For a NAS, there’s no point in having SSDs … the biggest problem might be, only 4 standard drive bays. I’m not sure if it would work, but could the DVD disk bays and their connections, be used for two further drives, making a low cost 6 Drive RAID box?
I guess add a faster USB or thunderbolt card, and a faster ethernet … which closes the gap on buying a NAS which is setup. And which would use less power.
What do you guys think?
