About 2 months ago I got a tvs 471 for £300 yes £300 from the same bt shop and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve put in a 250 ssd for cache and 16GB ram and it’s running sweetly.
I run the 253 with 8g ram and it’s a good machine.
My phone automatically uploads photos and videos while at home then it syncs them to OneDrive.
It also has a rather good karaoke function which uses YouTube videos.
It also can run a virtual pc but you would really need more than 4gig to run it. I think I assigned 2gig for a windows 10 install and it isn’t very quick.

Your phone would do that with OneDrive anyway

That is a valid point. I forgot to mention that it also have a shared drive on the NAS and other media that I want stored locally but also backed up online.
I never get why people choose the option of storing their own data when cloud storage is so cheap.

Plus, if the box dies or gets stolen you lose everything (unless you backup to the cloud, in which case you may as well bypass local storage). You wouldn’t get that with Dropbox, and it’s only £7.99 a month

Surely the whole point of the NAS is RAID meaning if 'The box dies' you just pop the disks in a new box!

7.99 gets you 1tb on Dropbox, that’s a vast difference to the potential on a NAS. I use for media, photos, surveillance, Home Assistant...it obviously isn’t for you so walk on by

Yes, i suppose you need more than 1tb if you intend to store hundreds of pirate movies for Plex streaming

We do a lot of video work. Better to have a central place where masters can sit, which also back up to cloud.
Been looking for a NAS for a while, cheers OP

Not everyone wants to share their personal things with corporations. Have you seen Google's or Microsoft's privacy policy? Well to summarise there is none.
Thanks for sharing, Good find.. nice machine, a bit more ram would make it wonderful.

Lol you really have no idea do you, google are currently embroiled in a legal case for iPhone users after they circumvented privacy settings to track data on safari, their apps constantly monitor your whereabouts, they’ve just admitted a ‘glitch’ in ‘some’ of their google home units where they listened all the time, the list is endless, just google it! They know everything about you, they track everything they possible can, they sniff any data possible, there are no tin hats needed here

Erm, no.
The first action that happens when you insert a disc into a NAS drive is it formats it. At least with every drive I've inserted that has happened.

You were right!

However if you have a 2 bay NAS you could feed in one disk and provision it then copy data over USB from the other and then add that in to mirror.

It all depends on what you want to keep, when your data is in the cloud there is always having fears or data mining by the provider I could list another hundred seasons why to keep hold of your data.
