My 214+ fills up for the 4tb cause I did time lapse at overseas (hobby, not pro). Then I saw 1819+ with 4x 8tb going cheap, just went ahead. I hardly use the nas features as I am just to protect my photos/videos. Now to get a capture card for DV tapes, maybe add 4x 12tb when price is right.

Thumbs down Warranty Troubles with MediaPro Technology

Sharing

I got my DS918+ a year ago from MediaPro Technology. The power-brick is dead, I went for RMA they told me for the warranty to take place, I will have to send in my NAS too. Mind you, the NAS is not a piece of hardware where one can hand-carry easily. The RMA requires up to 3 months to be RMAed and I have to go back to SLS to collect it.

I am just sharing with any potential customers who are trying to get from this shop or even Synology. They should have been upfront and I would have stayed away from it.

I have checked with Synology directly and they told me to follow the distributor procedure.


I don't think my next NAS would be a Synology. I have decided to buy a power-brick over warranty claims and save myself the three months absence of my NAS.

Bcos ur previous post, u put 2 Yes and 1 No thats y i confuse... Hahahaha

Anyway thanks for the reply and sorry for the noob questions. Newbie here tats y.. 😅 Been researching abt Nas from Youtube and found out there are so many different models to choose from and different user needs till i got headache 😂... Also the cost also quite high. After much thinking, most probably i will go for 4 bay Nas but just getting two HDD first then in future will upgrade the storage
Actually, to play safe, go with SHR (Synology Hybrid RAID) for your RAID configuration. Then you will have less worries about growing your HDDs later on.

That is a load of bull! Never use brain to think before talking. I am referring to MediaPro.

Even more dumber for Synology to agree with distributor's assessment.

Unfortunately, Synology DSM is one of the best out there to manage. I'm fortunate never have to deal with such stupidity.

Still using my DS411+ after so many donkey years. Also have the DS1618+, which is a joy to use.

You really don't need Synology to enjoy Synology.

Didn't know that it is possible. But so far i stand by Synology for its hardware durability. Until they decide to screw that up, and some other manufacturer will come along and make a better price/performance piece of hardware.

DS1819+ or DS1817, if mainly storage and backup

Would like to poll opinions.

If using mainly for storage and backup of many computers (media and video production house), will a 1817 with 10Gbe be a better choice (future proofing) than a 1819+?

the 1819+ can go up to 10Gbe but will require an additional NIC.

alternative is the new 1621xs, but the price is almost double


with an impending network upgrade to 10Gbps, so the 1817 does seem to make more sense.
(the 1817 is discontinued, but still available on special order)

with a network upgrade, editing off the NAS may be more feasible, which will be a plus point with multiple persons editing it. transcoding may not be an issue too as the editors will play it on their own computers.



my question is, apart from the older tech, and weaker CPU (may not be a factor since it's only for storage and backup), which would you choose, and why?

thanks!

editing off the NAS is not feasible. lack GPU, weak CPU. ur editing will crawl regardless of the network speed. Ask yourself if you really need a 10GbE pipe. I will choose stronger CPU (because you cannot change this easily)

ah, to clarify, "edit off the nas" means, the editing is done on the workstation, but the files still reside on the nas, so there will be a lot of network access with intermediate saving of scratch files, work-in-progress. a 10Gbe network will help in this case.

the current practice is to copy files onto the workstation, edit it locally, then rename edited file, upload edited file back onto the server. The problem is, the users often forget to:
a. rename file to reflect new version, and/or,
b. forget to upload file, and later someone else edits off the previous version

i know the ideal is to have some sort of DMS with versioning, check in/out, but sme.......

trying to reduce the steps and make the process as simple as possible - these are media folks, vaguely aware of backup, but it's seen as unimportant and not urgent, until the need to restore arises......



since it's only storage and nightly backups, hence considering the possible advantages of of having dual 10Gbe ports (possibility of bonding for better concurrent access) vs a weaker CPU.

Question Looking for who can recover Synology NAS HDD

Hi, i am looking for someone who can recover the data inside one of my Synology hdd.

Below are the details.
DS414, currently running on DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 2
HDD to recover is a 3TB Sata.

What happened:
A few years ago, my NAS HDD was set up with 3 x HDD with SHR, and 1 x HDD stand alone. A total of 4 x 3TB HDD installed in the 4 bay NAS.
2 volumes were created. Volume1 for the SHR, and Volume2 for Stand Alone.

Then i upgraded all my HDD to 4TB with SHR.
For the 1 x 3TB stand alone, with my little knowledge, i thought i can use it like a USB HDD and access from windows pc. But i am not able to. And i have no means to boot this stand alone HDD because the 4 x 4TB are already running.

I have tried with 3rd party recovery software for the stand alone HDD but was not able to. Also realised that although its a stand alone HDD, internally it was partitioned into 3 partitions. Working similar to a RAID5 or SHR but on a single HDD.

I am seeking someone who can assist me with this, at an agreed amount for the recovery service. Please PM me here or my Telegram @Paladin_a.

Thank you!

Regards,
Palvin
