Setup was easy… I’ve attached a few pics, nothing to outrageous here, it’s a 4 bay NAS (that can be expanded to 9 drives). Kind of a light weight feel to it, plastic frame and hard drive housings, but later when it’s loaded with drives the weight savings was appreciated.Along with drives, I also installed a M2 NVMe drive for cache set up. Later when setting it up you see that a solo cache SSD maximizes the read speed, to get the best performance for read and write tasks you need to have 2 SSDs…

Great device, easily upgrade from 216+II I upgraded from the 216+II that I bought only a week ago, not realizing this was about to be announced. Still finding my way but I can’t say enough about how easy to setup and use these are.PLEX: Right now you need to install the Plex app manually, which is easy. You download the Synology package from the Plex website, Intel – 64-bit (DSM +6.0), and then select manual install in the package manager on Synology and choose the package you downloaded. Super easy.UPGRADING:…

This thing is great! This is a powerful little box that does just about everything you could ever need.Not only does it happily serve up all my files over the network, it does it fast and with every protocol I’ve ever seen. SMB? Check. iSCSI? Check. NFS? FTP? Rsync? Yup.With the ability to run virtual machines (and Docker containers!), I was able to have it take over my power-hungry PC running 24/7 as well as a remote VPS VM I was paying for. It’ll eventually pay for itself with power…
