    I'm looking to buy a NAS server for home and need at least 1 TB of usable storage.
    My budget is about 300.

    Any suggestions?

    What will you be using it for? I was thinking of getting one myself, just for my LAN.

    Mainly just for file storage.

    To address the following issues:

    1. I've had a billion USB's over the years and I'll either end up losing them, I forget to unplug it/leave it at home, they stop working or they're just incredibly slow. Personally, file storage on a USB just isn't safe.
    2. Cloud is an okay solution however large files take ages to upload and then download when needed. I need an offline solution that is easily accessible by everybody in my house hold.

    NAS is just a great on-prem solution for what I need and it opens me up to a few cool things for stuff like virtualisation. There are also all RAID jazz included.

    I use some of the wd mycloud home nas for media streaming and file saves but these are often more expensive and prone to update/hardware issues than other options out there but it is incredibly simple to get it up and running, so it really depends on your preference but if I ever change them out which I will do ill go for Synology as I have had a better experience with these as of late especially in the longevity area.

    This build along with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is used for my home NAS. Great for storing my photos, any videos and other things like running my Minecraft server. Many of the pc parts are extras I had around the house from my old builds. Works great!

    Holy, that's an over kill but gosh that price would be good if it included the cooler and mobo.

    You should check out that compatibility issue being thrown which I'm sure might just be nothing.

    It thinks the power supply isn’t compatible but it comes with a bracket that makes it compatible; pcpartpicker doesn’t account for small details like this, you’d just have to do your own research. But yeah the build was done over a year ago and it works great. I only spent like $300 when I build it since I already had most of the parts from previous builds of mine.
