Me too.
After so much research and decided to go with Synology DS1512+, then happen to see this issue.
Could anyone advise is this a software bugs or hardware bugs?

Taipei, Taiwan—April 13, 2012—Synology® has confirmed a known system issue caused by flawed flash memory chips.

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.
