I wanted to get all of your inputs/opinions on whether to build a NAS with FreeNAS (or another recommend platform) OR buy a synology? From a cost, reliability/stability, and easy management standpoint. Why did you choose one way over another?
Also, if you could recommend what kind of "setup" you have?
I will be using the NAS for my ESXi/vSphere lab AND for all my personal files, pics, data, etc.
