Need help choosing a Synology.
I currently am using a Late 2014 Mac Mini as a home server. It backs up to Backblaze and an old Drobo FS.
I almost never use the Mac Mini directly, and it's biggest role has been as a Plex Server. It seems overkill for that.
So I'm thinking I should maybe sell it, and get a 2 or 4 bay Synology instead.
Will something like a DS418 have enough power for a couple of HD Plex streams? (I don't have any 4k devices).
Or should I pick up something like a DS218Play?
I would like to keep the price of the unit around $500 Canadian, so I can't really afford a DS418Play or Plus.
I'm thinking of retiring the Drobo FS, and using it's 4 drives in the new Synology.
