guys I saw some Synology youtube videos recommending to position 2.5" SSD (not the NVME cache) in the 1st bay then mechanical HDDs from the 2nd bay onwards... may I know whats the advantage of doing so and is it recommended?
guessing, is this to add a ssd cache to models without a nvme slot?

I was thinking so too but the model that was reviewed is 1621+ which was released after the 1621xs+ which already comes with 2 NVME slots for caching.

add video:



fast fwd to 5:00min to see him mention this.

can't think of why.....

if drive in slot 1 is part of an array, it needs to be minimally same size as smallest mech drive, so the size will be a limiting factor. Hence i don't think it is meant to be part of an array of mech drives.

assuming it is a standalone volume (not part of a pool), doesn't make sense, unless it were for some frequently accessed data eg serve as the volume for installed apps? if so, i wouldn't do this.

(given his comment on the m.2 being only useable as cache, it implies that this ssd is NOT for cache)

Only other thing i can think of is not to cause heat build up on the M.2 (note his mention of being careful with the heatsink) as a mech drive will be very close and the proximity may hinder airflow and cause less-than-optimum heat dissipation, and depending on the hardware, may cause throttling on the ssd. just guessing.....

I read in previous posts that alot of ppl are having problems with Synology + WD Red combination, but with the new WD Red Plus drives do you think reliability will be better?

Lastly, I noticed most of you are using SHR, Raid1, Raid5, Raid6, what are you thoughts about Raid10?

TIA
Buy whatever drives you want man.

RAID, SHR are all raids meant to serve as redundancies. What kind of thoughts are you looking?

If you want to cheap out - get any ONVIF compliant IP Cam. Quality is just ok, can get them for less than (or around) $50 in SLS/SLT.

$90 for my peace of mind was well worth it
