El nas es muy viejo ,solo tiene 128mb de ram.Si usas el emule y bitorrent a la vez con unos cuantas cosas bajando pues es posible que no puedas hacer nada mas.Puedes configurarlo para que descargue sólo por la noche.Es el punto negativo , puedes hacer mil cosas...pero no hay potencia aunque esto ya lo sabía cuando lo compre y por eso le he puntuado al máximo

Set up is very easy. The Synology Assistant helped with drive formatting (ext2 I think) and getting your administration account going. It took a bit for me to implement all the settings I wanted, but they are very clearly explained in the management screen, and easily changed. The interface is browser based and accessible from all modern browsers regardless of platform. I access it a lot from my iPad.
So what can it do? I use it primarily as a media server. It has worked extremely well in this regard. It has UPnP which is picked up by the PS3, Xbox360, and the WDTVLive as just another media server. Streaming is fine without stutter (on a wired network). It has an itunes server, which I use for a large library of Apple Lossless files. This can be served to iTunes (obviously) but Synology has a nifty iPhone/iPad app that will pick up the library as well and transcode just fine. The Audio Station web interface however will only play mp3's, so it isn't as practical to stream to another computer in the absence of iTunes.
The file manager software is easy to set up with a Public folder if you want to share stuff with friends. It is equally easy to set up a photo gallery and slideshow.
The Download Station bittorrent client is fantastic. Seems fast, and can be set to stop seeding automagically. The great thing about it is that you can either browse to the torrent from the client to the .torrent on your pc, or if you are remote, or on a smartphone or iPad, just paste the file into the client. No need to be at your home pc.
Lastly, I use it as remote storage. On a Mac it will appear as a share point, and can mount on your desktop as a volume, which makes it nice to drag and drop files. I've had no trouble at all with read/write permissiony things. I use it as a tertiary back up for movies, photos, and docs. I don't use it as a Time Machine disk.
It's very quiet. Once in a while you can hear the hard drive spin up, but that's about it.
The Synology forums are great. I haven't had to deal with the company yet.
Just a lovely product, very well thought out, relatively easy to use, though with a lot of settings for experts if desired. Great interface, platform independent, quiet. I can't think of any particular downside to the unit as it has done everything I wanted from it.
Anyway, so far it is only one issue and it appears to be software. Until this keeps recurring, I cannot give this product a better than 3 stars. If subsequent software updates from either Synology or Apple fix this issue (evidence would be many months of not getting the TM error message), I may revisit this review and revise the star rating.
UPDATE (3/8/2012) - I think over 4 months ago, Synology provided an update for their DSM software (DSM 3.3? don't remember...), and ever since updating to it, I have not had any further issues with TM whatsoever! Works like a charm (= I don't even realize when it works - kudos to TM as well!).
The server can be used as an offline server; meaning that it does not need to be connected to the internet and be used through another company/service. Western Digital uses Mionet for accessing their NAS servers. In my case, I wanted to store sensitive files (finances, business documents, etc) on the server, and I didn't want another company stepping in and handling my files. I wanted a direct connection through my personal network to access the files from the server.
You will need a standard 3.5 inch hard drive for this device. Keep in mind that Synology has a list of supported/unsupported hard drives. This can easily be obtained through their website. From what I've gathered, this Synology drive will support most modern SATA drives. This product will generally have some issues with the first generation SATA hard drives.
The product will also support standard 2.5 (laptop) hard drives, but you will need a bracket for that. This can easily be obtained through Amazon, eBay, etc.
Some individuals have complained about the noise this product makes. With this unit, I can barely hear the device running. There are two factors that can contribute to this, the hard drive and the fan. The fan speed can be controlled by the software (I'll go into details about this later in the review) on the server. So, the fan noise is controllable. At default settings, the fan noise is hardly noticeable. The hard drive, depending on the brand, model, and age, can create noise that some would find irritating. I'm using a Western Digital hard drive.
The software to install the operating system (in simpler terms, the software to run the server) will be located on the disc in a folder called DSM. During the initial setup, the software will ask for this software; browse the folder and select the software. WARNING: Be sure to select the correct software, there will be multiple software files. The files are named after the models they are for, so search for you model (in this case: DS110j). The setup will install the software automatically.
The software on the disc will search your network for the Synology server; you can have multiple servers on your network; the software will support multiple servers at the same time.
Multiple computers can simultaneously access the server, however it cannot access the same folder simultaneously. Meaning that Computer A and Computer B can be logged into Account A and be using Folder A and Folder B (one computer each), but it will not actively share folders between two or more computers at the same time. Meaning that Computer A and Computer B cannot be accessing the Folder A at the same time.
The server will need to format the hard drive before it can use it, make sure to back up any data before initializing the drive. The server uses the ext2 file system.
It is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. For Linux, I know that it will run with Ubuntu, Fedora, and OpenSuse (and Suse), without any problems.
To access the operating system on the server, you need to use a web browser. What I found very pleasing was that the operating system interface acts like an actually computer. Meaning that instead of acting like a website where the entire page refreshes/reloads in order to view something different, this device will open windows within the user interface. For network users (such as myself), this is a huge plus.
It's fairly simple to use. The basic setup instructions are located on the disc, but if you have a general understanding of computers and networks, they are not really needed.
Customer support was very quick and helpful. I had called them to ask specific questions with regards to my home network setup, the person I spoke with was knowledgeable and quick.
The user interface that the server operating system uses is very beautiful and visually pleasing. The navigation controls in the Control Panel and operating system in general is very easy to use. The navigation controls are similar to the control panel on Mac OS X.
I've played videos off the server and not once did it jump or stutter while playing the video. I even tried to stress it out by jumping forward and back in the video to see if the connection would drop or return an error, the server gave no hint of a problem.
The server has built in SMART and thermal monitoring software.
After the initial setup, it doesn't go into further explanation on how to use the server or access/modify the settings on the server. This is where you need to have some basic understanding of computers and networks. This personally wasn't an issue for me, but this may pose problems to other who are not familiar with this area. There are help documents on the disc and online that will provide a basic understanding.
I am extremely happy with this product. This was a nice addition to my network. It was easy to setup, easy to use, and simply just worked. I previously used a Western Digital NAS, and had a lot of errors with it. Don't get me wrong, I use Western Digital hard drives in every desktop and server system that I own. They're very reliable, but their NAS drives are headaches based on my experiences with them.
I'm currently looking into purchasing a few more of these devices for my network.
