  PROS
designThe design is a hard thing to judge as this is a rackmount NAS, however, it is a very sleek and well maintained (internally) device. Excellent internal cooling and fantastic ventilation.
featuresUnless you want to deal with 4K media, this NAS can do everything you will need for business. Thanks to a combination of solid hardware and great 1st party apps from Synology such as Chat, Calendar, Drive, Office, Moments and more. As well as great CRM and CMS systems.
performanceThe performance of this rackmount NAS is great for your business file server use, large-scale surveillance, VM hosting is pretty good. Plus the software is updated regularly and all apps are frequently improved. Plus you can use up to 4 LAN ports to effectively quadruple your read/write speeds with link aggregation
valueIt is a little steep in price when compared with a QNAP Rackmount of the same hardware, but the software on this device more than makes up for this shortfall. I recommend this device just based on the enterprise use of DSM 6.2

  CONS
designOnly a single PCIe expansion slot, which is a shame as you will need to choose between 10Gbe connectivity or SSD caching with upgrading with the M2D17 and M2D18 - bit of a shame.
featuresThe Intel Atom 3000 based CPU will seem a little underpowered for some.
performanceA lack of 10Gbe as standard and that CPU mean that you may hit an internal bottleneck when it comes to editing big files on the NAS.
valueIf you are using 3rd party software and need the NAS for it's hardware, then this may be a little too expensive for your requirements.
