It's been 5 years since I bought a 1513+, for some reason it's still working even after running 12 hours per day (auto switch off at night). The only thing that has spoiled inside my NAS is the WD Red drives, replaced 2 so far over the 5 years. Not looking forward to the day when my 1513+ will up the lorry.

Iím on ds414 for 5yrs, 24/7
2X WD red, 2x HGST

I run a great deal of things on it:
- surveillance station with 3 ip cameras
- vpn (l2tp/ipsec)
- bit torrent (think Iím seeding/hosting over 150 torrents)
- media server for streaming to my apple tv
etc etc

There was a time I used it to host a unifi controller for a while until I switched it over into a raspberry pi.

Think I over utilised it, almost time to upgrade...

Toshiba if you want value, HGST if you want reliability. WD Red if you like to RMA.
Cannot find toshiba and HGST brochure from PC show.
Only Seagate and WD. Which one is more reliable?

Make the effort and find Hitachi. I would not pick a Seagate or WD if I had a choice.

Actually since my 1513+ is already 5 years old, should I look into getting a new unit? I'm very worried the unit might just die on me... Or just wait till it dies?

Aiya... My best practice, decide early on hot and cold drives, then set it up separately: Volume A and Volume B.

This is to minimize unnecessary wear and tear on HDD.

I assign 2 hot (volumes): 4TB surveillance and 2TB for downloading, and the rest as cold volume: 96TB.

Until now none of my 8TB WD Red needs RMA.

But I use WD Surveillance and HGST HDD for the respective hot volumes.

Unless you have some kind of smlj SHR required specifics, just set it up normally; raid or no raid up to you, just remember to back up.

Just decide early on hot and cold volumes..

Edit: 6 years on Xpenology (Synology). Currently running DSM918+ equivalent.

It does not matter if same or different brand, so long as both are of same RPM speed and capacity. Else the speed is as fast as the slower one.

interesting, just realize - Toshiba HDD 8TB is at $280 now from TradePac.

If only SSD has 8TB for me to upgrade from at similar pricing... my nas can be generally quiet.
