Is this thing a waste of money considering what little it does?

I can't speak for that particular device, but you should definitely have a NAS of some sort.

>>52493226
Not everyone needs a backup for their 5 TB porn collection.
>>
>>52493226
Why not just put some extra hdds in the computer? It's got networking... NAS just seems like the biggest scam...
>>
NAS is for losers.

Good luck salvaging your HDD's when your AMD hardware starts a fire.

>consumer nas
Literal botnet

>>52493824
discrete gfx cards are for losers and unproductive people. I'll be fine with my intel hd 4600
>>
No.
Because the point of that thing is to have LONG TERM off-line external storage that you can use to back-up game installations/music/video media/porn every month or few months, and leave it alone for a few months unless the need arises to take something from it.

It's literally the equivalent of buying books to keep a collection in the shelves, as opposed to e-books and shit. Sort of.

whats the point of having 3 HDDs with the same shit on it?

just buy 2 HDDs and put the same shit on it.
what are the chances of having TWO HDDs shitting themselves a the same time? 0

the 3rd (or more) HDD is just autism
lol

>whats the point of having 3 HDDs with the same shit on it?
2 HDDs to share the same shit in parallel in case 1 gives out, and 3rd for parity i assume.
But anon, that thing is a 2 drive storage WD where you insert the HDDs from the top if my memory is correct.

o, sry

Welcome to /g/, enjoy your stay.

I did this. I had to either buy a NAS (or san) or just add disks to my server and keep it always on. My server pulls 60W when idling so that wasn't bad. I just slammed a RAID10 array there and now I have pretty gud vm storage
