    And people thought that Drobo was a complete rip-off. Reply

    This product is not competing with Drobo, they have other units that are cheaper that don't include extra network ports would be more applicable for comparison. I've been using a 2009 2 disk system for years and haven't had a single issue with it, its still taking the new firmware they regularly release. Speeds have increased so I've been thinking of getting a newer NAS from them. Reply

    Just got my 1812+ two weeks ago and love love love it. It replaced a readynas ultra 6+ (I'll never buy another netgear product again, after they dropped support like a bad habit). The synology is fast and has a ridiculous feature set. If you're a super Linux guy, there's probably very little that you can't get working on any box. But for a regular schmo like me, the DSM gui enables all of it and let's me feel like a champ. Having looked at all options (learned not to rush in after the netgear fiasco), QNAP and Thecus have some nice options. But synology's software is the gold standard. The ONLY thing I wish they would do is have more engineers working the forums, instead of requiring tickets for everything. Reply

    we have both Synology and QNAP boxes and
    find the Synology seem a bit more resiliant if that's
    the word for uptime.
    QNAP has great chops but not quite as good...
    just saying from what we've seen.
    i do have issues with all these products serving up
    operator error messages that only say something
    is offbase but not link to the correct utility or ap.
    that could use a lot of improvement.
    i also have to wonder if adding more NIC ports will only
    saturate the Synology faster :)
    we do that all the time.
