Been meaning to thank you, LJW, for several months. I took your advice and got the same server. It's awesome as a Plex server. I also use it for my security cameras.

Thanks again.

@LJW, link? Also, does the WJ in "LWJ" stand for Wear(ing) Jorts? That would be super rad.

Hey Pete wow that's so cool! Glad my recommendation worked for you and you're enjoying OpenMediaVault!
You could try this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/123791516248 but it requires some TLC and purchasing some parts (drive cage, SAS card, cables...) before you can get started.
Warnings:
- Stay away from Adaptec SAS cards. They ****.
- I bought the Intel RAID card for this server, only to find out it doesn't support drives larger than 2TB
- Best SAS board I could find for Debian was the LSILogic https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002RL8I7M save yourself some time and just get that if you want to hook up a lot of drives

Oh, and sorry to disappoint, LJW stands for Lord John Whorfin. WTF is a jort?
never mind, looked it up on UrbanDictionary. Loved the example they gave: "check out this jort wearing douche, he's a bottle of moonshine short of marrying his sister"

Why would you build a power-hungry Intel server in place of this?

Get a 4/5 bay external drive enclosure with USB3 or eSATA and a Raspberry Pi 4 and run Open Media Vault.
Way cheaper and low low power consumption. Just velcro the Pi to the top of the enclosure.

I love my Synology. It does so much more then just file serving, it’s well worth the money. This is coming from someone with over 30 years of experience in IT.
