Hi there - I don't know much about NAS drives, but Ive been having a look around and seen this one... click here was wondering if anybody had any other suggestions?

I want to backup my macbook book through time machine, and also store my music and videos on it

many thanks for any advice! Nick

As NAS Drives are usually designed to take your Hard Drive of choice. The first thing to do is to consider what volume you will be needing it to store over the next few years, and possibly whether you wish to set it up to act as its own backup with 2 Hard Drives installed.

Hi, i haven't really thought about attaching extra hard drives to it. The one I posted has 2tb which should cover me for the next few years I should think. Ive seen much more expensive NAS drives that I'm assuming are aimed more at small business rather than 1 home user.

I really don't want to spend any more than £100 though (which hopefully should limit my choice)
