    NAS

    Hi

    Im looking for a NAS for home, i just want it to sit in the corner of my room and i will backup files onto it.

    I don't want to use anything like readynas as i don't want a full machine running.

    Can anyone suggest the best place to get one? Im trying to go as cheap as possible but want an ok make so trying to find the middle.

    Thanks

    Z

    At home we use a Synology Cubestation.
    It has just about everything one would want from a Home NAS.
    The Thecus units we have had seem very well built and reliable but not the cheapest.

    Could do worse than a Mac Mini - I got one off eBay for £200 with a screen.
