good os but poor hardware. so slow. try ds116 for a snappier solution. more ££££ but worth it

Have one of these 1tb version use it to watch movies on my tv excellent and extremely reliable NAS highly recommended

I use mapped drive as it's easier for wife and kids to use. I have a full back up on a removable drive done once a week. And a second removable back up of the really important stuff. E.g documents and photos. Overkill but worst case I nuke computers and diskstation and lose very little

Cannot recommend synology enough. I've had a ds210j for about 6 years and it's superb for all the above reasons. took the time to clean about 2 inches of dust off the fans and it still runs quiet.

Don't have it as a mapped drive in that case, most ransomware will encrypt that as well! Use ftp or make sure you have an offline backup of this too!

Yeah it depends on what you want to do with them. They are ok for the price and for home use but in a corparate/congested area I wouldn't use them. As with anything wireless it depends on the rf environment around them.

Sorry to hijack, but sort of relevant : Are relatively cheap Cisco enterprise WiFi units such as you find on eBay, useable by normal humans at home? Or do they all need some proprietary controller in order to operate? If they can be used reasonably easily, then to me this is the only real competition for Ubiquiti at this price.

(I bought a couple of Cisco 7965s for very cheap off eBay once. Great phones, but really hard work to get operating, running SCCP on PiaF etc. It was fun but I never want to do something like that again, if you know what I mean.)

Yes you can run your own controller on Windows, Linux, Mac OSX - you … Yes you can run your own controller on Windows, Linux, Mac OSX - you don't have to use their cloud. The controller doesn't have to run all the time, you can upgrade/configure the APs and then shut it down. Only stats and guest login pages need the controller to be always available.



Thanks. Is it dual band 2.4/5 GHz?

I've got the UAC Pro, and am delighted with it, absolutely solid, it's as reliable as using a cable, just not always as fast of course. I'd happily recommend it to anyone. I'll never go back to cheap domestic wireless modem/router combos now.

i have a synology...if i buy a microserver can i also have teamspeak on it ......or use as a gameserver ?

Unavailable, please expire.

Jouster

My server comes on on demand, its only for video media and system backups,

What software do you use for that? I thought power consumption was greater doing power rather than letting disks run idle? Or does it depend on number of disks and machine power?
Thanks

I need a new NAS as mine is a bit old now but I am going to take the advice further up and use the HP Microserver I already have (and hardly used) as my next NAS.

You dont need an OS as mentioned before to use a a HP Server as a NAS as there is a very good one for free called FreeNAS. Which can baciaclly boot and run off a USB stick.

a 4 bay nas for £80 ? IS this nas pretty rubbish ? How does it compare to synology or qnap units ? ebuyer had the qnap 231 2 bay for 119, is this better (disregarding 4v2bays ) ?

Thanks for the info!

I'm a bit of a NAS noob, how good would this unit be to use as network storage for all my media and files? I would want to access the drives from a Raspberry Pi running XBMC and also map them to my desktop PC. I read a lot about these cheaper NAS boxes having sub-standard read/write speeds, but how much does this matter in the real world? Are they so slow that I couldn't watch a 1080p movie on the Pi? Or is the problem just for people who want to do frequent large file transfers like full PC back ups?

Thanks again!

you could buy these homeplugs and for the wifi element you could perhaps use this? it extends wifi through powerline-

another option would be if you have a spare router with gigabit port lying around, buy a gigabit switch (£10-15), connect that to one of the homeplugs, then connect your old router to it and configure it as an access point, to provide the wifi element.
