Using DS-106 firmware on a DS-101g+

Unread post by JacobJorgensen » Sun Dec 03, 2006 12:47 am

Is it possible to use the DS-106(e) firmware on a DS-101g+?

Why is the firmware versions for the DS-101g+ product always behind the other products (DS-101j is older but still better supported)?
I think that a lot of users of 101g+ are not satisfied with this issue.

Regards

I think so - 101g+ is usually the last one in firmware release schedule.

Is 101j using same kind of CPU as 106??

So it makes 101j and 106 belong to the same group while
101 and 101G+ are in another group?

I'm starting to wish I'd waited for the DS-106 instead of getting the DS-101g+ when I did...

Can a moderator please reply... Specifically will the new Photo Station II firmware be provided for the DS-101g+ and when?

All in all, I've been very impressed with the DS-101g+ -- I just hope Synology will continue to support it as they do their other previous products.

Thanks!

Mel-

Please do not double post, and yes, the features from 426 from the DS106 series is planned to be integrated into the DS101g+. I cannot specifically say when it will be ready, just that it's planned for late Q1 or Q2 of 2007.

Here another complaint from a 101G+ user.
I recommended a lot of my customers to buy the 101G+ because of the firmware upgrades/enhancements. And the result: all the new models get the upgrade and the "old" models like 101G+ have to have another 6 months.

I recommend my customers not to buy a Synology anymore.
This really sucks.

You're right, cupra4.

I have an 101G+ and considered buying 106.

But I am afraid a newer model may be released soon. (say 107)
after the new model 107 is realeased, only 107 get the latest update...

and the 106 will have to wait 6 month and 101G+ is hopeless.
Happy 106 owners may become unhappy when 107 is released.

productive suggestion: :D

Please try to make release date across different model closer. (max 3 months in my opionion)

Clearly states how long can old products get quick firmware updates.
(e.g. 4 years?)
( to manage customer's expectation)

Happy 106 owners may become unhappy when 107 is released.
We've taken that into consideration and we are working on a method where all series will be released at the same time, or close to each other.
