True enough I don't consider most consumer products to have a stated support life cycle , but my real concern and beef is that the DS409Slim has only been updated to the DS411Slim, while the one bay examples you listed above have had a x10, x11, x12, x13 and x14. I can certainly agree that 4 supported hardware model releases is sufficient. The 411Slim has a mild CPU speed bump, but admittedly doubles the RAM to 256MB; if there was a DS414Slim I'd quit my whining and upgrade, but the notion of upgrading to 3 release old hardware with a *possible* DSM lifespan of a couple more years max is not inviting.norcat wrote:Llama wrote:Oh my, I wonder if this is when they'll announce that the DS411Slim (and other x11 hardware) will no longer be supported as well.
As far I know the products don't come with any DSM update guarantee, although DSM update functionality is a built-in part of this OS and this indicates some updates should/could be available after its initial release. A quick look at the support for one-bays shows this pattern:
114: 4.3 current
112: 4.3 current
111: 4.3 current
110: 4.3 current
109: 4.2 Apr 2013
108: 4.0 May 2012
107: 3.1 Nov 2011 (+ later patch)
106: 2.0 Jan 2009
101: 2.0 Jul 2006

I'm interesting what new features brings DSM 5.0. Will see.
Especialy Virtualization is hot.
