Synology NAS "conundrum"

I'm thinking of building a NAS with a RAID 10 array so I could manage more easily my vast multimedia collection and home videos that may go up to 64TB in the near future (128TB using a RAID 10 array).

I've been looking up the Synology DS1821+ (8 bay) due to its many features and possible upgrades but especially because of accepting 16TB drives instead of "just" 14TB drives.


However, a major shortcoming for me is its maximum volume size of 108TB regardless of disk size, even though eight 16TB drives give 128TB.

Am I missing something? Is getting an expansion deck the only option for me?

Does anyone have better suggestions? The Synology brand has been growing on me after reading some articles.

EDIT: I found this Toshiba 16TB Enterprise but I'm not sure if it's suitable for NAS, even though it's cheaper than any other 16TB NAS drives from other brands.
