A dumb question I know.
There are plenty of buy-me sites but very little info for beginners on the net.(Most sales sites don't even have a specs list)
Wiki has a lot of technical jargon that is beyond me at the moment.Will any NAS setup play movies/music to the TV/audio devices ?
I think a 2x3TB Raid1 1G ethernet is what I need (unless you advise otherwise)
Sound system is "Sonos" WiFi speakers.
TV is Samsung will be ethernet connected to NAS (TV does not have DLNA)
• Have looked at WD My Book Live Duo (2x1TB)
but in raid-1 is effectively 1TB only of movies/music.
My budget is about $500/$600 as max, but cheaper would be OK.
• Have seen "Netgear NAS RND2000 Duo v2 Diskless" for $184
AND "Seagate Barracuda 4TB, ST4000DM000" for $229 each
Would this be overkill. Have read Seagate are better quality ??
This forum list 6 (I assume preferred/better/popular) brands, one of which is Netgear.
• I can also access DLink DNS320L with 2x2TB with Hitachi discs.
But cannot find any blogs/commentaries to help with my decisionIs there anything I should avoid ?
Even links to sites or threads for beginners, would be appreciated.
