Slight NAS Expansion

I have been looking at my Infrant Ready NAS NV and it had 903 GB available from the 2 TB that I installed. If I installed two more 1 TB drives then 3.1 TB would be available and the rest would be for redundancy. I have began filling it up very quickly and I am turning it into my media storage in the basement, everything will be streaming from it.

I strolled by Hawally and I got myself a pair of 1 TB drives for 88 KD each this time. It was turning into an entertaining run, but getting those two drives was enough for me. I came back ready to install, but I was running a file synchronization program so that I have everything I want on it before I start adding space, that took about 4.5 hours to finish. Adding a drive takes about 6 hours to synchronize with the NAS, so a total of 12 hours for drives. Then I will have ample space, and I keep thinking what can I fill it up with and all four hard drive spots in the NAS are filled.

  3. Z : where did you buy the NAS from? how much?

  4. mocman: no prob

    Rayboy: From amazon.com, its goes for $899 without the drives. This one is called Infrant Ready NAS NV, the newer one is called Infrant Ready NAS NV+. It is the best one with this type of enclosure, most of the Prosumer NAS aren’t that good, except for this one and the Drobo.

  5. hmm .. i was checking with the Local Dealer .. its 290 KD here. Let me check on the offers on amazon now

  6. rayboy: thats a little expensive, you are better off getting it online.
