Everything works as expected
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.
1 out of 4 disks DOA
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
Pros: - Works exactly as intended. Has claimed storage, access speed, and ATA secure erase features.
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.
