Would have expected this to be a bit lower for BF. Wasn't this $120 on prime day?

It was $130 on Prime Day which is when I bought it. Might be worth waiting a week to see if it hits that or lower.

Very good information! I bought it for $130 so I must have been off on what day I bought it. Now we wait...

Yes, we should wait, no rush.
FYI. This is the weakest one in DS'es.

If you are looking at an NAS for Plex Transcoding it helps to compare the NAS against the Plex NAS Compatibility Guide: https://docs.google.com/spreadshe...0jdj3tmMPc

That guide indicates the DS218j doesn't do software or hardware transcoding in Plex. If you need Plex transcoding look at the Synology and others that use Intel processor based boards. Those tend to be more expensive.

As much as I want to throw my Dlink sharestation to the curb while beating it with a baseball bat office style I feel like there might be a better deal on this in the next few weeks. If there isn't I'll be still kicking myself for not getting the 718+ off woot for $275

Mine is still kicking pretty well after 7 years! My DiskStation is pretty darn reliable.

I've read about what seems like a lot of failures with the 218+. I almost bought one from a guy who had it warrantied twice. Are the other Synology 2 bays more reliable?
