QNAP 6-Bay Network Attached Storage (NAS) Enclosure
Shooting lots of photos and videos while on the road means we have a LOT of data to store. This 6-bay, hot-swappable Network Attached Storage (NAS) device (a more up-to-date version than the one we currently have) is invaluable to us. Use it as one giant drive… turn it into a RAID array… or have six separate drives. It’s your choice. Connecting it to our WiFi network means our laptops have access to everything we need… and back themselves up regularly. With photos and video files stored on it… we can watch whatever we want on our TV (no cable or satellite bills) through our AppleTV (actually, this upgraded unit has a built-in HDMI port, so you can play video directly to your RV WITHOUT the need for any extra devices).
NOTE: This unit is JUST an enclosure… you need to provide your own, blank disk drives to actually use it to store files. We have 6 of these Western Digital 4TB drives in ours!
