Hello, I am debating between the ex2 ultra diskless, and purchasing 2 (4TB) Red PLUS drives and just purchasing the preconfigured 8TB system.
From what I can see, the preconfigured systems come with the standard Red drives. I can actually save about $40 by purchasing the diskless version, and then purchasing the higher quality PLUS drives.
My question is, what kind of “configuring” would I need to do with the diskless setup? I’m not really comfortable with “building or partioning” drives or anything like that. I would rather not have to install any OS or anything like that.
Is there really much of a benefit from using the PLUS drives vs the standard ones? Saving the $40 isn’t really a huge deal, but the quality of the drives is what I’m looking at. Thank you all!
