Description

The Synology DS920+ is a NAS for home use with a powerful Intel Celeron Quad-Core processor. This 4-core processor improves the indexing of photos and reduces the response times of databases. You can stream, open files, and move files very quickly. With 4GB RAM, you can do several things at the same time on the NAS. For example, you can stream an HD movie to your TV via Plex while you make a backup of your computer. Install up to 4 hard drives. The DS920+ also has 2 built-in M.2 SSD slots, unlike its predecessor the DS918+. Install 2 NVMe SSDs to create an SSD cache and make your NAS several times faster, for example. The 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports double your potential internet speed.

Fast NAS with many possibilities and future proof

  • Fast
  • User friendly
  • Pricey

I have only positive experiences with Synology, I used my previous Synology nas for 9 years and sold it because of the purchase of the DS920+. Purchase may be pricey, but you will enjoy it for years to come. I do believe that it is better to choose the Plus series so that they continue to offer sufficient performance in the future, you can also place extra internal system memory, the Plus series has more options compared to the entry-level J-series, if you only want filesharing want to do and not make too many demands, then the J-series is fine.

Top device with many possibilities

  • DSM operating system
  • Solid product
  • noise level is what a the high side, adjustments needed

I bought this NAS as a replacement for a DS216+ and DS209. With 4 HDD slots, all hard disks can be accommodated and that saves another device in maintenance and power. In addition, of course, completely futureproof with the latest series from Synology. installation is a breeze if you've done it before with a Synology NAS. It takes some time to transfer large amount of data to new HDD, but you can do other things in the meantime. The Synology Migration Assistant does the work for you. Then check / adjust the various settings and you're done. I personally find the NAS a bit noisy. You can also read more complaints about this on the various forums. Solutions are available in the form of vibration-damping mats under the cabinet, securing the HDD brackets between Velcro (soft side, not the side with the hooks) in the frame and screwing the HDD into their brackets instead of the plastic clips that Synology supplies. After these adjustments, I find the sound production quite acceptable. Also considered ordering two Noctua NF-A9 FLX super quiet fans to replace the stock fans. That could possibly be one last adjustment. The NAS comes standard with 4GB of memory and I bought another 4GB for the free slot so that my DS920+ now goes like a rocket with 8GB. I didn't install the M.2 NVMe SSD for setting up a cache because it probably won't give much speed gain for my use (file server, few programs running, no VMs or anything). And I can always do that later. For the time being very happy with this Top NAS and can recommend it to anyone who is willing to pay for it. Please note to also put good NAS drives in it and not "regular" desktop PC drives. I don't have to say anything about the service and delivery by Cool Blue, do I? Loved that they delivered by bike!!

good file server

  • faster than its predecessor (DS415+)
  • Predecessor broke down, after transferring the drives, the new one immediately recognized the drives and asked if it was a migration, then took over all settings and users

does what it's supposed to do

Excellent

  • Quad-core processor is pretty fast
  • Space for 4 HDDs and of course expandable to 9
  • Price

It has been in use for half a year now. It is mainly used for my (large) photo collection. The powerful processor is useful for processing and sorting v.d. photos. It is a very suitable media server and of course also as a backup for my other devices (within my network and remotely). I have been using Synology for years (started with the ds212j) and have always been very positive about the brand. The first NAS is still in use (albeit for less intensive tasks). It's not the cheapest nas on the market but it's easy to use and (so far) reliable. My experience with synology is not only based on this model, I have been able to use several other models* (as a backup server, surveillance server and friends and family's nas set up). *ds411+,ds713+,ds716+,ds216play,ds218+...

Simply a top NAS product with many possibilities

  • many apps
  • fast
  • management from the outside is a little less

If you want to do more than just data storage and data sharing, Synology has a lot to offer. Applications like Docker but also Synology Mail Server plus are really fantastic.

Migrate without a headache.

  • Painless migration
  • Full software
  • External adapter

Migrated from a 10 year old 1511+ to a 920+. From + to + can be done very easily with built-in migration software. The migration went smoothly for 1 to 1 transferable disks. ALSO the 2 RAID 1 drives. A JBOD from 2 to 1 disk can of course not be done in 1 step. The build quality isn't what it was 10 years ago: more plastic, another infernal external adapter, and so on. Maybe I should have opted for a 1520+ again. But it is a few hundred euros more expensive.

Very satisfied !!

  • Price quality
  • Software
  • No

I am a NAS fan and certainly of the Synology brand (I have 4 of them now), but I would definitely go for the +(plus) versions. They come standard with 2 GB or 4 GB but are easily upgradeable to more. My last Synology 920+ (Standard 4GB) and just upgraded it to 12GB (with Crucial 8GB 2666MHz DDR4 SODIMM (1x8GB) ) and it works perfectly.

Very good NAS looking for home / small business, recommended

  • Easy to install
  • Compact housing
  • LAN port speed, great for home and small business but competing devices come with faster network ports

Before I bought the Synology NAS, I had more than a year of experience with a DIY system (Raspberry Pi with OpenMediaVault and a number of external drives). That works but still requires a lot of maintenance and was less stable than I expected from a NAS system (as in, updates that caused everything to be reinstalled). So switched to a full-fledged NAS and opted for the Synology DS920+. All in all, a very complete NAS for the home. Software is all very well put together and installation is therefore easy. The housing is compact and is firmly put together. Limited sound production (especially depending on the type of hard disks you use). Energy consumption is also very low, which is nice for a system that is on 24/7. One "disadvantage" is the LAN port speed. 1Gbs is standard and not many home/small business networks will have faster speeds yet. But competing NAS systems from other providers sometimes already offer faster network ports (eg 2.5gbs or even 10gbs). For me personally not a decisive "disadvantage" because the NAS offers link aggregation (2 LAN ports can be combined) and setting up a faster network at home requires quite an investment in network equipment in addition to just the NAS. The advantages of Synology (very good simple software) really make this a perfect NAS for me.

perfect device for media server and home assistant

  • Docker support
  • Central point of your files
  • migrating from an old nas can be tricky because of backups

I used to have the ds418, unfortunately it didn't have docker support. I have this server now as media server and home assistant. works like a charm!

Top Product this Synology DS920+ Nas

  • expandable
  • SSD M2 spots
  • takes time to install

The place to use four disks as a Backup NAS server or as a media server is of course amazing. Due to the expansion options, it can be made super fast, so it is definitely recommended.
