I'm looking for a wireless NAS that I can put in my attic? However I can only find a handful of options, each with their own pro's and con's.
The D-Link DSM-G600 enclosure sounds good, but you have to format the disk with their own propriety format, meaning you can't use the disk in other machines.
I've also looked at the Plextor solution and the Apple Time Capsule, but these both seem pricey.
Has anyone looked into this before, and what product/s did you end up going with?
I'm not sure about using a full blown PC as a NAS, i'd imagine it might be overkill? Won't it consume a fair bit of power and will be quite noisy? Most of the cheap PC's on ebay are all ex-corporate too, so not sure how robust they're going to be??
