I'm Michelle, Aussie living in the Philippines.
I have DS416. I was introduced to Synology by a fellow user. Love it. Just wish I could set it up to the internet
after moving countries....

Hi. I'm Karen. I've just bought my first Synology, a DS216j.

It's great to have the server functionality at home but I'm finding the Synology isn't straightforward to set up -- packages settings are all over the place, and the documentation is less than basic. I worked in IT a few years ago, so I don't have the latest, most up-to-date skills, but I do know enough to own one of these. And it should be easier than this.

Hoping this forum will be able to help on a few things.

my name is Carsten - and I'm in fact already two years on the forum, but seems I never untroduced myself...

I have a DS416play.

I ran an Icybox for years before switching to Synology. The Icybox did well for a long time, but usability and performance were low. Always looked for something more usable, especially for the non-tech's of the family. Several people recommended Synology, and so I decided to go for the DSP416play (which is considerably more expensive than the Icybox was, and my wife is still not convinced that it's worth the money ;-)

Mainly I use the station to store the families' videos, photos and music collections. This works quite fine, but it also seems that most of the time I am the sole user of the server. Didn't have a lot of time to look after my synology, so was pretty quiet here. Took the time over Eastern to clean up some things on my Synology - and I guess you will see some message from me in the other boards.

Best wishes
