i thought about that but as i have 2 laptops, xbox 360 and a original xbox with xbmc so having the media stored in one place would be idle. Just been having had a look about £75 is being a little tight.

if youve got any old parts lying around ie mboard, cpu, ram etc then you could prob build one for less than 150. i managed to get some bits together & built a decent NAS server with a 2.6tb RAID5 setup for just shy of 300.

Something like this will do the job http://www.ebuyer.com/product/248760

Supports upto 4tb and has raid. Doesn't come with any hard drives though.

May just be best off getting a networked external hard drive like this http://www.ebuyer.com/product/152055

Depends what you want.

You could get say a D-Link DNS-323 for £60 or a DNS-320 for £70 (newer model) and then throw a £40 1TB or a £55 2TB drive in and still have a bay empty for future upgrades.

Or you could do what I did (to replace my DNS-323), and get a HP Proliant Microserver for £125 then throw in one of the above mentioned drives (it comes with a 250GB drive aswell).

Advantages are the Proliant Microserver is much more powerful and flexible, it can take 5 hard drives instead of two, you can chose the operating system and it is much faster.

Depends on the use, I got the Proliant as I know in the future I won't need to upgrade as I got better to begin with.


Did you even bother reading the thread?

Posted the same item as I've already suggested to the OP then suggest another item way over their budget.

Nobody cares what you own. Serious.
