I know the cool-kids love Synology; but I’ve made a habit of being a contrary git, so of course I prefer QNAP. According to my embarrassingly large inbox, I purchased my original QNAP TS-210 in 2009. It’s been through at least three sets of disks, served hundreds of hours of music and stored 15 years of photos. Not least of all, it was a key part of a demo environment in a book wot I wrote. It has had regular updates from QNAP, for which I’ve not paid a penny.
