Synology DiskStation DS923+ vs. QNAP TS-464: Which NAS is best?

The Synology DiskStation DS923+ is one of the latest four-bay NAS from the company and switches out the Intel Celeron chip for an AMD Ryzen processor.

However, either NAS would make for an excellent place to store countless files at home or in the office.
