Wasn't sure if to create a new thread, but with the similarities, I figured to post here. I am mainly looking for suggestions also. At first I was in a dilemma of either running a server or go with a nas box. Upon research, it seem that the NAS was able to complement what I was basically looking for. That being said, I am looking for opinions and suggestions on what brand to get. The one that I had originally in mind was the QNAP TS-419P and low and behold I stumbled upon this site and read that you are using a Synology. Checking it out, the DS410 the biggest difference was the $90 span. Is one better than the other? Is the QNAP that much better to constitute a increase of $90? Is there other alternatives (brands/models) that could be suggested? I would like to make a decision relatively soon.
Also, looking for a primary drive that is not to expensive and it doesnt really have to be too big. Recommendations?
