NAS Compares Synology DS120j vs DS119j NAS Drive

The New DS120j or the Old DS119j? Which Budget NAS deserves your data?

With Network Attached Storage (NAS) being so popular these days, it is completely understandable that in order for everyone to buy one, some more affordable NAS solutions need to be developed. As much as you want a NAS that can do EVERYTHING, it can be rather disheartening to look at a price tag that is literally in the thousands of pounds and realise it is vastly outside your budget. So the next time to look at what you can afford and that is where the Synology J series comes into play. As already discussed in previous NASCompares articles, the Synology J series is designed to be cost-effective (not cheap – very important). That means that the hardware you are buying, though comparatively lower than those in the bigger Intel-based, Gigabytes of Memory and 10GBe ranges, still arrives with standard specifications that will get smaller, standard NAS tasks done. Until last month, the most cost-effective J series NAS that Synology had available was the £80 DS119j (released in late 2018) and it proved to be very popular indeed, with a price point that meant that it and a 2TB Seagate Ironwolf NAS Hard drive came in at just over £170 ex.VAT. The newly available Synology DS120j NAS is the very latest cost-effective unit to be released and many people are wondering how it compares with the 1 years older model, it is worth an upgrade, should they buy the older NAS if it’s on offer, or should they buy the new model? So let’s compare the DS120j and DS119j from Synology.

Was attending yesterday workshop online. Synology actually said (not in so many words), lets not focus on J or value series... So my advice to anyone out there today getting a 1st nas even for home use, just focus on plus

You're a mindreader :)

As soon as I tried to migrate mail services from a limping 2006 Core Duo Mac Mini to DS215j it became clear that I needed something more like the Mac Mini: DS218+ with upgradeable RAM met my modest requirements. It's doing a lot more than the Mac Mini and doing it easily too.
