NAS
« on: May 25, 2018, 06:23:09 PM »
Ive been backing up to portable 1 TB drives attached to my laptop which is a pain for two reasons. One is, wear and tear on the ports because Im not always using the laptop in am optimal position, i.e. tabletop. And two is, having this thing attached via velcro to my laptop which is an extension of the first complaint.
I didn't really want to dive in deep on a NAS, but the more I look, I figure Im going to get a device for a backup, I might as well discard the portables for ev er.
Plus, I thought, if Im going to get one, I might as well get one that will allow me to convert my library of DVD's as well as use my current digital files to stream.
So, for starters, on this device, I see a LAN connection. Does that mean this ruling device will have to connect to my router via cable? That would kinda suck.
Secondly, I assume that once I use all of the space here, I would have to either, off load it somehow, delete it, or add another drive, somehow.
Can anyone enlighten me?

So Ive been looking at the Synology line, and at first the DS218 play was the choice at 229.
But I found the DS218+ more full featured at 295.
The strange thing to me though, is the + goes as high as 30 fps during the transcoding process while the cheaper play transcodes its highest at 60 fps.
Interesting.
Here's a direct comparison. Ill probably end up with one of the two mentioned, foregoing the DS218j
