you need to know a little about Linux if you want to use an external HDD for back up, but that's about it.

Dan, New Forest

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
* Fast - beautiful overkill for a home network! ;)
* If your network switch supports it, link aggregation of both gigabit NICs
* Easy to configure - web admin screens are a joy to use
* Easy to set up a fault-tolerant mirror across two drives
* Schedule automatic backups of the NAS to an external USB drive (or remote storage)
* Lots of 'app packages' can be installed to extend its functionality further
* Synology iOS and Android apps to listen to music, play videos, monitor surveillance cams and more
* Plenty enough poke to run as a web server, SQL DB server, CMS, GIT etc should you need to
* Good support from Synology
Bad points:
* Expensive (but in a different league to budget NAS solutions)
* If you need them, surveillance camera licences are expensive (first one is free though)
* After 2 weeks internal fan started failing! (Synology support were responsive though, and dispatched a new fan within hours of reporting it)
