    I've been in the market for a good NAS for a small business I do side IT work for. That DS413 seems to be just what I'm wanting. I was going to get a Synology most likely anyway, so I might as well get this newer one. Thx Reply

    I have two 4 Bay Synology NAS's for work and they have been excellent. Reliable, fast enough, easy to work with and you can ssh directly to the underlying linux OS. I chose an Atom based model for enhanced software compatibility and I couldn't be happier with them. Highly recommended. Reply

    I didn't see SMB as a supported protocol on these units on Newegg? Does it go without saying that it has SMB support or does no one use it anymore? I use WHS at the moment and want to get away from it and go to a NAS device like this or just build my own. Reply

    Yes SMB is supported Reply

    So are we likely to see the 2 bay version sometime soon then? DS213j ?? Reply

    I'm in the process of building my home network and I'm pretty decided on either a Synology or the Qnap NAS.

    Reading the reviews on this site, I'm left wondering should I go for the DS213+ or the DS413j? What is the main difference, apart from 2-bay vs 4-bay?

    I've read some comment on another thread here that DLNA was one of Synology's weaker points... Is this true?

    Redundancy and file-sharing is my main goal. If I can get FTP/Web, mobile phone access and easy-access from my smart TV, then its even better.

    I'm looking at the DS413j myself.

    The Plex Media Server is available to install on Synology devices.
    That's your DLNA covered, although it won't do transcoding (not enough grunt)
    So you'll need your media in a format compatible with your smart TV (yeah, good luck with that... ¬¬)
    I'm going to just use it as a data safe and run the plex server off of my PC (automagical transcoding)

    It supports FTP sharing.
    I'm sure I read you can access you files from HTTP as well.

    There are also native clients for iOS, Android and windows phone.
