Help on home built NAS

December 4, 2012 11:55:45 AM

Hi there,

I am new to this forum and I am seeking advice on on building my home made NAS.

Currently I have an old Pentium III notebook running FreeNAS with a PCMCIA card two external USB disks where my files are stored. Since a few weeks the PCMCIA slot is getting hotter and hotter and sometimes it reboots when temp goes over 102°C... so I am thinking of building my own NAS.

I am not an expert and I've just seen this article http://www.happysysadm.com/2012/12/low-power-nasfile-se... on a self built NAS with a deep explanation of all the steps he took. And it looks so cool. So, experts, can you please give me your opinion on that built.

I don't want to spend more than 300$. I wish I could also have an SSD because everybody says it's damn fast. What do you think?

Thanks in advance!
