I'm thinking of getting a 2-bay, but can't decide which model. The intended use case is cloud station (or called Drive now) and backup. Probably 3 or 4 TB with mirroring. So it's not that heavy usage.

Now, I don't know if the value-oriented DS218j is enough (i.e. can serve the files for about 3-4 computer simultaneously). Or will getting the DS218play or DS128 be better? Or just get the 4-bay DS418j?

Sorry for noob question, never had an NAS before. Considering NAS because now all my PCs have their own external HDD for backup, thinking of consolidating these backups.

Thanks in advance!
