Just bought a ReadyNAS Duo v2, found it quite cheap and for the price it seems to be the best NAS. Did a fair bit of reading about found myseld on the forum and thought I'd ask some questions to the experts.
I'm basically going to be using it to get rid of my desktop machine as it only serves as a machine to host my movies/music. So I will just be setting my NAS into Raid 0 (I have backups of my important info already) and loading it up.
The questions I have are:
I've bought it currently without any drives and just have 2 drives I'm going to put in and hope they work with it for now till I can afford to buy some bigger drives. Should I only buy drives from the compatibility list or am I risking getting something that isn't?
I read somewhere that the 3TB drives = slow transfer speeds. Is this true and would it have any effect on my setup for streaming 1080p/24 films to a Media Centre?
After looking at the compatability list, how important is the RVS?
Is there a recommended drive? (It must be 2tb or above)
Thanks in advance for your help.
