Not sure about the quality and performance but that's dirt cheap even for a 2-bay NAS.

I'm currently paying $99/year for an automated 250GB cloud backup/storage for all my devices. I'd like to get rid of that and use this NAS with 2 x 1TB HDD (Raid 0) instead. I understand the NAS will essentially do the same thing as the cloud service, and the data transfer within my home network will be much faster.

Am I on the right track here? Are there any pros/cons that I need to consider? Over the long haul I'll be spending less and will have the comfort of having the data onsite.

Cheap on Amazon ($63) via one of TD other stores fronts, Circuit City.

I'll have to pass, I've been accumulating parts for a PC based NAS with room to grow beyond 2 discs.

You get what you paid for. There must be a reason why this is so cheap.

Two disc RAID 0 is for throughput because it splits your files roughly in half over 2 discs. It means if one disc fails, you lose everything. If you want to preserve your data against failure with 2 discs, you want to do RAID 1 or a mirror.

I'm a sysadmin so I work with all sorts of NAS and SAN stuff, I don't have one of these (until it gets here, just ordered for myself) but let me interpret the specs for those who might not know what to look for in a NAS.

The most obviously required thing is the gigabit ethernet, as nowadays there's no excuse not to have it. Cheap as chips these days and without it your NAS will be 10x slower.

I kind of don't like the SATA 2 instead of SATA 3 support, but over gigabit you'll never see a difference unless you're me and looking for it, and even then it would be nearly unnoticeable.

The onboard processor is pretty beefy. It should handle everything with aplomb.

The Xen, VMware and all that stuff means it does iSCSI and does it decently. You can mount this as storage and run virtual machines off of it if you want/need to. This is a feature that even if you don't use it means that this is a good little NAS.

The standby and load power consumption numbers are good. Since it's going to be on most/all of the time and in a home just waiting for you to give it files the 2 watt standby means it will stay cool and not bother your power bill more than a desk lamp.

Hope that helps, and TU to OP. Good deal on what the specs say is a good product.

I could not find a single review on it which I found to be rather odd.

You're absolutely right. I would have mirror setup RAID1.

Same here. What computer case do you plan on using?

I have that free after rebate Apex case that I got from TD, but I don't want to use it because it doesn't have a dust filter.
