I have a DS416.

It was fairly easy to set up, and it does seem to work OK as second level backup.

It has a lot of features that I don’t need or use.  I don’t know how it compares with other NAS systems but it’s a lot slower than local storage and seems a bit slower than other Samba connections with computers. I ran into the interesting problem that storage partitions max out at 16T.  I have no major complaints, though my next similar system is likely going to be just throwing a bunch of disks inside a Linux box.  

I’ve had it for a few years, and haven’t really had any serious trouble.  It doesn’t make be jump up with joy, but I have no major complaints.
