    Synology DS1019+

    Five bays of NAS goodness, but not as forward-looking as we'd hoped.

    Re: Synology DS1019+

    You'd expect a box at that price price to include 10GbE, or at least the option to add it later.

    Re: Synology DS1019+

    The review hit it on the head though - you can build a NAS box from scratch using one of the many *nix distributions and it will work very well.

    But you need a degree of *nix expertise to get it working as you want, and it takes a degree od administration to keep the software up to date.

    The big plus with the Synology is the customised operating system which allows pretty much anyone without *nix experience to get it set up and running quickly.

    And that is what you are paying for - the convenience and ease of use of the OS.

    Sorry after using Synology and moving to QNAP, the QNAP is MUCH MUCH better for usability, features and industry-wide support. QTS is leaps ahead of DSM.

    Synology DSM is open source - you can roll your own NAS and install DSM via XPEnology, no *nix experience required.

    I too prefer my QNAPs, but DSM is still very user friendly.

    Too bad they consistently cripple their wonderful DSM software with garbage-tier processors and mediocre NICs until you're hitting well into the enterprise-class rackmount boxes, and even there you lose hardware video encoding.

    Re: Synology DS1019+

    Oh and the difference between DSM and QTS "...strong all-round performance, huge storage potential and 4K transcoding with popular third-party services such as Plex."

    For QTS Plex is officially supported including transcoding, for DSM it's an old unsupported version, not on standard release track and on some Synology machines to enable the transcoding you need to edit the config files through SSH. DSM isn't that user friendly.
