I'm in the market for a decent NAS unit to replace a computer which until recently has been used mainly for storage.


What I'm after is -


- Accepts SATA drivers in either Fat32 or NTFS

- Can be used as a printer server

- Will accept additional pen drivers of other usb storage

- Raid 0 and 1

- Fast Ethernet (Gigabit)

- FTP Client would be nice


My intentions are use this to stream music, videos and also keep other stuff on it which can be accessed by myself and Mrs Badger.


It has been a while since I last looking at anything like this so I'm after a couple of suggestions.


Any thoughts :)

Not sure how easily you'll find a NAS device with ftp/usb/printer support. Why not just use an old PC? You'd get something suitable off ebay for 50 quid

I hear what you are saying, but I need to reclaim some space in the living room. What I might have to do is move the pc which is currently in the living into the spare room and use that for data storage, however it's not a small thing!
