I should never run out of disk space at home again... - MtnVwPilot

Jan. 9th, 2008 01:48 pm I should never run out of disk space at home again...

Over on my professional blog, I just posted a mini-review of the NetGear ReadyNAS NV+ storage server for homes and small offices. For about $1000, I got .5 TB (500 GB) of easy-to-manage RAID-backed storage; for about $1500, I could have gotten 1.5 TB, but I don't need that much space right now. However, when I inevitably need more room at some future date, I'll be able to add more capacity in the form of bigger, cheaper disks; the thing has room for up to 4 drives total (I'm currently using 2), plus provisions for upgrading old, small drives with new, big drives.

Besides being a fileserver, the thing also has a built-in iTunes server, so if you put all your MP3s on it, you can easily share your music with other computers on your LAN via iTunes.
