I did a lot of research before taking the NAS plunge for a home network storage device. Almost every review of the Synology line was positive and I'm very happy with my purchase, paired it with 2 x 3TB drives in Raid 1, setup was a snap, the software asked me how I wanted it configured, a few clicks and voila!
I use the Android app to stream and download to both my phone and tablet, works like a dream! Can't even here it running, supper quiet!
J'ai ajouté ce boitier NAS à mon réseau multi média qui a été bien servi sans problème depuis deux années par un Synology DS-211J. Le DS-212J est plus rapide au démarrage et à l'arrêt que le DS211j pour le reste je ne vois aucune différence à part qu'il manque sur le DS-212J un bouton et un connecteur USB frontaux pour backup. Le boitier du DS-212J est plus large que le DS-211J ce qui le rend plus stable. L'interface WEB DMS est très bien pensée et assez simple d'utilisation pour les débutant et peu contenter les plus exigeants. Je possède aussi un boiter NAS Q-Nap TS-112 et je trouve que l'interface WEB Synology est plus simple d'utilisation. Ce boitier DS-212j est définitivement un très bon achat.
I purchased this NAS about one year ago. It has worked flawlessly ever since. I use it as media server. I have two WD 1 TB drives in a RAID 1 configuration. It's now time for an upgrade and I have my eyes on the 213+! The best thing about the Synology products is the OS. It functions very well and Synology continuously updates the OS by adding features and apps. Great product and highly recommended.
Behaves like it says. Price matched it to $200 and at that price a good deal - I no longer have to keep a whole machine running 24/7. Performance seems pretty good. The P2P service could be a bit more flexible - you don't get a lot of configuration options compared to PC based clients - but works fine. People said to get this rather than one of the cheaper NAS devices and I agree - good product. One thing - watch out for which sub-version you get there are 2 or 3 versions of the 212 with significantly different features.
This NAS is fantastic. Serves up media to my PS3 and my mediagate flawlessly. The remote access works well. I have 2x2tb drives in it without raid of any kind. The tech support is quick to respond. All in all a great addition to my network!
