    Advice on new rouer for 1 Gbps service

    You most likely want to have a look at an ARM-based solution, anything using IPQ SoCs should do fine for instance.

    Building a (low cost) Linux-based ZFS High-Availability Clustered NAS

    Many hardware vendors supports FreeBSD, I don't think anyone running ZFS would advice you to use Linux but oh well... There's a recent presentation about how uses FreeBSD and their infrastructure and why they choose that OS. BSDCan2016: FreeBSD based high density filers Napp-it is also...

    Building a (low cost) Linux-based ZFS High-Availability Clustered NAS

    You probably want Solaris and/or FreeBSD for this but oh well ;-)

    I'd avoid the Evo at all costs but oh well ;-)

    Asus RT-ac66u 100% cpu, no clients

    Do a factory reset?

    Need an advice

    Marvell controller, preferably MLC instead of TLC memory. Proven and reliable combination. Crucial MX200, Plextor SSDs also comes to mind if you're on a budget.

    Should I get a Drobo or Synology?

    At least in .eu they have quite a bit more powerful hardware at the same price as Asustor. Keep in mind that if you're going to mix HDDs sizes you can pretty much forget about redundancy in a sane manner at least.

    Should I get a Drobo or Synology?

    I'd say that you should also checkout Asustor, avoid the J-series by Synology and drop Drobo.

    Not really unless you want faster wifi.

    Differences between SIL3114 vs. SIL3124 -- can the latter run 4TB drives?

    Well, I do know that the SiL3114 are plauged with data corruption even on smaller HDDs if you use more than one channel at a time (that's a very nice design bug) . The SiL3124s aren't much better, also... it's going to be really slow and PCI isn't going to help. I'm recommending PCIe because no...

    30+TB of data in NTFS, yet NAS only supports Btrfs/EXT4...

    It's hackable but it's not a good idea in the long run.... Asustor (better bang for the but than Synology and QNAP in most cases) supports NTFS out of the box from what Google tells but I would recommend you switching to a native filesystem. FreeNAS has the same "issue".

    Current sweet spot for 1TB SATA?

    MX300 is probably the best one in the long run, Marvell controller and Micron flash.

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    Slower than the Fitlets (they are slightly more expensive) however you'll be more than fine with a MIPS or ARM box which most likely will perform better. Not to forget, warranty is a concern if you order overseas.
