Synology DS216 reviews

6TB (2 x 3TB) DiskStation DS216 2-Bay NAS Server Kit with WD Drives is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good I have only had this installed for a week, but after some initial hassles, it is now working perfectly on Windows 10. I haven't tried it on Windows 7 as yet, but there could be hassles. It took about five emails back and forward to Synology support to get it working the way I wanted, but they were very helpful and responsive. The machine seems to have lots of capabilities, probably a lot more than many people need. All I wanted was for it to be visible from a Windows PC without having to map a drive letter (like M:) to see the files. Under Windows 10 it still does not become visible as a network device under Network, at least not initially. After I put \\(Device name) into the QuickAccess bar (and got rid of the QuickAccess word) the system found the device and now all I need to do is to hit the down (menu) arrow on QuickAccess and I can see it (after clicking on the device name). After that it shows up as a networked device, along with all the other devices on the network. As there is no QuickAccess under Windows 7, I have no idea at this stage how I will get visibility of the device. Hopefully I won't have to use the archaic drive letter approach.
