Is the Synology DS920+ NAS Still Worth Buying in 2021?
If you have been looking at buying a Synology NAS drive in 2021, then there is a good chance that the DS920+ has appeared on your radar. Originally released in summer 2020 (between May-July depending on where in the world you were) the Synology DS920+ was the follow up to the hugely popular and successful DS918+ NAS and when it was eventually released it met with a mostly positive reaction. As a standalone piece of kit, the DS920+ is a fantastic example of everything Synology is about – a well-balanced piece of hardware and software that can run the entire library of Synology DSM applications (the collaboration suite, Surveillance Station, Hyper Backup, Active Backup Suite, etc), as well as supporting numerous 3rd party applications for home and business (ranging from Plex Media Server, VMware, Apple Time Machine and more). This combined with the inclusion of BTRFS as the file system of choice and support of Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) meant that this system was, and still in, a fully-featured system. However, the system is now a year since we first revealed the DS920+, as well as numerous other Synology NAS hardware being released since then. So many users are wondering if the DS920+ is still a NAS worth your data and your money in 2021? So, below I want to talk about the main points to consider to see if the DS920+ should still be your next NAS purchase this year.
