    Good Morning,

    I am looking for a pre-built NAS. Here is my ideal specification:
    • 2 Bay NAS
    • Decent Make
    • Capable of streaming movies to PS3 or 360
    • Store capacity of around 4 TB - over the 2 bays
    • Budget - £150.

    Could anyone recommend a good pre-built NAS? I have read the Bit Tech reviews - I very foolishly threw out my Custom PC edition with the NAS review's. I don't need anything fancy like the ability to torrent... There are a few on eBuyer that I found - but they all seem to have limitations.

    Many Thanks,
    J

    Hey there!

    There have been a few NAS threads over the last few days and you might want to take a quick look at these two:
    Home Server Project Help
    NAS Recommendations Wanted

    In essence, you should check out Synology and QNAP servers.

    I have a 2 bay Synology which I have been thrilled with (much better than the Buffalo Linkstations I've used before) and comes in at your budget (though without disks).
    It'll do everything you want and more!

    I know the CPC review you are referring to - the Synology DS210j came out top for price/performance at the time (which is why I bought one! :D)

    HTH,
    Dan
