I think this is a good price. Probably the lowest price ever as far as I know. I maybe wrong.

Come from xpenology, tired of hacking.

That processor though. Check out the Synology forum and the massive thread on issues with that processor.

The 1817 is on sale, but still has the Intel Atom C series processor.

They fixed the stepping issue awhile back, but newer manufactured units will probably have the C0 stepping. Unfortunately, these are probably not the newer manufactured units, so you'll have a fixed B0.

I agree that the processor is unimpressive, but the units are no longer known to be prone to failure.

no link. horrible post

plus, this is a repost: https://slickdeals.net/f/10773379-newegg-black-friday-synology-ds1517-2gb-high-performance-network-a...

EDIT: now OP added a link, but this is still a re-post. a simple search of "synology DS1517+" would have found this was posted TWO WEEKS AGO
Posted on mobile devices. Link has been added. I am aware of the other post. But apparently it is not attracting many traffic. I am surprised to see only 6 comments there. Typically synology deal attracts much more attention. $569 lowest price afaik

I haven't kept up with the discussion after I ultimately decided on a different NAS, but I'm still under the impression that there's still plenty of old B0 stock with board-level fixes sitting on shelves.

I think the only way to confirm is to look at the manufacturing date of your unit.

Found this article mentioning the c0 stepping.

This post discussed about the 1517+ CPU
https://forum.synology.com/enu/vi...5&t=135650

Somebody mentioned that SN start with 1740 is B0 with board fix.

Can any body tell if stepping: 8 means B0 ?

Answer my own questions, seems like stepping 8 is B0 based on synology forum.

Synology had an announcement back in February
https://www.synology.com/en-us/co...tus_Update

It seems like they are saying that they fixed the issue. But nobody is sure how synology fixed it yet.

Well too much for a NAS purchase.

The Synology post says they've extended the warranty on certain models by one year-but why not the 1517+?? I bought two, then saw this post...guess I'll just contact them when they arrive. I'll be using SHA so this should help with failover if a problem does arise. Still bummed to hear the bad publicity on these.

Most likely because synology think they fixed this issue for 1517+model. So they don't give any more warranty. The question is how they fixed it.

Do you know a comparable QNAP model to 1517+? Does QNAP have apps (DNS, chat, etc)? Considering cancelling my order but not sure. I'm already gonna need to upgrade 2GB RAM and get SSD / M.2 card for caching. Planning to use in a small Xenserver environment.
