I think it's fine not to use RAID at home. RAID is for disk redundancy rather than data redundancy, for people that need to have high uptime. If you can wait a day or two to be back up and running then it's fine not to use RAID. Even with RAID you should still have a local and cloud backup (Synology have one which is quite good value compared to Back blaze).

bimthedandyandy

Delivery now 1 to 3 months. Good price though.

richard.guilliatt

Thank you. The bank does a sigh of reliefe

Your HP microserver is probably using windows or ??? the synology uses a form of linux and ext4 file system. So how your existing drives and data are setup (JBOD raid(x) ) will determine how you get your stuff onto a new system. Synology normally treats all the drives as one big pool (RAID! or raid5). windows can read ext4 drives with some software , but reading NTFS drives on syno is more problematic.external . Stick with what you know, and just spend the money on Large drives 4 x8Tb should see you thru.. These are good (afaik) but expensive ....

HankHandsome

I'm one of these people who doesn't believe that all of my hardware is going to simultaneously fail at the same time, so i'm quite happy to have a single bay drive. I've got everything backed up externally anyway. Ideally i'd like to get a separate external hard drive for backups, but being on a low income it's not something that's going to happen any time soon.

Agree with previous comments. Click on 3x6Tb drives and same list appears with top one still £209. Scroll to end of list and you find that model at £774

GwanGy

I have seen similar (priced deals). and yes it's almost certainly WITHOUT HDD , so dont get your hopes up. 3 bay is a bit odd as it limits your options for expansion and usage eg raid5 2+1, 3xjbod or 3 single disks rather than RAID10 on a four drive unit :shrug: Great if it comes thru WITH HDD

tek-monkey

I think you got unlucky, I have a TS-659 that has been on 24/7 for about 8 years now and other than 2 HDD failures it's been bulletproof - as have the ones at work. I assume you got it replaced/refunded?

Seagate 3 TB IronWolf 3.5 Inch 5900 RPM Internal Hard Drive for 1-8 Bay NAS Systems @ Amazon
276°
Found 30th NovFound 30th Nov
Previously a hot deal @ £83 the other month.
PurplePerson

Couldn't agree more. It's a little fast, yes. I'd prefer it was 4400 RPM at least so it could be even cooler and quieter and power frugal.

sneakybifta

Hot, but make sure you realise this is for always-on sytems. For other use cases, you can get a 4TB Seagate from Amazon for £4 more. Had the 4TB delivered today, it's for an unRAID/Plex media server, so the drives will be spun down most of the time. And it's very very easy to replace the drive with any other drive without interuption of service or loss of data if it ever starts to die. If I was buying it for almost any other server application, like a CCTV NAS that's running and writing data all the time, I'd get the IronWolf from this deal. 3 year warranty on the Ironwolf range, and you only get two years on the 4TB drive linked.

the__cat

I was messing (highfive)

jasee

Of course, but it's not particularly fast and not a very good size. Most people (i'm guessing) don't have 8 bay computers or NASes because they're usually very expensive or computers don't have the space. So at least 4GB size is much better to take better advantage of the number of bays. Otherwise you might as well get a 4 bay NAS or pc (a lot cheaper) and put in 4x6GB

the__cat

So can I not put this in a 9-bay NAS then?

This one has a USB port for external drives too, but it's only USB 2.0

stearn

I've got two of the 2-bay 6TB variety, bought within months of each other, and there is a different, clunky, interface to each. That's not to say they don't work for what I want, they do, but the WDMyCloud is a lot more straight forward if all you want is some extra storage that is available to various devices on your network - that is the advantage over a simple HDD. If all you need is basic extra storage for one computer, then an external HDD will be cheaper and straight-forward. If you want network access, and don't need the bells and whistles of RAID back-up, then a single drive NAS like this is what you want. If you do want to have the peace of mind that RAID back-ups might provide, then a multi drive NAS or a server is the way to go. Personally I mirror data on external HDDs and store them at a different location, and use the servers, NASs, cloud drive and multiple HDDs for my day to day data storage. As an aside, the 2-bay versions of this (and the WDMyCloud) have USB ports at the back for daisy chaining additional drives to, so this is a useful way of adding extra storage if you have limited USB ports on your computer - I've got 6TB externals on both of the 2-bay Buffalos and a 3TB portable drive tacked to the WDMyCloud.

cjdshaw

Got one of these. There's no wifi so it has to sit near your router. I use it to back up my various computers to, via Time Machine (Macs) or AOMEI Backupper and FreeFileSync (Windows). Since it's already duplicating the computers, it doesn't need its own redundancy. While the interface certainly isn't slick, it works well once set up. Before people start the criticism, I also do periodic backups to a pocket drive that lives at a friend's house.

Enet

I didn't say that it is pointless, I said that it is "almost" pointless. if you decide to spend a decent amount of cash on one then the least it can do is provide 2 drives mirroring each other so that if one drive dies then you still have the other one. All you need to do then is replace the faulty drive. Otherwise it's just a fancy hard drive. I suppose if you already have dual/3/4 drive NAS in your network and you just want to add some additional disc space but with the extra functionality of a NAS then why not. Otherwise I can't see the point.

ninjatiger

For anyone looking at shared drives its very useless for it. however, you can make a shared drive by placing them in a public forder and mapping that by mapping to its i.p address. However it cant be seen externally so a bit useless too. Also the usb port drive cant be used to backup the My Home - meaning if this failed its a endgame for the data. Plus to copy from a usb drive to this it has to be done on the mobile app. Awful device WD stores supports terrible too. im trying to get a refund - paypal are assisting as they ignore you - read the reviews online - i made the mistake of not doing so

ElBuc

Thanks for the info. I may have to get one with high capacity to push it to its limits. It sounds like they have screwed everything down so the less tech users have a simpler experience. I mean 95% of people I know would still have a hard time getting their head around why this would be any use, while at least half of them will be using some kind of remote cloud, and many of them paying regularly for the service. Sometimes simple is better, like for my friends who have all the holiday photos they have ever taken on the one SD card that they bought with the camera, and think that their pics are safe and that it is where they should be stored!

AbuG

It mounts a network drive in Windows by way of the WD Discovery software. So have to login with this first each time before it mounts the network drive. Its not possible in Linux as there is no software for it. There is no mounted network drive in Android except an anonymous unsecure samba share. Can use this for Kodi. The samba share is fast transfer... Everything else is slow. The filesystem on the cloud is kddfs... Never heard of that before. It does backup with Googlecloud , dropbox & one drive copies it all, can't select folders. There is 2 way sync and backup through 3rd party Windows10 apps.

ElBuc

So no mounting of shared volumes even?

Avoid this then as I'm a computer programmer and the off site access using their awful software just does not work. Their forums are full of people with problems accessing their data off site. Great as a standalone home network storage but nothing more.

ElBuc

I haven’t had experience with the ‘Home’ but even the old one will do what you’re after. Are you sure you have it in your basket? If you haven’t already completed the purchase I would be very surprised it is still there. But if it is, grab the 5TB and if it doesn’t meet your needs then all you need to buy is an empty NAS of your choice and pull the 5TB out. A 5TB WD red will cost considerably more anywhere else.

You can go for synology plex enabled nas or cheap nas connected to your network that has access to plex running pc. But still you have to up and run pc and nas device. Cheapest way is buy plex Android and iOS apps separately. But you can’t do mobile sync without plex pass. As I know plex app on tv will work without paying any money.(highfive)

chocci

yes I know but you need the plex pass to access video content which is $4.99 per month and it sort of defeats the purpose of a NAS if you have to have your PC running. PLEX:- The “Free to Use” Parts: The Server and Apps There are some details to get into, but the summary of “free” is simple: The media you own is yours. Of course, we don’t charge you in any way for that.The Plex Media Server is free to use and includes the Plex Web App.“News” and “Podcast” support are free for all users.All of our non-mobile, public apps are free. These include Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Plex Media Player, Roku, Smart TVs, TiVo, and game consoles (PlayStation and Xbox).Our mobile apps (Android, iOS, Windows, Windows Phone) can be used for free, but have limitations. Until the mobile app is unlocked (through an in-app purchase or a Plex Pass subscription), video and music streamed from a Plex Media Server has a 1 minute limit, and photos will be watermarked.

Bjnwee

I'm inclined to believe mrpipster. Camelcamel sometimes is hit and miss with lightning/one day deals. While the Amazon invoice is concise, it can also be misleading, to which I'm not discounting a possible alternative voucher/promotional code could have been used. The thing is, your Amazon Order Details/Invoice *sometimes does not reflect the actual price of the deal when your bought said item. It is actually labelled as 'Promotional Applied' which brings the difference of the item(s) to the discounted price. For example: Gillette fusion 10 refills blade regular price = £25 *lightning deal price = £15 You purchased the blades during the lightning deal session. When you look at your order details, the lower section, 'Delivered **DATE**; Sometimes it will NOT SHOW the lightning price you bought it at but the normal price = £25 Sometime it will SHOW the lightning price in which you bought it at = £15 So looking at the attached image by mrpipster, it may be misleading to say he bought the drive at full price but used a promotional code/Coupon to bring the price down. I have come across a few products that were cheaper earlier this year than Black Friday or even Cyber Monday. I was looking at buying this a while back, and If I recall correctly, the £89.99 price was the same price for the Black Friday last year or the Amazon Prime day, and when you consider how Amazon shuffles prices like a pendulum, there is possibility for it to have been reduced to £74.99.

I'm going to buy a hard drive and use plex as the server. I might be in touch by pm if I get stuck when setting it up if that's ok? You seem to know your stuff. Thanks

Berwhale

I just plugged a 2TB drive into one of my Shields. It's working as a Plex server and I can copy files to it from one of my Synology servers. A couple of observations... * Make sure you apply any pending updates to Plex before attempting to set this up. * Enabling network access to the USB drive took a while. It seemed to fail several times before the username and password were revealed. * The Shield only supports SMB1, this it turned off by default in the latest builds of Windows 10 - you have to enable the SMB1 Client feature if you want to access the Shield. * Network copy performance is reasonable (but not great). I'm getting ~40 MBps when copying over a 1 Gig wired connection.

Depends on your requirements. The range of Synology apps for your phone is quite varied and very practical. One app in particular has automatic photo uploader. (DS File). Only Synology and Qlogic offer this function - automatic photo/ video uploader. You could make your own via 3rd party apps hooked up to IFTT - but for an "out of the box" functionality where everything 'just works' then a purpose built NAS, specifically Synology, is the way to go.

I bought this a year ago & it's been great for me. I run Plex (natively), along with SABNZB, NZBHydra, Sonarr, Radarr, Cadigann, Jackett, Deluge (all through Docker). I no longer really have to leave my computer on. Radarr & Sonarr keep an eye out for my movies/shows, once found, pushes them to SAB/Deluge which downloads, reports back to Radarr/Sonarr which rename & move to correct place on NAS, then inform Plex that something new is there. I do nothing now apart from tell Sonarr/Radarr if I'm looking out for anything new. It easily pushes a 4K video to my TVs/Shield/Apple TV etc (Gigabit ethernet). I've not tried more than 1 consecutive 4K stream, but it copes with at least 1 4K along with a 1080p to a different room. I'd totally recommend it to most people. Heat from me.

Regarding the warranty, you never know what they might say to get out of it, for example; it wasn't bought from an approved reseller. I think normally warranty and support in the 1st year is with the retailer directly, then anything after is with synology. I just try to use the credit card protection on anything I can just in case.

I got mine today too. Finally. Some hassle about lack of comms, but it arrived within 9 days since placing order, which isnt too bad. But the box wasnt sealed i.e. Opened box taped down with brown tape. I did register the product on Synology website with the serial number which it did register without any issue. Just wondering - shouldnt the warranty n support be with Synology directly after registering...?

Mine also arrived today

Same here, received mine today after he said via email it would be with me by Wednesday. No automated emails since order confirmation or tracking number - it just turned up. Looks brand new and fine - just a bit of unnecessary stress about the order. I just hope Vargtech is still in business in a few years to handle any warranty issues - if not I paid via credit card I just hope PayPal doesn't invalidate the section 75 relationship in this case. Regarding the unit, it is surprisingly plasticky (skeptical) unexpected considering the price.

I don't think most people understand what is this good for. This particular model had 10G networking, it is useful to have VM's connected directly to NAS storage. Not useful for average joe IMO.

According to the three camels, it's the lowest price it's ever been on Amazon from Amazon or any other third parties. https://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/QNAP-TS-453Be-2G-Celeron-Quad-Core-Compliant/product/B07B97BLYB It's also the lowest price I've ever seen anywhere, to date. I don't get why people are voting cold. If you're looking for a QNAP TS-453Be, it's the best price. Not a fantastic deal, admittedly, but still the best price.

I think this is the ** normal ** price on amazon. I have been expecting a much lower deal on Black Friday

I think people are voting cold for 2 reasons; A) No HDD 's included or B) It's not synology

Don't know why people are voting cold. Lowest ever price on camelcamelcamel and also good transcoding support as per Plex . Have been looking for a good NAS since I returned my ex4100 which was a big disappointment.
