Depends what "better" is and how much you value your time. This is plug and play, if you have time to build your own NAS, setup the software then it gives you more flexibility but it will take time and maintenance.

Synology, cleaner, works out of box.

Self built NAS, more powerful (Depends if you even need the power, e.g. want to host things on it or add a GPU for plex transcoding), lots to configure/setup/maintain

Yeah, exactly what APhamX said. I've done both and at this point in my life I'm busy doing other things, so I prefer the Synology. So you have to figure out your current and future needs then work backwards to see which is better for your situation.

nascompares has a great article covering Plex support across the Synology models:

https://nascompares.com/2021/03/1...1-edition/

Per this - no support for hardware transcoding.

Some other links I've found particularly useful:
CPUs: https://www.synology.com/en-us/kn...y_NAS_have
Max Storage Size: https://www.synology.com/en-globa...limitation
Hybrid RAID calculator: https://www.synology.com/en-us/su...0TB|4%20TB

I've been hunting for a used NAS for the past month and while I'd love to save a few hundred vs new, it seems that the newer NAS' are way better than the yesteryear ones. Anything 4-bays or bigger tends to hold their value quite well on the used market as well - at least in the case of Synology - which I prefer for their hybrid raid.

For a noob like me, after all of my hunting, I've decided on the 920+ just for the simplicity of it all.
Very good price. Unfortunately the price of storage is currently cost prohibitive for me. Good deal for plenty of other people though I'm sure
$800 and i don't remember if I seen it on sale for below $720 ever... usually around $750

If I knew I could sell my DS1618+ for half that, I'd upgrade in a heartbeat.

I think the price is good if you need to buy NAS and you need the 10Gigabity network spec

No love for the 1821+ 8 bay. That is the one I am looking for. I tried the coupon and apparently it only works on this model.

I use Plex on my 4 bay Synology DS 920+ and it streams perfectly.
