I have both Linux and Windows computers on my network and would like a central file store for music and such. What I want is something I can plug an RJ-45 cable into and access from any computer. I would prefer something that doesn't use a proprietary file system, but am interested in any ideas.
My main concern is that the NAS turn off the drive or drives when idle. I would only have it being accessed a small amount of the time. I also would like something with 2 bays that supports RAID 0. And I would like it to be under $200 if possible, at least under $400. This is of course with no drives installed.
I am interested in any that have bittorrent clients, but it is not required.
