    16TB, 4 Seagate enterprise drives in a USB-3.0 storage box. This is hooked up to my router, so all of my networked PCs "see" it as USB Storage.
    5.6TB of Movies, thousands of Photos, still lots of storage room left on it.

    I'm running an Ubuntu mini-ITX box in a Fractal Design Node-804 with 8 2TB WD RED NAS Drives.

    I'm using ZFS RAIDZ2 resulting in a 10-12TB Storage Volume.

    It's visible on my Network via NFS and SAMBA.

    I use it for Media Storage (365 Movies & Growing in .m4v, 6 or 7 seasons of various TV Shows in .m4v, a few thousand photos, and probably 2 or 300 MP3's). I have also used it as a proxy server for when I'm traveling out of country.

    Very nice setup bro. Looks like I need to step my NAS game up. Mine is nothing like what you guys are running.

    Thanks! It's overkill in many ways. But I had 4TB and was filling up fast, so when I upgraded it (since it's such a pain in the ass to copy multiple TB of data to backup, then restore it to the new array), I decided that it was going to be big enough I wouldn't have to upgrade it before I win that bet and HDD's are DEAD...lol

    The biggest problem it has is that the MB doesn't support ECC, which is bad Juju when you're running a software RAID like ZFS...but the selection of Mini-ITX or uATX motherboards with 6 SATA Ports and 1-2 PCI-E Slots is minimal...so I'm living dangerously with regular RAM! LOL

    So Moral of the story is if you decide to one-up me, make sure you get a nice board that supports ECC with an i3 or low end Xeon, and you'll be in the lead!!! LOL

    So not winning that bet.

    Copying 4Tb of crap would be a huge pain in the arse. I think I will follow your suggestions. thanks for the tips.

    Ok, I decided to go with a qnap 221 to get me started and to learn some of the things I need to and I have to say it is a lot less plug and play than I expected. Building a freenas box was the alternative but I thought I was not ready

    Threw a couple of RE4 drives in to start me off but drag and drop it is not..... at least, I haven't found that yet

    Threw a couple of RE4 drives in to start me off but drag and drop it is not..... at least, I haven't found that yet
    Yeah, I was going to recommend FreeNAS as an alternative if you were building your own, it's supposed to be pretty easy, and it's based on FreeBSD (or one of the BSD variants), so it's pretty stable.

    Those RE4's are a good choice, but the Reds would probably work just as well for you, and be a bit cheaper (if you buy more drives). They both support TLER (which is critical for RAID).

    Thing with QNAP and the other "NAS" boxes is the limited CPU. If you want to run something that transcodes on the fly, PLEX for example, the NAS boxes are a bit limited. But, if you want to use it for generic network storage, I'm sure it will be fine!

    Nothing more than a 3TB LaCie Porsche hooked to my router under samba for me. it works for now but filling up fast, about 800gigs of movie and another 35 gigs of music, 80gigs of photos just because we backed up all of our old b/w photos.
