It was $699 at Newegg.com a while ago http://slickdeals.net/f/5842810-NETGEAR ... -at-Newegg
Looks like the cheapest is around $900 now. Is this a hot price?

If you're using XRAID/XRAID2, you should be able to simply insert the new (to the NAS) drive and if you log into the web interface, you will be given options for how you would like the new drive to be used. Once you select an option, the migration will take place, but I believe your existing data will remain available. The process can take several days if you've filled up several TB's worth of data, but because the data remains available, you won't really notice. The new array volume available space will be viewable once the process has completed.nfnx wrote: ↑Makes a lot of sense thank you. I am fine with the size limitations as I will likely buy same size discs all the way through (at 3TB).
It says that it will automatically handle the redundancy setup by inserting a second disk - any chance I'd lose the data already on the first disc by doing so?
Anyone with experience with the readynas ?

It is...x86 platform with more power and ram. I guess it is "high performance" for home users. Dual core Atom with up to 3gb ram can let you run many services and serve several users at the same time with little to no performance hit.

I'm just noticing that ARM CPU's that the level of NAS I'm interested in has made a few big strides over the last year or so.

No problem at all using the D-Link or almost any NAS with your Mac, I am able to use on both my Mac & PCndiniwachojeff wrote: ↑I'm new to NAS' and am having some difficulty finding a clear answer, I hope someone can clarify for me. I'm looking for a 2-bay NAS to store my media that I can stream to our iMac, MacBook, Apple TV 2, Boxee Box, iphones and tablets. I'm interested in the D-Link products but am hearing they may not be compatible with Mac OSX. Is this the case? If so, what should I go for? The Synology DS212j has good reviews but is a bit on high end of what i want to spend. Any help is appreciated.
