I'm looking to buy a cheap NAS. Requirements are:
- 2 bays (or more) and RAID-1 capable
- using standard SATA drives
- must be running a free OS (Linux, BSD, Solaris)
- command line accessible/configurable/tweakable via the
network (without invalidating any hardware warranty)
- Web interface for end-user config
- preferably upgradeable to some community backed firmware (OpenWRT,
NSLU2, FreeNAS, etc)
- not too slow (must be capable of sustaining 20Mbit/s streaming to
It seems Qnap's offerings fulfill most of these requirements, but I'm
curious about experiences of other offerings like Buffalos
TeraStation and LinkStation, NetGear ReadyNAS, Freecom, Zyxel, etc..
