I'm really undecided between these two NAS setups.

Either way I plan to use 5x2TB or 5x3TB WD Reds in RAID5

The NAS will be used for backup and streaming video.

The Synology is the better unit, IMO. Its OS is significantly more capable than that of the QNAP, and there are more modules available to add extra functionality.

Whatever you do, though, don't buy a Drobo. They're slow as molasses in January.

When I look at the price of a decent NAS I start to wonder about building an mITX system for the same or less and the added versatility it would offer.

This little build I threw together is $779.25 without even price matching.

The thing that worries me is putting an 8x card in a 16x slot that is meant of a video card.
I've seen in forums where some people have got it to work and other people cannot get it to work.

I have the 1512+ and I highly recommend it. It will have a greater capacity and be much easier to run than building your own.

You can also price match it for less then $899. In my case I got it for considerably less and couldn't be happier.

I'm tempted to buy one of these and repurpose my existing DS212 as backup, but I also need one of those Routerboards for that to happen :P
