NAS and External Drives
I'm thinking of buying a Synology NAS, diskless and rather than buy an internal HDD, just use my existing external drives plugged into the USB3.0 port in the back to share my media. Currently, my externals are connected to an old WDlive box but due to 100mbit LAN I can't transfer anything to these externals at more than 6MB/s. I was thinking that if I replaced the WDlive with the Synology I can get higher transfer speeds. I don't use the WDlive tv for anything other than as a SMB server since I have a shield.
Thoughts, is it possible to by a diskless NAS and then just plug in my externals to the back? Would that work?
