synology nas

Hey guys, looking for a Synology NAS - either the ds416 or ds916 variant. Anyone know of a good place to buy, i'm very flexible on time (~1 year) so if you know of a good time to buy...

Also, I periodically see them on Amazon with sketchy sellers such as https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-l...ition=used

I should stay away from those right?

Thanks!

Have you considered QNAP? I own two and I'm very happy with both of them.

Yeah, I was really thinking about using Qnap, but I use amazon cloud drive as my cloud storage and from what I have read, synology allows direct backup to amazon, but Qnap doesnt.

I have struck out three times using Amazon to buy a DS-916+ . I clicked on "Used & new (47) from $451.00 + $8.49 shipping " and found NEW for too-good-to-be-true prices. Each one of the sellers were new sellers at Amazon. Each order I placed indicated 'Shipped" but days later Amazon refunded my account. One of the 3 sellers wrote me and said his Account was hijacked where numerous electronic devices were ordered.

I ended up biting the bullet by going to Staples. They Matched the Amazon's $599.99 price, plus discounted it an additional 10% bringing the total to $539.99 plus local tax.

I also contacted Amazon's Chat to alert their fraud department. After 3 different Chats getting nowhere I gave up. Currently I see the same game is being played at Amazon regarding the DS916+.
