Congrats to the winners





I'm a geek, a gamer, a dad and an IT Professional. I have a full rack home lab, size 15 feet, an epic beard and Asperger's. I'm a bit of a Cypherpunk, who believes information wants to be free and the Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

And here are the winners!

 

First prize, the DS920+ goes to @bazzer

 

Congratulations all! Please send me a PM ASAP with your address for delivery. I will post these between Christmas and New Year for those who reply early, and after New Year to the others.

 

 

I'm so stoked, thanks geekzone and Synology! I almost forgot to enter!

 

I'd better start thinking about what disk configuration I want to get. Anyone have drive recommendations for this thing? I've only had 2 bays to play with before, so not sure if it's worth filling them all. I don't have massive demands on storage but would like reliable redundancy. Is it worth getting NAS drives? I don't think it will be running in a very stressful environment.

 

Maybe I should make a thread or do a search! 😄

Congratulations to all you winners! 

 

Big thanks to frietasm & Geekzone & Synology for the awesome comp! 

 

Yes I learned a lot more about what they offer.





<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.

I have sent all prizes out now (the big one yesterday) so all of you should have yours mid-week.

Honestly, the type of drive you want really depends on the workload. If you're planning on running Surveillance Station with some cameras though, fork out the extra for Surveillance drives - they'll last longer with the constant writes.

 

Other than that, learn about the difference between CMR and SMR drives - and make sure when you purchase a drive it is CMR (some manufacturers have been caught lying about this!)
