Dang. Was going back and forth with QNAP and Synology. Ended up ordering the DiskStation DS1817+ and my first 2 10tb drives. But if you are going to get the max out of this thing, buy the biggest drives you can afford. I out grew my 4 bay Netgear NAS104 with it’s 4tb drives. Couldn’t justify just buying new 8tb drives so I got the 8 bay box so I can use my same drives and just add more as I go. Just something to think about because these bad boys are one of the biggest investments for your home (or work) systems. And, keep at least one drive on hand as a hot spare.
I’ve been using a TVS-671 for 2 years now and have been quite pleased with it. Very reliable, about as close to ‘set and forget’ as you’re going to get from a NAS.
Like anything else though, make sure you plan for doing backups of whatever’s stored on it. Drive storage redundancy is useless against theft, fire or other damage. So plan accordingly.
I have been using a TS-831x for about a year and I am happy with it.
That’s a cold spare, can these be configured to have a hot spare?
QNAP is great. I wouldn’t look for transcoding if you plan to run Plex server. I have had a TVS-682fm for about a year. It’s solid. I k is my model will support a bit spare, but not sure about the 5 bay model. Highly recommend if you’re loomking for a NAS.
Avoid ARM CPU’s, 3rd party software is very limited. Lession learned.
