    I am thinking about setting up a NAS.

    After doing some research it seems Synology is a pretty solid choice as a brand.

    My use:

    To access files (music, word, photos) from my MBA and G3 phone from my office imac where I will set up the NAS.

    I don't need more than 2-3 TB of space. For my use what model would be best?

    Also, am I correct in assuming you only need HDD in these vs SDD because you are limited by your internet speed so the speed of you disk does not matter as much?

    I think synology is the best choice for a small NAS solution. I think the 214 will be good for your use. It's not necessary an ssd drive, best drives for NAS are western digital red series.
