Synology requested for an upfront USD$84 charge. No payment, no servicing.
An unfair practice where they had sold a defective product and for the consumer to bare all costs.
I have to say that I don't regret my decision. I'm surprised with... everything! The performance of the Intel chips is REALLY GOOD, the quality build is OK, DiskStation Manager is really easy to use, the fact that you can install Docker is superb!! I can be talking about this NAS forever.
I'm using this NAS with 2x"WD Red NAS" + 2*500GB Samsung 960 EVO Series con SSD caching.
I'm running Plex, DNS server, CloudStation, GitServer, VirtualMachine Server, Docker with (mariadb, transmission, youtube-dl, resilio-sync, flexget, jdownloader, nzbget, couchpotato, etc...) + time machine copies + 1 VM Ubuntu always ON + other minor apps. Everything using around 12% of CPU.
My CONS for this NAS would be:
- Default 4GB of RAM is... not enough! I bought CT8G3S186DM (check Crucial 8GB on amazon) to expand it to 12GB. Synology oficial RAM is expensive and the information about what type of RAM you can use is confusing. I'm using CT8G3S186DM and is OK.
* It just works, seriously, pop in some drives, follow the web-based setup, and you're up and running.
* Synology Hybrid Raid makes things really flexible, you can mix and match drives and it will give you the most storage possible.
* Lots of applications that can be used on it, including Docker, which is super powerful, I even run a GUI-based linux using Docker so I can run an old legacy app I wrote.
* CPU is fine for normal NAS tasks and basic file extractions and such, however, the unit is supposed to be capable of running 'multiple virtual machines', but it's so slow it's almost impossible to run even a single VM on the CPU. Luckily I'm not super reliant on this feature.
* Fans are smaller, and therefore louder than my old 1813+. Not that they are super loud, but when you're within 2 metres of the unit, they are definitely audible.
In short, yes, I'd recommend this product, just make sure you run it through a high-end surge protector if you decide to get one, the power supplies are quite sensitive to surges and it's a pain getting a replacement power supply.
