This looks interresting, even compare to a rack version... I wonder why they didn't put in it a 10GbE port directly... We are in 2020 afterall.

Well, they are, with their exp cards. Then again, who needs 2.5 and 5G when you can go 10 :D

I've got a trusty, old 1812+, and I'd like to update.
Using as a home nas, first choice would be the 1621Xs+ but it's without SHR (you can use it with a trick, I know, but it's unsupported).
What do you think about the 1621+ with a 16GB ram update and a 10Gbe card in future?

Well, the apparent differences are CPU, a built-in 10G, more RAM, and a better PCI slot. It all depends if any of these out of the box things will matter to you.

Keep in mind that the new 1621+ is running on the AMD chip, not intel, so there might be some package changes that might need to upgraded but apart from there, guessing 1621+ will be more than enough. Also, if you are gunning for SHR support then you don't have too much choice, right?

Also, the price difference is more than double, so also something to consider. If you have a budget for an XS model I would suggest getting 2x1621+ instead of a single XS, considering that you can also upgrade the ram on it, add 10G if you need to, and get the same amount of bays. Still, the CPU difference will be there, but again, depending on your needs it is a question if you will notice it or not.

Some performance info from Synology, you'll have to go back and forth between 5 Bay (DS1621+) and SA/XS+ (DS1621xs+) pages to compare them.

Performance: 5 to 8 Bay
Performance: SA/XS+

And @capitanharlock here's the datasheet for your DS1812+

Looking at the DS1812+ the CPU is a dual core 2.1 GHz and the chassis has two 1GbE interfaces, also 1GB RAM expandable to 32GB. I'd start by comparing that to newer NAS and considering how you feel about performance today.

Off the top, it would be but as @fredbert said you could compare specs and go from there.

On thing is for sure your 1812 model will not support any new DSM version and HW vise it would also be an upgrade.

Still you will have to compare a bit from your end and see what you want to use the new nas for. The stronger the model the more options you will have but again, it all depends on your needs

Thanks, the 1812+ is struggling with the Surveillance station and three cams.
Hope the 1621+ will perform better.
