Tuesday tip: Before you buy that NAS…

When people are looking for ways to share data on their networks, they often run into a device called an NAS (Network Attached Storage). In contrast to external drives, these are actually file servers. (If an external drive is just storage, a file server is storage with a brain!) NAS are advertised as powerful and fast solutions to your data sharing needs, but is it completely true?

EconTechnologies, makers of the well known ChronoSync, has posted a great article on using an NAS with a Mac. Check it out before you get out your wallet.

    Hi, I’ve read the article at http://www.econtechnologies.com/chronosync/TN-CS-why-your-nas-is-slow.html and I noticed the date and the fact that WD and Seagate are advertising NAS for Mac. Is Econ’s article still up to date? If the problems with Mac still stand what should users look for in a XHD for backup?
