Getting ready to build my new home PC(have all the parts but just need the time t build it) and that got me started thinking about my next purchase/move for my home network. I need a 3 - 4 TB home network storage solution that I can use for the sever, PC's, laptops, Xbox 360 and smartphones(maybe not smartphone but everything for sure).
That got me looking on Newegg and from what I see the affordable "Personal Network Cloud Storage" that I found on Newegg (and there isn't that much to choose from) all have sever problems with the software, overheating, additional prices for accounts etc..
The feedback for the Western Digital is only 2 stars and the same with the Seagate products. Both seem to really have bad software issues with the seagate being so bad I wouldn't even consider buying it. The one that I did see that I'm interested in ended up costing over two grand($2,499.00), which IMO is ludicrous.
So then I thought about these forums and all the help I've received with my various issues over the years and here I am.
What would be my best bet to use for a home network storage/backup system?
New PC has a 2TB HD and a 128GB SSD, old PC has 1 2 TB HDD and 3 500GB HDD's, laptops (3) have about 1.5TB all together and the Xbox 360 has a 120GB HDD.
I'd like to keep the price as close to $200.00 US as possible.
