Now just need to decide on which raid to use, I have 5 x 2td all same specs, so if I was to go SHR or raid 5 any benefit over the over?
Thinking also Raid 6 but not sure if is overkill? perhaps 2 in raid 6 and 3 in SHR ?
Also should I set them all up as one volume if I choose to use the same raid config for all the disks?

If all disk are the same size, should I use RAID5 or allow Syno to create an SHR?
