Looking to replace my Netgear readyNas NV+ but cannot decide between Synology or QNAP.
I am simply looking for a robust file server, must be able to hot-swap drives, and be able to sync with cloud servers such as Dropbox.
Ideally I would like to keep the cost below $1200 (I already have 4 x 2TB WD "Red" drives)
I do not need it to act as a media server as I already have a DS214play which I use for media (via Plex).
Am considering the following models :
- QNAP TS-431
- Synology DiskStation DS414j / DS416j
- QNAP TS-451+
- Synology DiskStation DS416
Any advice from anyone who is using the above models or any thoughts about other possibilities will be greatly appreciated.
