Everything works as expected

Synology 4 bay NAS DiskStation DS920+ (Diskless)
Synology 4 bay NAS DiskStation DS920+ (Diskless)

Pros: - Everything promoted works as expected, from file storage to running docker and VM on it - Beginner friendly

Cons: - DS920+ comes with only 4 GB ram and one memory slot. Not ideal for expansion at a later stage - Default configuration is not very secure. Geared towards ease of use, some insecure settings are present.

Overall Review: - Definitely would recommend this to people who are not very tech savvy. For those with experience in IT especially networking, customizing this unit takes a long time. - Don't sweat on the official compatibility list. I am using a type of HDD not on their list (Toshiba Enterprise 16TB) without issues.

Most Critical Review

1 out of 4 disks DOA

Toshiba 16TB Enterprise HDD SATA 6.0Gb/s 512e 7200 RPM 512MB Cache 3.5" Internal Hard Drive MG08ACA16TE
Toshiba 16TB Enterprise HDD SATA 6.0Gb/s 512e 7200 RPM 512MB Cache 3.5" Internal Hard Drive MG08ACA16TE

Pros: - Bought 4 disks. 3 of them work as expected, with stated capacity and superior R/W speed

Cons: - 1 of 4 disks bought is DOA. When connected to NAS or computer, it makes strange noise and cannot be detected by NAS nor computer. - The disks arrive inside a cheap plastic box which itself is broken - Quite heavy, around 1 kg per disk. Beware if your disk's encasement is made of weak plastic.

Overall Review: - It's actually a decent HDD had it not comes DOA

Lives up to its promise

SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series M.2 2280 2TB SATA III V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-N6E2T0BW
SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series M.2 2280 2TB SATA III V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-N6E2T0BW

Pros: - Works exactly as intended. Has claimed storage, access speed, and ATA secure erase features.

Cons: None

Overall Review: - It's a bit hard to handle the screw for M.2. Not a con for this product in particular, but a drawback of M.2 drives in general. - Note that this SSD may render some SATA ports unusable. Read your motherboard's manual.

Not up to the claimed speed

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C19D-32GVRB

Pros: - Can OC up to <3200 MHz

Cons: - Cannot OC to >=3200 MHz. Cannot boot to system nor BIOS. System: Asus Z270-K + i7-7700K, used 4x16GB of this RAM
