I have video and audio files stored all over every computer on my home network. I want to centralize them in one spot and make it available to all the computers I have so I am thinking about getting a Synology NAS box. I have many 2T to 4T Sata III hard drives and 1T to 2T USB 2.0 drives on various computers that I have to put in it. A while back I removed 3 older AMD Athlon II X2 or X4 boxes with 4G of memory and running Win7 from my home network and replaced them (in whole) with new boxes. These older AMD boxes are sitting in the corner of my computer room doing nothing. My wife wants me to just hang one of them back on the network and put the hard drives in them and be done with it. And, I have to say, I can’t justify why I need to spend so much money for a NAS box when I already have these boxes available. I’m not looking for Cloud Storage, Web Server, Mobile Access or any like that. I just want central hard drive space available to all my computers and one of these older AMD boxes with Win7 will do that. So, I ask, is there anything a NAS box will do that I can’t do with one of these older AMD boxes. The older boxes are regular Sata and not Sata III but that shouldn’t be much of an issue in my home environment. Thanks for any help or info about this.
