Upgraded ReadyNAS Pro w/ 6 WD Red 4TB hard drives LOADED with 3000 movies and 1000 TV shows


Recommended Posts

I replaced the backbone of my media server and have this upgraded ReadyNAS Pro stocked with a dump load of movies, videos, and TV shows. When I got the NAS I immediately replaced the CPU with a Intel Core2 Quad and added the maximum amount of RAM possible (8GB). The thing has been a bulletproof workhorse. It'll come in RAID5 X-RAID 13+TB redundant volume built from 6 WD Red 4TB drives.


I'll probably end up throwing it up on eBay minus the media files, but who knows, maybe someone here wants an instant movie/TV collection of the gods. If it goes to eBay I'll wipe the volume, but this seems like a colossal waste - The collection is the result of over a decade of collecting. It has movies from all over the place, with a bunch of hard-to-find gems. I would literally go through greatest lists (cult classics lists, movies that never made it to DVD lists, horror lists, even RomCom lists, I didn't give a damn - all hunted down and added everything I came across that sounded interesting or had some cultural value.) The NAS has tons of horsepower to be the media server supporting your connected media player, home theater system.


We homeschool our kids, so there's even a ton of instructional videos, documentaries, and audiobooks not included in the above totals.


So if one of you hip cats can appreciate what's going on with this thing, shoot me an offer for just the hardware (I'll just leave the media on the volume, it doesn't have a value).


Drop me some questions.  If no one bites in a week, c'est la vie.


(Before you ask, I upgraded to a ReadyNAS 626X, 10TB Red drives and converted the collection and NAS to a Plex server)
