Aloha everyone..

Does any one know if Synology plan to release any PLUS series soon with an i3 processor at all?

I have a 916+, and inspite of buying it with the knowledge that it should transcode one channel of 4k video, it struggles and stutters immensely?

I've researched extensively how to fix this, bought a Plexpass to enable Hardware acceleration, tried Video Station which has HW acceleration by default, and no matter what I do, it cannot stream/transcode 4k video?

Was at a friend's the other day, and he has a QNAP with an i3, and it works like a dream. I do not like the software however, and do not see myself using it. I'm very comfortable with DSM, and intend to use Synology only?

Thanks

I dont know but GD i hate ebay sometimes. I have $1750 more in debt, since I scooped up a DS3615XS + 32GB Made an offer on the both the ram and the DS3615+, I suppose it was meant to be. Saved $350 on the NAS, and 60 on the ram from asking price. That is $50 a stick. Guess it will be maxed out now. Almost have enough for the 10GBE card with ebay dollars now! $130 coming back.

Upgrading from the DS1812+

I really wanted to like qnaps product, but I just like what works for me I suppose. I also took a hard look at Asustor with the AS-6210T, but went back to synology in the end.

I like the 3615 because of its cpu upgradability 10gbe , and up to 36 bays. with dual dx1215
