Synology DS119J vs DS218J

Synology DS119J vs DS218J

I’m new to NAS, wanting mainly to backup 2 users over WIFI. Is the processing better on the 119 vs 218? What’s a better value for money? 119 is about $100 USD, the 218 is on sale for $135USD on Amazon.

Ds119 is a very slow model. If the price difference is so tiny definitely get a ds218j. It is capable of many more things in comparison. Thing like one drive failure protection, faster photo organizing and even a tiny bit of video transcoding for remote streaming. It is not the best NAS but for so small price difference it is just a better value for your money.
