    Please help me find a single 2.5" NAS caddy

    I dont mind that is has no redundancy, I just want to stick a single drive in there and have it running on the network as a share.

    Does it have to be built for a 2.5" drive or would you consider using a 2.5-3.5" adaptor? Because the Zyxel NSA310 is pretty cheap and does well in reviews:

    I was about to suggest the Zyxel - wondering what the Zyxel NAS Devices are like in comparison to QNAP / Synology etc

    Wow at at those prices, it's only for home.

    I was only thinking of a 2.5" as I have some spare and would hope it would make the unit a little smaller over all. I still plan to get my FreeNAS unit up and running but I want to buy a pair of new matching drives and there is always something else that needs the money!

    You won't get much cheaper than the Zyxel...

    buy an R-Pi and a cheap external HDD and make your own NAS?

    I was kinda hoping our friends in Asia would make a caddy with a network port on it cheaply and that it was just me that could not find it.

    Maybe I should just turn on my FreeNAS unit with the 2.5" drive in there for now.

    That's the sort of thing I was thinking of, thanks Ben. Again, slightly more money that I would have hoped but it gives me something to work with.
