Hi - I'm now working (at home) from my 250Gb MacBook Pro (2013), and sorely miss the multiple HDs on my old Mac Pro. Trying to hang USB HDs from my laptop is getting rather frustrating, so I'm looking at getting a decent NAS – attached to my BT fibre router.
Ideally it would act as a Time Machine backup as well as accessible storage – and great if it can support my two children for automatic backups of their machines (one has a MacBook, the other a PC). I'd like a RAID 1 setup, with at least 2 x 3Tb of HD storage. Doesn't have to be madly fast - I'm not going use it as a video server, just music for my Sonos system. But would need to be able to access it online. (I do have a 2Gb Time Capsule from my old house, but it's not large enough for all my stuff now – but it could be used purely as a Time Machine backup for myself and my daughter. Can't help feeling it would be better to sell it to fund a decent NAS.)
What's my best bet? Synology? WD Cloud (the latest ones)? I'd rather not have to spend ages configuring it, and don't think I need any enterprise features. Thanks very much for any suggestions - need to be available in the UK...
