I've been hunting around for a NAS server and these are highly rated. Better performance, quality and features than the equivalent Netgear stuff. This is the best price I've found using a quidco voucher code QUIDCO686 for £10 off, runs out tomorrow though! (18th july ).

£145.99 delivered, plus 3% quidco.

Note this is a bare server so you will have to add your own hard drives (up to 2 x 2Gb). I suggest getting the Samsung 2 x 1Gb HD103SJ drives from Scan for £84.59 (deal of the day) as these have been tested by Synology - check the Synology website for recommended compatible drives!

Great if you want to share a few files with family and friends or even in a small business environment this could work. However, only supports 4TB total storage and CPU and RAM leave something to be desired... especially if you need to support a large number of users and copious amounts of data. However, I doubt this would be a power hog at any rate.

A custom built job would be wiser in the long-run assuming you have the space for a mid or full ATX tower and don't mind paying slightly more for the electricity.

How much would it cost to build a cheap cost effective custom server? I have quite a few old parts kicking about, athlon processor, 1GB SDRAM, mobo, optical drive, number of IDE HDs of different sizes. My concern is one, power consumption (leaving it on all the time), especially as old IDE drives are not green, 2. what OS? etc

Any links to DIY media servers that you recommend would be appreciated.

Thanks

This is probably a curve ball....how about a cheapo notebook? There small, compact, less power consumption (mobile processors = low TDP) tend to be quieter than their bigger counterparts, automatic energy saving settings to spin down drives when idle, upgradeable blah blah etc etc

Yes/No??

i love my 209 great with BT and my ps3

go for a 209 if this is underpowered for your needs.

Only warning i would give is my synology NAS doesnt work well with my phillips streaming stereo. I have to wake the NAS with my media player first or the stereo cant find the server.

A small Ion based system (net-top) would be a better idea. You could install the micro atx mobo into a bigger case and add some hard drives. Use a linux based OS designed for NAS.
