    Not bad for the platform but system integration is a more logical solution as 1 drive has <poor> redundancy

    That doesn't matter much, it's just a starter home NAS. The important thing is to keep irreplaceable data backed up, so just plug in a USB HDD and you're sound.

    Re: Synology launches DiskStation DS119j single-bay NAS

    As I stated in another thread, I'm personally going to stay away from Synology for the reasons listed there.

    I have to say though that a single-bay NAS seems pointless to me, as I see it as being a more expensive External Hard Drive and consider NAS' to consist of at least three bays.

    Expensive external HDD that's attached to a network. Seems fairly NASy to me. Albeit with the CPU being rubbish for all but the most basic NAS tasks.

    True, but technically you could simply attach a regular external to many routers and use it in a similarly basic way.

    I know a one-bay still IS a NAS in reality, but I just don't personally think it makes sense to get a NAS unless it's three bays or more.

    Yeah, but then you have to put up with interacting with consumer router software on a much more regular basis. Especially egregious if you need remote access. Truly terrifying.

    True, I guess it depends purely on individual usage cases.

    That doesn't change my personal view of it, but I understand that others have different needs that will mean that it does make sense for them.
