So, i just got my rMBP and i'm more than happy with it. Its screen is amazing and its much faster than my previous 2010 13" MBA. Now i need to upgrade my storage since all i've got is a 1TB USB 3.0 drive. I was considering buying a TC and using it as a media center for my rMBP and my (future) jailbroken ATV3, but it seems to be a bad decision as the TC isn't a fast media center. After that I considered buying a Synology DS212J with 2x 2TB drives. It would be good to use Raid 1 and have everything backed up, but the price is high. Around 200USD for the DS212J and more 250-300USD for 2x 2TB drives. Then I started looking for cheaper alternatives. WD has the WD My Book Live 3TB for 200USD and for 180USD I can get the Seagate GoFlex Home 3TB. Both doesn't offer any kind of Raid, but can do the Job as a Media Server. Also, there's the WD My Book Duo thats almost the same as the My Book Live, except by the fact that it comes with 2 HDD, allowing me to backup my stuff. All the three have Ethernet ports and would be connected directly to my router (an old Linksys WRT320N). Another option I have is to upgrade my Router. I've been researching and the ASUS Black Diamond line seems to have extreme fast transfer speeds, while providing USB ports (in some models, even 2 USB ports). If getting one of these, I could just buy a bigger USB drive and share it using the router. The main problem is that they don't come with USB 3.0 ports, and it might be a problem for me to stream 1080p video, or not? Automatic backup is cool, but not necessary since I can keep my most important files manually backed up to my current USB drive. What would you do? Buy a Time Capsule? Buy a true NAS like Synology or QNAP? Buy a cheap Ethernet drive? Buy a new Router and a bigger USB Drive? Buy a new router and a Ethernet drive? Why? Thanks to all!
