Anthony, Colchester

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very stable, feels sturdy and the software is very user friendly.

If you're looking at cheaper units and in any doubt whether this is the one to choose, just go for it.
Bad points:
LAN access can be sluggish when downloading with no speed restriction. If this is likely to bother you, and you can stretch to the 112 or even the 112+, it may be worth it.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
very easy to set up, provided you can work a screwdriver. the software is superb and provided a linux style GUI in a browser windows which will be familiar to users of any OS.
They are a plethora off application you can install on the device to provide which ever function you desire.
There are a strong collection of associate apps on mobile platforms which enable you to view content on your mobile device and also stream to apple TV or chrome cast
Bad points:
this model is lacking in memory so the initial data transfers were slow and only being a single bay device provides no option for redundancy.

John, Malton

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Basically, these units are reliable and do a fine job. Synology have been in the business several years and I have not had a problem with using them. For business the raid 2 units are probably better, but home and small business the 1 unit - the higher the price the better the performance with multiple users.
Bad points:
Synology could really do with preparing a 'how to' guide. You need to search their FAQ and knowledge base to set some things up and you need some understanding of what you are doing. Shares and users can be a complicated process.
