DSM 6.0 is now release candidate:

Shout out to Dave for putting it on the front page, but I figured I'd link it here too.  I just bought a DS216se for my parents;  perfect inexpensive choice.  With two 2TB drives in SHR RAID 1, I'm splitting it in half; one folder for PC backups and one for Time Machine backups.

Nice. that is the perfect use case for the low end models. I love my Synology NAS.

We use them at work for small client onsite backups, but we usually use the 21Xsj model due to the faster processor and double the RAM.

 

They're perfect for 1-2 server onsite backup scenarios with a couple of 3-4TB drives in RAID 1.  You can corporate brand the login logo, and you can turn on SNMP monitoring and get things like temperature alerts from them.  Plus, I've never seen a NAS line where OS support goes back so far; Synology recently went 216 series, but you can still upgrade a 210sj to DSM 5.2, and those are going back 4-5 years old.  Try doing that with maybe anyone else other than QNAP, and you probably can't.

 

For medium clients, we've used 4-bay or rackmount models.  Those work well too, for our intended purpose.  As long as you don't go overboard and try to use one as a poor-man's SAN in a corporate network, they're great.
