I purchased this device from PBTech and I got a good deal for it. The DS216 series are very powerful devices that can be used for various purposes. The Play version is good for encoding the media on the fly to different devices like tablets, phones, computers etc. They can also be used for backing up your important files or even you can use it as a file server.

I've had this for just on a year and what a brilliant piece of kit. Forget your Plesk servers or a Windows Home Server. This baby can do it all native. File Sharing, Backups, Video, Photos and Music can all be accessed by all my Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro and iMac) not to mention my dogs bullocks Windows 10 PC (thank u Microsoft for getting it right at last). Synology and this DS216play has to be top of your list for home networking and media streaming. Don't own an Android but to be fair they always play catch up.
