David, Bradford

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The synology OS, while simple takes a little getting used to, but is intuitive. I had a an issue with some of the preinstalled bloatware like the photo viewer/media server which once I'd loaded some photos and videos on started 'converting' them all. After some googling, it turns out it's creating thumbnails for everything, which isn't necessary and looked like it'd take weeks to complete.
Bad points:
The fan failed after 3 days. It wasn't worth invoking the warranty as it was easy to swap out and I had a spare, but thought it worth mentioning.
