I'm trying to find a suitable alternative to my running LS-CHL v2. The internal hard drive is failing, so I was looking into replacing it with a bigger model. Seeing the prices for larger hard drives it might be even feasible to brand new NAS for a similar price.

I'm unhappy with the performance of the LS-CHL v2, my CPU often runs at 100%, Load average is 1.68, 2.74, 2.75 and the RAM is almost always full as well.

I would like a "better" NAS. I'm very happy with support in flashing a custom firmware onto the Linkstation - does anyone have experiences with different NAS? Would I want to switch to e.g. Synology? Netgear?

The LinkStation™ Pro (LS-VL) looks quite promising: 1,6Ghz processor and a lot more RAM. Will I be able to run the same custom firmware (Shonk) on the LS-VL? Are the better alternatives?

LS-VL = overclocked LS-CHLV2 with more ram

You can use all your software.

Great! Didn't know that.

oxygen - any experiences with other NAS? LS-VL sounds good as it's the same system as before, but maybe I'm missing out on something?

And all of them are "rootable" with a custom firmware? LS-VL looks better in terms of performance than the LS-XHL.

In any case: Thanks!
