Hello, I've been interested in NASes for a long time, and even though I don't really "need" one, I want to get a basic one to get a taste of them. Here in Turkey a QNap TS-112 costs 240 $, a Synology DS110j 255 $, Zyxel NSA-310 190 $ and a NSA-320 260 $, without disks. Since I have only 1 desktop and 1 laptop, and no media streaming needs, these will be too expensive for just trying out a NAS. Some of my online friends also interested in NASes got the WD MyBook Live and they seemed happy with it. It can be purchased for around 195 $ for the 2 TB version. I plan to use it as a central media storage (including RAW photos taken since 2005), iTunes server, and to occasionally serve its contents over the internet to my iPhone or other computers. In the future it will also serve videos to an LG Smart TV and maybe an iPad. I hope to back it up to a USB drive connected to a Linksys EA3500 router. Do you think the WD Live would be "good enough" for home use, without stability problems, that I won't regret not spending 175 $ more (double the price) and getting a bottom-of-the-line QNap or Synology? Keep in mind I don't need blazing performance or very varied features but would obviously want trouble-free use. Also, I will need a gigabit router for the NAS. I was thinking about the Linksys EA3500, which can host a USB drive. Can the WD Live back itself up to this drive, without keeping a PC open? Thanks in advance for your replies! I hope I'll have fun with these cute little computer-ish boxes.
