Hi All, Yes this is yet another NAS thread. I've read a few of them over the past month, new/old and looked at a few solutions: 1. Time Capsule - I've owned a 1TB 1st gen & sold it as I didn't believe MAC filtering was actually working. 2. DLink DNS-323 - Looks like a good solution for simple NAS backup; limited and build quality looks cheap for the price (ext $215-239CAN new) 3. Synology DS210j or DS209 My needs are pretty simple for now and soon going to grow. I've own two Macs - Mac Mini & Al_MB - and currently I'm backing up to a local USB WD MyBook Elite 2TB for the Mini as the family uses it the most. My wife has just got a high-end camera and going to get serious with pictures in RAW format and I figure by end of September our 350GB HDD on the Mini will get full. My Al_uMB will be used for personal surfing, learning XCode and majority for audio production (personal projects). My main requirement for a NAS is to use my existing DLINK DIR-615 & a Synology DS210j or DS209 for both my Mac's. My critical requirements are: Remote Time Machine backup directly to the Synology NAS Remote saving video/audio/pictures from: both Mac's and 2 iPhones (32GB 3GS/16GB IP4) Saving Video/Pictures/Music/etc to an externally connected (USB/eSATA) drive to the Synology. Retrieving that content over the network - Mac Mini (which will be upgraded to iMac on Xmas), MB and the iPhones while at home and also remotely. Sharing Music/Pictures/Video content from externally connected HDD (Synology connected) to the AppleTV 2nd Gen to watch on LCDTV. The part I'm not sure I can do is getting time machine backups working without issue from my Al_uMB remotely - WAN - outside of the house without having a Me.com/Mac.com account. Also in this mix is to somehow get iWeb to distribute a website - for my wife - with content from the Synology solution internal/external HDD (with its content backed up). Is what I'm after possible and which of the Synology's the best for my needs?? Thank you all.
