thanks

i presume used 6TB WD Red drives have ~ $120 value? so let's just say $500 in value for just the drives. that means the used NAS is $300.

what's the warranty on this? just 6 months like the rest of WDC's refurb stuff?

these are used with what i presume to be 6 month warranties. i would think that would lower the value to about $120. if i'm wrong, that's fine. i just estimated street value

the WD Easystore 8TB drives with the reds inside has clobbered resale value for used WD Red drives. ebay is flooded with them. i just figured for 6TB it would be around $120'ish

Medic is correct. Many deals have the WD 8TB drives schucked at $160 or less. I think I have seen them as low as $140.

I built a rig doing this myself and am very pleased.

This might be a decent deal for something that is put together. But it's very easy to get the 8TB reds out and build a rig yourself for cheaper and using different NAS brands that are solely known for NAS machines and their software.

i have personally not been a fan of the WD Cloud OS. i think for NAS boxes, it's best to stick with QNAP and Synology

I did the QNAP based off of the various threads and info on this site. Lots of good stuff out there from Medic and others on NAS.

It's really easy to do if you follow the guides on here. Schucking and plugging in the 8TB Reds.

I'm going with the four bay QNAP TS-453TB3 with Thunderbolt 3 support for photography editing. It also has 1 GbE and 10 GbE 👍

Try TerraMaster. I've been pretty pleased with mine. It has Intel processors and 2GB RAM to start. I upgraded mine to 4GB. I have it configured for iSCSI and CIFS. Runs Plex as well.
