Thanks guys. Sorry about the hard-ass rules in my previous posting to try to encourage some kind of voting on the comments, but it seems to kind of have worked. I say "kind of" because it ended up a bit messy regardless, but on the whole there was a pretty clear show of hands for Synology.

So here goes nothing. For the kind of use I have in mind, the most promising model seems to be the DS 411slim. I'll start out with just two drives, but having the option to add another two seemed like a nice bonus. Sure, I'm limiting myself to 2.5" drives, but I did want small.

So I have it ordered. I'll see how this kind of "let's trust the collective wisdom of G+" actually ends up. I hope I won't end up having to hunt you all down and kill you in your sleep.
