    Network storage adapters

    Hey guys, I have a question. I'm thinking of starting a new mod where a component of it will actually be a small modded nas. It would only hold 1 3.5" drive. I know they have enclosures like that, and I might end up just buying one and ripping it apart, but do you know of anyplace that sells those adapter boards alone?

    Thanks.

    Off hand I don't recall seeing any of the boards sold separately. That doesn't mean they don't, lol I wasn't particularly looking for any. One benefit you will get from purchasing a NAS is the included software. I just got a hold of my first one recently (link) and simply love it, although they do have a bit of a steeper price tag. The ease of setting everything up is so much better than having to deal with setting up a full blown server. Plus, you can say "I went GREEN"-partially . The NAS will use considerably less power than a full server would.

    You can find some fairly cheap NAS enclosures at Newegg if you are looking to rip them apart. Saw two from $40 -80 but after that they jump up to $120 and climb.

    Hmmm, Yea, think if i want to make it for network i will have to buy one of those cheaper enclosures. Although I'm also considering just making it usb. It is meant to compliment a computer and it will always be on so i suppose theres really no point it making it network. Thanks anyway for your responces.
