Should I be concerned - C200

Postby mobiledynamics » Thu Aug 24, 2017 3:11 pm

I have had our 412+ for like forever....Currently about 500GB shy of maxing out on out 10TB storage


Looking to replace it with the 1817+ but am concerned about the processor flaws....
Dare I just hold for the newer/to be released 6 bay.
Or whatever ~fix~ is currently in place is ~fine~ on the new 1817+

The DS1817+ was supposed to be fixed with a motherboard change.
There is another posting of a dead DS1817+ under the Installation and Configuration section.
I would at least wait to hear more about that dead NAS and the cause!
Sounds like maybe the Intel recommended motherboard change does not work?

You could avoid the whole issue by buying a

DS918+ (4 bays) and DX517 (5 bays) for £960

DS1817+ (8 bays) for £931

I've got a DS218+ that has two core which has similar performance to the Intel Atom C2538 checkout.https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/compare/4595839?baseline=4524016 .

The 4 core Intel Celeron J3455 is a faster CPU and uses less wattage if you planning to buy a new system now. Until they do a CPU refresh, if you really need the possible 18 bays you need to wait.

Individual opinions will vary, but for me, I trust the fix. This issue got a whole lot of attention from Intel, and from some of their biggest customers. So much so that I bought a 1815+ (factory refurb with fix applied at factory) only a few months back. The 1817+ was available and is much better with its 10GB Ethernet option, but I got a deal I couldn't refuse :)

The new quad J3XXX CPUs are much better, so if you can, I would choose an 18+ model.
918+ with its built in m2 cache slots is an excellent option if SSD cache is in your plan.
1815+ (factory patched board) 4GB 5x6TB WD RED
