PerTulip: I am going to kick out a Drobo 5N I have as part of my backup strategy and am going to replace it with this.

I too would like to kick out my Drobo 5N. I don't have formal speed tests like you do, but my anecdotal experience is that in write speed for random smaller files (eg RAW photos), the bottleneck in my system is not my home wifi speed but actually the Drobo itself. I have a 128GB SSD in mine. For now I edit locally then copy the files over later, but I'd love to just edit directly off the NAS. If the Synology performed better for this scenario I'd gladly switch over.
I find customer support to be pretty good if you purchase the extended warranty - I've had my 5N replaced via overnight shipping twice now.
