You are trying far too hard to perpetuate a false dichotomy that's bogus anyways.
If you even know what a NAS is to begin with, the "time" issue really is irrelevant. In general, my devices don't require a lot of babysitting. What little upfront setup is done and forgotten about very quickly.
If that's all you got then Synology products are a total waste of money.
More open solutions are cheaper, more flexible, and don't require more special proprietary hardware if something goes wrong. Being cheaper also helps enable better redundancy in case something goes wrong. That redundancy moots many of the more relevant bells and whistles of this kind of "turnkey" device.
Plus the performance of this thing is just crap. Nevermind all the other stuff.
