  1. This project is actually two years old, but despite the aging SATA standard, still current as an idea. I invite you to my shop for a short film of the "Do it yourself" series.
  2. Good morning everyone! I have currently got a few TB of data sitting on my home desktop with little in the way of backups, redundancy or availability. I am looking at purchasing a NAS to fix all of the above. The data is a mixture of Office documents, pictures, music, videos, and other random file data. Some questions on NAS and drive selection: From a brief look around the various reviews and manufacturer sites, it seems the DS215+ would be a good choice of NAS. Would anyone have any other recommendations (maybe the DS713+ or something QNAP)? Does SHR (Synology Hybrid Raid) allow the creation of volumes on a NAS with different RAID protection levels? Some of the data on the NAS will need drive redundancy, however other data is not so critical and I am more than happy to store them with no protection. With regards to drives, I am looking at WD Reds (4-5TB), however would anyone consider WD Red Pros worthwhile for the above setup? My wireless router only has a single GB port, with multiple 100mb ports. Would connecting the NAS to two 100mb ports have much effect on performance? Thanks in advance for any assistance with these questions!
