“It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”
I was thinking about getting a home NAS, but am not sure if I want to build one. It seems like they have come down enough in price that you can get one cheaper. What are peoples thoughts on buy vs build?
Also if I get one, I would be looking at 4 bay+ and RAID options beside 0.
I am still in the early stages of research on these so useful information from people who know more about them would be helpful.
