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 ;)

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

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)
