I attached a raspberry pi 2 (Kodi 17.6) to a DS 214+ and never had any issues with format or speed but will soon replace the raspberry with something more powerful.

Looking at qnap ts-231p2 which is in similar price band as 218play...is this better than synology...any advice please

LOL_is_stupid

It’s a bit of a ballache. You need the the command line version of Handbrake as a prerequisite.

Nearly went for the 216j at christmas so glad i didn't. DS118 and Video Station work perfect for all mkv, mp4 and avi vids i've used so far.

All of my files are MKV DTS. Am I wasting my time looking at a NAS/Plex. If so can someone please suggest an alternative.

Nice one. I saw your post, added one to the basket, then researched an online review, returned to hotukdeals to see the posts re price increase so went back and checked out, still showing at the reduced price. I paid, received confirmation email but a short while later received a phone call saying the item was out of stock at this price but I could order elsewhere for the RRP. I declined of course. Ah well... Oh and enjoy your new toy :)

FelixAndrews

I ordered immediately before posting the deal, maybe by 10-15 minutes or so? It arrived yesterday and is currently sat on my shelf waiting for some drives to show up!

Congrats! When did you order exactly

If their link aggregation genuinely works by dedicating a port per disk, there's a genius out there that needs to be hit with a large stick.

igloolad

this one you can upgrade the memory to 6gb it also has link aggregate which means if your router supports it, you can have 2 x gigabit ethernet cables writing to seperate disk thus increasing read/write speeds

mikejbry

Microservers have 4 drive bay slots, can have the memory upgraded, can be used to run VMs or dockers and anything else you like. You aren't limited by the supplied OS on a microserver. Synology boxes are very user friendly however compared to a microserver so it all depends on what you want it for.

tan159

What's the difference between this & setting up xpenelogy on a microserver?

I've got a really old Synology 4 drive nas, the software is really nice to use and they continuously update it.

I use mapped drive as it's easier for wife and kids to use. I have a full back up on a removable drive done once a week. And a second removable back up of the really important stuff. E.g documents and photos. Overkill but worst case I nuke computers and diskstation and lose very little

Cannot recommend synology enough. I've had a ds210j for about 6 years and it's superb for all the above reasons. took the time to clean about 2 inches of dust off the fans and it still runs quiet.

lcassey

Don't have it as a mapped drive in that case, most ransomware will encrypt that as well! Use ftp or make sure you have an offline backup of this too!

I've now got my DS416Play NAS up and running. It wasn't all plain sailing as the first 4TB Red HDD I ordered ('Like New' from Amazon Warehouse) was a dud as it was dead as a dodo on arrival, so it wasn't until last night when I managed to stick the second 4TB Red HDD I ordered in and got the thing up and running. I haven't faffed about with much of what it can do as it wasn't difficult to get Kodi on my Fire TV to see the NAS via FTP, but I'll have a look at what it can do next week when I'm on annual leave. I bought a 4GB RAM module for it but I don't think it needs it - at least, it doesn't seem so having copied a few files to the NAS last night and then played them flawlessly through Kodi (which, fwiw, will be my primary digital media front end) - but I'll install the RAM anyway seeing as it's here now. I also bought another 4TB Red HDD (the second in real terms as the first was a dud as aforementioned), but that won't arrive until the end of the month as Amazon are out of stock at the moment. Following a successful test drive last night, I'm now wondering why I never bought a NAS years ago lol :)

profet

Windows and Synology DSM are very different OSs. I have apps on my phone to access my music, transcoded video, my IPcams, etc. that would be far harder to set up with Windows.

TomScrut

I agree, RAID 6 at least or don't bother. The principle of running RAID with just one redundancy is silly IMO. If one fails then the stress of restoring the array is then put onto the other drives increasing the odds of another one failing, and because the likelihood is that the drives are the same age that they are also at an age where they are more likely to fail during the restore. Still a small percentage chance, but if the data is valuable enough for RAID to begin with then it ought to be valuable enough to not want losing during a rebuild. Obviously RAID 6 isn't bullet proof, and other backups (especially cloud or in another building) are also recommended, but if there is (off the top of my head) a 2% chance of failure per drive restoring RAID 5 then that will be a 6% chance of being screwed on a 4 bay. With RAID 6 that would go to 0.24% (4% of 6%) which is far far safer than 6%! Of course the 2% chance is just a number picked from my head so could be more, could be less IRL but I think the maths involving that figure is correct. Also worth noting I had two drives start to die within a few days of each other (lots of bad sectors) in my 413 so I had to replace them and rebuild my RAID.

Guess it makes sense to stick with Synology then. I've decided to grab a HP Gen 8 and run Xpenology and either pfsense/openvpn appliance on VM's.

I have one of these, it is excellent. Yes it is the slowest one, but that doesn't mean it can't do anything. I have it running my CCTV system, backing up phones, computers, downloading (stuff :)) and streaming music and video to prime stick etc. It handles it all. I am going to replace it with a larger 2 bay version, but only because i have found i use it that often i want the added security of raid for my data, saying that i will still be keeping this one and running it elsewhere.

Heat from me, Buddy! One of the best, well thought out 2-bay NAS solutions available. I have the DS416play (4 drives), and it gives me an excellent day-to-day NAS capability, with up to 12TB of 'safe' storage available (4 x 4TB HGST NAS drives). I also keep an identical drive in the components cupboard, should one of the 4 drives fail. Swap out, and in a few hours, everything is back to normal. However, I do also use cloud back-up - after all, my house could burn down!

Wasn't transcoding that was the problem. The server would just disappear randomly, effectively crashing and needing to reboot the nas to get plex to restart. It would work fine for a couple of days maybe then disappear again. Wasn't uncommon looking at the plex forum. In fairness there was good dialogue and regular updates too try and fix it.

I'm all about HGST drives, the only drives i have recommended in recent years have been the Samsung F4's and Hitachi Deskstars. I did worry that WD would turn them to trash but it seems WD have taken the best of Hitachi and integrated it into their Red Drives rather then putting their WD stuff into HGST. I have 3 (now 4) synology units and never had a.single drive failure with hitachi/hgst. I hear good things post-hgst about WD Red too, but no hands on experience. the hgst 4tb models routinely go for 125-127 ish on scan.co.uk's Today Only offer page. Just keep an eye out. the only brand I urge you and anyone else to avoid is seagate, I had 100% failure rate over 12 drives Inc RMA's in less than 3 yrs. Seems my.experience isn't usually.

The vpn could be useful to watch local tv while abroad, the rest is interesting but there are less manual ways to do them imo. Though an email server would be cool and maybe a today info display.

Out of all the NAS I have tried Synology are the best, mainly due to the superb operating system. Although I don't like Plex so I'd be happy with this. However anyone that does like Plex XPEnology is basically the same OS that synology use but can run on most hardware so a decent spec server with XPEnology would be best of both.
