A look at the Synology DS1520+ compared to the Synology DS220+, including unboxing, overview and creation of storage pool and volumes.

As opposed to the DS220+ which has a dual core processor and two drive bays, the DS1520+ sports 5 drive bays, 8GB memory, ssd caching and 4 on-board gigabit LAN ports.

The DS1520+ is available on Amazon:
