NETGEAR ReadyNAS 102 2-Bay Network Attached Storage 1TB (RN10211D-100NAS)
While there is a lot to like about this NAS, there are a few things that just hold it back from being the very best budget option on the market. It has two bays and is a diskless model, which saves you money, but it only supports a maximum of 8TB of storage, which is less than some other ones out there. The bays can fit 2.5 or 3.5 inch drives and support both hard disk drives and solid state drives. There are a total of three USB ports on this NAS, one USB 2.0 port and two USB 3.0 ports. A single Gigabit LAN Ethernet port gives you solid network connectivity. It has 512MB of memory and a 1.2GHz processor, which keeps it running nice and fast, but not quite as well as a dual-core CPU.
