    Network-Attached Storage Devices

    Do any of you guys/gals own one of these?

    I am looking to get one, but most of the reviews on them are terrible.

    I would like to spend between $200-400 if possible.

    Re: Network-Attached Storage Devices

    Synology are solid. Great web interface with tons of features. There is a model for every need and price.

    The DS212j is phenomenal.

    Do not get Synology. Don't even look at them. Terrible.

    Edit: Oh damn...

    Synology seems to be the biggest maker of them.

    WD has got poor reviews

    There really isn't many choices.

    Re: Network-Attached Storage Devices

    Synology seems to always get high marks from users. I have used drobo as well, but those are a tad limited and more expensive.

    Does your wifi support a NAS device directly attached?

    Haven't checked moving in to an apartment this August. But certainly I could get a wireless router.
