Same price at B&H Photo. Both Newegg and B&H also have the new DS216 for $280.
That model was recently released at $300.

we use synology for our clients. I really like their products and the software they use is very easy to set up NAS.

Been debating between the DS216 and DS216play. The DS216play has twice the RAM and a slightly faster processor 1.5 vs 1.3 GHz. The DS216 has very slightly faster read/write speeds.

Comparison on Synology's site:

Can you run Plex on the OS? Is it powerful enough to transcode videos?

I have two DS212j and am happy with them. Would the DS216play a big step up in terms of performance? Also, can I just pull the actual drives out of the 212j into the 216play without having to reformat them ?

You could do a 'Combo Deal' on Newegg. Combine the Synology DS216play with a couple WD NAS hard drives and save a few bucks.

What about the new 416J at a similar price point? Why get this 2-bay version? Just if you need transcoding?

According to https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/.../201373803, the DS216play doesn't support transcoding video (you can run plex though)
Edit: a few seconds after ren1310 posted the same info Smilie

That's a great reference!

Just my 2c - simultaneous transcoding for multiple rokus on NAS is expensive. I find that Raspberry PI 2 + NAS shares works and scales well. You don't need Plex in that scenario - Kodi on the PI does the job. Just use Ethernet instead of WiFi, and even bluray mkv plays without a hitch.
