Where Are All The NAS Deals Gone?

I’m looking for a Synology 5 Bay NAS seems like all deals have dried up. Are they no longer a popular item?

    Probably lost to chia farming like GPUs etc.

      Disks, sure. But not the NAS devices.

      I get that cloud storage is incredibly useful but having local storage for streaming media has a place doesn’t it?

    Well. There is an inverse relationship between the demand of an item vs the number of deals seen for that item on Ozbargain. Generally speaking anyway: GPU's and gaming consoles are about the only exception. And a year ago it was hand sanitiser and face masks were the exception.

    If there's a global increased demand for hard drive storage and solid state drives you'd also expect there to be less attractive deals since there's no incentive for the merchant to decrease pricing. Their sales volume is already high thanks to shortages and miners buying up all the stock.

    Chip shortages might have played a role in their ability to create excess supply for deals to happen.

    Anyone looked at Microservers? Any recommendations
