Pass or Fail? Does RAID actually work?

Does a Synology NAS actually work? Should you be using RAID? Do you understand the different types of RAID? Which is best? RAID 0 vs RAID 1 vs RAID 5 vs SHR? Or can you just use an external hard drive?

Disclosure: Big thank you to Synology for sending me some NAS devices and hard drives. I purchased some of the Synology devices (and disks) in this video, but they also sent me a few. Also note that Synology didn\’t see this video or approve it before it went live. Synology also didn\’t pay me to create this video.
