I've been considering the Synology DS414 for a home NAS - mainly used to store photos (3-4TB), serve as audio server for my Sonos system, occasional video streaming, and serve as on-site backup (also have off-site backup already covered).
From what I can gather, the main difference between the DS414 and the new "j" variety is that the new DS414j has a slower processor and overall slower performance. It is, of course, about $100 cheaper. I also noted that the DS414j doesn't allow hot-swapping which would be nice but not a deal breaker.
Are there other major differences I should be aware of or consider? Will the performance differences be noticeable?
Since this will be my first NAS, I don't have a baseline to compare with. Here's a spec comparison from Synology's website:
