NAS recommendations/advice

Tue Apr 27, 2021 6:15 am

Hi everyone, I was hoping someone might give me a few tips regarding a NAS device.

I would like a NAS in my home/studio, for full backups of my studio cpu, and also as a music server to hold all my music files. (For listening, and with control from iPhone and IPad.
About a year ago I bought a WD mycloud EX2 ultra. I loaded it with a of couple of big drives, and things looked good. Unfortunately the software is beyond ridiculous, and effectively makes it useless. I’ve read numerous other reports that have people pulling their hair out with regards to it’s software functionality (lack of).

So wondering, is there any NAS that comes with a simple UI? I don’t need any fancy features, just a remote location for my ‘iTunes’ library, and back up destination for time machine. It sounds simple, ha! But it’s proven tricky for me.

Thanks so much
