Synology NAS expanding?

Hi I read that Synology advice the use of expansions units as stand alone storage pool for best performance. I cant find any information what kind of lost in speed you get, moving from an standalone DS1819+ with 8 drive to connecting an DX513 and expanding to 13 drives. Is this something you have testes? I have tried Google searches but haven't fount any information. Mikkel

You will very unlikely to experience the performance dip. The only limiting factor in this setup is a 1GbE port at the back of the NAS.

Either you build a separate RAID or expand the existing one your speed will be around the same.

I hope this helps.
