I have a 1817+ which uses an old 412+ as backup.

Looking to retire the 412+ and given the closeness in pricing, wondering if a 918+ or expansion DX517 would be a better choice?

DX517 you only have 1 brain to work with.
Ds918+ you have 2 brains to work with.

Imo, is all about you and how comfortable are you.

517 gives you one extra bay. But it's tethered to the 1817+.

An 918+ is a standalone unit which offers hardware redundancy.

I wonder if anyone has ds918+ and try the transcoding on a LG TV with Video Station could see embedded subs but not hardcoded (so can turn on/off) with 4K?

Looking for a 4 bay NAS for files storage and below 2 deals found in Lazada:

DS918+ $679
DS418play $634.50

Considering the original difference in price should be $100, I would have gone for DS418play.

However with the price difference above, I cannot decide which to go for.

For my usage both are more than capable enough, if it is your choice ehich would you pick?

DS918 - $679 (Lazada)
Toshiba 4TB - $153 (Tradepac)

Total = $679 + $153x4 = $1291
Wow, I was considering buying a nas for home use, but after seeing the price I almost flip

My first time looking at nas as I was using iCloud storage. I've been reading up a bit, seems like it's safer to also include a back up solution for the NAS. Where do people usually back up their bad to?

If I go for budget NAS, 4 bay with let's say 2Tb drives x 4, and wanna do an on-site back up, do I still need another 8tb of on-site storage to back it up? And also to buy a UPS to at least perform graceful shutdown. And how much would it cost to set it all up approximately? Sorry for troubling anyone that can help me.

You may want to consider a 2-bay basic NAS. With this setup, the cost will be lower with the 2 HDDs.

Alternatively, if you need a 4-bay NAS for your needs, populate it with 2 HDDs first, then expand when your budget allows.

I'm using a DS716+II with a used external HDD as backup. The external HDD used as backup to the NAS needn't to be a same capacity as your NAS. In my case, I don't use a UPS for my need.

If the external disk capacity not same, means can't do full backup?

Do you need a 4TB HDD? I replaced my 2x1TB HDD with 3x2TB for $120+ each.

Well if you want backup of a backup, you of course have to buy

Ie.

4 x 2TB on raid 5 gives you 6TB of usable space

You just need to get an external 1x 6TB to hold all the data as backup

Alternatively you can simply backup to cloud as a secondary backup.

It is really flexible.

If you are really afraid of data loss yet wants to save some money to start off..

Perhaps a RAID6 will do you better. You get lesser storage capacity but with more redundancy


The battery is secondary. Your house power irregular? A cheap ups cost approx $50-70.

Thanks bro, house power is ok, but if I make the move to use a NAS, I wanna play safe and prevent data loss, if ups is only 70-80, then I think it's v worth it and gives me peace of mind.

How much would it be then to get the 4 bay, 2Tb raid 5 set up?
