Default looking for a NAS

Hello all,

I'm looking for a NAS with the following features, and i was hoping you could help me find one. I've already looked at the IOMEGA media drive, and the WD World Edition, if you have better suggestions let me know!

- At least 1TB storage space
- Automatic/ continuous backup of computers on network
- iTunes server compatable
- Remote access (not offered on iomega if i'm not mistaken)
- high read/write speeds
- security features (password protected, etc)

I'm not exactly up on the latest technology for these, but it seems the WD and the iomega are the front runners? according to google search at least...

Thanks a lot for the help everyone!


oh! forgot to mention, i'm hoping to keep it under $200, but a little over won't kill me

Intel i7 930, Asus P6X58D Premium, 6GB Corsair RAM, EVGA GTX 460 GPU, 1TB WD Black HDD, 27" LG Monitor, Thermaltake V3 Black, LG Blueray drive, Cooler Master hyper 212 Plus Heatsink (push pull), WD Mybook USB 3.0

Default Re: looking for a NAS

I personally couldn't find a NAS that met all my needs and for the price. I ended up buying a cheap Mini-ITX board hooked it up to a Micro-ATX PSU and a 1tb HDD. Put Linux on it, and there it was. A nice NAS for under $200.
PC: AMD Phenom 9950 2.6ghz Quad Core, ATI Radeon HD 5770, 8gb DDR2 RAM
Phone: Apple iPhone 5s 64gb (jailbroken)
