If I wanted to implement a NAS in my house, on which I could keep all my large files and backups, do I need to be on a domain? Ideally I could just plug this into my wireless router and be able to access it as if it was a drive on my PC, like instead of C:\ it'd be D:. Is this possible? If so, can somebody recommend a device that I could use?
It's 1TB with USB or Ethernet connection, and it's basically plug and play. Power it on and connect it and it shows up as a network drive.
I'm in the same boat, but my requirements are a bit different:
The only one I came up with that has decent reviews is LinkStation Duo
Pros: seems like they know what they're doing. Good reviews
Cons: bang/buck. When run in mirrored mode, you "lose" half of the capacity.
