After reading the forums for a bit, it appears that everyone here loves their Synology, and that it will do everything that I have been looking for, but I have a couple of questions. Main goal: I have a 2 tb itunes library that I need more space for. I have an iMac and 6 ATV3's. I dont really need a NAS, but I need space, and this appears to be the best option. I am looking at the 4 bay model, would it be possible for me connect it directly to my imac via Ethernet cable? I have 2 Tb's of stuff to move and I would assume this would be the fastest method? With 4 3tb disks could you set it up to do both itunes library and time capsule back up? Is there any cheaper option that people can think of to add expandable storage to an Imac? ( I already have a ton of external drives) I have an 2011 iMac so thunderbolt and firewire 800 would be best option.
