  • For those that have Plex servers. Is integrating one of these with an existing server as simple as directing the library to this? For reference, I have a Node304/PC set up with all the bays full now, and need more space.

      Yes that's mostly all it takes.
      It used to be you'd install the standard Plex image distributed by Synology, but they are no longer doing that.

      You now have to separately download the image (from Plex's website) and then go through giving permissions for Plex to access the folders you want. But that's about all the work you'll have to do.

      • Yeah. I've got plex fully running already, jsut need more drive space. If it is as simple as pointing it to the drive, jsut like it was when adding a new drive to my current case. Then that's a piece of cake.

        • See other post below - all you need to do is add drives to your current case.

    • it's seriously very easy and many updates, about once a month or so

    • If you already have a PC running Plex then just connect a bunch more drive bays to your Node 304 case - https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/hard-drives-&-ssds/docks... - with something like that.

      You definitely don't need a NAS like this to add storage to an existing system.

  • I used to like Synology before they released those models that had a known bad CPU in it and kept replacing it with ones that also had the same bad CPU until you were out of the warranty period then they told you to buy a new one.

    • What models were they?

      • +1

        Mine was an 1815+ but I believe it affected a few of the models ending in 15+

    Waiting for better deals, around $700 or under.

  • 2022 models are coming. I am strong. I can resist.

    • Any idea when? And how much more expensive it could be? I'm also interested if it's just around the corner and don't cost a lot more.

      • Anyone's guess is as good as mine. Until Synology make an announcement the only information you'll find are predictions. So far there have been two-yearly refreshes, so even a 2022 models are a prediction, even if it is a likely one

  • I want QNAP TVS-472XT-PT but I don't think I will ever get it in a decent deal.

    • Syno is better than qnap.
      Few qnap got hacked

    " Two built-in M.2 SSD slots and Synology SSD Cache technology allow you to boost system I/O and application performance."

    As a network SAN, you're capped out at gigabit ethernet which is equivalent to 100 meg/second, or 1/5th the speed of a sata ssd, or about 1/70th the speed of a modern nvme M.2 SSD. Okay, it has 2x1gb ports, and you can team them if you know how. But still.

    USB 3.2 Gen 1 may do better, but caps out at 5Gbps, but on a cable about a metre long.

    Either way you're generally absolutely crippling a M.2 nvme SSD by putting it in this. Not boosting performance at all.

    • +1

      Depends what you’re doing. If you’re dealing with lots of little files or multiple users caching with an ssd may provide a benefit.

    • tempted to add 2 x 1Tb NVME drives to mine until I read somewhere that is can cause irreversible damage to the NAS storage if the SSD fail.

      • +1

        Yeah I’ve had an Intel SSD fall because these NAS thrash the SSD. I told Intel when claiming warranty what it was used for and they said they don’t cover that one I had for NAS usage. I’ve got a new crucial SSD be marked as “expired” after having it installed for less than a year due to the sheer amount of writes. I’d suggest you consider the number of writes/lifetime of the SSD you buy when installing.

        • thanks for the insights. Didn't know some not covered for NAS applications.

    • Exactly.

      For $800 you could build your own NAS with NVMe slots and integrated 2.5GBe. That'll saturate most really good HDDs at 250mb/s or so.

      Another $50 would get you a dual 10GBe SFP+ card for really moving data around!

  • Wow the retail price from this seller is $979.00, I don't think I've seen it this expensive? Fortunately the code exists!
