DX213 - where to buy?

Postby Ravezz » Tue Aug 29, 2017 5:02 pm

Hi,

First of all, I'm not sure if this is a right section of the forum. My apologizes if it should be posted in one of the other sections.

I'm looking for DX213 expansion bay. All my searches ended up with "No Longer Available", "Currently unavailable" etc.

I know there is DX513 availble but I don't need 5 bay solution but I'm happy with my DS415+ and would like to add 2 additional HDD's into it.

Any ideas where to look?

Thank you in advance.

That box was discontinued a long time ago, so it's going to be hard to find a new one. Maybe a used one but very rare. Just get a 5-bay one and use only the drives u need

Hi,

I guess I would have to consider that option. Although there are few cons: 1. DX513 needs more space. 2. It costs more than DX213. 3. Currently I have only 1 extra HDD to use so I would have 5 slots with only 1 HDD used.

Any ideas where I could look for used DX213? I tried eBAy and some other European and global sale sites. Nothing. Are there any other (e.g. US sites) I should consider?

Thank you for your help.

Wouldn't it be easier just to buy bigger drives

Not exactly. Currently I have 3+8+4+4 hdd configuration and have one 3 hdd over. I'm considering buying another 8TB in the future. WD RED 3TB are relatively cheap so selling it makes no sense. That's why I'm thinking of buying DX213 and using it as expansion.

For 1-2 extra disks DX213 could be substituted with other compatible non-Synology brands (e.g. RAIDON), provided you do not need to see your extra 2 disks as 2 extra single volumes (eSata Port Multiplier issue). What's more, your DS415+ can work with external eSATA box only as a separate volume - so for myself it doesn't make much sense to look up DX213 ...
