Well the time has come where my family needs storage. Currently we use 2 external drives. One old ass 500gb my book(3.5 HDD) for backup up our laptops and a 1tb(2.5 HDD) for media storage. This works but isn't ideal as I'd like to be able to access the media drive from any of our devices and would like to be able to backup files from laptop with out digging out the drive, fighting behind the couch to plug it in ect ect. Here is where my confusion comes in. Research says a NAS will handle media aspects, unknown if it will handle wireless file back up, unknown how to figure out hooking it up to the TV for media access. Research also says get an older rack mount server, but clueless on any aspect of rack mount servers. If NAS box is the best option for our needs any recommendations on one. Either one like a WD my cloud pre done one or a box that HDDs can be added to. Right now we max out at about 1.5-2tb of shit and would like to go with 6 or 8tb storage (maybe with an option of adding.more later as well). Edit. In a perfect world I'd like to stick in the sub $250 price range.
