Heat added Frank...night again X)



Night Maccy. I`m off to bed soon X)
They've also released the DS116 new single bay drive with some updated hardware which i want to get hold of - I've got the DS115 but it'll be nice to upgrade.

Just need the money first!

I'm that tired, but the lure of a good film is just too much X)

Asus and Synology aren't really in the same league. Synology are the 'Apple' of NAS drives. Asus would be about at least 3rd or 4th.

"Usually dispatched within 2 - 4 weeks", so plenty time for them to cancel :-(

i have virgin broadband, will it allow remote access to this device? dont think its as powerful as the ts-253a

good price for the drives though

Do Amazon take payment on dispatch?

You can stream most media to a chromecast, Xbox etc. Remote access should work fine.

Yes they do

Cheers.

What's the likelihood of them cancelling a pricing error like this?

Very likely to be honest. Just be prepared to wait a while knowing that Amazon could cancel your order at anytime! good luck though if you do decide to purchase (_;)

Yes like my DS214play
It has QuickConnect for DDNS or you can setup port forwarding and virgin usually provide static IPs
Talked to CS, apparently they don't take payment until dispatch, so I've ordered one just on the off chance it's honoured

Speaking of which, anyone want to buy a Synology DS215j with 2 x 3TB WD Reds? (_;)
Edited by: "Joshimitsu91" 1st Jun 2016
4TB is now that price - 8TB is £539.95 - misprice deal over I think plus probably a few cancellations !
Could I use this As a plex server?
Thanks, ordered too. Fingers crossed!

Could I use this As a plex server?


Yes, I use my DS213 as a Plex server
tewks

Yes, I use my DS213 as a Plex server



No problems transcoding?
Reviews not great. But are generally known to be good drives (like the Ds216j)
Ordered. Hopefully honoured but not holding out
Am I looking at this the right way?
Synology DS216+ 8 TB
comes with 2 x 4TB drives?
DS216+/8TB-RED is the product code and according to other sites it is 2 x 4tb
price is still the same.

Edited by: "5nowman" 1st Jun 2016
BUT... the 2TB and 4TB are still £321
Sounds likely to get cancelled. Great NASes though - pricey, but you get what you pay for and don't end up buying a new one in a couple of years. I have a 6 year old DS210j and it's still going strong and still getting software updates! With all the updates it's had it's a much different NAS now to what it was 6 years ago.

No problems transcoding?


No problems at all, Plex encodes through the software as opposed to the HW so it works perfectly.

A 2 bay enclosure with 8TB included storage uses 2x4TB disks.

You can run them in RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD.
Absolute steal at this price, worth a punt.
Flubit came back at £314.28
Price changed now
Price now £539.95. Looks like it's been spotted & corrected.

No idea about what you have said, it's not accurate.

I expect this will be fine for one HD stream or two at a stretch. But not sure there is a Nas on the market that could handle more streams than that at the same time (hardware limitation)...

Anyway one stream is possibly all that is required for the majority of users, who knows.
