    Hi,

    My main backup destination (cracked dlink dns323 NAS) is getting strange with lots of input/output errors randomly deleting its own root/.ssh folders etc. :mad:
    I need a solution soon.

    My network sits with following devices:
    1 MacBook Pro
    1 MacBook White
    2 Iphone 4
    2 Airport Express
    1 AppleTV 2
    1 NAS wired to the Netgear router.

    Should i get an airport extreme with usb disc or an time capsule?

    Thanks!

    I concur. If your router doesn't need replacing, get a Synology NAS. Much more versatile than either solution and supports Time Machine backups.

    Which model specifically are you suggesting? Just clicking around the Synology website a little these look a little pricey as a Time Capsule replacement. Maybe I am looking at the wrong product line. The feature set does look nice though.

    For a basic and cheap NAS the DS110j + HDD will do sans RAID.

    Or a QNAP NAS. In my opinion Synology and QNAP are the two top brands for NAS.
