|Vash63||That's like asking if you can browse the internet without a web browser.|

|darthmongo||Absolutely. You just create an account on the server, tell the system which apps you want the account to have access to (in this case, FTP), set the path on the volume where they have access to, and voila! They will indeed need an FTP client.|

I have been eyeing one of these for a while now for personal use, but atually have a business need for it now. Can the FTP function be use where i create a login for a client and the client can login and upload file to me? How easy is that? will they need a FTP client to upload file to me? Some of my client are not very good with computer and i dont trust email. Thank you

Now I can download media, stream media, save media and important files, and have redundancy with RAID1, while draining relatively little power. I also have it running as an FTP server so I can access my files from anywhere, and if you open the right ports, you should be able to use it as a internet SAMBA share.
Just my experience with my first NAS, and it seems a lot of them have similarly useful features.

|phlegmer||Hmm, is it just me or is free shipping no longer there? It shows $11.80 shipping for me.|

Synology = Software advantage, Ease-of-use
DIY NAS = Learning Curve, Cheap, Future proof

you're buying a nas appliance and hard drives that are hundreds of dollars and you are worried over saving $20 a year?

|ntyonline||The price went up about $15. Should pull the trigger earlier.|

|lifexpert||I have synology 2bay enclosure and loved it. But 2 bay is not going to fit my system and I found myself keep computer running 24/7, thus, I am better off build a PC system. Right now, I have a HTPC with 12 Disks, in total 24TB system. It's in the basement and my smart TV can reach it any time it wants.|

Also, an advantage of the DIY option is low cost future expansions. I don't need a whole new box if I need more capacity. I can get an expansion card or use an eSATA external enclosure.

i am debating between this and DS213. For streaming video to PS3 purpose, will the processor and FPS make any significant different?
Anyone had any recommendation?
