Hardware Recommendations for adding hard drives

Postby luvmnky2 » Tue Sep 13, 2011 12:11 pm

So I've maxed out all the hard drive bays my rig will hold (6), so to add more space I suppose I need to add some kind of external NAS box. I have zero experience using these. Does anyone have such a setup, and if so, can you recommend what hardware to use and how to tie it into the Amahi/Greyhole system?

if you want something cheap and using grey hole anyway, i would use one of the mediasonic bay's they have 4 bay and 8 bay options with usb 3.0 or esata, no raid or jabob option, and can be had for as little as $100, and each drive inside the bay will show up as a seporate drive, if using esata your esata port needs to support port replicator
