Cold. Build a better NAS for half the price with double the specs



And double the electricity draw (at least).

You may as well say you're not buying a house because you can buy a scrap of land and build one from scratch for half the price...

Good spot
is this significantly better than theDS5xx and DS9xx? I was after a 4-bay one

Assume I can stick 2 discs in and easily expand it later? Was thinking of 2* 8TB Reds to start with to keep cost down without filling the slots

Yes you can run it on anything from a single drive to all 5 (IIRC they do an expansion drive too).

Spec wise it's better than the DS5 but IIRC the DS9 is better or on par. There's lots of comparisons outside on NAS and home server websites.

The 4-bay systems have gone up[ in price lately... They used to be around £420 for DS418play now they are £499 with a £50 discount.... crazy .. also waiting for a 4 bay one

EDIT: It looks like Amazon is price manipulating again. Box.com has them for the same price.

No drives, seems expensive.

What do you mean re Amazon....it is £646 on there and the OP was from Box?
I think this one has 2x m.2 slots on the underside
Better to build your own. unRAID or something similar. Much more flexible, cheaper and with better expansion possibilities.
I think the QNAP equivalent has 2gb network ports and pcix slot for 10gb nic or anything else, oh and hdmi out. Basically better spec, but uglier.

Good price. Im saving for the 1618+ though.

Yep, for sure! I've done similar with my DS916+ using Synology's Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR). Had 2x 4TB Seagates in there and then when the other two arrived I whacked them in and a couple of days later they were checked and put into the same storage pool as the initial two. I imagine 8TB will prob take longer? Mine was checking each one at once rather than simultaneously.

just google "SYNOLOGY DS1019+" Box.com shows up 609 for me as well.

I wouldn't bother with the caching - there are serious issues with a R/W cache and this leaves a read only one basically useless.

A quick browse on Reddit etc will flag up the info.
Got a 414 still going strong after 6 years. Doesn't miss a beat, amazing kit.

what are you about ? you do know what this is right ? there are deals on multiple drives accross various websites - try it

The DS1019+ will transcode ONE 4k file no bother in hardware, but that's the limit.

I thought the same when looking at DS218’s but the ones I looked at on Amazon were from Box.co.uk

The 2020 models are out soon. Ds920+ is 4 Bay with expansion slot and a faster processor

Yep, brilliant machines. I've a 12-bay 2411+ that I've had for years and its never skipped a beat.
Would've expected 10gbe at this price, or at least the option of adding one. 1gb ethernet will be a bottleneck on devices like this.

agreed. Upgraded my server to 10gb as 1gb was far too slow and bottlenecking.

How's QNAP for Google Drive / DropBox etc sync?

This is one is bit too expensive for just an enclosure, to be honest. At least for me.

I recently got the DS918+ and I find it plays most 4K HDR movies perfectly fine.

I also find it struggles to play movies with PSG subtitles enabled. So make sure if needed, your movies have SRT. It also struggles on random 4K movies, I haven't figured out why yet, but apparently its because its transcoding.

I've been told try the Plex Pass and then enable hardware encoding and that should make it play smoothly. So now I'm waiting around on here to find a Plex Pass trail code or something.

In short, yes it plays 4K movies.

What's the power draw on these? You can get low wattage PSUs you know.

Under 40 watts when all bays are occupied and in use, under 15 watts when discs hibernated.

You'll find the Plex Pass will allow you to transcode one 4k movie (at a time) in hardware on this NAS (and your 918+).

not really the point - a £600 nas box should at least have the option of 10gbe.
Is it me or has the price gone up to £627.99?

In which case, I'd rather buy from amazon for the guaranteed service!
