Ooookk!

Check out this one then, SANS Digital.

Good reviews as well. Little expensive. But, I think you will like it.

The one I have is this one

QNAP TS-469-PRO-US Diskless System 4-Bay, All-in-One NAS - Newegg.com

Absolutely love it, the software is pretty amazing also.

But I also have this one Rosewill RSV-S4-6G SATA 150 & 300 4 x Hot-Swappable 3.5" Drive Bays RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 5+spare, Spanning and JBOD (via Bundled RR622 RAID Controller Card) - Newegg.com , cheap but it works.

If you don't want your drive to go to sleep there's a little script you can install called NoSleepHD, work's like a charm

Anyone have any idea where I can download this? I've tried this link and several others and nothing happens. No download, no nothing.

Not sure why, it works for me.

I'll attach it for you, then remove it after you get it,

It might be because I have the site's cookie blocked or an overzealous anti-malware program is blocking it, although there normally would be a popup of some sort saying it was blocked. Weird! Whatever the problem, I now have it downloaded. Thanks!
