Hi Richard.

I've used both synology and WD. synology are frankly rubbish. some 
people say the latest release is OK, but I never had much luck with it. 
WD's interface is better, though sometimes you'll find your self 
switching to NVDA as it reads the interface better, especially when 
enabling/disabling features. There are some very minor issues like when 
adding users, NVDA reads the add user button as blank, the same goes for 
delete user. but its doable and I can lend a hand if necessary. The one 
I went for was the WD ext2 Ultra.
