Hoping the DS218+ gets discounted
Damn, just posted this. Didn't see yours. Ordered one anyway but would also prefer a + or maybe even a play if well cheap.
Fyi, if you're looking for drives to put in here, Amazon have the 14tb drive currently at £226. Deal can't be posted here as it's a third party seller.
There is also a dodgy seller selling the + with 6TB for £231!

I've taken a gamble on it, decent seller rating for the 14tb one, if they turn out dodgy can always send them back. Too good an offer not to try.

This is a great NAS! Bought it earlier this year and it has completely changed the way I store music, movies etc. One tip though, I found Emby to be much better than Plex. Plex would be very slow or just not work at all, even on my home network, while Emby is super quick!

Yep, very easy and similar to Plex. Emby also has lots of apps just like Plex. The interface isn't quite as pretty, but the funstionality was miles ahead for me.

Already tried the French company, they just keep changing their name. They say it's posted but it never arrives and they don't respond to any messages. Amazon had to refund after a month.
