Synology DS212J vs. DS216J

Unread post by wburnham » Wed May 31, 2017 8:42 pm

Hello. I currently have the Synology DS212J and am curious if ht is worth the upgrade to the more current DS216J

What are the advantages? Can you run plex media server on the DS216J?

Also, if I do upgrade, can I just pop my drive into the DS216J and it work...or do I have to reconfigure?
