Hi guys, I really need a NAS. (As with everything these days), there's so many available it's an absolute bloody minefield for choosing a decent one that'll be fully compatible for my needs. Will add some further information if it helps. I need one that will definitely keep up with streaming large 4K files over 1GB LAN, & importantly one that will definitely allow KODI direct access from the Neo U9-H over the LAN with the ABSOLUTE minimum of fuss!! (I am reasonably tech savvy but I'm certainly not a super geek lol ). If anyone has any recommendations based on the above & my budget, & hardware/devices below it would be very much appreciated . (I don't have any Apple products/devices at all & I don't intend on purchasing any which will hopefully simplify things a little. I will mainly need reliable compatability for both Windows & Android, (& possibly a Linux OS PC again in the future)). I don't really need remote WAN/internet access to the NAS (if it's available so be it), just the capability for fast & reliable LAN access. I also won't need comprehensive simultaneous multi user/multi device capabilities, at most I may have 2 or 3 devices reading/writing data at any time. The heaviest use will still be from the U9-H if any of that helps!!??!?!!? (I don't really want to involve Plex either. Admittedly, I've never used it but from my limited knowledge the U9-H & KODI (& my PC's) can play my rips perfectly well over my LAN at their full quality without Plex complicating things, & possibly limiting quality with unrequired transcoding, etc. I won't be playing any large files on my mobile devices either, they're mainly used for general surfing, emails, & light office productivity). With that said. Budget - Ideally, no more than £400, (for the NAS itself, I'll factor in the cost of the HDD's seperately). My current hardware.... TV - Panasonic 50" EX750B series. (I don't use its native media player, just the native 4K Netflix/Prime Video apps). AVR - Sony STR-DN1080. (Despite the model number, it fully supports 4K, HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2). I'd like this AVR to be able to stream music over ethernet or wirelessly from the NAS. HTPC/Media Hub - Minix Neo U9-H . Mainly using KODI for playback of my Blu-Ray/DVD rips & other locally stored visual media. (Will possibly add a Neo N42C-4 in the future too). Satellite/Cable - (UK) Sky+ HD box. (Hopefully soon to upgrade to Sky Q). Gaming console - XBox One X. (I do use it occasionally as a DVD/Blu-Ray player, otherwise it's just used for gaming). PC's - 1 x custom desktop rig running Windows, (although not used much these days due to my circumstances). 3 x Windows laptops, the plan being to get that back down to 1 . Mobile devices - Android phone (6.0.1), & 2 x Android tablets (one is 6.0.1 & the other 7.0). An older Kindle Fire HD primarily used for reading. Modem/Router - ASUS DSL-AC68U. Current storage - 3 x 8TB external HDD's, some smaller external HDD's, & a miriad of various USB flash drives, CF/SD/Micro SD cards, etc. (Obviously, various other levels of storage within the networked PC's). Ideally, I really want to centralise all of the data from everything for easy access. Think that covers it if it's all of any use lol . Apologies for the lengthy post, thought it would be better to provide extra details to home in on the ideal options. Thanks for taking the time to read it . Kind regards, Wolfy.
