I'm after a nas. I've never had one before but I think I'm ready to make the plunge. I need one that has the ability for me to access the files on my nas from anywhere. It must also have multi user support, a usb3 port, an Ethernet port and a maximum volume support of 16tb for both internal and external drives as well as raid 1 mirroring. Video streaming support is preferable and it must have support for Linux. My budget is about $200 for the nas only. The brands I'm looking at are Synology or Qnap but if they're out of my price range I will look for cheaper models.

Can anyone recommend a suitable nas?

Damn. You're about $100 away from my usual recommendation.

You can probably find one second hand...


I've never liked 'Branded Nas'. Qith the exception of the super expensive Drobo, they always under perform
