I recently reviewed the ReadyNAS RN102, you can read my full review here. I have found it a great home Media Server and back up solution.

I am very happy with the ReadyNAS  RN102 and use it daily. It is a great media server for my home – I can back up movies, photos and music and then play them on my Smart TV, computers, Tablets and Smartphones, I love having access to my media library on all these devices without filling up their storage. With the ReadyCloud I can also access my media files when I’m away from home. I like that I am the one storing my files, rather than another company such as Apple for iCloud, plus after the initial outlay they are no monthly storage fees. It also means I can remove some of my media library from my laptop entirely to free up space – very important as my Macbook hard drive was pretty much completely full! It is also a great back up solution for my computer as it is set up with RAID1 so when it is used  for back up it puts a copy of every file on both hard drives, so if one fails my data is still protected. I have found it very user friendly and simple to set up and use, and there is a online forum which is a great source of additional information on how to use it.

READYNAS RN102 is diskless so you do need to add your own internal hard drives to use it, it is available from Amazon and many retailers, RRP $229.99
