Thanks for posting this.
Totally expect this to be out of stock quickly.
Anybody know how much ram this supports unofficially and what brand/model works? I expect it's the same as the Synology DS-920+ but don't know for sure.

Probably at least 20gb by adding a stick of 16gb, at least per the 920+. I think the internals on this are the same with 4gb soldered and a 4gb removable already installed.

These are fantastic. Perfect for shucked 12TB easystores that don't require any modifications (no tape over pins)

I've got the 1513+ and it's still running fine. Wonder if I should upgrade to this... 🤔

Same CPU as the 920+ but includes more memory 8 instead of 4 and extra bay for more storage and ray configuration and more eithernet ports 4 instead of 2. You can upgrade the memory in the 920+ but then the cost would almost be the same as the 1520+

Do we really need one of these comments in almost every Synology thread? You're paying for ease of use, form factor, low power consumption, and quality with Synology. No one cares that you can build a more powerful server for less, it won't be a nice compact easy to configure Synology.

Do you know if this Synology is good enough for Plex transcoding? Or would that be a situation where building my own would make more sense?

*see recent thread on the DS1019+ and it will save everyone time. I doubt there is anything to add with this "hot take"

Short answer - for full capabilities no, it's probably better to have more raw CPU power to make sure you can handle transcoding multiple streams. This has a passmark of about 3000, so that's about one 1080p stream. If there's a built in codec on this CPU that negates this, I'm not up to date on that aspect.

However, it still depends on your situation. Plex can operate without transcoding streams if the individual players accessing can play all the file formats natively. In that case, I'm guessing this would be plenty capable and actually might be a bit of overkill.

I'd like to know what kind of load the OTA DVR functions put on my system. Transcoding to store the recordings I'm totally clueless on even though my server is doing it.

I got a crazy deal on a Xeon Dell server like 4 years ago and it still has enough power that I don't really have to worry about it too much.
