- Best NAS drive?
I have no experience of other NAS but I bought a linksys media hub a while back becaues it was heaviy discounted. It supports DNLA, Windows filesharing, ftp, and remote access (although I dunno why that’s not just port forwrding but ok).
All configurable, has a nice web interface to browse stuff as well as the above. I only got it for backups, so I turned the rest of it off 🙂
Runs linux and I think it could be customised if need be.Posted 7 years agoMarkieMember
NetGear ReadyNAS here, an Ultra 2+.
Great for what I want (media streaming to Squeezebox stuff and a smart tv, shared storage of a few files, local backup).
The things about it that annoy me are that it’s not indexable by Windows 7 (I have to use an old version of Google computer search) and I cant add folders on it to my Win 7 Libraries. Minor for sure – but still annoying!Posted 7 years agoexilegeordieMember
Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ here – not the most lightning quick box in the world, even after upgrading the memory from 256M to 1GB. However, it has good support for Logitech Media Server (we have one receiver and a radio which we stream music to). I can also play films saved there on through the PS3 without any lag whatsoever.
If I were buying now, I think I’d go Synology purely from what’s supported on that platform.Posted 7 years ago
