Yeah, buying it just for Plex would be dumb. The thing is, it does so much more. I have an older 412+ with four 6TB drives in it that I use for backups, extra storage, Plex, Docker Containers, downloading torrents, versioning files, uploading to Amazon images, DropBox, OneDrive, the list goes on. WHen I want to add more storage like I did recently, I eject a drive and replace it with a larger one. Hit a button and go about my day while it distributes the data across dissimilar sized drives, all while I am using it full tilt for other things.

Could I build a PC to do all of this? Sure, but my days of having spare time to do stuff like that and maintain it are long gone. I have a family and other hobbies now. So I pressed the easy button and got one of these. It just works. I have had it for a few years now and all I have done has been swapping out drives for larger ones. That is it. It upgrades itself even to newer versions of DSM and all of the software packages.

All that said, because i am running more docker containers these days, getting in on this deal for the 1815+ and selling my 412+ sounds VERY tempting.
In addition to what I wrote above to answer someone else's similar question.

I use it as my own Cloud. It has desktop agents and mobile agents just like DropBox does. I can have a shared directory that when I place something in it, it is automatically synced to the Synology drive. When I open my laptop, it immediately starts syncing there. If I have a large OS update that I need to get to all the computers in the house, I drop it there and it is pushed out. I can browse the content of the Synology drive from my iPad and my Samsung Note4. I can auto push photos to the Synology. All encrypted, all seamlessly and very easy. It really does just work.

The one in this deal is a higher end more expensive model as it holds 8 drives. There are ones that hold 2, 4, 5, 8 or more drives.

Another workflow I use with my synology is for my photography. I have all my images auto-synced from the file system to the synology drive and then the synology drive to Amazon Image store where I have unlimited storage. The moment I drop an image into Adobe Lightroom, that DNG file gets copied off my computer and offsite and that was VERY simply to set up. So in less than a minute and with no impact on my image development workflow in Lightroom, I have copies on the local disk, external RAID array and in the cloud.

Could I do all this with a self built PC, yep. But I do not have time to do that, do the mobile development, make it all seamless and when it does not work troubleshoot and be pissed off. So I pay extra and I am sooooo ok with that for what I get with this drive.

Tell Amazon that newegg has it cheaper so they can price match.

I agree. This is a great price, probably the cheapest I've seen. But it's now two years old, and if the 1816+ is around the corner, I would rather wait for that. And if that is true, gota figure the 1815 would drop even more.

Yes, this is very tempting... I have had an 1812 with 8x3TB drives in it running for over 4 years now and would love to get a new one. Will have to do some research on when an 1816 model could become available.

If you want to do a lot of LACP, you need more than 4 threads.

Hey just curious why people buy this set up for so much when you can build a dedicated PC just for plex for cheaper. I'm planning to build it with I7 4790 or I6700 with R4 fractal design and it still comes out way cheaper than this. Am I missing something? thanks for the tips and advice.
