    As there seems to be no mention of any hard disk capacity included with the DS115j, the lucky winner will have to provide their own hard disk!

    Never had a NAS before, and this looks like a cool way to start.

    Re: ET3D - it does look a lot nicer than most NAS boxes I've seen.

    Drives you can pick your own, I read somewhere that WD Red are a good option.

    TBH I'd have preferred a multi drive NAS just for redundancy. But having said that, as a someone who has never had a NAS, maybe, the simpler the better.

    Yup, switched all our purchasing from Seagate to WD Reds about a year ago. The seagates are dying like flies, the 200-or-so WD Reds have still to develop a bad sector between them.

    When selecting a device where people are going to dump their files, mostly forget about backups, and have to jump through hoops to install an online backup system like CrashPlan (Instructions for a Synology NAS, may not work for this one http://www.hanselman.com/blog/UPDATED2014HowToSetupCrashPlanCloudBackupOnASynologyNASRunningDSM50.aspx) then give me a RAID setup any day.

    *cough* not speaking from experience or anything, my backup strategy has always been bombproof *cough*
