My current storage solution is just a 1TB Seagate External USB hard drive. A NAS would be awesome, as I can share all my data over the network!

Here "The Server", runs openSUSE, has er about 10TB of storage, mythTV backend (terrestrial and satellite tuners), xbmc mysql database, Crashplan backup to cloud and from friends, Squeezebox server, something to do with sabnzbd... If I won I'd move my photos over to it for a bit extra safety.

My current storage solution is an Airport Extreme, with an external USB 2.0 HDD plugged in...
It is painfully slow, and Time Machine isn't doing what I need really, it's just not 100% stable.
I'd like to test a USB hub on it... but ultimately, a proper NAS is what I'd love in our household.

Currently use this old pentium as a torrent/plex box for my media.

This NAS would be great, more reliable and less power usage.

I am currently using my gaming PC with 2x3TB HDDs to store Movies,Tv, Music, for in home streaming. It is not very power friendly vs a NAS as I have to leave my PC on alot where as it probaly wouldnt need to be on all the time if I had a NAS. I keep meaning to get one but always forget :)

My current* solution is a couple of external 2TB drives connected to an RT-N16. Both drives are already full, and it's terribly slow at I/O: only a couple of MB/s writing and a tad quicker reading (but not quick enough for most of the 1080p video that we have)... and it gets worse if there's any other network activity.

*Not really, since it's still unplugged since we moved.

I have a Raspberry Pi with Raspbmc with 3 external hard drives connected with 2 USB powered Hubs. I turn it on when I want to use my stored media. 

I would use the NAS to store all my media and leave it running 24/7

I currently use an old laptop running Ubuntu Server 14.04 for a torrent/media sharing.  It only has a 160GB hard drive so I copy old files to an external WD usb hard drive.

The screen bezels were falling off so a bit of duct tape did the trick.

I would love a NAS.  I currently have nothing and consider myself quite at risk and would like to improve my storage and my backup

I currently use a WD Mybooklive 2tb NAS. It does its job great but I'm limited to its 2tb. I'll need to upgrade to something more sizable soon.
The N2310 would do nicely, I would throw in a pair of 4TB WD Greens
