Perfect for backing up my data, downloading files and using as a dlna server for 2 smart TVs. No need for a full server running 24/7 any more. Perfect.

Haider,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
1- Aesthetically pleasing!
2- Easy to install the hard drives.
3- Easy to operate.
4- Fantastic software. It allows the user to create, hide and edit shared files absolutely intuitively! I just loved it first time I used it!
5- It is simply brilliant all round.
6-Well done Synology!
Bad points:
Software problem:
I first added a second user and edited some shared files --> then I decided to restore the original manufacturer's setting --> although every thing was restored correctly ... the logging in window continued to display 2 users! instead of only one ....which obviously should't be the case ....
