Spencer J.
Hello, welcome to newegg!
How can i help you?
Looking for a 2 bay NAS that can stream 1080p
Spencer J.
One moment please.
can the Synology DS216se do that?
Spencer J.
yes it can
what do I get out of the more expensive Synology options like 215j or 216+?
Spencer J.
USB 3.0, more RAM, faster processor
What does the faster ram/processor help with if all I need is raid 1 storage, and 1080p streaming?
Spencer J.
faster transfer speeds and better responsiveness.
what other HDDs should I consider other than WD Red series?
and will the DS216se be able to stream 4k?
Spencer J.
I would go WD red, the only other suitable one is Seagate NAS. but in my opinion Western Digital is more reliable
yes it can
is there noticeable lag when trying to use the DS216se, I am trying to figure out if it would worth it for the dual core in the 215j
Spencer J.
it really depends, on drive size, and how much storage you are using, also how many devices are pulling from the NAS at one time
At highest use I could see 2 people at most streaming.
Spencer J.
yeah, the Dual core would do fine then
err, single.. sorry
k thanks!
Spencer J.
you're welcome.
