The Netgear ReadyNAS RN214 4-bay diskless personal cloud network-attached storage device is down to $249.99 on Amazon. That’s $50 off its street price and the lowest it has gone since March.
A network-attached storage device is like a computer that only connects to your network and is always online. You don’t use a keyboard and mouse to browse it, just a folder on a different computer. With several hard drives, up to four in this case, and the minimum amount of power necessary to run it, you can keep all your movies, music, and files (including backups of laptops and other computers) safe and highly accessible.
The Netgear RN214 has a 1.4GHz quad-core Cortex A15 processor, 2GB of RAM, supports both 2.5 and 3.5 inch storage drives, and supports 1080p streaming and transcoding. It has anti-virus built in, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and an advanced file system for complete data protection. The UI can store your data in the cloud, and apps available on PC, Mac, and smartphones let you access it and secure it from anywhere. It comes with a three-year warranty as well.
The NAS is diskless, so you’ll want to add some high capacity hard drives (up to 32TB max).
