not sure i have a few ive been using for a long time.. and if the controller went out why didn't you just plug it in a new case???

im just sick of having 5 externals on my desk and can't really slap more drives in my imac

soooo this will have to do, my music/movie collection is getting very large and id much rather use the small drives for backups.

I've had mostly good experiences with Lacie drives. When I was working at Perot we bought about a dozen of the 1TB models and several 500GB ones. We used to take them all over the country for datacenter migration purposes. We've had a few of them dropped (one down a flight of stairs) but we've only had one fail and that one wasn't the dropped one.

I've got a 250GB drive on my desk that has served me faithfully for a while. I'm planning to get a 1TB model but with the Gigabit NIC so I can use it as a high speed NAS.

I don't see the lure, just build a file server? If I upgraded my drives, I could easily have 4TB of space for the same price.

I guess I would never really want to take my fileserver with me anywhere, if I do, all i have to do is unplug the network cable and power since its headless.

I never imagined filling up my 500gig drive but it's pretty close. With something like this I could ditch my desktop all together and stick with a laptop and docking station.

Hey Abecx,

If I were to build a NAS what would you recommend for a motherboard and processor? It wouldn't really need that much power, would it. I would want to build it as a RAID5 array with up to 1TB.

I'm going to build up a VMware ESX server for my personal use and I want to run the VMs on a NAS so I can configure it for VMotion and other ESX functions.

Sgt Beavis,
I know you aimed this at Abecx, but I'd do what I do sometimes and steal other people's ideas.

http://www.antonline.com/buy-new-cus...ro-servers.htm

www.supermicro.com

Top is a reseller of the bottom. Find the setup you like and use whatever they use. They sell plenty of RAID based (storage) servers that would fit your bill. (remember to get scsi if you can)

Now, typically I'd keep it to myself that I have a "Supermicro" server. Right up until the other day when we got MARS in from Cisco...

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6241/index.html

....Guess what hardware they use? We also use to resell Supermicro stuff. My point is, they'd be a good baseline for getting your own parts or just ordering from them if you wanted.

Take care,

My '03 Sold.

They raised the price on the 1TB drive. It was $341 with a 20% discount, then the discount went away so it was $370. Then they brought the discount back, bringing it back to $341 (this was on the 3rd that I saw it) ... I should've bought it then, but decided to wait until after the 4th... I just checked it today, still a 20% discount, but now all of the sudden it's $368.

Booo!

Now, $30 isn't that big of a deal, but I'm looking for an excuse to not get one yet, and the artificial price hike to negate the 20% discount is a pretty damn good way to get me to say "fuck you!"

I'll eventually get one, because I'm running pretty slim on storage as it is. Definitely could use a boost, but I'm about to get my 300gig external formatted to fat32 so I can use it in OSX. Should be good for a little while at least. I've spent the last few days doing the data shuffle trying to get all the data on it backed up to other drives so I can safely format it.
