Storage option for MBA
I am looking for an external storage option for my MBA, I can't afford a MBpro or an iMac. I currently use a 1TB USB 3.0 WD External HD but when I try and import movies/photos directly to this to save space on my MBA, it crashes. I went into an Apple store and they suggested I use a D-Link DNS 320 NAS that I have at home (currently sitting on a shelf, unused)
I tried to use this but I did some investigating and it seems the firmware on the DNS isn't compatible with snow leopard? I was looking at alternative NAS's now to directly save any data I want (photos, movies, music) on to.
I looked at a time capsule, but a friend said it was slow? I am currently looking at a synology ds212j? would this be a suitable solution? or can anyone recommend anything better?
Thanks in advance

External drives are cheap, Amazon has dozens of them to choose from. I use WD with fine success.
