    Very versatile, one of the best hardware purchases I did for home in a while. I set it up with VPN and Time Machine backup. Even did a Time Machine restore at 6000 miles distance! Read more

    Love its simplicity!! Once the hard-drives were set up, I got up and running within 10-15 mins! OS is also very nice and user-friendly. At last but not least, I find that the Synology online documentation is pretty good! It's comforting to see a rich documentation when starting using a new product. Read more

    I have used Synology products for work applications in the past and found them reliable and easy to use. This product is for a home application and it has been just as good so far, but will have to wait a while to judge the long term reliability. Read more

    I have replaced a small business server with Synology DS. It offers most of the key network and file services in an easy to configure platform. DNS, LDAP, DHCP, Cloud backup, and remote access all work great. Read more
