    I'm looking for a NAS, and would like to have some help choosing a good one - for example should I buy a NAS or a PC. I'd prefer a cheap price, so used units are okay as well. Seems that QNAP TS-253A is available at least. Here are some my requirements for it:
    • Time Machine backups
    • store photos, and videos (also 4K from iPhone & DJI drones)
    • burn in subtitles on-the-fly preferred or in background, for example during night
      - watch these locally & remotely as 4K
    • support for ownCloud or similar
    The Internet connection is 1/1 G. I don't care about the power consumption as it's included in my rent. For disks I consider WD My Book recertified 6TB which are about ~130 $/pcs. Thank you.
