"Very Expensive and Definitely Not Worth The Money"0.5 starson by AnuradhaRaman
Pros: The good part of this product is its speed and its ability to sustain network connectivity.
Cons: The firmware is not user friendly, even for users with good networking skills. This product claims to have bundle of features, which are all under developed in regard to their software usability and flexibility. So its not worth the money.
Summary: They are tons and tons of issues listed in the support forums of Synology regarding indexing of files, settings related to its applications like photo station, file station, web station and almost all the applications this product has. I have also personally experienced issues with Indexing and using this as a media server. Installing a 3rd party application is a challenge.
This product is meant only for office use where it can only share and store files over the network. But I would still not recommend it as for the price asked there are much better options available.
I would recommend purchasing a good non server class machine with an intel i5 or similar processor with a RAID backplane for HDD and use this for network storage, which would be worthy option.
Conclusion is that this product is a good effort by Synology but is definitely not a worthy its price. I do repent purchasing this product and hence I give it just one star.
