Doh! Bought the 16gb for £599 last month, but it only arrived on Friday... still a good price I guess
32TB is £830:

amazon.co.uk/WD-…61B

I guess it's £50 more per drive to add another 2TB per drive.

Absolutely cracking deal - just grabbed one of these myself. Currently using a Synology DS916+ but only have 6Tb of hard drive in it. Same processor, so hoping that Plex Hardware Transcoding will still run the same.

Hmm I'd always go direct play myself if you can, neither one should need to do transcoding if playing in your local network.

Oh, agreed. Most of my devices should be able to direct play pretty much everything on the server. Just thinking about those (admittedly rare) instances where direct play isn't possible.
Is the main thing with these sharing around the house? I see you can get 10TB hdd for £146, so 20TB for under £300, I'm just trying to work out if this sort of thing has £300 of advantages. Maybe in a backup scenario?

You can set it up in RAID so you're less likely to lose data due to hdd failure, plus you can back up and access remotely. I took a photo earlier for example and it's backed up across multiple discs at home 250 miles away, so if i lose or break my phone i know my photos and anything else I've chosen to back up are safe. Later i might watch one of my films stored on the drive from my hotel room... so more than just a backup device.
I've got a Synology NAS and a WD USB drive.

Apart from the security of having a backup "somewhere", I find the real life usability of these things to be a PITA.
I really don't need something to impose its own GUI or custom file system, I'd much prefer to just to manage my own files.

For multiple PC's (and TVs) needing centralised storage then they are ideal.
And probably the small size is more convenient than a tower case full of 4Gb drives, not sure I'd pay an extra £200 for that though.

Yes the NAS can run apps, services etc in the background.

I used to have all of my media on my PC, then I could watch it on the TV via a client like Plex. The downside was that my PC needed to be on all the time in order to watch stuff on the TV, and my PC had loads of hard drives in it.

The NAS separates the roles out, it is always on, reasonably low power, and contains my hard drives. The PC is now quieter and can be turned off when I don't need to use it.

You pay a cost, but if that is a valuable scenario for you, then it's worth considering.

Saying all of this I am a big fan of the Synology NAS devices as they make most things reasonably easy to do. Especially the + series which can do Docker containers, means I can spin up stuff quickly.
From what I could find it’s a a*** to get nzb client, sonarr etc on it? Ie a hour or two efforts vs plug and play that I want now in my life?

I found Plex but that seemed about it without some scripting and then I may as well go freenas
Edited by: "jamhops" 15th Jul
Amazing deal. Does these support Docker? and also can i directly copy stuff to these via USB
Thanks

Get something that supports docker, because you can get dockers for sab, sonarr, radarr etc. Source: I am using dockers for all of the above.

Reasonably simple to get up and running with the dockers, but not plug and play, needs a bit of know-how, or ability to Google stuff if stuck.
Great deal but all sold out now.

To be honest last time I worked it out the cost of running my pc in its lowest power mode meant the pay off time for a NAS was ridiculous. It really depends on how much you.value having it separate and having something to set up a raid system that's not part of your PC that might introduce downtime to it.
I find it hard to justify the NAS prices. I only have HD content so don't need masses of storage. My desktop was £10 from work. It is ok as a Plex server. Only has 12tb of drives in it but that is ok for my needs. I do have an old Synology NAS that is largely used for backup of really important stuff like photos as well as using CloudBerry and Backblaze B2. When I need more space I will do out the 2x6tb drives for 10tb drives but no rush on that, just delete the old guff to free up some space from time to time.

Back available again 94% just got one


Well done! I saw the same but couldn't add to the basket!

This looks like a great price for the 4 x 6TB NAS Red HDs alone
Edited by: "MetalGearAl" 15th Jul
Can't add it to my basket. Is it expired
I love the idea of having my own cloud. But I have no idea what I would do with it. Great pub conversation starter though...
Received mine and setup.. now i am thinking i should have gone with other brand, yes the OS is very limited and cant do much backup apps was ok not have many features like creating folders and drag and drop files to copy to NAS didnt work..
i still feel for 640 i still get the 4x6TB Reds they it self cost 120£ each i believe so thinking keep ing this and buy Synology ds918+

Received mine and put the 4 10Tbs in it I got from the prime 20tb mybook deals, and put the 4 6tbs into my DS1815+. Will be using it as the main media server now and the Synology for backup / general use.

Yes its very limited in the OS, but you can still create folders etc via the OS, just use the web file viewer. If you just use it as any other NAS via other devices it works just the same - i.e you can drag and drop files easily, i.e on a PC just go to file explorer, same on a android device via file manager etc
