We need a NAS ! Keeping stuff on visible external hard drives is crap when people break in. Plan on putting a Network attached storage device under the floorboards that every computer in the house can access. Is this something you guys use? If so any suggestions?

Make sure “under the floor boards” is properly ventilated and kept clean.

Synology has some good NAS units. Buffalo NAS units are OK.

Actually I was just looking into this. I’ve been having some serious problems with my data lately. And now, after I got a new external HDD , the iMac (latest model, highest configuration) decided to make problems http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6fWgLa8jeA&feature=plcp.

I RECOMMEND THIS :

http://www.synology.com/products/product.php?product_name=DS413j&lang=uk#p_submenu

SYNOLOGY DS413j is the way to go. ;)

This NAS was just released days ago, very competitive pricing, and from my research – in the past two months – I highly recommend it. I was undecided if I should go with a Time Capsule instead, but unless they release a major update – holding up to 16GB of data that can be set in RAID 5 , I don’t see any chance of buying one. That, or Apple breaking the way 3rd party NAS hardware works! :)

It’s the best out there it seems.
