    NAS talk ok?

    I've got a Synology DS210j with two 640GB WD Blue drives. Very nice and quite network setup. Download/Upload speeds are ok but really great for UPnP media.

    Guess I'm not a whore, but I did buy a NAS w/o any hard drives ;)



    **Server Specs**
    Case~small white thingy
    Total storage amount~1.2TB
    Raid: Yes~RAID0
    OS~Synology Disk Station Web Managment
    Reason for the amount:
    Backups
    download box
    UPnP media
    Mail box
    storage outside my pc :)

    raid 5 is a very bad idea with that much storage. You really want to look at raid 50,60 for that much storage for data loss

    nice rig. Added

    I don't see raid as a backup
    I plan to backup most of the data i would prefer to not lose on to some 2TB drives and keep them out of the storage server(i have a fireproof safe)
