Recommend me a NAS

Networking - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
Hey guys,

here is the deal: I have been using an Apple Time Capsule as both my Wireless Router and NAS. I recently switched to a new Router with built-in VDSL modem, as I wanted more configurability than what the Apple Time Capsule provides me with. Currently I still have the Time Capsule connected via LAN for it's NAS function but sooner then later I want to get an entire dedicated NAS.

There are only two things I actually do with the Time Capsule:

- Backup of my 13" rMBP

- Saving my iTunes library

Now I still have my gaming PC connected to the NAS, as I do all the heavy lifting (Blu-Ray encode) on that machine. An added bonus would be a Dropbox like feature because I share quite a lot of files with friends for university, but if it would mean a much bigger price tag, I'd pass.

I think a 4 bay NAS should be good, because currently I use a 3 TB Time Capsuel, so add another 3 TB so that I have more space and double that for RAID 5 or whatever it is. I've been eying the Synology NAS but quite frankly I have no clue and I usually tend to spend more than what I actually need, so I'm here for some advice ;-)
