The Synology DS214+ NAS as a replacement NAS

My good, old but very trustworthy Synology DS211+ NAS is till going strong for the fourth year in row. No hard disks failures, no critical system failures except for the system fan that I had to replace. I am currently looking for a replacement NAS and the Synology DS214+ is the one I am looking for. When I look at some of the hardware specifications in DS214+ I am pretty convinced that is the one I am going to buy.

  • Dual Core CPU
  • 1 GB DDR RAM (Double on memory)
  • Supporting 12 TB storage (Currently I have 2 TB which is not going to last forever)
  • Dual LAN support (I do not need that but nice to have)

Two new WD Red hard disks

Western Digital has made some nice hard disks for NAS devices called WD Red which should be the perfect match for any NAS. So far I have only heard positive things about the WD Red disks. They are fast, stabil and do not use that much energy.

If anyone got any experiences with the Synology DS214+ please respond with a comment. I would like to know if I am on the right track buying this device.
