Synology NAS dead - how to quickly recover folders/data

#1
Has anyone had a Synology NAS die, and needed to recover the data? I'm wondering if it's possible to just buy a new Synology NAS, and put the HDDs into it (in the same order of course) in order to recover data. Would this work? Would some types of RAID be easier to recover than others?
