ReadyNAS + 4x 1TB drive at RAID 5... what do you get? LOTSASPACE!

The only problem is once you buy one you really need a 2nd to back it up. That's a *lot* of valuable data to lose!

Makes my Freecom 250GB ext HDD seems sooo small!

Well... if using with a NAS at RAID-5, you won't have much to worry... at least it is relatively easy to rebuild the drive using parity.

Just ordered a 6 port RAID-50 controller for a customer (with puny 400GB drives).

1x (2 x (3 x 1TB as RAID-5) as RAID-0) = a pretty nice fast big desktop RAID 50 setup...
