comment Asus N56VB-S4016H disk response time
Thanks for the answer. I understand reads/writes will be slower with a slower drive, but the access time of 10 to 60 seconds, while reading speeds being at 300kb to 1MB/s aren't explained by simply having a HDD of 5.4K RPM. I have a 5.4K RPM drive in my main desktop, and it has very low access times, and high reading speeds. Of course it's not as fast as my primary disk which is a Samsung 840 EVO, but it's still not suffering from these issues.

comment What can cause my PC's voltages to be off?
I'm sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant the motherboard manufacturer's software reports correct voltages (what should be +5V is is +5.03V, not much difference). I meant, what could be causing the major instability?

That software reports correct voltages. Do you know what could cause the symptoms?

comment What is the purpose of “link-only” Chrome apps?
@OrangeDog Any normal website can sometimes use those features as well. With an app you can develop specifically for Chrome. Without that you may have to support things such as IE, causing everlasting nightmares. Progressive enhancement to the rescue. Well, that too has enough issues to cause nightmares.

comment Two NAS devices or use a RAID-1
@techie007 As true as that is, it's not about RAID-1 being a backup or not. We don't need a backup, we need secured storage. A backup is one way to guarantee that most of the data is stored securely.

Synology was already the brand we were going for, and thank you for confirming what I expected :).

Thank you, the data on the NAS will be unique and specific to the NAS so you only have it stored in one place. (The main purpose of the NAS for us is to avoid duplicate data, and have it accessible everywhere :D).
