    Pretty pretty pretty good!

  •  

    Great price! Just bought one last week

  •  

    Best value HDDs to go with that? 2 x 8TB? (CMR efrx)
    Close to $23.5/TB benchmark (external shucked)?

      Regarding external shucked drives I looked into this recently and note that it could be hit and miss as to what drive you get in external casing (and some you have to mask up some pins to use them in a NAS). If you know what drive you are getting it is definitely a cheaper way to go.

    This is actually excellent!

    Intel chip with QuickSync… would do pretty OK as a Plex server as well. :)

    Won't be buying one though, kinda a downgrade from 1918+.

      what are the Cons vs Pros?

        Not sure there's enough context in your question for me to provide an accurate response, sorry mate. Pros and cons of what, specifically?

          Pros & cons of "1918+" vs DS920+. What is missing in DS920+?

          •  

            @taki: 1819+ is an 8-bay NAS. In my use case, going from 8 bays to 4 bays is a downgrade.

            The HW inside the DS920+, however, is better than the 1819+.

    •  

      Yeah I reckon I'll wait for the next version, which will hopefully drop next year. A NAS is a nice to have, not a need to have for me right now.

      •  

        Next year might not come :(
        Buy on credit & you might ner have to pay off the loan - if the Cols Warr II continues ;)

    My wallet's telling me no.

    But my body..

  •  

    Great price, would jump on it but my old DS215j seems to still be trucking along fine ..

  •  

    Been thinking of using Synology as my Google Photos replacement, but then just last week decided to go in on the Google One family membership.

    Hot damn

    Pass… what's the point of having m.2? Accelerate the spinning hard disk? Run two arrays, one with spinning disks and other of m.2 drives? No mater now you configure this machine the two 1gb ethernet bottlenecks any speed generated. Only possible way to unbottleneck this is using usb 3.0 to ethernet adapters if you can get it to work, if the adapters are supported, might be able to get a few 2.5gbe or 5gbe connections going then have to aggregate them to un bottleneck the NAS, aggregating them means a 10gbe managed switch which is big money… solution? Buy a switch which has a pci expansion port or native 10gbe this one has neither.

      Synology Diskstation Manager (DSM) allows you to have read and write cache M.2 drives. One big benefit from read caching especially is lowering disk wear as commonly accessed files can be cached and not require the disks to spin up to access it. Wouldn't use a cheap SSD for that though, only an enterprise drive or one specifically designed for caching.

        Drive caching to save wear and tear on the spinning disks? Wd reds have a mean time before failure of 1,000,000 hours there are 8766 hours in a year.. hence they should last 114 years. MTBF is based on 40 degrees operating environment, doesn't say whether percentage of that time they are working or idle.. regardless thats a bloody long time. This unit has usb 3.0 you could technically use a 5 gbe ethernet adapter, if synology support it and support link agreegation maybe can run 2 5gbe ethernet connectors. 4 hdd wd red 5400 rpm have data rate of 180 mb per second.. in raid 5 would expect 500 to 550.. which to max out needs 5gbe minimum. The two 1 gbe will bottle neck these drives big time
