In that case, then yeah minimal cost works for you. In terms of feature set and capability with compactness, the Canon TR8520/8620 is pretty good but feels like a huge step down compared to what I had prior (MX 860, 892, 922) in losing the duplex ADF. Very important for digitizing a ton of my paperwork (you have a lot as a home owner).

If you are using Windows 10, keep it up to date on patches, and fully enable Windows Defender's features then it can go toe-to-toe with most commercial endpoint protection products these days.

Thanks for the verification, I guess I'll skip NOD32 these these.
On a side note, I ended up ordering the G9 directly from Samsung, looks like my sister's government discount kicked in, but unfortunately cashback doesn't apply:

Please please please do not take any endpoint protection product as an excuse not to have a robust backup methodology for data that you care deeply about. I have directly worked with multiple enterprise grade solutions and even those are not 100% effective.

Old school term would be "antivirus product". The reason that term was sort of deprecated in the security industry is because it's just not accurate anymore; too many people associate that with the download-file-hash-lists-and-scan-files routine. Almost any modern security program you would load on a workstation/server has a lot more heuristic-style features now for file behavior, often also monitors actions in memory, script engines and possibly networking too. EDIT: Not to mention cloud everything cloud all the things cloud this cloud that

SHIIIIIII, for some reason I realized my DS1520+ order never went through.....fuuu it was on sale for $630 and apparently the order  never went through  and I didn't notice.

So like you had it in your cart and didn't complete checkout?

Yeah, I was almost sure it had completed check out but apparently I never followed up.

 

Is $699.99 the normal price? That is what I am seeing most places: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1584539-REG/synology_diskstation_ds1520_5_bay_nas.html

If you want to keep costs down, the DS920+ seems to have the same CPU, so it should not affect your ability to run lots of extras on it, but just one disk less however it's $150 cheaper: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1570609-REG/synology_diskstation_ds920_4_bay_nas.html

I was doing a ton of reading on the DS920+ but its $550 now and dropped to $440 on BF which means the discount was larger on a sale. vs. a $70 discount on the DS1520+. I might just wait to see maybe there's another sale on either units hopefully on Christmas rather than paying full price. We'll see how it goes. I have a lot of things on my plate so its not the highest priority.
