NAS with RAID - Buffalo or Netgear?
Ok, so NAS with RAID (for my home setup).
I currently have a Buffalo LinkStation Duo with 3x 3TB Drives in, but it seems to run a bit clunky at times. Mainly used as my central backup point for my 2 Macs as TimeMachine, but also has on it my other general backups of bits and bobs (more archived stuff I guess) since it's RAID to give that bit of redundancy.
Anywho, I just wondered, we've just got a rather large Netgear ReadyNAS at school which I quite like the interface of, so I'm considering whether I purchase an empty ReadyNAS 102 (so the equivalent model of my current Buffalo) and just putting drives across. I'm aware I'd have to use a go between drive to make sure things copied over okay with different RAID controllers and such, but I just wondered what peoples thoughts were.
Do you have experience with either? Which would you say is better?
I don't have a massive budget, and the only reason I'm considering it is I've found a new ReadyNAS 102 for £109, so saving £50 or so.
