    Solid and easy to set up

    • Many possibilities
    • good support via own forum
    • various language settings including Dutch including help files
    • Internal memory 2GB expandable to 6GB
    • expensive

    Previously had the DS213+ but also wanted to use VM, this is possible via Docker via this NAS. The price of a synology NAS is high, but then you also have good support via the synology forum and decent packages.

    Good Nas system

    Tom | 12 August 2020 | In the version: NAS | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Speed
    • Gigabit port 2x
    • Dsm 6 is good but soon Dsm 7 is going to get better
    • No included HDD
    • cannot be connected directly to computer

    I only use the Nas to store photos and with Photo station this is very easy and clear,
    Control software is good but can be slow at times but hopefully this will soon be a thing of the past with the arrival of Dsm 7
    the new operating software from Synology.

    Top device

    • User friendly
    • Fast
    • Many possibilities (apps)
    • Not the quietest
    • slow wake up

    If, like me, you come from a cheap network drive, this NAS is a real experience. I've had it for about two months now. I mainly use the NAS to stream series and movies to TV, and it does that well. Despite the fact that the device supports Plex, I use that standard app from Synology to stream, this meets my requirements. Other users say this NAS is quiet, I don't think so. I live small, so the NAS has to be in the same room where I sleep. If he is busy with tasks you can hear this well. Even when the NAS is in sleep mode and you want to wake it up, it is quite slow compared to my previous system. Once awake it goes fast. The device is pricey, more you get a lot in return. Despite the few minuses, there are also a lot of pluses. The NAS is very user-friendly to set up. And the adjustment possibilities are enormous (even down to the brightness of the LED lights). Multitasking is not a problem for this device. I certainly do not regret the purchase.

    A storage system with a good price/quality ratio
    • Small and quiet
    • Expandable memory up to 20GB
    • Simple and clear management
    • Many software extensions through Packages
    • Docker and Virtual Machine Manager
    • Standard memory only 2GB which is too little for Virtual Machine Manager

    I chose a + series NAS from Synology because of the possibility to use Docker and Virtual Machine Manager so that you can turn the NAS into a PC in a NAS.
    The support of Docker with which you can use, for example, Pi-Hole (ad blocker) or HomeAssistant (home automation) makes the NAS very versatile.
    Of course, the basic function, saving files, is also very good on this NAS.
    What is a must, especially if you want to run Docker or Virtual Machine Manager, is a memory upgrade of 8 or 16GB.
    Fortunately, you can use standard DDR4 2400mt/PC4-19200 laptop memory for this.

    Despite its higher price compared to other 2 bay NAS, it is well worth its price.

    • Speed
    • silently
    • Lots of software
    • Many possibilities
    • This good price
    • Sometimes good manuals are a bit hard to find

    After years of enjoying using a DS212+, I replaced it with a DS220+. Notably, the much larger is quickly an experience.

    Does exactly what I need
    • Easy to install
    • Lots of functionality
    • Everything in-house

    Replaces an older model from the budget series. This one runs a lot smoother.

    • Many possibilities

    Is very easy to configure and is super fast with writing and reading. I saved all the photos in RAW format and making the full backup (more than 600Gb) from the iMac to the Synology via Wifi was arranged within a few hours. Viewing the photos from any device is also super fast. Very satisfied.

    Nice NAS with many possibilities
    • Fast
    • Not cheap

    Bought to replace my DS211j and made a world of difference. In terms of speed, there has been a huge improvement. Been busy with the installation for a while. the many possibilities. The speed transfer is fine. Files can also be accessed via, for example, an iPad. Have equipped the NAS with two 4Tb WD Red plus hard drives. Is a good combination
