I'm running out of space and have a lot of data on my pc. I'm looking to build a home nas.

What are the pro's and con's of a QNAP or Synology nas  Vs a home built nas box with a LSI raid card or similiar.
I'm looking at running raid 6 with 4 x 8TB nas drives
I already have a spare motherboard, cpu and ram. I would just need a case, cooler and the raid card
