Re: My Network Setup

Are Synology NAS fast and responsive? How about energy efficiency?
What model do you use or recommend for a home user?

I quickly looked on their site and I was impressed by their selection. I will have to research this further

The two big issues I find with home use of a NAS are simple things if your not careful. Number one is using the NAS with DHCP, as some NAS's have issues with renewing DHCP leases for whatever reason. The second has to do with name resolution, which can be tricky on some of the more complex/segmented networks. If you go to static map your drives, make sure you use the IP rather than device name. iSCSI solves some of the resolution problems, but is more complex than using SMB/Windows File Sharing.
