Most helpful reviews

Michael, Warwick

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Simple to get up and running, although I'm only using it as a simple storage the moment as I'm only a week into using the NAS.

The functionality available is relatively vast, which looks to be very good and much more than I had expected, but as I'm not a true techie I'm expecting to take a significant amount of time to configure the NAS drive to do exactly what I want it to do.

There are many utilities and apps available with the NAS to "do stuff"!

The NAS is quiet and as I've got it tucked away in the corner of a bedroom, it should be fine.
Bad points:
The only bad point encountered so far is that, although the documentation is good, I'm finding it very hard to decided upon the best configuration for what I want to achieve. It would be better if there was some "if you want to do this then this is what you need to do" documentation.....but I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Relatively easy to set up. No need to change router settings. Can easily view docs, pics (even RAW files) or listen to music on a tablet or smart phone. On-line help good when you find the right section. Silent.
Bad points:
Can be a bit daunting at first. Sometimes difficult to find the right help section.

Manufacturer's Description

Synology® DiskStation DS213j is a budget-friendly 2-bay NAS server for small offices and home use, specifically designed to provide a solution for file storage and sharing with data protection for your home environment with low power consumption, quiet operation and reliability. Running on DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, it delivers ease of use and variety of features.

High-Performance Multimedia Processing with Smart Energy Management
With a RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment, Synology DS213j delivers read and write speeds of over 100MB/sec and 70MB/sec respectively, allowing you to share an entire Blu-ray quality video in less than 3 minutes. The built-in Floating-Point Unit CPU speeds up thumbnail processing to enhance photo viewing at different resolutions, while the large 512MB RAM ensures maximum speed when running multiple multimedia applications.

Synology DS213j is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Not only does it provide a large 92mm fan and smart airflow to keep the system running cool 24/7, but its noise dampening design makes it quiet compared to a public space in a library. Support for Wake on LAN/WAN, multiple scheduled power on/off, and hard drive hibernation can further reduce power consumption and operating costs.
