Thanks much. Will head down later to grab one.
Wow! It costs 130!

Now I'm considering if I should upgrade to a newer model or buy a new adapter

After lurking here for so long, finally pulled the trigger on the ds1019+. Lazada is now having store-wide sale for Amex card holders. Can't wait to see the possibilities the nas can offer.

Not too sure if this is accurate.

i thought it makes more sense to buy 918+ > 1019+ instead.

$300+ difference is huge. (700+ to 1000+)
*Considering that i paid <$700 for my DS918+

What is the price you paid after the AMEX promotion?

939. Considering the extra ram and 1 Bay, I would say the deal worked for me

I have just bought myself a 918+ with 4*4TB
I’m not exactly sure what’s the difference between SHR and RAID5. Which is the better option?

SHR is synology own raid. If you are not familiar with raid then SHR is more user friendly

Thank you both. I would like to know if in the event 1hdd is faulty, which option is easier to recover? I read about raid and how they stored the data but in the event of one failure, is it very troublesome? I read in Synology forum, some used the SHR and one he’d got faulty and whole thing can’t work

Toshiba if you want value, HGST if you want reliability. WD Red if you like to RMA.
