Recent Review [storagereview.com]

For performance, we looked at HDD-only using two 14TB Western Digital (WD141KFGX-68FH9N0) HDDs. However, if you need faster read/write performance, use SATA SSD drives as an alternative. Random read/write performance is significantly improved with SSD, although bandwidth would be capped by the dual 1GbE connectivity. Increasing memory from 2GB to 6GB should also improve overall application performance and multitenancy, and will come in handy if you plan to leverage many of the background Synology apps. In our large-block sequential test, the DS220+ had 223MB/s write, and 231MB/s read in SMB, and 222MB/s write and 231MB/s read in iSCSI, saturating the links to the 2-bay NAS.

Some other things to consider with a NAS.

Power Protection: I paired my 920+ with a cyberpower SL 750 VA. I use it only for the NAS and it recognizes it without issues. Estimated run time is 70 mins and it has 12GB of ram and fully populated with 4 TB iron wolves. I have it set to start down safely long before the battery runs low.

backups : if you use this as primary storage for family photos and things you don't want to loose. Then I would look into a cloud back up solution Synology C2, Backblaze B2, or others. At the very least I would set up hyperbackup to an external hard drive via USB. Yes the raid helps to protect against drive failures but if the Nas unit dies or is stolen the back ups will allow to to get your data.

Security: if you access these remotely definitely look up videos on options on how to secure them as best as possible for remote access. There was a recent widespread attack on these if people left default settings in place. Wundertech YouTube channel is a great place to start.
Yes this can run a Plex server, yes it can transcode multiple streams at once. And no, THIS DEAL IS NOT LIVE YET. Read the post please!!
I got this same deal earlier this year and have it set up as my Plex Server. Transcodes 1080p with no issue remotely and Direct Plays everything I have locally, including full untouched 4K rips that are ~80-100 Mbps. So yes, good choice for Plex Server.

tried today (11/17), and got this:

"The code has not been activated yet. Please double check the activation date."

based on your post, I'm guessing it's not active until 11/25.

Thanks!

Got this on Prime Day, if you're on the fence for whatever reason just get it. It's pretty awesome. I use it to backup all my devices and for plex, it works flawlessly

Thanks for posting. Purchased two 4tb drives from the other Newegg post hoping this model would go on sale. From what I've been learning here, this is a great solution. Time to consolidate some older single Ext USB family data. Thank you!

Do you also use an off site backup?

Not him, but yes I do with the Synology hyperbackup application. Set to backup to Wasabi right now. $6 / TB / month. Backblaze B2 will probably be cheaper if you're saving less than a TB (as long as you aren't downloading backups frequently since they charge for egress).


Also, thank God for Amazon extended holiday return. Paid $295 for this a few weeks ago when my old ass Synology died and I couldn't be effed to fix the psu.

I use the next model up, with two additional bays, and it is fantastic. It is incredible tool for back ups, storing media, torrents, and streaming Plex.

Do you need to purchase a Plex Pass to utilize transcoding?
