Migration from 920+ to 1522+ or 1621+

Two questions with the basis that I am upgrading from a 920+ so that I can get some extra bays (bonus) and access to 10Gb ethernet.

#1 - Can I just unplug the 920+ drives and plug them into either the 1522+ or 1621+ and have it boot up or do I need to buy drives to populate the new machine and copy everything over?

#2 - Possibly answered by #1, which of the two is a better unit to consider?
Hey there! Making the jump from the DS920+ to either the DS1522+ or DS1621+ is a solid move, especially with the added bays and 10GbE capability. Good call on future-proofing! Now, for your questions:

#1 - Yep, you're in luck! You can indeed unplug those trusty drives from your DS920+ and plug them right into either the DS1522+ or DS1621+. No need to buy new drives or engage in a lengthy data transfer dance – just plug and play, my friend.

#2 - Choosing between the two? Well, it boils down to how many bays you're eyeing. Both units are quite similar in performance, so if you're after more bays, the DS1522+ is your go-to. If you need a bit more room to expand, the DS1621+ has a tad more capacity. So, it's really a matter of bay preference.

Considering your home setup with a sprinkle of small business and security needs up there in the Great White North, either would do the trick. Feel the need to play around with the configurations?
