Re: Affordable home server backup solution (4tb)
Don't go with 4TB for backup solutions. Their failure rate is much higher. Get 2TB drives.
I personally use a D-Link DNS-320. It is very nice. Easy WebGUI, RAID, Printer sharing, headless, ethernet connection, and quiet when not in use. Fans quiet when drives reach an ample temperature.
What do you mean by "play nice with Synology prosucts"? A NAS is a NAS, they don't play with other devices. It only connects to other systems over the network.
