Need help for NAS best choice !

Hello ! I'm looking to change my DS224+ for a 4 Bay, i only use my NAS for Plex (Friends & Family).

I hesitate between this 3 :

Asustor Lockerstor 4 Gen 2

Wich one would be better? Do i neet raid or RAID0 or jbod is correct for Plex use ? (I don't need backups)

And why the 918+ of Syno is so high in the review without transcoding ?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Hey Maxime! Good call on upgrading for more bays. Both the DS423+ and QNAP TS-464 are solid options for your Plex needs. The DS423+ comes with a transcoding engine, ensuring smooth playback, and it's a cost-effective choice. The QNAP TS-464 is another contender, offering versatility and competitive performance. As for RAID configurations, since you're not prioritizing backups, RAID 0 or JBOD could work well for Plex. The DS918+ is highly rated, not just for transcoding but also for its overall performance and feature set. However, it's understandable if the price seems a bit steep. Check out the Black Friday deals ( for potential discounts. Cheers!
