Qnap upgrade from TS-251A with plex support

Qnap upgrade. Im hoping you could point me in the right direction of an upgrade for my NAS. at the moment i have a TS-251A. i have run out of storage. I would like the NAS to store my personal files, pictures and videos, it will also be used to store movies to play thought plex, i would like to save 4 or 5 IP cameras on it as well as backing up the information on the works NAS (a Qnap that is starting to go wrong). I have looked at your review on the QNAP TVS-951X and im thinking this would suit what im looking for. I could have 2 of the 3.5″ bays on raid 1, 2 for movies in raid 0 and the last in raid 0 for the CCTV. The 2.5″ will probably be left empty for now until i have a need for ssd drives in there and the price of large SSD drives come down. Does that sound right or would you suggest a different Qnap?

limit of £800ish

TVS-951X is a beautiful and very innovative release. It is capable of transcoding even 4K video files. That is very useful if you are away from home and want to access some videos to share with your friends. You can surely use it to back up your pictures and videos as well as backup your other NAS. Qnap is also a good choice because they offer more free camera licenses compared with other makes. SSD bays might become handy if you decide to run a little website like a blog or business page. It will increase the internal operation speed.

And of course the Plex and Roon are both gonna run smoothly offering an amazing way to organize your media and not just that.
