Thanks for your reply.
Do you have a Synology NAS? Yesterday I was reading about the DS 218 play. It looks like a incredible NAS. It has a lot of features and a very sofisticated interface software (DSM 6.1).
I am not a very techy guy. Although I never had trouble searching the web to learn how to use the features, I don’t like to spend my limited free time searching for solutions to problems. I prefer more simple and intuitive interface, plug and play like apple devices.
My concerns with Synology is if all that features in the DSM would slow down a medium powered hardware NAS like the DS 218 play and if it is too complicated to use. In their web page synology has 10 different mobile apps, 1 for photos, 1 for videos, 1 for music, 1 for each thing, while wd has only one. I kind like the WD approach on the Dashboard interface, but since it started to get me a lot of troubles (wd sync and UFRAW_batch) I am very unhappy with it now. Because of that I started to think of getting a WD My cloud Home, that seems to be a very simple to use NAS, but a lot of people has had bad experiences with it because it is too limite on features. Then I started to think of getting a synology. How do you compare the Synology interface to WD interface? Do you recommend one of their NAS or another one?
