Buying an NAS
Posted 22 March 2012 - 07:50 PM
I'm thinking of buying that to put on the network and access through ps3/macs/windows laptop It's the cheapest 2 bay NAS I could find. Does anyone know if that brand is any good? At the moment I'm thinking of putting 2x1tb in JBOD, but I might upgrade to 2x2tb in the future. Also what is the USB for?

I have a netgear readynas and love it. It doesn't have the best transfer rate but it more than does the trick. Aside from some of the fun bells and whistles ,like streaming right from my nas through xbox, having the security of data redundancy helps me sleep at night.

Of course there are more complex NAS like 4 bays, hot swap, raid, remote management, disk size quota, and all other features you have have never heard off.

But they are well worth it. My old 2bay is hot swap with RAID and all that.
Since they have been around for a few years now there is a ton of software written for them too. If you are into torrents you could do all your torrent stuff via your NAS, thus not having to use any of your main PCs resources. Oh and I guess if you were to torrent with your NAS you could just watch all those free ,public domain movies, you download through your console the second they finish downloading.
