Great product. My first NAS, and very happy with it. Does exactly what I need it to do. Ensures I have all of my music files available to me regardless of which of my laptops I am using. Id prefer if it wasnt white, but thats purely cosmetic. Would recommend.

The NAS box is amazing, the features are too, For the price. Can use Plex! IP cameras, backup your phone pictures automatically, oh yes and it is accessible from your PC and smart TV (If it supports NAS)

Massive improvement on my previous wd product, worth the investment surveillance station and ds video being two very good apps, rock solid with external access as well

Good little home NAS drive, works great for streaming films through the house, as a backup server and also as a security camera NVR all at the same time, the seemingly low spec is no problem at all with the efficient synology operating system
