I am looking to install a new, high capacity storage device that I can use for my home network. I am looking for a total of at least 2 tb of space with redundancy (RAID 1), and expandability.

Will I be better off building a home server, or simply buying a pre-built NAS?

Thanks for your help

A home server implies a server OS, which I don't think you intend. What is it needed for? Super fast or just because? And what's the budget?

It doesn't have to be super fast- just high capacity and visible on my network. Maybe a $300-600 budget.

Thanks for the suggestions- I really don't have room in any of my pc's so I think I will go for the NAS enclosure route.

Do you have any recommendations for cheaper enclosures? $500 is a little steep. Could I get away with one that is around $300?

Of course you can, but, you get what you pay for, ya know...

hopefully someone else can suggest a less expensive one...

Is there a way to move this thread into the NAS section?
