Folks: I got an email from Western Digital (WD) that talks about their upcoming 2- and 4-bay NAS hardware (and some info about their software as well). Their 4-bay (My Cloud EX4100 4-bay NAS) looks interesting. They are selling it with two 4 TB WD NAS drives for $749. Although I am in the process of researching for my own NAS, I do not know enough to be able to compare this with the Synology enclosures. I would appreciate any insight you folks could provide for thinking about this NAS versus the Synology. Thanks, Mike
I am Trying to set up a NAS. I have about 1TB of music and video right now, but will have more in the future. I currently have minimal video content, and don't intend to purchase too much stuff anyway - I am more of a rent and watch once kind of guy. I intend, in the future, to have a dedicated component to act as a media server such as a NAIM, CAPS, Linn etc. For now I will use my MacBook Pro and Pure Music. I only have so much money to spend, and figure it might be better to spend any extra money on the DAC, but also want some sense of future-proofing for the NAS, as it is an expensive investment. So, with that being said: I am looking at a Synology 213+ with 2 2TB WD Green internal drives. I am wondering if should choose something with more processing power--Synology 713+? Or is that overkill for my needs?? Is the 413+ better (would give me more future storage, and more processing power, but costs more than the aforementioned 713+, and not sure I need all that memory (by the time I do, the NAS will probably be outdated anyway) Would my money be perhaps better spent on a better Internal Hard Drive such as WD Red 3TB or Black 4TB?? I know enough to know that I dont know what I need, and seek guidance please. Thanks, in advance.
