Is it dead like the Atom C2000 issue dead? if so, they have a program for replacing those under an extended warranty.

Just asked a motherboard to Synology trought their ticket system support...... EUR522 with shipping & tax
that's very insane, a 2015 (4 years old) NAS motherboard :)

I don't think that in the future I will continue
to buy synology products because in case of problems I don't want to have this kind of surprises.

Bye bye Synology.......

it is out of warranty - what you expect? welcome to the modern world there you limited warranty would be one year (not three years as Synology)…

I left Synology but a different reasons, as I found their 10G options too limited and expensive vs what their competitors were offering. on the warranty front, I think they are in the right - people who want things cheap get what they get.

I also buy refurb/e-bay things (i.e. switch) , I would not go around blaming Rufus/Brocade when my recycles out of warranty equipment dies and manufacturer would refuse to work on it, it was the risk I knew I was taking..

Do you mean Xpenology? Or really DSM? I believe Xpenology is somewhat delayed in version? Does all functionality works?
… Xpenology is ok if you are comfortable with its limitations
- you are playing lottery with loaders (various loaders based on various original source hardware from Synology)
- things like hardware summaries would be wrong (because they would show what loader is based on)
- the patches are a problem, there is no way to really know if it would work for YOUR hardware. You would rely on the forum on people reporting whether specific patch worked for you or not and then risking it anyway (since anyone could put anything in their hardware and then try to patch it)
- so you will always be slightly behind on patches, whether it matters to you is up to you to decide


other than that , yes the functionality generally works

What i find weird with xpenology is how they haven't found a way to crack the cameras app to make it work without paying synology per license.
