ReadyNAS NV+

Today, I finally made the decision on my NAS of choice: The ReadyNAS NV+.   NewEgg has it now for close to the lowest price I could find. I did see it for about $5 less elsewhere, but I’ve had positive experiences with NewEgg each time I’ve purchased from them in the past, so why change now, especially for just a few dollars on a high-end item like this.

To go along with my Diskless NV+, I picked up two 500 GB Seagate drives. This costs a bit more than buying three 250 GB drives (which would net the same capacity in the NV+ as my pair of mirrored 500 GB drives), but I felt the extra few dollars was an investment. I would hate to need more space in 6 months and my main option would be to just buy one more 250 GB drive. If I then needed more, I’d have to start replacing drives. I feel comfortable that 500 GB will hold me for the next 6 months or so, at least. The possibility of adding two more 500 GB drives should have me covered, storage wise, for the next several years to come.

I’ll be sure to post my experiences after it arrives.
