Aaaaaahhh... Finally:\n\n\n\nAs the slogan goes "Your Own Cloud Starts Here". This is one of my long term dreams, a NAS to share media files with all in the household. It's just TOO good. So far there's an old SSD of only 250GB inside just for a test drive and a TB hooked via USB to see how it all works. USB is a HDD and still it works wonders. Few users running HD and HiRes files no lag, no stutter.\n\nLike a charm!\n\nI am completely ignorant of NAS systems!\nDo you use it mainly for media playback?\nSo other than the HDD, is it all you need to be able to access files (including media)? \nFor media playback is it stand alone or does it take software like Plex to run it?\nCan you make playlists?\nCan it shuffle within playlists?\nI assume the max capacity is something extreme like 15 TB?\nHave you used it as a source for common music throughout the home?\nIf so, how do you get the timing of all players to sync (or is it close enough)?
