of extra plastic and the long more backplane together. Even so one 4 model of bay is more this folds a prize!! That is to say absolutely the case of Synology taking advantage of clients that innocently think that one 4 model of bay would have to cost the bouquet of plus. No, we are speaking the little more dollars in of the plsticoes and PCB and the piece of RAM and the pair more backplane connectors and walk. Further that, has the little more the dollars have joined up in general box and the little more to ship, etc. Sad, $ 200 more for a 4 bay compares in 1 bay is one frankly fraud.

A subject still has existed with his units of expansion of his beginning. A 5 expansion of unit of bay that has hardly any interior of electronic coast almost $ 500! That is to say more realistically $ 100 value of the material in tax of typical manufacture, even so Synology fulfils the people go to be any wiser and probably will be in the pinch in all the case. If it is cheaper in simply buy another Synology that buys a unit of expansion, knows something shady entered.

It have tried the solutions of small different storage for my House and the small subject of the family, but any solution looked tried to do a road that goes it when being announced or conform my necessities. With all honesty is to be been due to my election to try to find the solution to estimate so that $ 400 for the NOSE and seeds another 4-500, at least, for the walks to pose is the plot of money. I can not begin to describe what happy is even so. That is to say the solid product . I can not speak with some uses for the server of means comunicacionales, so that I have not taken around to try these characteristic still, but for the solution of storage beat. These marks of NOSES by behind ups, storage of data, and the file these supremely easy participations and no only so that I am the computing of entity . Still for people that can any one when being no a better with computers, poses it up is sper easy and an interface of web is mere and very intuitive. The pose until the local point is supremely easy. Pose up for far access for multiple users even so, while less badly more mere that something cual a Ubuntu server, still probably will require the little half technician more concealed and contacting knows. Especially if that runs a antivirus and/or firewall while you will owe exceptions of mark for an allocution of far IP. To create the walk of far point, also will require any one the allocution of static IP or the name of field and the DDNS service.

In general even so so far, could not be happier with a product and is happy decided to spend some extra money and taken something these laws add, is easy to direct, and conforms all my necessities. I will try to return and the updates once has an occasion in text some of some characteristic of server of the half comunicacionales.

UPDATE:
As has has had now an occasion to try some of some characteristics that use this like the server of means comunicacionales. It poses some films in the and and was able in current the. My conclusion is has some bonos informative and some bad informative. It leaves to take a bad informative of a first road.

Bad informative:
If you are the adherent of Plex can be out of luck. Synology Looks Having the support interrupted by Plex for all the servers of the NOSES of the model averts those using a intel processor. According to a Plex forums, some of an old plus DS418 the models have a intel piece but almost everything of a walnut ones have a Realtek quad cores in the. It dreads very even so, found one alternating the solution will share in a good informative. One another thing expsita is there is some other services that race while it is trying calm in current HD the video can take some stuttering occasionally while has another debit or downloading enters in a fund. I am not sure if that is to say to relate in a processor or a quantity limited of the ram but I plan to attach more RAM in one approaches the future there is also has enabled recently a ethernet port aggregation and will try to see if this a lot of difference also. Note: the aggregation of the True port only will do has subject conceal retreated the. Has the nexuss of balance of the Load but he are not a same like port aggregation. retest After these modifications and the backside to inform again with another update.

Very Informative:
A good informative expsito is, even so there some are stuttering is quite easy to do around he for prender roughly of a backside in the services can have run while tyring in streaming video, which, while his no ideal, not fulfilling to be that big of the roads given a point of the prize compared in other solutions. A port aggregation has enabled recently together with my plan to augment a RAM included can resolve this subject. An another sake the informative is, for those of you concealed does not have your heart posed in Plex, has an application for an Amazon FireStick has nicknamed Archos those looks to do very well in my opinion. You can explore all your dossiers in a look of the server in photograph, musician of game, and video of current. So far have only the tried this while streaming in my local point and has not tried still far streaming that uses this application. It has had once an occasion again will inform behind with another update.

First-NOSE of time implementor. It IS very very when has the location has centralised to store personal content safely and be able to access he in any device, of anywhere. It IS also wonderful to learn, in the RAID1 configuration, if one of some walks fails, a data is not stray. I have purchased two 4TB Seagate IronWolf walks for this product and I are very happy.

Synology Besieges of the support is well, with a lot of useful information. I recommend to go there to see say, some differences among a DS218, DS218play, DS218j.

A thing that is to take to beat, and the real treats, the need converses with the expert of NOSE, any problem, is there. Also it can rid the entrance, well of in a poster of control of a NOSE.

Initial setup was very easy - perhaps too easy. I have finished with the configuration of redundancy that the law very prende beginners (shr) when has very wanted to RAID1. Before planting any data in a walk, the fast cat with support, and learnt that it would require to do to change he in RAID1.

Then I inquired cual in the this would be required to map the card of walk of the Win10 client in a NOSE. The cat has saved a day.

I very cual an ease to download some Applications of Android to use in my mobile phone to access a NOSE.

Functionality? A tonne of him in the very small enclosure. Just days after taking posed up, is by train to ask me so lived these long without the NOSE in my house for my point....

So there is has not had never the NOSE before? I bad, I once but was the LaCie and prendido to use the reason he no back until a cloud... I have tried then PogoPlug and this was the disaster .....

This is surprising. Active OneDrive Through Office365, Dropbox free, and Walk of Amazon (1TB option for now). All my videos in my library of iTunes is in walk of Amazon and my files of Windows are in OneDrive. Some the critical files are in Dropbox so that it has been one the majority of reliable.

With a CloudSync application that could in of the this, can synchronise all these off-line files in my NOSE, annex of the new files in him of my PC of desktop, and they all behind until a cloud like the secondary source. Has 100Mb low and the debit accelerates so using the 100Mb the connection of some roads of PC he in a cloud almost so hurriedly while it can write it there. More, can turn my PC has been afterwards uploading my videos and some cures of NOSE of him everything.

Opens, also installed Emby in of the this and has linked my dossier of Walk of the Amazon where some films of iTunes are and now can look my films and sample of television (any-DRM ones, even so) in my XBOX the unit IS that Plex of Plex no with this device, but does not take very time to pose up. Only I have to attribute the Only permission Read in to a net likes him all the world can read some videos in left which house a XBOX sees it. ( It IS still veiled in an internet, so that it is the plus ).

The scanners of virus are done in a NOSE and a lot of, many other things have not explored fully still. BUT my main reason to buy it was that it has seen it to it to him on Knows That in Twit.tv and has had to only has he for everything.

Opens Only has 1 bay for the 3.5' the disk takes, as I have posed in my existent 2TB direct which are more the data concealed active now, so that he for now. I will imagine out of that to do later when this full up.

But that is to say the very impressive device that synchronises in some services of cloud have to give me an out of copies-of security of place, can back my PC until some which backs of NOSES he until a cloud, and now has the server of means comunicacionales of the house. The only desire has paid one extra $ 100 to take a 2 variety to walk to do to RAID 0 (which are not recommended but one offsite the backup save me if a walk fails).

And for those of you concealed is unlikely to imagine was so to pose this up, was incredibly easy to do. I have posed in the walk and turned it on. Taking quite 2 minutes. Once on, it blinks for the bit and has come then up with the page of web in my PC once finds an allocution of IP through my subject. I have answered an on-the aims of screen and headed from here that. It shows one Knows That episode in twit.tv to take more information in of the actions and other things while they count it well.

So many, only is that it lines a surface in easterly but is impressed incredibly so far.

State using a Western Digital MyCloud products for TimeMachine backups in our Mac - A WD the products have not gone never particularly stable like the aim of backup of the point. Quan One of a WD is fatality, decided the invert in a (certainly more expensive) Synology DS418, and is very happy this has done. Pose up was easy, and TimeMachine Mac the multiple of backups is doing very softly (Tips: SHR volume. One has shared T Dossier. A 'user' for Mac with the quota. It marks some first backups a the time!). An only thing to be conscious of this that attaching/that it substitutes the disk is not that it attaches hurriedly the third 4TB disk in my config, has taken a DS418 the pair of days to melt he in, but does so without difficulty. In general I am very pleased in that little has to fiddle around with this server. He only works.

I have bought this with a mere purpose in of the imports: by behind my material up. It does not use anything offers another this storage and a software of the backup has comprised. With this context has established, is happy with a compraventa. Having multiple devices and very data (files of big video, etc), has required the solution of reliable backup. My backup of anterior cloud (crashplan) the left wing of solution me down. After a lot of years of use, crashplan abandoned his piece of use of the house with looking small. Obliging personal subscribers to emigrate in a lot to plan more business expensive (priced by device), remained with a service no longer directs in never in fact complete the full backup, has required another solution. I do not want a hassle to deploy the server of house, like this the NOSE accesses a bill. A cost is in pair with the years of pair of the service of backup of the cloud (for me in all the case with several devices and very data in backup). When being my first NOSE, took me the bit to learn so to pose on some storage left, but is otherwise situate the and the forget. All the backups (a lot of terabytes) has completed in the hours of pair. If I so much so touch the file, immediately enter a backside on row and process in of the seconds. It IS to beat it small, calm , down, and some characteristic is sum . There is the tonne there is not explored still, as I can buy another smaller unit for primary storage and to touch with additional backed applications, that retains this unit like the device of the storage of the backup has consecrated. Down, you want characteristic of cloud under your own ceiling, looks no further. Satisfied.

It take this predominately in acting like the server of means comunicacionales for my extensive film and collection of series of the television. I am technically-oriented and considered to build my own HTPC or NOSE, but does not have any old parts lying around and when the compraventa has considered around for the parts and he then has to maintain a system I, decided to go with the pre-the solution has done. I have opted for a 4 creation of bay for future expandability, to maintain the warehouse the centrical plus that only buying more and more the external walks as has in a past. Setup Was mere fatality. Attraction the tray out of the bay, breaks a walk in, and slide a tray behind in, the installed hardware. To pose it up in your grandson, calm simply surf in the URL in your device of computer of election and follows a wizard to take each setup. I have used already Emby in my PC, as I have posed that up in a walk and all was well to go. (Side of note by side: it likes him Emby so that it is of free and found the to do better that Kodi. My library was organised already closely in is preferred configuration as it was easy for me. It finds an application for my ready television is sorely slow but a web UI is responsive so that it thinks that that the swipes of the action is more the factor of an application/of television).

In general, is the bit pricey for the personal/house installs, but a setup/the consolation of interview is to well sure the point to sell. Using Synology HYBRID RAID, actuate already maxed out of a capacity of some first two bays, but still has 2 available bays. I am trying to minimise my necessities until some walks of big capacity (10TB+) goes to rack and sea in pricing more, but once easily could bend my capacity that the current would be necessary last me the good time in a future.

Absolutely would recommend these decrees: character or small subjects with the bit of extra load that only wants the solution these works.

For walks, recommends eseagate IronWolf NOSES 7200RPM Internal SATA the walk Takes in a measure of your election.

In the first place you are, I am the MAC the user those runs Mohave 10.14.2. Look for my 'cloud' suitable for use of house. This unit is come highly recommended of the friends in acting like the very easy to pose-arrive and unit of use.

Was in fact very easy to pose-arrive and take that it runs in the MAC but there is the few things to learn.

Left me in the first place say is any one The Expert, does not feign to be, not even the computer of house hobbyist. A primary use of my MAC is to edit videos that has wanted to issues it to store a big number of images and videos has without going in in a service of external cloud likes him 'icloud'. I am sure he has the better road is sure any chime in.

An adherent is that found when looking for a 'net on that to conform the few things;
1) uses my NOSE for Machine of Time. Synology HAS learns bases very very those walks calm through a process to create the user of Machine of separate Time and the separate volume for a backup of Machine of real Time.
2) wants to store your Itunes library in your NOSE, sound' any quite so mere likes him movement a Itunes dossier of musician in a NOSE. Synology Did not retreat an use of Itunes. There is the few good videos in youtube that count as to go quite moving a itunes library in a NOSE. For me it is it bit it complicated but doable.
3) A same situation kinda sues one 'the library of the photos , in that it can it you very only simply moves a dossier in a volume of Pictures in a NOSE. I have not looked up if a process required included by a Itunes the library is a same for Photo. I have used this cual an occasion to cross my beaks of Photo and clean house. A very manual process, but law. The thing is with my method has the tent of photos in Photo (Mac) and in Canal of Photo....

In general is very pleased with a Diskstation and is capacities !

I seat so it ensure he this product. It have considered building my own, but when thought enough battles to take VPN is to do or no in that has easy access through multiple devices, decided to go for east. So far, I am very happy with him. The desire had jumped for one with a capacity to update the ram and I have subjects here and there with a Synology DSM Operating system. In timing it could wish for some functionality attached or a capacity in tweak something in yours likes him. I bad, am the Linux fanboy and can change literally anything wants in the system of Linux, as I guess when finds included a slightest the sewing can very tweak, is turbulent. By everything means, an ease of use is to enormous premium, a fact that could this in and some smaller setup for me has the NOSE adds is sum. I bad, this thing wins in of the points of consolation only.

Also, can rest easy with mine 4 6TB walks setup like the RAID 10 that my data is sure. Together with him, it has bought the UPS, as it is amiably setup that has the power outage, a NOSE safely shutdown.in a future, will consider to buy another and have he localised offsite he in my parents or my brothers contain so that always the backup in case that of any situation. A lot of people highly would recommend to join he with the option of cloud, but with 3TB of data, the hate expects 6 month for my data to be the debit finished in a cloud. I am quite happy knows that I can have the low walk and still has my data while I substitute it.

Synology Is probably a better IN THE SYSTEM and almost always the good investment. A web-map based DSM the software is a better available and has update constantly. A DS418 the line has dual LAN put you to resupply Aggregation of Link. This calm leave you to transfer die in until 226MB/s on 2 lines of Ethernet (with each line maxing was in around 110MB/s how is basically like this quickly like this Gigabit the ethernet can go).

This in spite of, is considering a DS418, spends an extra $ 50 and take at least a DS418play. Synology Marketing Info can be confuse considering exactly the one who a difference is among some models (i.et. That calms really volume for a “j”, “game”, “+” suffix). In a side of product-for-comparisons lateralmente, his all aim alike capacities. For example, all a DS418 the models aim that they will touch some mean comunicacionales was. This in spite of, a DS418 any hardware transcode files of means comunicacionales ( has to that take at least a DS418play for that). Still worry very calm you on DLNA transcoding, a DS418 uses the Realtek ARM CPU which will not run Plex, Dockers, or probably technology of server more future. A DS418play and up is based in Intel CPUs that hardware transcode, run Plex, VMware and Dockers and is way more future-test. A Intel CPUs also resupply bit it more horsepower for encryption and another activity of server. If you go to spend of the money, taking at least a DS418play. If you are really the streaming, a DS918+ can current 2 4k video simultaneously while a DS418play can so only that runs one the time. If need of multiple users the current 4K video simultaneously or wants to use a eSATA port to connect an expansion of 5 Bays DX517 IN The, then has to that spend a big bucks in a DS918+. Otherwise, A DS418play is your better bang for a buck.

I really like Synology devices, generally, and recommends and defend them typically. This in spite of, some prizes for some of his devices is always be the question for me and am seldom happy unless I can buy it used/refurbished.

Like an example, yes compare a DS118, DS218 and DS418 will remark that his all are basically a same unit with an interior of joint of same system. Realtek RTD1296 Quad-Core 1.4 GHz CPU, 1 or 2GB of RAM, USB 3.0, 1 or 2 Gigabit ethernet, etc. Of the perspective of manufacture, one 2 and 4 models of bay are so only one 1 model of bay with the little bit of extra plastic and the long more backplane joint. This in spite of one 4 model of bay is more than pair a prize!! Ossia Absolutely the chance of Synology exploding clients those who naively think that one 4 model of bay would owe that cost stirs it more. No, we are speaking the little more dollars in of the plásticoes and PCB and the chip of RAM and look it more backplane connectors and walk. Further that, has the little more the dollars there is joined up in general box and the little more to ship, etc. Sad, $ 200 more for a 4 bay compares to a 1 bay is one frankly fraud.

A @subject still is existed with his units of expansion of his inception. A 5 expansion of unit of bay that there is hardly any electronics inside costs almost $ 500! Ossia More realistically $ 100 value of material in prize of typical manufacture, this in spite of Synology knows the people go to be any wiser and probably will be in the pinch in all the chance. If it is more economic to simply buy another Synology that buys a unit of expansion, knows something shady that goes in.

Had tried the little different storage solutions for my House and the subject small of the family, but any solution has tried gaze to do a way that has been announced or fulfil my needs. With all honesty was owed my election to try to find the solution to estimate reason $ 400 for the IN The and then another 4-500, at least, for walks to dip in is the plot of money. I can not begin to describe the one who happy I follows this in spite of. Ossia The solid product . I can not speak to some uses for the server of means comunicacionales, reasons have not taken around to try this characteristic still, but for the solution of storage have beaten. This IN THE FRAMES for behind ups, storage of data, and the file that the extremely easy actions and no only reasons are the computing of entity. Still for people those who can not be some better with computers, dipped up is súper easy and an interface of web is simple and very intuitive. It dips up in the local coverage is extremely easy. It dips up for far access for multiple users this in spite of, while less badly simpler that something like a Ubuntu server, still probably will require the little more than half technician and networking knowledge. Especially if that runs a antivirus and/or cortafuego to the equal that will owe exceptions of mark for an allocution of far IP. To create the walk of far coverage, calm also will require any one the allocution of static IP or the name of half and the DDNS service.

In general this in spite of like this far, could not be happier with a product and am happy has decided to spend some extra money and take something concealed to do add, is easy to direct, and fulfils all my needs. I will try to go back and the update once has an occasion to text some of some characteristic of server of the half comunicacionales.

UPDATE:
To the equal that has has had now an occasion to try some of some characteristics that use this so that the server of means comunicacionales. It has dipped some films in the and and was able the current him. My conclusion are has some abonos informative and some bad informative. It leaves to take a bad informative out of a first way.

Bad Informative:
If you are the defender of Plex can be out of regime. Synology Looks to have the support interrupted for Plex for all the model IN I the servers averts those using a intel processor. According to a Plex forums, some of an old plus DS418 the models have a intel chip but almost everything of a new some have a Realtek quad cores in them. It dreads a lot this in spite of, has found one alternating the solution will share in a good informative. One another thing has found is there is some other services that career while you are trying the current HD the video can take some stuttering occasionally while has another uploading or downloading that it goes in in a fund. I am not sure if this is to relate to a processor or a quantity limited of RAM but I slowly to add more RAM in the near future there is also there is enabled recently a ethernet port aggregation and will try to see if this a lot of difference also. Note: the Port aggregation Some so only will do has @subject conceal sustains it. Has the bond of balance of the Load but is not one same like port aggregation. retest After these modifications and the report back again with another update.

A lot Informative:
A good informative I expósito is, this in spite of there is roughly stuttering is quite easy to do around he to take roughly of a backside on services can have while run tyring the streaming video, which, while his no ideal, does not find to be that big of the extracted given a point of prize has compared to other solutions. A port aggregation there is enabled recently together with my plan to augment a RAM included can solve this subject. Another good informative is, for those of you the one who does not have your heart dipped in Plex, has an application for an Amazon FireStick has called Archos this looks to do a lot well in my opinion. You can explore all your dossiers in a look of server in of the pictures, music of game, and video of current. So that far there is it so only has tried it this while streaming in my local coverage and has not tried still far streaming that uses this application. I have had once an occasion again will inform behind with another update.

First-time IN THE implementor. It is a lot well when have the location has centralised to store personal content safely and be able of the access in any device, of anywhere. It is also wonderful to know, in the RAID1 configuration, if one of some walks fails, a data is not lost. I have purchased two 4TB Seagate IronWolf walks thus produced and am really happy.

Synology Besieges of the support is well, with a lot of useful information. I recommend to go there to see say, some differences among a DS218, DS218play, DS218j.

A thing that is hard to beat, and the real extracted, the need converged with the IN The expert, any question, is there. Calm also can rid the entrance, right of inside a poster of control of one IN The.

Initial setup was very easy - perhaps too easy. I have finalised with the configuration of redundancy that the law a lot takes beginners (shr) when really it love RAID1. First to situate any data in a walk, the fast cat with support, and has learnt that would require to do for the transmission to RAID1.

Then I inquired like this to that it would be it require to map the paper of walk of the Win10 client to one IN The. The cat has saved a day.

I a lot like an ease to download some Applications of Android to use in my mobile phone to access one IN The.

Functionality? A tonne of him in the very small enclosure. Just days after taking it dipped on, are by train to ask me like this has lived it this longitude without the IN The in my house for my coverage....

Well, as it gives this the star of zero? A device was easy to install a first time, and comes with the plot of software. This in spite of,the curve to learn is empinada, and a built in drive them are bad. If it calms it is exactly, failure. It takes the good quantity of Googling and experimenting to take included a basic functionality to do. To good sure any house the friendly user. Files of lock of the signal? You can Files of no. of accesses remotely? It requires divine intervention. I am disappointed - looks that a software is changing and some manuals are static, like the plot of his self the help is inaccurate and confusing.
Reinstallation Has looked for to be the nightmare in the 2nd subject. A device was invisible, and are roughly 2 hours to try to imagine was like this to change that, and access of the profit by means of one issues. Synology Instructions - some people look well in him, but no very logical. If you can not see a device, use a DSM to configure one issues. May... I can not see a device to access a DSM. Taking-22. Well, has clues to follow, but ossia worse that programming the VCR in a 1980 east. Lol, Ossia more for people those who fearlessly flashes motherboards. Modifying a register is easy comparatively. Strongly it recommends that a half consumer averts these products - is not the friendly consumer. It leaves for a pros.

To the equal that HAS has not had never the IN The prime? I mean, I once but is the LaCie and there is prendido to use the reason he a lot behind until a cloud... I have then tried PogoPlug and this was the disaster .....

This is surprising. Have OneDrive By means of Office365, Dropbox free, and Walk of Amazon (1TB option for now). All my video in my library of iTunes is on walk of Amazon and my files of Windows are in OneDrive. Some the critical files are in Dropbox reasons has been one the majority of of confidence.

With a CloudSync application that could is, can sync all these off-line files mine IN The, adds his new files of my desk PCs, and his all behind until a cloud like the secondary source. Has 100Mb down and upload speed like this using the 100Mb the connection of a PC sends it to a cloud almost like this quickly like that can write there. More, can turn my PC was after uploading my video and one IN THE CURES of him everything.

Now, I also installed Emby is and has linked my file of walk of the Amazon where some films of iTunes are and now can look my films and of the shows of television (any-DRM some, this in spite of) to the mine XBOX A. It is it likes Plex of Plex no with this device, but does not take long to dip up. Has has had to that so only attribute the Only permission Read to a coverage so that all the world can read some video in home to the equal that has left a XBOX the see. ( It is hid still in an internet, so that it is the plus ).

The escáneres of virus are done in an IN The and a lot, a lot other things have not explored fully still. BUT my main reason to buy it was that I saw it on Know That on and has has had to that so only has he for everything.

Now so only has 1 bay for the 3.5' hard disk, as I have dipped in the mine that exists 2TB drive which is more the one of then have now, so that he for now. I will imagine out of that to do later on when this plenary up.

But ossia the really impressive device that syncs to some services of cloud have to give me an out of copies-of security of place, can back my PC until one IN THE which retreated until a cloud, and now have the server of means comunicacionales of the house. The only desire has paid an extra $ 100 to take a 2 variety to walk to do to RAID 0 (which is not recommended but a offsite the backup except if a walk fails).

And for those of you the one who is unlikely to imagine was like this to dip this on, was incredibly easy to do. It has dipped in the walk and turned it on. It has taken roughly 2 minutes. Once on, it blink for the bit and has then come up with the web page in my PC has found once an allocution of IP by means of my subject. I have answered an on-the aims of screen and headed of there that. It shows to a Knowledge Likes the episode on to take more information in of the actions and other things as they explain it well.

So much, so only are that it lines a surface is but am impressed incredibly like this far.

Has been using a Western Digital MyCloud produced for TimeMachine backups in ours Macs - A WD the products have not gone never particularly stable like the aim of backup of the coverage. When One of a WD has died, has decided to invest in a (certainly more expensive) Synology DS418, and am very happy that has done. It dips up it was easy, and TimeMachine backups of multiple Macs is doing a lot of smoothly (Tips: SHR volume. One has shared T File. A 'user' for Mac with the quota. Some first backups one the time!). An only thing to be conscious of this that adding/that it substitutes the disk is not that it adds quickly the third 4TB disk to mine config, has taken a DS418 the pair of days to melt he in, but do like this without difficulty. In general I am very pleased in that little has to that fiddle around with this server. He so only works.

Has bought this with a simple purpose in alcohol: for behind my material up. It does not use anything offers another it storage and a software of backup has comprised. With this context has established, am happy with a compraventa. Having multiple devices and very given (files of big video, etc), has required the solution of backup of confidence. My backup of leading cloud (crashplan) the solution left down. With which a lot of years of use, crashplan abandoned his phase of use of the house with looking small. Forcing personal subscribers to emigrate to subject very flat more expensive (priced for device), remained with a service no longer heading to never in fact complete the full backup, has required another solution. Have has not wanted a hassle to deploy the server of house, as east IN THE ACCESS a bill. A cost is on pair with the years of pair of the service of backup of the cloud (for me in all the chance with several devices and a lot of data the backup). When being prime minister of mine IN The, took the bit to learn like this to dip on some storage has left, but is otherwise plant the and the forget. All the backups (a lot of terabytes) has completed in the hours of pair. If I so like this touch to file, immediately enter a backside on row and process in of the seconds. It is small power , calm , down, and some characteristic is of sound. There is the tonne has not explored still, as I can buy another smaller unit for primary storage and to touch with the applications sustain additional data, retains it this unit like the device of the storage of backup has consecrated. In short, characteristic master of cloud under your own ceiling, looks no further. Satisfied.

In the first place was, are the MAC the user that careers Mohave . Rings my 'cloud' own for use of house. This unit has come highly recommended of laws of friends like the very easy to dip-arrive and units of use.

Was in fact very easy to dip-arrive and take that it runs in the MAC but there is the few things to know.

Left in the first place say are any one The Expert, does not feign to be, not even the computer to house hobbyist. A primary use of the mine MAC is video that modifies the one who has loved the way to store a big number of images and video has without going to the the service of external cloud like 'icloud'. They are sure he has the better way am sure any chime in.

A following is that I have found when looking for a 'coverage on like this to fulfil the few things;
1) mine of use IN THE for Car of Time. Synology HAS the knowledge really well bases that calm walks by means of a process to create the user of Car of separate Time and the separate volume for a backup of Car of real Time.
2) wants to store your Itunes library in yours IN The, his' any quite like this simple like emotional a Itunes file of music to one IN The. Synology Does not sustain an use of Itunes. There is the little good video in youtube this explains like this to go roughly moving a itunes library to one IN The. For me it is quell'has bitten complicated but doable.
3) A same situation kinda asks some 'Photos' library, in that that can you a lot so only simply move a file to a volume of Pictures in an IN The. I do not have on looked if an included required process for a Itunes the library is one same for Photo. I have used this like an occasion to spend for my Photo pics and clean house. An a lot manual process, but work. The thing is with my method has the photos store on Photos (Mac) and in Canal of Photo....

In general am very pleased with a Diskstation and is capacity !

Synology I products have been always solids of rock in my experience. I have bought a RS1219+ partorisca substitute a RS810+ RX410 combo. I have had a RS810+ RX410 combo of a half of 2011 and he always extremely of confidence.

A migration was extremely simple, retreated on my settings and critical die, swapped some walks on and began it up. When Have in the first place begun has taken the look that my configuration of walk had changed and in a Manager of Storage I reconfigured a volume, has left DSM update some settings and I was was and that careers.

All my settings have transferred on without the question, has had the applications of pair that we outdated and any sustained in any canal of new storm, but at all that I really used anymore.

Has added one 16 GB RAM upgrade and a Racks the action of Canal is fantastic.

Has (8) Western Digital 4 TB drives installed partorisca the total of TB of usable space. It is a lot of value the to spend of the money in some walks of company, is meaning partorisca this type of workload.

In general is the product adds and am extremely happy with him.

In the business setting meso, has purchased a Synology RS2418RP+ partorisca substitute the no commercial quality Asustor IN THE for a lot of reasons. An old IN THE so only could manage the maximum of 8 TB walks, the synchrony of cloud was complicated too much and unreliable, one YOU and UI was bad, has not been partorisca rack and on.

Has ordered a Synology RS2418RP+, more the 16 GB box of RAM (D4EC-2400-16G), and eight 16TB walks ST16000NM001G. I have not ordered an optional 10 Gbps NIC like our coverage can so only boss 1 Gbps in all the chance. More, comes with four (4) LAN ports with only MAC allocutions and assignable allocutions of IP.

An order has arrived late my work day, but was still able of the take up and running inner roughly 40 minutes - comprising a-boxing, that adds a box of RAM, and inserting some disks. One YOU UI is very intuitive. I have tried Cloud Sync with Walk of G, and was surprisingly easy, and extremely quickly. I have been trying each appearance of this device, and simply can not find any one fails with him. Establishing the volumes and the groups of storage was simple with a Manager of Storage. Creating groups and accounts of user - also very intuitive. It was able to establish SFTP connectivity with our multifunction devices (copiers), as we can have 'workflow' it escáneres that it goes directly to the file in an IN The.

One a thing partorisca be conscious of: one IN considers Him one 16 TB walks partorisca have 14.5 TB of storage in the each one. I will update this description after the little more month.

Has based in the mine that buys the Synology DiskStation DS415+, which uses one SAME DEFECTIVE CPU = Intel Atom C2538

the device there is prendido to do suddenly, and can not be kicked on again, never. After undermining around, this owes the Synology using a Intel Atom C2000 chip of series in a device, which has the defect of signal of known clock that deteriorates a component. When This raisin (typically any time after a first year of use), a motherboard is bricked, which means a whole unit has died.

Has contacted Synology sustain as it will update this description when it listens behind them. They will take points for (1) treating @@subject promptly, (2) fixing or that substitutes a device like this-new, (3) that ensures that any data has tent in an IN sound has lost!

All the options of storage can fail. It is more on some characteristic and guaranteeed with the systems have taken. You can dip all your eggs in a basket and suffer or the build was redundancy like recommended worlds each L professional there.

Have a RS2416RP+ and the RS2211RP+ with unit of expansion. My infrastructure workflow is operating the SAINT for file and of the services of street of virtual cars iSCSI to a 2416. The backups run of SAINTS to a 2416 each work day. Some 2416 behind until one 2211 each work day. One 2211 also servants like the aim of images of cameras of security for our NVR. One 2211 is located in the different location for the Dr. Type setup.

The characteristic is leaves to control and protecting die. Beware That your configuration probably will be a feeble link in setups. It is usually error of user that creates loss of data. My experience taught this lesson when a whole directory has been deleted or corrupted in the server and so only founds to lose after a retention of the backup for a file there was caducado. I have done the bad decision and learnt of him. Now I have 2 weeks of newspapers snapshots, 12 monthly snapshots, and 3 annual snapshots still all the servers. You save some few headaches and look in your data more closely. Can save you hours of countless man.

I highly recommends to use snapshots and configuring to your half. Calm then can use a tool of replication among two rackstations like the backup. One first replication will be big to the equal that maintains that the import is doing offsite. This will give you the backup of a half for disaster and error of user. A snapshots will prevent calm of accidentel deletion subject and corruptions. A replication fend against a physical harm or of the failures. It is abordable (in comparison the options to appoint big) to do with this line of product.

I some troubleshooting (that has it 20 years more in a L business) and there is @@give that has required to open the entrance of question with Synology. With which he tentativa so only to do troubleshooting (take all the walks and of the external devices, reboot), the support of technology there is me advised to buy the new IN The. I have called and spoken with the manager of support (the one who there have been 10 whole months of tenure with a company) the one who have me advised of a same thing, that declares that of one IN THE era no longer down guaranteeed has had any recourse excepts to buy something new. It has had no alternative to repair or substitute less than retail fill. After all, mine IN THE era almost five years! I guess it concealed he prójimo an elderly.

The cost verified has purchased the DS718+ together with this bay of expansion. They are not the novice, dipped this on but has had the few questions. Synology Said they no longer support of client of the offer and are for my account. After spending $ 2500 (Synology more memory and updates of hard walks) would have expected at least partorisca ask the few questions. This is not the good signal and both units are going right behind. It was easy to dip up and looks partorisca do well. The unanchored technician does not have any use partorisca any product of technology. Synology, BECAUSE it is refusing questions of initial support partorisca such type of cost? There is taken on cup of your negation partorisca plan calls of telephone of initial support like a First investigation of Amazon.

Update : the AMAZON CONFIRMED CAN not RETURN the HARD WALKS ONCE ARE OPENED And INSTALLED in this DEVICE! Although SYNOLOGY the DEVICE Is DEFECTIVE! SO ONLY I CAN RETURN $ 800 of the $ 2500 COMPRAVENTA! SHAME ON AMAZON! With which three calls of telephone to a supervisor of Amazon his finally took Synology in a telephone. I have thought Synology at least would plan the call of telephone of the support with me and would be done. Instead a Synology the representative expected partorisca ask my questions in a something. I have not been of my computer and is been two of then looked weeks in Synologies UI. Synology Was very arrogant and said does not have time partorisca spend/the waste that pause the clients. Say that spent of mine was in $ 2500 and adapted them are a client with on 30 years of him experience. A sinology rep said hard ST! Thats Corrects curse in the client. A star partorisca both Amazon and Synology partorisca this accident. I have called my Amazon first bank and has contested one $ 2500 load until Synology leave me to plan the call of support with them.

Update 7/2/19: Potentail the buyers would owe that be conscious that Synology NO LONGER resupplies the service for products has sold United States ossia OUT OF period of GUARANTEE. It can spend $ 500 more in his IN THE SYSTEM and the year if a system breaks YOUR FOR YOUR ACCOUNT! Eat a cost of hard walks that purchased to purchase unsupported produced of technology. It finalises to purchase another IN The and that spends for a question to recover die at present in your hard walks. Extracted subjects of compatibilities, ESPECIALLY has selected an option to use Synology PROPRIETARY RAID 6 configuration to store your data. Good regime!

has been using produced of storage of the data for decades professionally and house. I have used to build my own and finally he almost done 10 years have finalised with Synology. Like this far Synology has surpassed mine (very big) expectations.

A product would owe that be short in several metrics:
1) produced - a thing compraventa
2) cycle of Life - a thing compraventa in a calm period the the
3) support - can take support when (any ) has questions

First, has produced.
Synology DX1517: I have added this DX1517 to mine DS1517+ in my office of house. I will touch in global Synology but house in a DX1517 (this produced).

Synology Has produced of the storage is centred around the Linux-based DSM, or Manager of Canal of the Disk that pursues in his DS (Canal of Disk) line. For the wife/half of small office, is extremely powerful. DSM HAS functionality of bases a lot strong that is complimented for the long cast of applications that can add you of both Synology and 3.os vendors of party. Like Applications for your PC or telephone, many these applications are free. But like Office of Microsoft with Windows, any all the applications are free.

One especially that DSM requires payment for with which the sure point is Canal of Surveillance . You can so only run until 2 camera for free on Canal of Surveillance, after precise authorises Canal of Surveillance for camera (and although some badly the descriptions have declared) has purchased authorises of the camera is transferable to another Synologies. I he.

Further, if I can not find an application loves Synology also offers Docker so that I can add generic 3.as applications to separate are available in Docker containers. Has 10 installed applications that the way and the beginning them/ prenden like this necessary. DSM And any installed application can do by means of any volumes of system that DSM is conscious of.

Adding a DX1517 is simple: be sure all is powered was, some disks are installed in a unit of expansion, a eSata the boss is inserted correctly and closely screwed in in both ends, and then turn all on. Magic, has more disks. In DSM, create the new volume in some disks of new expansion. Then it will do the consistency checks a volume and then is good to go. Fact.

So much with east, now have 50TB widespread by means of a main and unit of expansion in two volumes each in RAID 6. Yes, out of 10 disks are 'squandering' 4. Read on.

Here is a tone: it DOES not EXTEND A VOLUME By means of eSATA has has CONNECTED DEVICES. I run the separate volume in a unit of expansion (all, and mean ALL, vendors of the storage strongly recommends that setup) to the equal that has 2 volumes, one in a main DS unit, one in a DX unit. DSM Does not concern , and certainly does not have the database or anything concealed precise more spatial that the alone volume. It can have so only the alone volume that comprises devices? Sure you can. Calm also can drive more the cars have manufactured today on 100+ mph. But here it is a difference : that runs the volume by means of a eSATA the connection is calm like SO ONLY When BEING OF ABLE to drive your automobile on 100mpg All the time. When (Any himself, but when) something goes wrong (that it could be it your own error , can any one), a class of consequences to suck.

RAID 6 only leaves 2 redundancy of disks. If I have had so only the alone volume by means of my DS and DX and anything was to spend to any one my DS, mine DX, some cords to be able to that goes to neither, or a eSata the boss that connects him, would lose 5 disks in a volume. So I have had a volume by means of both devices, this volume would lose 5 disks. 5 disk >2 disks. RAID 6 does not go to help a lot of. Good regime. (For some purists, according to a character of a failure there is a casualidad external that could be able to king-establish read-the only access to a volume can take all the walks that turn again. But that reconstructs 50TB to ???)

Like this TL;Dr.: A unit of the expansion so only is and just works. It is transparent, and while it is installed correctly, any I still thinks roughly that. I so only interface with DSM.

As, Life of Cycle of Product
Synology an amazing work to maintain DSM and a core Synology Applications a lot so only updated for security and of the subjects of reliabilities but his in fact functionalities to augment over time to the equal that possess your product. His no only that for a first year or while a product is guaranteeed down - but like this far for a DS+ serious roughly 5 years or more after a product comes to stage. Ossia The enormous plus .

The a lot of companies dipped out of the decent product then rushes to develop another product can sell and leave some leading products with old, buggy and insecure firmware. With which awhile, that had been the decent product initially results incompatible, insecure, and effectively unsupportable (a lot of vendors of telephone of low end that Android of career this - a simply does not offer updates when they are directed in his next product. Synology Life of the record product of cycle has been first tax . Continuous be? The one who knows, but a successful better indicator future is past success.

Thirdly, Support of Product.
Support of the device of the storage is and would have to that be centred around preventing loss of data. Has the in the first place hand-held experience with Synology alive support in the DS1511+ has used to have. Exceptional support: has has had questions of power in my house that resulted in mine DS the be has forced to restart repeatedly and when finalising a lot when being pas able to kick of disk. Contacted Synology support, inside the day the human being in fact manually logged to my system, a-messed he on, and was well to go. Here it is a kicker: a DS1511+ was out of guaranteeing at the same time, and was conscious of that. It was and still I am impressed. It finds another < $ 1,000 product that will do that. Then it finds one this will do that when a product is out of guarantee. This class of support is so only same remotely feasible a company maintains some products that bad up to date, if a life of underlying product-the cycle is solid. Synology Rids here.

Owe commentary in a type that goes during to amazon that shouts that it will not sustain a product after a period of guarantee. In the first place, Synology guaranteeed of the base is 3 years . As, Synology the offers have extended guarantees of 2 years if ossia that loves, as you can take 5 guarantee of years. Finally, it is usually preferable and in a long run more economic that substitute the 3+ year the device has failed old that it is for the take fixed, particularly in these points of sides. It depends that it goes bad: defenders, PSUs is fixed easily for local talent. More than that, and still for the PC would recommend to take the device of substitution. Some the old walks will do with a new device. If you are concerned in Synology SHR RAID, RAID of just use 6. Calm then can go in any Linux-the device has based. But taken the substitution Synology, so only empty some walks in, boot on and will be good to go.

For the vendor of storage, am happy to prioritise subjects of loss of the data for real sustains. If I love help to dip on Canal of Photo the to the, has the solid ecosystem in planting to take help both in a Synology the web besieges (forum, wiki) but also in other locations (reddit, SynoForum, etc).

In general, still gives Synology 5 stars.

Has bought this to develop the DS718+. I am spent of the weeks that goes back and advances with Synology support. His no calm email directly, and has to that record to his web of place to see updates to any entrances. They have maintained so only send canned the any one has joined answered to a subject. A subject was a unit would close on randomly and all the walks would disappear until me rebooted DS718+. The support was slow to answer, his never really tried to solve a subject, has not asked any questions of clue, has not asked mine to do anything to try for the solve, and so only would send some useless responses was. It was for my account. With which weeks of of the this, has given up and is returned this unit to Amazon for the repayment before mine 30 days was up. No material will buy Synology again. I have thought some big prizes of his units has been supposition to be because they have resupplied support to notch upper. His no. of Mine IN has been Him that crash for the month because of this unit of expansion. I have moved some walks to an old PC that has uploaded OMV to. It is way more flexible of one IN sound. It does not trust my data in the Synology IN THE that knows like his works to sustain now. So only I will be to use he for the data no critic from now on. All more is that it goes in mine OMV box.

I upgraded of the leading Synology IN The to the DS1019+, and 10 TB walks, for - 26 TB in RAID
A DX517 was the perfect election to use a previously installed 4 TB walks, for some additional 11 TB in RAID.
Likes Synology the users would expect, the hardware and the software install and the start is easy.
A DX 517 expansion the unit connects to a DX1019+ with a eSATA boss, which there is thumbscrews to prevent one of accidentally pulling free.

Has had an occasion to contact support of technology (which is built to a Synology software, or can use a web).
Flawless and professional help. They have solved a subject 100 my satisfaction in a prime minister tries. A+++

He, can spend less (or more).
But yes love the hardware adds, software, and support, these just works, Synology is the election adds!

I have required the upgrade mine IN The to the model the new plus in all the chance, as having an of these units of the expansion manually was the good excuse partorisca purchase the DS1817 partorisca go with him.
5 / 5
Be VERY CAREFUL that buys this enclosure partorisca develop your DSxx17 unit of series.

I recently purchases one 8 disk DS1817+ Synology like a upgrade partorisca my DS1815+. ( I have required partorisca be able to add the 10Gbe NIC partorisca more throughput...)

Has assumed that one 5 enclosure of disk would be compatible with some same walks have used in a DS1817+. WRONG!!!!

A HCL (cast of compatibility of the hardware) partorisca a DX517 external enclosure partorisca a DS1817+ Is not COMPATIBLE WITH The BLUK OF THE TYPICALLY AVAILABLE WALKS.

For example: it is not compatible with a majority of RED DIGITAL WESTERN IN THE WALKS. (A main unit [p. p.ej. DS1817+] Is, but a DX517 enclosure of expansion of the disk is not !)

Be warned!

Rodeo:

Pros:
or the Easiest interface
or the Enormous cast of applications can install on that.

Gilipollas:
Or That RAID of call 5 can lose all the data with fault of alone disk.
Or The software is like this the trace of bug needs the constant current of patches. Many of the which are patches in his patches. Many of the as it caused it also partorisca lose all the data. See his forms partorisca sustain if precise chance.
Or The support is useless. It takes days partorisca take to send the useless can'and the answered that does clears never read your subject.
Or there is rampant the subjects with a power distributes partorisca fail. Google ynology' And 'the fault of supply of the can' he precise chance.
Or When you run in any of an a lot of fail known situations his support in fact will say you that precise back on data in his behind up devices because they are not of confidence.

Details:
That is calling RAID five still can lose all the data because of fault of alone disk. They are too economic to use buffered ports like this when any of some hard walks fails it entirely can freeze a whole device. Included some lights in a front can take flashes. Leaving you any option but to reboot he in the point has lost all the data. His support has taken three days to answer. With which which said to knots in fact the data stored in Synology devices of precise backup be to look reason his products can not be trusted.

A bit those that months later one of his constant patches caused it to lose all one is walks of trace . Once it has taken he more than the days to resupply the useless response that denies a question has thought even was very documented in his forums of own support.

After the year and the half a supply to be able to entirely failed without warning. It Googling Looked is the subject wide propagation known for more than 5 years have not fixed never.

In any point was any in a company surprised or embarrassed for an absurdly terrible his products are.

Synology DX513 retro I five leading models of disk of 5 canal of Bays. A has experienced Synology the installer in the cat has said would owe that look in a 517, because of some characteristic of action. I have adapted too much airily and it has had the client buys it, (a fourth 5 bay marks for his system with two DS unit -13+ and -15+).
WRONG-WRONG-WRONG!!!
Can not imagine reason, but has abandoned a retro-apt concept typical of the new upgraded produced of series in 'Computerland'. DX517 Would owe that have the new Series . Like DX5217 or anything concealed any mislead my poor brain, and ruin my rep.
This would have to that it has had the FYI flag.

Use Synology units for some time, of house in business, of small in of the big units. Synology IS the concept I very adds. I think that that it accommodates the plot of characteristics in the only unit, and that is to say an amazing solution for users of house, SMBs and also big subject.

HAS work for business big for some time. As I Have studied prende to Compute fact 30 years and has been doing so of the Systems and Administrator of Mesh for more concealed 20 years, always in the companies have consecrated in developing software, is the quite used development to of software and also in of the points, NOSES, SANT, etc. (Allocution EMC ClarIIon, DELL Compellent, CISCO changes, servers, WMware half, etc.)

Has bought this last unit to implement Active Backup for Subject for the half very small, was only the little of the servers and the workstations would be protected.

After installing a unit and configuring Active Backup for Subject, begins to fail at random every day. Every day only there it is tasks of backup that is not done so that they are bonded while for other tasks to complete. A lot of tasks are emitting a message of Internal unfamiliar error, and suggestions to Contact our Squad of Technical Support.

Contacted Synology Squad of Support, and after almost the week of back and advance with different representatives, has any applicable solution or workaround in this problem.

Opens HAS the bouquet of the servers and the totally unprotected computers, and backups that could useless so that afterwards so the failures do not have any confidence in an integrity of a data backed up.

Until today my perception of Synology was very good. There is the pair of subjects in a past with iSCSI the aims have used to to connect in the VMware half, but while it was for the developer of half, any preoccupy me much more or less the.

But today my perception of Synology has changed radically. Has the real and serious subject, has the data in them risks, and Synology the responses are evading his real subjects and trying more weights of gesture in my final like the client. That is to say totally objectionable.

Says that there is a subject with one deduplication algorithm, but has not offered very workaround (not even in the low level) to deactivate deduplication until they come with the solution.
If the work fails, causes the reaction of canal of failures that will affect other future works, although it is the task to delete very since goes to be purged because of policemen of retention. After all it begins to fail constantly. His solution for that was for prender and restart an Active Backup for Business application, and expect for a next emission of an application, probably in January 2019. That is to say also objectionable. Also they have subjects with Hard Walks that is not varied in 4K. But I surprise me that it is the random subject , so that he sometimes.

Synology IS the concept adds, and the Active backup for Subject is also the enormous concept, but his implementation is the real and total disaster , and backwards after the failures because of his subjects are alln of human imagination.

IS very sad, but Synology disappointed me in a point of any turn. If I need the solution to back up more than a computer (any server or workstation, physicist or virtual) maintains out of Active Backup for Subject. Any a lot of is if it does not avenge never up with the solution.

I do not go to speak in an Operating system adds in Synology NOSE, is a same in the each Synology NOSE of Consumer. My old plus DS211j, DS211 and DS411 still takes both security and CALM update a same time. Two inches up for a support continued of the models the old plus, with a remarkable exception of not backing btfrs in a DS411 which now uses for backup. WHY? All a necessary engine is comprised in a respective DSM.

Only go to speak enough the scrolling accelerates which are that it can wants to compare when elect among different Synology models.

Purchased a DS1618+ to update of my old and dulcemente DS411. Anything wants to do with a DS411 spiked only CPU 99%, same scrollings of mere file (4 disk SHR-1 configuration), which crowned in 12MB/s.
Inaugural and closing the applications was also terribly dulcemente.

In a DS1618+ used 3 old walks (16000 in 36000 hours) of a DS411 2 new walks more, each RED Digital Western 4TB in the 5x 4TB SHR-2 configuration and the only Volume (12000GB total of usable room) the decrees have attached HDD robustness of failure, has had since 2 lacking walks in 1 months in a DS411 the few years behind and was to ail able in reconstructing arrivals after a first walk failed when a second a (model and different mark) has failed also. RAID in addition to calm only help so far, only against HDD total failure, no with corruption or bitrot.

Has been tired of some speeds of scrolling would be able to achieve in 5xHDD SHR-2 configuration (the double parity means more use of CPU), since when moved of 2-bay DS211 with 2 HDD in SHR-1 in mine 4-bay DS411 with 4 HDD in SHR-1, the speeds of scrolling are fallen besides or 36 menosMB/s besides or 12 menosMB/s because of an use of CPU main. Lately this has been the ache since now is accusing big quantities of drone the images stored in my NOSE.

But has been blown has been: the speeds of Scrolling are so hurriedly so Gigabit ethernet calm of leaves in. The May thought It would see 99% use of mine GbE connection of PC. Both scripture and read of a NOSE in my Windows 7 x64 PC SSD is quite 100MB/s cual tried with to file of 16.6gb only of film.

Has had since or directs left wing of void (Disk 6), used it to pose one old plus 64TB SSD had posed around and enabled it so SSD hides. Any one necessity to buy a card of expansion. Even so when using only or SATA SSD, the hides is limited to read operations. But while you can see of a semi-detached image, a speed to write sustained of 110MB/s was done totally in a 4TB HDD. CPU The use has remained fixed in 30% during a whole scrolling. (A difference among individual disk writes the speed is only so that the sample a speed of instant written, no a bad write accelerate which usually was a same among Disks 1 in 5).

Opens is considering that it attaches the second GbE port in my PC, of this NOSE has 4 GbE displaces that aggregation of nexus of the support.

IS supremely pleased with this compraventa. The The plus has transformative to be able to INTERNAL, so that has no extra of bulky external brick the cape duquel to be able in of the beginnings easily when achieving by behind a NOSE like the models he the old plus has.

If you are considering a 5-bay Synology DS1517, this 6-bay DS1618 is option very better with the a lot of improved CPU to handle intensive tasks how running VMs and Applications, or transferring a lot of small files. An Atom of Intel of anterior gene CPU was less able compared in a C3538 Atom in a DS1618.
An only thing wishes my DS1618 has is built-is 10Gbit Ethernet.
Thinks that is time for Synology to press a envelope of action and direct a SMB/marries segment of NOSE in general speeds with levels 10Gbit ports.

I have purchased this NOSE to substitute my a lot of old Drobo Mini. A lot of investigation was in my decision to go with the Synology the device and 3 weeks am sure has had a right decision. This NOSE ticks all some boxes:

- described like Big storage with capacity to develop a group of storage without taking a low variety.

- A software of the management of the disk is supremely easy to learn still powerful

- I/Or the action is the sum and can be it included better with one 10gbe card of expansion. Consistently I Take around 114 MBs/s speeds of scrolling in gigabit ethernet which are isnt some the speeds the possible fast plus but is sufficient for me.

- Running the alone 1080p Plex the current ails ticks a cpu/ram what direct me to think this NOSE easily could run enough the few currents in or time.

Side of notes by side: I have used Carbonite to maintain my Drobo backed until cloud even so an only plan Carbonite has to retreated the NOSE is his subject to plan which are to bend a prize of a plan of house and only retreated the measure of storage of 250gb (against unlimited). After the plot to thwart the investigation was with Backblaze B2 to back a synology until cloud and while it sweats any finishing, has been doing well. Besides, B2 runs directly in to a NOSE likes him doesnt has required to be linked in the host to run.

It looks the people is having problems, but has has not had any one with my DS1819+. It is been well of smooth navigation out of a door. I have done some update, but at all the earth that shatters.
Has attached the used $ 40 Mellanox ConnectX-3 MCX312A-XCBT out of ebay. Immediately it recognise he without any glitches. It has attached then Kingston 2 clave ECC ram to take me in 32GB. Any necessary, but has wanted to one hides of ram. I have filled then in a NOSE with five 9yr old 3.5' 1.5tb-2TB walks. A Green of Caviar of the pair, the pair of Seagate or be a SSHD, and a Samsung of odd balloon, to round it was. Everything material that had been the seating in my shelf. While it takes the moment for my volume to take created, flavours to be fast.
Crystaldiskmark Was able to do has sustained the read of 1035MB/s and he 640MB/s the road written CIFS through the mish mashes of 10gbe devices. That is to say with five 9yr old walks in SHR1 and hides he of big ram. Addition in the 2 4tb IronWolf and 1 10tb Red to fill all some bays and now sees a variety that the marks writes in around 750MB/s with SHR2.
Quite happy to see my big files in his turn nine key house and zipping around a net.

Synology Generally done the good product.

Main esteem, but did not retreat the products after the guarantee expire.

Has attacked also some stars so that it only has or PCIe empty, as I can choose among caching, or 10GB ethernet, but can do not actuating so much.

The device of NOSE adds. I have had anteriorly skipped a model an old plus and has bought the Drobo while I have not been prepared to invert a money. I have known a drobo was mere of one taking goes ( records // his noisy). Quan Has achieved the capacity has bought this version of NOSE and like the side in comparison the side by side is calmer and has better software. To well sure purchase it another Synology again. (Taken a m2 pci-and expansion of hides. The only complaint is concealed does not have two pci-and empty has wanted in 10gbps Ethernet. Even so, while it is current location does not have to the capacity is not the breaker of roads. (Still It Can you pose a SSD in a void and designate that like hides but would lose the void of walk in a process.)

I have bought this to substitute 10 years sper strong, can-hungry server in my basement. Absolutely it produces brilliant, work so announced and is very happy. Shucked Some cheap WD 10TB EasyStore walks for storage. I have substituted also some adherents with calmer Noctua units. Has 3 ASSAULT 1 varieties that use BTRFS: 2x SSDs for a Synology You and VMs, 2x WD 10TB for means comunicacionales, and 2x WD 4TB for surveillance cold storage. Be it has warned; a CPU of Atom in this model is not the election adds to run any serious Virtual Machines. I am running 2 Server of Windows VMs: the controller of field and the Ubiquiti Controller. They are quite lazy, but takes a work has done. It has installed 32GB ECC Corsair RAM for 3 reasons: 1) the ram of dual canal runs faster 2) spare RAM for VMs 3) BTRFS require ECC RAM to provide protects of full data. BTRFS IS quite so near while you can take in 100% protects of data right now but only use ECC RAM, and that is to say a cheap more Synology NOSE with support for ECC. I have tried Canal of Surveillance and found the to be down-powered and unreliable. A CPU of the atom only is not until a task. Even so, like the NOSE and very basic VM host laws wonderfully. I behind in weekly in the WD 10TB EasyStore, and the change was once the month with an identical was-unit of place. Absolutely first class to maintain your sure data. Utmost work Synology!

Installing a Emby the software of means comunicacionales was quite sincere. Taking a Aforáis and-the manager of book dips up was the little more complicated why have had to install a Docker application of first container, then install and configure external. Felizmente Has on-line tutorials that help with an installation and setup.

There is at present has taken six 12 TB walks in a Synology, as I can bend my storage to add more walks. And yes it conceal it is not enough it has a unit of expansion that adds other 12 bays! But prime minister of mine upgrade goes to be adding more memory.

I near on the server of the half comunicacionales smaller for my daughter in law, using the Synology DS218+ with two 4 TB walks.

I have fill 6 space with WD 12TB Red, leaving I some room for future expansion. This 2419+ include easier that install the 10Gb NIC.

For any new to IN The, Synology setup the complete breeze. Really they know his audience.

In the first place, they are the big Synology defender partorisca on 10 years now and has had a lot Synology produced in mine setup, comprising 6 IN sound now. So much, Synology DSM is always easy to use and this IN sound any exception. It has taken the moment partorisca take a RAID 5 consistency of variety the control done (on 1 day), but once on and running, any subject. My beef with east comes with RSYNC the speed and a prize are paying partorisca east IN The. Has the slowest boot on top of time that his predecessors and more lens RSYNC time that his predecessors. Ossia He 64 has bitten processor (which is a main reason has bought he) and leave you partorisca build the volume so only on 16TB, the difference of one 32 has bitten variants of his rackmount first unit of the, which so only leaves until the 16TB alone volume. This in spite of, ossia the Realtek processor. It likes takings the look by means of a Synology lineup, will see a lot of different processors, Like this Intel Celeron, Realtek, Intel Atom, and Intel Xeon.

Have a RS816 that in fact has the tax of the main scrolling in RSYNC for on 10mbps. A RS816 also has fallen -7 fast seconds. A Synology DS918+ for comparison (a desk IN The, any rackmount) has fallen significantly faster and there is on 20mbps main RSYNC speed of backup.

For scrolling of Windows to one IN THE STREET SMB or Acronis backup, has taken roughly a speed of same backup for the 130GB image how was in another IN sound in a racks. But, for my chance of use, which is backing arrive all another IN sound in a racks to a RS819 for the second copy (I follows the photographer, as it can not lose photo), ossia bit it slow and his DS918+ desk IN sound much faster in -$ less.

A Synology racks the serious is built to the level of main has bitten that a desk IN The one of the east and create a racks the serious is aimed really further of a business side of things. In an end of a day, has to consider some chances of use and see if ossia a legislation IN THE for these chances of use. Again, in my particular chance, the majority of a RSYNC the work is done at night while I am sleeping, but an initial RSYNC seeding of a data was slower in this RS819 for the significant quantity, that was in another IN sound in mine rack. If used for mostly of scrolling of Windows, this sum of laws of the unit for that.

Had excited really roughly that buys the house IN The, separates to read descriptions that mentioned like the Synology could manacles run easily to to services like Plex, Docker, of etc. Results that Docker is not sustained at all in this version (as not installing mine Unifi controller), Plex can be installed but is basically useless reason a CPU does not have enough can take transcoding, etc.

Modify: it looks a DS418PLAY or DS918+ would have been very better for my needs (this in spite of not racking-trace).

Has loved also use for storage of photo but neither PhotoStation or the moments are quite that looked for (PhotoStation has the see primitive interface, and the moments looks geared so only to take photo of telephone).

Does not take Me bad, is surprising to take it rackmount IN The in this point of prize, and taste have he for backups to house etc. So only does not solve some questions loved it to -- and that some frames of calm marketing think it .

After the reliability and the reputation are factored has given consideration of alike frames quite small.

I experience and installed two 1TB Western Digital Gold Datacenter HDDs (model WD1005FBYZ), and all has a lot of fact well until this point. I have had my device setup and when being announces roughly three month and is repeatedly state pleased with this action , particularly a bed / write / speed. Has update a device to a later version of DSM when I initially dipped the on, and has done like the little time of then, always without @@subject - something am coming to expect of Synology.

Setup Of a device was like this easy as with forward Synology devices. Caveat Emptor: I have possessed previously the different model Synology IN The, and has been in him partorisca to the long of the decade, as when I say 'easy' bad that an interface is relatively intuitive to an administrator has experienced. This also means that there is not founding an interface that tries impedirprpers to configure a device in a way that has loved.

One of to the some things really like on Synology is that they continue to resupply of plenaries has looked versions of his software (DSM) partorisca 'lower-finalise' models. No each model sustains some characteristic was, but there is not of the arbitrary limitations (at least that has found) is imposed like the result to purchase a model in another.

Has has purchased also the four TB Western Digital Elements external hard walk (model WDBWLG0040HBK-NESN) to use like the device of backup jointly with a Synology IN The. I plugged in an outside HDD, powered he on, and one IN recognised it to You and he available to use immediately. Now I have it nightly the backup has planned this has been that careers without any questions. One of some good things in a newer version(s) of DSM is that an agent of backup has been improved and now natively supports rotating backups. Also I have the READY test has planned, and configured it to email me in a chance of the newest versions of DSM resultant available, as well as in a chance of the backup has failed, has failed . Test, or other diverse chances.

Is mainly state using this device with SAMBA / CIFS, but has used also FTP / FTPS. All desquels has done exactly like this expected, and with good action. Transferring big files of Windows 7 and CIENTOS have clocked on 100 MB/s has sustained, although I appear to be maxing out of an only Gb eithernet port in a system (any-IN The) side, as one IN can be Them able to sustain main throughput.

A device is quite calm, and has the quite low power draw, included down uploads.

@In rodeo, this IN acting them to You add. It resupplies the together very good of characteristic in the very reasonable prize, although a rackmount the factor of form commands something of the prize (inside a row of prize) when compared the DS models.

I am impressed by a Synology operating system, and a global creation of a unit is acceptable. Having 4x LAN the ports partorisca the aggregation of Link is utmost. Having 2 of them when being 10ports of Action is quite impressive in this point of prize (I are not that it uses a capacity but could be well for a future). A processor of the ARM is not one the majority of powerful, but is appropriate for my needs. If calm the plot of heavy video transcoding the control with a software wants to use to do sure will have the powerful quite processor. A unit is very calm except a grinding/clicking of one drives as it will vary according to that and that use of type.

This in spite of, a creation of some trays of disk is shockingly bad. Some trays have the free loaded cradle that explosions out of a door of a tray and some slides of era of what whole. A small sliver of plastic slides out of a side of a tray then slides behind in to resist a walk in place. There is not any ray involved and so only a barest has thought investigation be given to dampen vibrations. I can listen quite strong buzzing has caused of vibrations of a walk against a plastic of a paving. It goes it was when wrist in some doors of walk or otherwise fiddle with an orientation of a chance. Some trays celery quite economic and a cradle-mechanism to close uploaded is not impressive.

Ossia My prime minister IN THE DEVICE as they are not sure like competitors stack up in of the terms of qualities of build for prize. Still I give it 3 stars been due to action/of prize and global utility. I think that that some trays can be modded the bit to dampen vibrations ( has found some on-line ideas) to the equal that will see like this resists up in a long term.

MODIFICATION: there is remarked that some of a vibration is due to no in that has walks in some of some bays, as it can be less than a subject when all some bays are full. There are some pieces of hule tiny in an interior of some trays which would have to that it help. I am adding the star behind in as the subject is not like this bad to the equal that have thought, but still seat a quality of build and the creation of some bays of walk is sub-pair.

MODIFICATION 2 February 2019: I have been that bolt with this unit for the while now and has to that say a vibration and buzzing the subjects have worsened. I have fill now all some bays of walk. A buzzing comes and goes seemingly at random, but when wrist in a front of a bay of walk goes era. I have tried it walks of transmission and walk caddies around to try and isolate which is causing a question, but never fully goes era. I have contacted Synology the support and an only joint can give me is soyake sure some walks are securely semi-detached'. I have bought also an extra 8TB walk, swapped in and has reconstructed a RAID, and has not done any difference. It maintains in alcohol, this sound is not a sound of a HDD spindle or a boss that looks for. I have tried some walks externally using the boss of USB and any of them is exhibiting any odd or subject @vibration when they are out of a chance. Like this more I can say, it is neither a plastic on metal of a tray and frame, or something inside one of some trays he, possibly a keyed socket 'locks' concealed he. I mark creation very poor in my opinion. The supposition are was to buy a variety of velcro band, fat, and fulminas extra the troubleshoot the, the one who the waste of time.

Has left Drobo to buy this unit after doing the tonne of investigation in a better option. Now strongly I disagree with very other descriptions that has said this was a way to go ... It is not one the majority of user friendly interface to start with and has required the plot of extra time to dip on things that with my leading system was easy and intuitive. Recognising that any all the world is the person of technology , thinks that ossia a point of entity. They are quite technology -savvy and has been defied the plot for this unit and his dashboard.

When I in the first place the place has had arrives subject with the take to dip the limits have shared in dossiers and of the users. Neither it could take car to time to back until a thing any quantity that has done or that time I reconfigured that. I have contacted support and after the few months of any one the plot of support, has given finally on and is resulted the rock in my centrical mandate. Thanks to coronavirus has had more time in my hands recently, then , gave it another goes. This time, has discovered after an hour and the half on support of cat, that has limitations of hardware' that is by train to prevent me to do that I need to do to back on 3 macs to a system and the together limits like this T does not suck a life out of him in any paving of time. It has said of another way,, a unit has selected, a DS1817, has such 'limitations'. It was a lot of disturbed that lean done the year has not shared this information with me - and am still very sure reason, reason would owe that have. In this point could be returned a thing and has begun on. But it has not spent.

Limitation 1: Any capacity to dip the limit of the quota in the file has shared. Limitation 2: Any capacity to dip the big more TB limit of quota (max is 4059 GB) in the file of USER BIG QUESTION when backing on 8 TB value of Mac hard walks to a thing. Limitation 3: it does not leave for btrfs - Gesundheit :-) - which is a reason for 1 and 2. THIS In spite of, there is no easy to find info in his web of place that describes this product to a terracing that would indicate it a question that this would present or with backups of Car of the Time. It has said of another way,, unless you have known to look for 'BTRF described' (I not even with which month to research this thing) then would finalise in a same situation as me. Limitation 4: Still without limits, T is a lot of finicky with him. Have Still to have it seamless experience of backup. If it had not paid so much for him, probably it would begin on.

Inferior line: If you are looking for the Apple adds and easy T solution for multiple macs. It would look elsewhere. It can still it uses it? Yes. But, it will be limited to so only T the backups and he probably will fill on quickly. This has been supposition to be at least the solution of 5 years for knots and reasons leaves for big swappable the pipe would owe that it has been ideal for a longitude haul, but according to sustaining has does not operate real-around to the respect of any when being pas able to dip the main limit in an action or some users, included although a capacity of volume is enormous. Sigh.

There is also any one the application of local/software to run a dashboard (like drobo). They are not the defender of of the this. It is 100 internet -the dashboard has based. Any ideal in my alcohol for security and especially a low internet. They are in the rural zone. Raisin.

Has bought this thing to save my data and to Touch files of mine of means comunicacionales with my player of Android. It is it is a degradation. It saves the files but he constantly the fact to the sound likes is looking for files when they are not that it looks the video or looking for he for files. Every time I clicks my mouse in my computer, begins chunking was. This thing has to that no that unless specifically it begins to access the file in the or do the monthly cleaner. The walks any last but the few years in this tax and in some prizes have paid for my walks, would be more economic that take the technology to reconstruct a platters if the only 16gb the walk has failed.

Has the 16TB the on has measured limits of volume. Web UI and the fish of speed is slow.

Ossia My second Synology IN The. My old some works like the field but has limits in capacities of storage. It has taken one 1817 to substitute mine 415Game and some drops of tax of scrolling to file to 0 kb/s often and just stays there for hours. Sometimes it begins on again, and sometimes I owe that reseat a boss of coverage. My old IN THE has not had never this subject. I have changed out of a boss of coverage, has has changed to put you in a backside, dipped an allocution of IP, has update a software, and a question still persists. It transfers files for 1-15 minutes then a start of subjects to arrive. Some the hard walks are well, a transmission is transmission , some bosses are well, has taken my old IN THE off-line when transferring other hard walks, connected it direly to my computer, and a question still persists. Has the entrance of pending question with Synology now.

Has been that runs this in the 10coverage of G. I have had it issues with my NIC is in my overheating of COMPUTER, but this thing has operated rock-solid with big speed 10 action networking, which is as differentiated this external product that is built so only-in and calms that can expect to do with Synology quality of support and WORLD-WIDE CLASS. I love this company!
5 / 5 Raquel
These works of what as the field. It has taken some time to take it setup correctly and yes loves everything to do hook one IN THE directly to your subject, load plex, and turns to the server of means comunicacionales adds. Any question, solid hardware.

Synology Does not disappoint . I have been with them the few years and enough each product is the winner . I have done the deception with east a, as I have seen has had 10GbE built in of the ports, and has assumed was SFP+, but the results are RJ45. I maintained it still. I have bought another version -DS1817+ as there is SFP+ in PCI NICs. Has both for backups, and also rack main of diagram of the trace like my production. It could not be happier, and does not have any complaint. Usually I have a lot of complaints. His support is slow I supposition. Here, I have found the complaint.
4 / 5 Dell
Easy to setup. It takes the moment for some walks to prepare for the use but the law add and has possibility of enormous storage.
4 / 5 Belia
Was easy to setup, has Added my disks and he said me to the knots inclusos one of them there has been a subject was unaware of. Has the big row of applications can install like this the thing in fact is running Linux in his core.

Spend an extra bucks and take the good product. Synology outperforms A competition every time.

has purchased this IN THE to dip on the backups partorisca my PC is house. A ISCSI the function is very stable, has the storage has shared on two different servers.

This box is ridiculously slow.
Is doing Any video that the files have facilitated of those who attack your time.
Wants turn thisitem. And take a ds1817+ instead.

Rodeo:

Pros:
or the Easiest interface
or the Enormous cast of applications can install on that.

Gilipollas:
Or That RAID of call 5 can lose all the data with fault of alone disk.
Or The software is like this the trace of bug needs the constant current of patches. Many of the which are patches in his patches. Many of the as it caused it also partorisca lose all the data. See his forms partorisca sustain if precise chance.
Or The support is useless. It takes days partorisca take to send the useless can'and the answered that does clears never read your subject.
Or there is rampant the subjects with a power distributes partorisca fail. Google ynology' And 'the fault of supply of the can' he precise chance.
Or When you run in any of an a lot of fail known situations his support in fact will say you that precise back on data in his behind up devices because they are not of confidence.

Details:
That is calling RAID five still can lose all the data because of fault of alone disk. They are too economic to use buffered ports like this when any of some hard walks fails it entirely can freeze a whole device. Included some lights in a front can take flashes. Leaving you any option but the reboot he in the point has lost all the data. His support has taken three days to answer. With which which said to us in fact the data stored in Synology devices of precise backup be to look reason his products can not be trusted.

A bit those that months later one of his constant patches caused it to lose all one is walks of trace . Once it has taken he more than the days to resupply the useless response that denies a question has thought even was very documented in his forums of own support.

After the year and the half a supply to be able to entirely failed without warning. It Googling Looked is the subject wide propagation known for more than 5 years have not fixed never.

In any point was any in a company surprised or embarrassed for an absurdly terrible his products are.

Taken my DS1517 on Seated and solid of looks. This in spite of, a setup has not been still to soften at all. One IN has maintained Him to fail during start, so only tip the start fracasado and at all more, there there is literally any message of the error and I have had any clue that to do. Has has had to that reboot one IN The and reinitialize to again and again, finally with which a lot of test one IN sound now on and that careers. I will maintain an eye is and perhaps updates later.

Update: (changed to 1 star) One IN THE ONLY disappears again. I can it does not find anymore on . And there is not any instruction at all like this literally has not been that to do now, and is almost impossible to achieve his support of technology. A lot disappointed.

Has purchased this solution together with 4 - 8TB NL-SAS walks to substitute the pair of 4TB USB has attached walks. Cloud the storage has based so only will take you like this far. It comes with several disadvantages; an only main one this speed . Calm also can be limited to measure to file also. First of all ossia the device of RAID ; like the only fails the walk will not cause loss of data. Segundo; ossia like this more than just the IN The. There is the big number of applications of server that calms can run you in an IN THE to resupply additional services. You can also upgrade the in a fly;, without that owes backup everything of your data, upgrade and then restore. I use mine for streaming and storage of RAW photo. I have integrated even he with my AppleTV with a DS application of Video. And more than all can be integrated with you cloud-solve of the backup has based.

At all is bad with this model so only a lot the well. Have has not wanted the take one 1517+ reason so only have not required all these extra characteristics like a PCIe space or a Sr.2 space. It takes a work done and the one who any except this thing is so only like this slow. When I Require to store the his main files, always will see/to listen a fight. To good sure would not recommend this IN The to any one. No lame reason Synology would do one 1517+ and 1517 to have such enormous divergence but I supposition are has had to that to be for my deceptions.

Update:This thing gave so only the good fright. Has update a firmware and all of the sudden can not see any of my storage. It cleaned it it was everything . Has thinks that that it is reason could a lot of he the same the bosses is suitable firmware update.

Has expected the day and is trace one finds synology wed put again and somehow has taken my things behind ( has to that king-download DSM this in spite of for some reason), does not know exactly like this spends or something is bad with this model. Probably I will contact Synology support of technology later. This really scared me; I have thought that that all have has gone for ever. I will maintain 2 backups now to prevent if this spends again. Has this for 3 days and already is that I scare has taken. Again, to good sure would not recommend this model at all.
