a complete newbie in NAS here. Here to learn more.

Looking at Synology 413J at the moment but had some queries to check with you guys. Pardon me if I am asking stupid questions. :)

Main usage is to use this NAS for streaming HD mkv files movies, sharing of data across various platform and also use it as a torrent download platform as well.

Am still thinking of setting up 3-4 IP wifi cameras to it as well. Will this 413J be good enough for me or i need to go for 413 model?

I am thinking of just kicking off with 2 X 3TB internal HDD and add on more at later stage as I am still trying out NAS for the very 1st time.
I have a number of spare External HDD as well, possible for me to plug to the USB port and use it as a third HDD as well?

Any particular brand or specs of the internal HDD to look out for? or recommendation? Or I can simply get any seagate or WD 5200/7200rpm Desktop HDD is good enough?

Hi all Synology users, would the use of the Synology NAS allow for streaming of HD movies from the IPAD outside?
I have a Buffalo NAS and it could not do that.

Much thanks in advance.

imo, if you going to get IP cam, i think ASUStor NAS suits you better.

Looking at a Rack Mountable NAS that is scalable cos going to build my home storage and server.

Just wondering if a Synology is good enough? Or maybe I should just buy my own Mobo, HDDs and rack mount chassis and DIY everything myself? Hmmm.....

Assume you want the NAS to initiate the backup from the network share?

Actually you can, but you'll need to figure out how to script it from the NAS command line.

(ie, from the NAS command line, connect to the network share, copy files from network share, schedule this as a cron job)

that's right, any guide on how to do it?

You mean streaming movies from your NAS to your iPad?

Yes, Synology has dedicated apps (e.g. DS photo+, DS video, DS audio, etc) which you can download from the AppStore onto your iPad or iPhone. You can use those apps to access your photos, movies and music stored in your NAS from any location with a "decent" internet connection.

anyone knows if there will be a huge significant differences between 413 and 413J? 413 is duo core

also, can i just purchase any Int HDD to use it?
think 3TB now shd be the most value for money in terms of per TB.
any brand and made will work well and good?

I just bought my 413 at Sim Lim for $499, comparing with 413J which is $459, pay $40 more gets you duo core, hot swappable drives, to me 413 more worth it. Maybe @ Sitex you can get a even better price for 413.
