interested in getting the 214se but I was wondering what exactly they mean by low power limits your apps? I'm planning to use it to back up an OS drive and maybe run a web server.

What kind of heavy app usage do you all use it for?

I think the main difference is that the 214se ram like lower.... so will probably affect performance

Curious to know how memory and processor speed affect performance if I am using it to stream videos over the local network to a media player for example a Roku 3.

I am looking at DS 214SE(0.8GHz & 256MB ram) vs DS 213J (1.2GHz & 512MB ram).

For streaming, not much difference

(at least until the nas go bonkers and has 2 hdd die on you den u gg)

There is no need to get 2 hard disk for hot swap, because you will not likely be in time to prevent the next hard disk failure if your components are so fragile.

Lets be concise between backup and hot swap. Backup is just another copy of the same data. Hotswap in storage normally refer to the availability of extra disk for automated swapping with the failed component in an array in the event of a disk failure. Without hot swap configured, it means the administrator will need to manually place and configure a replacement disk into the array.

No hard disk appointed for other purposes can be used for hot swap. Hot swap disk candidates cannot be repurpose until they are removed from the array configuration.

NAS do not provide protection against virus. It is the job of an antivirus job to detect virus. NAS that allow running of applications in it, may have antivirus packages offered to allow scanning of the array without the intervention of the user or any other systems/hosts. This is a feature, not necessarily available to all NAS solutions.

Electric shortage happens for all peripherals may it be computer related or even storage related. The common approach to using UPS to prevent such event from corrupting the storage system. Synology offers integration with some UPS where the UPS can notify the NAS in the event of a power failure. The NAS can be configured to react by shutdown as soon as possible or shutdown after some time or shutdown when the battery in the UPS is low. The main purpose is to allow proper shutdown of the NAS in the event of a power outrage. That will prevent any form of disk corruption. UPS also prevent against power surge, and spikes.

I have been running my NAS 24by7 for more than 2 years on RAID 6 with 2 level backups. Throughout the lifecycle, I have encountered 1 or 2 blackouts and 2 hard disk failures with NO data lost.

Synology DS-213J

ah! i finally got my 213+ up and running with 2 x 4TB with RAID1

so i coupied all my shows/movies and stuff into the shared folder..

i can see it in my windows/mac computer...

i do have an old media player that i was using with the previous DNS323 nas. the 323 does who up on this media player . i had to go to media browser -> workgroup -> dlink323nas

but now.. my diskstation does show up in the media browser-> workgroup> diskstation. but when i select it.. it says no video or anything..

is there somehting i need to enable? i can browser my nas from mobile with dataplan...


I have the same problem. Using Dlink 320 previously, I could view the share folder on my media player. Recently upgraded to Synology DS-312J NAS but my media player cannot view the files on the share folder anymore. I could only see /Net/Diskstation with the message " the current directory is empty " but surprisingly I could see all the files on my PC.

Any kind soul can help or did I miss out anything?


Thanks !
