I'm looking for a new Synology NAS and I believe 8-bay is the sweet spot for me (I like to use RAID6). My current 'old faithful' (~8yr old) NAS is a DS1812+, which has always been rock solid and is the reason I want to remain loyal to Synology tbh. I've read some absolute horror stories about unreliability and eventual NAS-death caused by dodgy Atom CPUs used in the DS1815 and DS1817 units, which worries me a bit. I understand the newer CPUs used in the DS1819 don't suffer the same issues... but it makes me worry a bit about the 'new kid on the block' - at least in Synology boxes - AMD Ryzen CPUs. Any advice or opinions on which to choose - DS1819 or DS1821 - would be much appreciated please!
No answers for that question.
