    Synology stuffed me with an 8 bay NAS that had a known design fault causing predictable failure after three or so years. It wasn’t all their fault as many other Intel based devices had this same issue but Synology offered no apologies or discounted upgrade/service/parts to fix the units. In fact they were very dismissive about the whole problem. Suggested buy a new one

    It was an expensive product and a personal purchase. Sorry Synology - love the specs but hate the way you handled this issue. Never again. (edited)

    If you are referring to the Intel Atom bug, it may be fixable. Please let me know if need a help on that (I have fixed few RS815+ models)

    I have this with 4x12tb WD reds and 1TB ssd cache. It has been excellent so far, apart from a bit of a scare with the nvme cache going a bit dodgy but i'm putting that down to me not using 'supported' drives. However I'm convinved that's a racket - vendors paying Synology to be mentioned on their website..

    Running a Plex server and a few Docker containers, while technically underpowered compared with a server you can build yourself it's the software and ecosystem that sets it apart. Running Synology's DDNS, monitoring and reporting tools, good warranty etc.

    I'm not a complete noob but I do appreciate the hand-holding Synology provides when configuring stuff, and their documentation is pretty extensive.

    From a retailer with warranty?

    Good price. Never understood why the skimped and didn't put 2.5GigE in these. Not much point slapping a load of NVMe cache in when you're limited to GigE (I believe you can link aggregate but that's a poor solution).

    Do remember you get a lot bundled software with these. A lot of the software is business oriented but I have made extensive use of the photos and surveillance station software and found it very good.

    The photos software is especially good if you have a huge archive of unindexed photos as it can divide them up by people into albums.

    Had mine 3 years, no issues. (edited)

    Same here, I use surveillance station and its great. Managed to get some cheap licences off ebay too

    They might release a new single bay one before I’m 90 ..

    I plugged a regular external hard drive into the USB port of my router. Does the job and plenty fast enough to stream a full HD movie to one device. This will do me until I can justify a multi-bay NAS.

    Fancy something like this for backing up & streaming the dvd collection but too rich for my blood. Anyone recommend something I could throw a 2.5" hdd in on the cheapness?

    I have been having really bad experience with QNAP. Is this any better?

    I haven't had a QNAP, but I'm on my 2nd ever Synology. Never had an issue on either one of mine.

    £402 last year on Amazon when I got it. It skinted me but I'm glad I did it.

    For an average home user who just wants plex and backing photo’s up this is probably overkill - better of with the 2 bay play version and saving the cash and spending it on fo 16-18TB WD red plus.

    i have the older 5 bay version of this (1520) and its been faultless - but it is my third synology NAS. Link aggregating on GBe is plenty fast enough… and i even still have my 14+ year old WD red from my first NAS still going strong in it - which has been running for over 125k hours!!

    For the average home user, a single bay drive will be completely fine.

    The new model is due out this year (based on previous release schedules), so it might be worth waiting for that.

    As a recent purchaser of one of these I can confirm they are a quality piece of kit.

    Got this and 50tb. Even runs Plex movies at 2k and 4k as long as they're in h264 format. Pretty impressed for a low performance NAS not intended as a HTPC. The software is really where value is added. Easy and lots of customisation. Also very impressed with transfer speeds over Ethernet.

    Thanks to this being up here I was doing a quick search for what deals are on the market for a NAS as my heavily modded N40L has been going strong for well over a decade...

    Well, low and behold the Jonsbo N1 is available on overclockers.

    overclockers.co.uk/jon…...
    I had no plans to upgrade from my heavily modded HP N40L, but now looks like I have an excuse and already ordered one...

    Glad it's not just me still rocking the N40L!
    I'm using the onboard sas, and an external HBA with sas with all sorts of cable mess

    I have a 2-bay DS214SE which is utterly brilliant, though a bit slow for some of the media server functions and photo sharing so looking to update. This one may be a step too far. I couldn't find any deals on a DS220+ yet but the disks in mine can be a bit noisy and wondering if swapping out for SSDs would give me the performance and noise reduction?.
    Avatar
    I put a couple of SSDs in a DS212 for noise reasons (also replaced the fan with a Noctua). It is now very quiet indeed! However, the weak single core CPUs in these older ones (yours and mine) means there isn't much to be gained in performance.

    I'm considering the DS220j as an upgrade - even that would be massively better I think. Only reason I haven't yet is wondering what the DS223j will be like, since I could wait. I expect it will still be a quad core, but a bump in RAM would be nice.

    I've a 9-year old Synology DS214se still chugging away behind the TV.

    I keep waiting for it to die so that I can upgrade, but it refuses to stop working.

    Apart from running as a media server and files management, is there anything else which these are useful for?
    Avatar
    You could run your own e-mail sever or website if you wanted. I use my for CCTV, Media streaming, TV NVR.
    Until a year ago, I used an old PC as a media server and thought the idea of spending £100's on a NAS ridiculous. Since buying a cheap Synology DS1618+ I've been fully converted and couldn't live without it now.

    This is an absolutely amazing piece of kit and I wound buy it again. However at the same time it feels like I would not want to spend this sort of money at the end of 2022 for 920+. I bought one about a year and a half ago only because I was able to sell 918+ for a very good price. Even at that time I was thinking the successor to 920+ is just around a corner and was thinking long and hard if I should get the 920 or wait for 922+ (or whatever they are going to call it). I am glad I ended up getting 920+ at that time. At this point in time I would probably just wait for the successor to 920+ unless I was able to get a big discount.
