Nice review. It's your first one for TPU I assume so welcome aboard.
Nice review, but this Synology box also forgot what the DS106 forgot, they forgot to include NFS. Its not all Windows out there, there are also a few Unix people who think this box could be an addition to their services.
We ourselfs got two boxes in a multivendor Heterogeneous environment (aka a mix of vendors in a Windows/unix environment), for unix we can only use the ftp option, for our linux boxes we use Samba but a native NFS client would be preferable. I hope that the people at Synology will think of the unix community and include a NFS client in their next firmware release....
i assume you mean nfs server?
Nice Work Tau. Agreed I have never heard of Synology before. I thought this was gonna be like Symbology or something
I purchased a DS-207 in late June 2007. The unit seemed to work OK for about 3 weeks, when it began locking up, requiring a complete power off to restart. After restart, the unit would function for a number of hours, less if moving large files. On Aug 1 2007 I contacted Synology about the problem, and I've had numerous emails back and forth with them. They finally admitted on Aug 14 there is a problem with the unit. Unfortunately they don't seem to want to send me a replacement. Now, they are suggesting that they might be able to fix the problem with a software update, but that "might" be available in 1 or 2 weeks. I'm beginning to think the 1 year warranty is useless.
If I had to do it again, I would go looking for a product from another manufacturer.
