higher margin.

5400-5900rpm HDD but more expensive than Toshiba 7200RPM.

Go figure how much they make per HDD.
Toshiba 7200rpm HDD:
4TB: $154
6TB: $257

WD Red 5400rpm HDD:
4TB: $194
6TB: $318

Difference:
4TB: $40
6TB: $61

Above prices is from @Tradepac.

Retailers are milking uninformed consumers all the while.

okay so I should remove the 1TB WD Red from my DS216+II as well

if I were to use my 2x HGST NAS 4TB with the DS216+II, should be okay right?

Hi.

I am looking to buy a basic NAS, looking at Synology DS216j or DS218j. May I know which one would be better for my usage?

I need the NAS mainly to backup photos, videos and files.

Lastly where is the cheapest place to buy? Sitex ongoing now but is it worth going all the way there to buy?

Also looking at this model but no feedback so far.
Jumped the gun. Works flawlessly. Read somewhere that the NAS won't know if the UPS signal disconnected. But they patched it in the latest DSM.

hi all

i just bought ds918 and 1 3tb drive.

Some queries:
1- do i need to have at least 2 drive to set shr? meaning i cant setup my nas till i buy 2nd hdd if i want to set shr?
2- can i use different hdd size for rest of 3 slots and how is the usable space calculated?
e.g first hdd 3tb, second 4tb

looking forward to learn from everyone on this nas.
thank you
