Like tommyd, I'm surprised it doesn't support btrfs. It also doesn't support read cache ... I suppose the harddrive(s) will be the speed bottleneck.

Also, the new plus-model (1817+) is kinda showing up somewhat outdated without 10 GB Ethernet. Anyone who can say something about - how well does the 10 GBE Adapter works? (can anyone say something about if the NAS with the ethernet adapter installed benchmarks as good or better than the non-plus model?)

Here is the Synology benchmark between the DS1817 and DS1817+:

When I thought I found what I need, aka DS1817, I saw this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listi ... dition=new
As of the pre-order price, that's below 700Euro...sounds intriguing!
I'm still waiting for DS1817 price in Europe. I believe Hiperbackup will play a major role in my choice. Does anyone knows if Qnap allows expanding a volume with smaller drives? To start with 2 large drives and then expand using some smaller drives.

I don't think Synology or Qnap allows for larger drives to be expanded by smaller ones. Qnaps with the AL processors seem to be limited to 16TB per volume or are unable to expand past it.
