I did a ton of research and pretty much assessed that Synology was the way to go given the alleged hardware reliability and the excellent software. I bought the 1512+ because it was the newest, fastest and best NAS to host the capacity I needed. Because it was so new it didnt have any reviews on Amazon when i bought it a couple weeks ago. I figured the "+" was a plus right?

Nah.

I got the BBOD after restarting for the first time and lost access to my three drives. Synology support is trying to help by logging into the system remotely but for one reason and another they've caused me to have another inaccessible drive. I'm pissed.

So now I sit here, beside a big black box, four shiny inaccessible disks, and an $1100 hole in my pocket.

I guess i just picked the wrong model. The 1511 seems great. I also appreciate their support crew for trying but I'm submitting an RMA or refund today. I can't trust this model until I know my data is safe on it because isn't that what we buy it for in the first place?

****************************UPDATE 05/02/12**********************************

The Synology support team had finally offered me an advanced RMA a couple days before the official announcement about the dysfunctional units. They didn't initially offer me compensation for the shipping but I was fine to just get the problem unit off my hands and pay for the shipping myself. Lucky that I procrastinated however because they sent me a UPS pre-paid shipping label 3 days after they issued the RMA. So, thanks Synology.

So I got their new unit and figured I would wait a week or so before posting.

A while back, I got a new wireless router which had the ability to support an external USB (2.0) hard disk and to treat that as a network-attached-storage device. This worked acceptably, but there were issues. The "DLNA" functionality wasn't very well-designed (something I've only recently been able to confirm, now that I have this device up and running). The speed of transfer was painfully slow. And the device itself would fail on a regular basis, both dropping out and becoming "undetected" and, worse, corrupting data during larger transfers (such as, say, movie files). So, this quickly became an exercise is frustration - a great idea, but not a great implementation (FYI, I was trying to do this using my Asus "Dark Knight" router with a Western Digital "MyBook" 3TB drive.)

So, the last time I "lost" my network access to my entertainment files, I decided to finally take the plunge and buy an ACTUAL "network storage" system. I'd been shopping for some time, and had experimented with the "online demo" for Synology's "Diskstation Manager" software... and had read pretty much ALL the reviews for this device.

Regarding Boot Issues for select DS1512+, DS1812+ and DS212J
by Admin » Fri Apr 13, 2012 10:45 am

Taipei, Taiwan--April 13, 2012--Synology® has confirmed a known system issue caused by flawed flash memory chips. This issue can occur when users reboot the DiskStation; the unit will not restart and the blue LED light will blink continuously. This issue does not affect data stored on the DiskStation and will not result in data loss.

The affected products include DS1512+ and DS1812+ worldwide, and DS212j for Asia shipments only. The best estimated quantity is 480, 120 and 700 units respectively and most of them have been returned or are on the way to Synology.

Users who encounter this issue should contact Synology at blueLED@synology.com and our technical support team will provide them with the best solution. If users did not encounter the above issue but still have any concerns, or users want to make sure the product that they are going to purchase is not affected, they are welcome to send serial numbers to blueLED@synology.com for verification.

For resellers who want to check whether their on-hand stocks are affected, they are also welcome to send serial numbers to blueLED@synology.com for verification. Synology strives to ensure all customers can receive our rapid and full support.

"We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this issue, and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Synology has taken immediate action to correct the situation, and we remain one hundred percent dedicated to serving our customers," said Vic Hsu, CEO of Synology Inc. "Rest assured we have already identified and fixed this problem. No future shipments will be affected."
