DS1517+ with DX513

Postby PacoZafra » Thu Apr 27, 2017 12:58 pm

Hello!
I am thinking in replacing my DS1512+ with a new DS1517+, the problem is that I have a expansion unit DX513 and I would like not to upgrade to the new DX517 (too much money).
¿Anyone knows if the new DS1517+ is compatible with the old DX513?

Thank you!

I believe they're not compatible for some reason.

If bandwidth is the only difference between DX513 and DX517.
The backward compatibility of DX1517+ maybe possible.
I believe if this feature come true, more users will buy DS1517+ for upgrade purpose.

I can't definitively say anything about the DS1517+ since I don't have one, but I was able to use my DX513 on my new DS1817+ with no issue. Since the DS1517+ and DS1817+ are very similar I would think you should not have a problem, the only real downside being the potential loss in bandwidth because of the reported older eSATA version on the DX513.

I think it will - the article that Harry Potter presented is like Synology Compatibility list, where there are models an peripherals that Synology just managed to find and test together - as for the the rest - they just did not test due to the lack of sth ...

How did this story end? Is there compatibility between 1517+ and 513?
I have the same problem - my 1515+ died (C2538) and I urgently seek a replacement. But I also have DX513, and the official support says only about the compatibility list.

Help.... :cry:

No idea, I discarded this possibility because the lack of information and I didn't want to take the risk. :shock:

I bought my first 1515+ at an Australian online store. Excellent functionality, I really liked the device. Later I bought DX513, because I work with multimedia content, which takes up a lot of space. Exactly a year later, the "problem 2538" happened, so I bought a new device, but from Italy, since the price in Russia is much higher.After 4 months, the same "2538" - AGAIN. Thank Italian sellers, they will change the device, but this: a) will take some time. b) I do not want to get "2538" again.
There is a chance that 1517+ is deprived of this problem (and Italians are ready to send it to me), but what to do with DX513 ???
By the way, here, in Russia - disgusting support these devices. Devices purchased not in this country dont have warranty support. Literally: "where bought - there repair".

I found this:

(see "Optional Accessories" list! but I'm afraid it's just a typo.)

It may or may not work - but the concern is this. If the expansion cabinet fails and it is part of a disk array you may face data loss and Synology doesn't have to support it...

It depends on what you consider the problem :wink: BTW it has Intel Atom C2538 CPU on board :wink:

PS I really doubt its C2538 CPU has C0 stepping :wink:

You mean whether DS1517+ is compatible with DX513 or not? I think yes (the only difference is SATA speed - it will be DX513's one)

I don't think so. DS1517+ has 2 eSATA ports and can work with either two DS513 or with two DS213 (not wit four of them, of course :wink: )...

The DX513 works fine with the DS1517+. I had four DS1512+ units that I upgraded to DS1517+. Each has two DX513s attached and I have no issues. I think the only difference is that if you were to upgrade the expansion cabinet to a DX517 you will get twice the data speed between the main cabinet and the expansion. They all use eSATA.
