So few months back I acquired a DP 1.8GHz G5 and as of today it is now being retired. However, I am in the market for a home NAS solution. I already have the drives and I am considering a bunch of options...maybe someone can point me in the right direction. Use G5 as NAS and load it up with as many drives as I can Build a freeNAS system for $200 Buy a Synology NAS Using the G5 for NAS seems like a really big waste from a power perspective. My next option is building something myself, which I am leading towards just because I want to be in control of my hardware. Or, I can just buy a solution from Synology. Does anyone have experience with any of these? If so, what would you recommend? It will primarily be used for backups, 1080p movies (over 2TB), pictures, etc. I put together a build on Newegg using an Intel Celeron 1.1GHz mobo/cpu/gpu combo...really looking for low power consumption on this one. Opinions?
