Main difference between DS212j and DS212?

Postby nikonni » Thu Nov 10, 2011 5:45 pm

Hi there, sorry if this has been asked before but I want to know what the big difference between the two of them are. I know one has a slower CPU and memory and the DS212J doesn't have USB3 etc but software wise do they do the same thing as the main reason I need one is for the 24/7 download server, I take it since the DS212 is the better model is also does this?

The software is the same. With Synology you basically get the same software features whether you buy a basic model or top of the line. So the only difference between DS212J and DS212 is hardware.
If you only plan on using the NAS for storage and downloading the DS212J will probably suffice although if you're going to have a lot of concurrent downloads, the extra memory in the DS212 might come in handy.
