So which one is the winner? N3710 @ 1.60GHz? Another one? Are you ready to provide your own benchmarking? Your criticism ONLY is not something we ALL can rely on ...
That seems to upset you. Simple fact is that you try to make a point out of 1 sample. 1 sample is not enough, compared to the N3710.
That's not criticism, it's a fact.
polanat wrote:2. The previous poster didn't only emphasize on the CPU but also the lack of innovation overall.
My post was CPU related ONLY. Criticism re CPU is around 90% within this thread. I do not agree with the lack of innovation provided you prove the opposite
Please read what I wrote once again. I mention the previous poster, read his post again.
He made valid points and you are asking me to what again? Sorry, makes little sense, just read more and look at the NAS and its specs is my best suggestion.
polanat wrote:3. No, the outdated, unfit for many CPU is not the only issue for many. However it represents a lack of vision and sync with what customer expect, want and/or need that makes one wonder about Synology's future. For me, it definitely made me rethink my purchases, I started looking at other . solutions so did many others as I understand.
OK, however, pls provide the exact model from the competitor (QNAP or whichever) in order to demonstrate the other competitors "right vision" from your standpoint.
It's ok to love Synology, I did and still love my NAS although it's outdated and doesn't fit my requirements any longer, but I keep my eyes open and see innovation from QNAP for example. In the end, reading comments, actual testing, from other places than this forum as well help make an informed decision. Otherwise you're only listening to the echo of your own voice which is the echo of Synology's marketing pitch.

Let's see the future. It is too early to discuss any sales rates for the newly announced models, however I would prefer constructive criticism baked up with data (primarily from the major competitors) rather than pure emotions ...
Are you just going to repeat what I said to twist it in a way that undermines it?
That's not emotional by the way. It's a guess which I specified I can't back with data. Where is the emotion?
It's ok to be a fanboy (no offense intended, I insist on this as you seem quite sensitive), Synology did and does great for many product lines. Just not this one, most of what I read is in agreement.
We all want what's best for our own needs. Looking at other solutions is allowed and in this case many seem to do just that.
If you're happy with DSxx17+, good for you. I'm even happy for you. Many are not, including me, and it seems to be the vast majority of existing customers that were eager to buy their new NAS and are very disapointed.
That's about it, no need to try to rewrite what others are saying, it's not helping anyone but justifying your own point of view.
