It has taken me close to 2 years to start feeling somewhat normal again. I'm recovering from an auto accident and back surgery (12-2012) and now I can sit long enough to edit some pictures. I have only attended two classes this year, and I have missed photography so much. I never would have guessed how much this profession gets into your blood. I have missed all of the member who I have communicated with about my D300 (still working like a plow horse) the best camera for me.
I now have need of finding a reliable external hard drive with at least two terabytes of storage and internet connections. If it is expandable all the better. I have read articles about Seagate and heat issues. Western digital has software issues. In the June issue of Popular Photography page 20 there is a small reference to Synology DS713. I know very little of this brand. Has anyone used it? What have you found out about its quality and reliability?
