Well-regarded brand, this price is the cheapest I can find. Only drawback is its ARM processor which might limit the availability of some of the usual Synology packages (apps). I b… Read more

Just set mine up today and quite pleased with it. The DS Audio app for Android is particularly handy for streaming. The main downside so far is that some Synology packages such as Docker are not compatible with the ARMv8 processor. The current Beta version of Plex seems to be to buggy to bother with at the moment but it hopefully shouldn't be too long until an update is released.


Have both, 5 and 6 bay devices. Symbology is miles ahead, in both tech and customer care.


I have a synology but qnap is the only way togo


From what I have read that is true. But I just need storage with only basic "smarts" that can send files to another box that does all the work.


Yeah, should be better than the 215j but nowhere near as powerful as the 118.

Really? MKV is so common that’s a bit of a downer


Works perfectly. Lightweight OS and a lot of the heavy lifting like transcoding is easily dealt with (the exception being MKV files which have never worked for me through Plex or the DSVideo app, regardless of file size).


Does this really only have 1GB RAM? I thought 4GB was the minimum for a NAS? (I have been looking at a QNAP - but a lot more expensive than this - so wondering if this Synolgy would suffice for my own needs (personal home NAS, for backing-up pictures and documents, and watching movies from different locations) Thanks


Which is great for you but not for anyone wanting a 118/218 with ARM processors (DS218+ excluded)

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 this better than synology...any advice please


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 :)


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


Seems like they're honouring it! Arriving tomorrow, according to DPD - hopefully some others got lucky too, and apologies if you missed out.


Good luck!

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.


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


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.


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.

Have a read on the model numbers on the Synology website. Although already mentioned, this is their new 2018 "budget" J version.. just saying incase anyone decided to impulse buy.


looks like a decent enough nas ORDERED :) looking forward to migrating my data across to this.


You tried changing the country to Ireland and use PayPal - that’s way cheaper vs UK... I think I will wait till I go over to the US and order the Gold 10tb (256) as they are $330 each using student discount from my friend’s kids - (note they don’t accept ISIC on their US site)


Only 10% off the 10TB with ISIC, plus postage makes it £339 for a single drive. You'd be better with the Enterprise Gold on Amazon for £328... Gonna need 4 of those bad boys right enough to fill the NAS and have at least SOME redundancy (and hope 2 don't fail at the same time!).


Ah it was you! Thanks!

I had a hunch this wasn't going to come off which is why I cancelled on the 22nd Dec, changed direction slightly and went for the DS118. Very happy apart from Plex not working on it, but it's not a biggy for me. Commiserations to everyone that held on....

good os but poor hardware. so slow. try ds116 for a snappier solution. more ££££ but worth it


Have one of these 1tb version use it to watch movies on my tv excellent and extremely reliable NAS highly recommended


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.


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!

After my previous Synology NAS deal fail, I think this one might be a bit better - hopefully a lot better as I've just ordered one.

​Add a camera or two to it and you'll know why Synology is worth every penny. The cctv app is comparable to some of the best cctv systems.


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 :)


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.


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.

Agreed, now it's just a front-end for dodgy plugins. Although as a media library I'm not sure where you could find legal content that would make the most of it...

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!
