Replacement for QNAP TS-219P II

We use currently an old QNAP TS-219P II and a disk would need to be replaced. Now, the device reached its EOL and replacment would make sense. Used by 5 people in 4 different houses for Sync (Qsync) and backup only. Other features tried out but not really used. Also, no photo or streaming is used.
Goal: 2 bay, 4 TB for sync and backup. Low maintenance needed (Synology or QNAP seem to fit here).

I read about security concerns when it comes to QNAP and was tending towards the Synology DS220j or DS220+. I would say DS220+ would be the closer replacement of the QNAP, but I was wondering if the DS220j would not be sufficient for our simple need of sync and backup with low speed needed? Or maybe another QNAP? I see that spending more money can make sense but in the last 11 years we did NOT use any of the features expext sync and bckup. As long as security is same I would save that difference.
best and thank you,
Both Synology and QNAP offer reliable and user-friendly NAS devices that are suitable for your needs of sync and backup. However, if security is a concern, it might be a good idea to go with Synology, as there have been some security issues reported with QNAP devices in the past.

In terms of which model to choose, the DS220j is a more basic model with lower hardware specs than the DS220+. The DS220+ is a more powerful device with a faster processor, more RAM, and more advanced features. However, for your simple needs of sync and backup, the DS220j should be sufficient.

The DS220j has a 2-core processor and 512MB of RAM, while the DS220+ has a 2-core processor and 2GB of RAM. Both devices support up to 2 hard drives, and can be set up in a RAID configuration for data redundancy. The DS220+ does have some additional features such as hardware encryption and support for virtualization, but these are likely not needed for your use case.

If you don't require the additional features of the DS220+, the DS220j should be a suitable replacement for your QNAP device. It is also worth considering the DS218j, which is a slightly older model that is still widely available and may be cheaper than the DS220j. The DS218j has similar hardware specs to the DS220j and should be sufficient for your needs as well.

Ultimately, the choice between Synology and QNAP will come down to personal preference and specific needs. However, if security is a concern, it may be safer to go with Synology.
