Same here +Chris Bullard +Steven King
I will upgrade mine sometime late this year. Will get one that is like coming out now as i did with my Disk station. I do Know QNAP AND Synology seem to be top.
I Tried a netgear and WD Nas both went back wd 1 hour after i got it. the netgear two days after 20 tech calls with netgear due to Lack of HYBRID Drive options .
My Disk Station by +Synology
is in a Network interface box i built into the hallway in our Basement next to Cable modem Router . Voip phone box and Managed SMC Network hub.
IT Just works. its always Available no matter where in the world i am. My Only big issue is There Documentation SUCKS..Lots of support on the internet and there Forums. But Documentation and online from box support is Outdated , The issue with this is they call some things Different then other boxes do. So if you Do NOT Know networking you will be Totally lost.. TOOK ME OVER a week to setup my home D. N S To Work right with my Domain.
Anyway Keep us posted ..
