Any other DS211j users here?

Anyone other than myself still using DS211j?
Anyone recently move from 211j to one of these and have any feedback?

8 months ago I moved from a four bay version of the x11j series to a DS216j and the increase in performance, especially on big ticket tasks such as Photo Station, was astonishing.

The 411j is now relegated to a backup device to the DS216j, like one of the other responders

DS211J user here, was my first NAS. Only have a 1TB WD Red installed. Use it for Surveillance, surprisingly works pretty well with 2 cameras tied into it. Using surveillance to detect motion, which is working way better than the 2 Foscams detecting motion. Much less false motion detection. It's also used as the target syno in a syno to syno backup with my 415+. Wish there was a way to update the RAM.

Just upgraded DSM from 5.2 to 6.0 last weekend. Everything went smooth. Not surprisingly took longer to update than the 415+.
