Group Buy

So, anyone interested in the group buy mentioned earlier? I saw at least three posters interested. Five would be better, but three is probably enough.

Who is organizing?

Hi, i just bought a new gigabit router, TP-Link N900. Now i can't find my Synology NAS on in Windows shared devices. But i can still access via the IP.

Here's my setup:

PC > TP-Link N900 gigabit router > TP-Link Gigabit Switch > Synology DS213J

Any idea what i have to do?

Hi, my DS1813+ is working file.

The only problem i get is when copying a folder with several files from NAS to PC/MAC. It is really really slow.

If it was a single file of any size, no problem.

Anyone has a solution for this?
It could also be caused by Windows Explorer. Windows Explorer likes to cache everything (or try to) in memory. Google "teracopy" if you're using Windows 7.

Also you can look at the resource monitor and watch the performance.

Like I've mentioned in previous posts in this thread, there are a whole multitude of things to look out for to maximize speed.

Google "WINS microsoft" to get an idea of how that works, likely this is the problem.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

I tried connecting my PC directly to the NAS, the speeds are still capped at 10mb/s. Any idea why?

I'm using a brand new DS213J with 2x3TB WD green. Everything new. Even bought new TP-Link gigabit switch and all cat5e cables.

I'm really stumped. Spent the whole afternoon googling for solutions..

Anyone can help?
Check your PC's network card speed. Usually, the default settings is set to "automatic/negotiate".

Your computer's NIC may be automatically set to "100mbps"

BTW, I switched to prosumer grade switches quite a while back.
I'm using netgear gs724t and have a hp 1910 yet to be deployed.

After deployment, I'll have a spare gs108t switch for sale.
http://www.netgear.com/business/prod...es/gs108t.aspx

I used to use a dlink switch and faced all the same problems. Very very slow transfer rate after the first few files.

You generally get what you pay for. Consumer grade switches go for less than 100SGD are not designed for sustained transfer rates.

during IT Exhibits only.

1. IT Show 2014
2. PC Show 2014
3. Comex 2013
4. Sitex 2013
*Either of it should be good.


if you gonna buy now at SLS/FUNAN MemoryWorld or StorageStudio.. you will definitely be a carrot.

don't do it, just endure. But if they are able to match the prices given at IT Exhibits, don't hesitate. - You can call them to check on it.

compare the prices at Ace Peripherals Asustor Synology NAS, Seagate HardDisk WD 2.5 3.5 2TB 3TB 4TB HDD PC SHOW 2013 Price List Brochure Flyer Image
Hi Gribber,

My friend went to memory world at Funan to purchase the DS213 and the price is pretty cheap and reasonable as compare the price that my friend checked with Ace. what is important, is the service that they provide us who guide us step and step without any hurry.

Good for you then.

"Cheap" is just a vague word. What is the price you paid for is more impt.

Honestly, synology UI is super easy to configure. But for people who rather being served than to learn...

No point talking to me about service when is your attitude to learn new things by yourself is disgusting.

Letting MW earn easy $ is another thing, the thing that disgusted me is because they used to charge super price for their products just because they are the only sole distributor.

No hard feelings.

In terms of customer service, if bugis78 is satisfied then I think MW has done its job. Some of the staff can seem stuck-up from the few times I went over to enquire, but if you do buy I think their attitude will improve.

Their price is usually higher than SLS/show prices. They also carry some hard-to-find stuff, like 4GB 1066 laptop RAM sticks in the early days. I paid a fortune for those as an early adopter. But no one else sold them.

As for Synology UI, I believe in learning from others as well as from resources. For e.g., did you know you can drag-and-drop torrent files right into Download Manager? You don't even have to bring up the + button window. I don't think that's documented anywhere. So there's value in people's experiences. (Isn't that what the forum is for?)

Point being, MW may have improved pricing and customer service, never know. bugis78 enjoyed his customer service, why judge him for learning from the salespeople instead of 'by himself'?

Just bought a Prolink PRO850VU UPS from Fuwell for $79.
Connected it to my DS412+ and tested it (by switching off the power it was connected to).
Seems to be a more affordable alternative to APC (APC 650VA ~$140).
This one has only 2 ports though, but it's enough for me cos only the NAS is connected.
