Recommend you ask here instead. You usually want a NAS to store data and stuff, and still want a level of protection that can be gained via the use of RAID or a similar system.

Shld invest in a better eth cable or use the stock cable?
Any advise? I suppose SLS or SLT got sell the cables right?

Me just got a 1812+ with 8pcs 3tb Red WD from MW SLS. I did a Raid 5 with 1 vol.

But my friends advise me to create 2 volumes instead as it is safer and will have faster recover if any HDD spoils... Is it true?

Just make sure you get from a reputable place when you buying cat5e cables. No need expensive or what, just make sure they don't sell you fake cat5e cables, because it does affect your speeds.

I agree with your friend. 6:2 is a safer ratio. 7:1 is quite risky since you can afford to have only 1 fail. If 6:2 at least you still can survive with 2 failed drives.

im on synology DS 411J with 4x3TB Seagate HDD.

Just gotten the 413j. A newbie too. What raid config would be suitable for my usage to store movies? I want to maximize capacity and at the same time have some safety net in case one drive fail..

3:1 is sufficient. One drive fail still can scramble to buy a new replacement. I tio 2 drive fail before, heng still got way to backup, but damn mafan. :(

Hi there Vulpix and Synlogy pals,

Got myself a 413j and 4 pc RED 3TB harddisks at IT fair.

Still haven't settle down to open up the boxes...

What Raid would you recommend? newbie here...

TIA
Benjamin
