Does anyone make a NAS enclosure for a 2.5" drive?
Why would you want to run Network Storage off of a small drive?
get a 2.5" firewire enclosure unless you actually need a NAS.
I have a bare 2.5" drive layng around and I already have over 1.5TB of external HD plus a 120gb portable drive.
2.5" drives aren't designed to run continuously for months or years. (except for 2.5" SAS drives.)
there's the Asus WL-HDD,... if you can find one
you can just buy those Startech 2.5" to 3.5" brackets as an option
Relevance? Who said he was going to run it continuously?
NAS implies that it is just going to be an appliance connected to the network running continuously. it doesn't have to be, but like most home networking gear it probably won't be turned off.
I don't think its going to hurt the drive to sit there, plugged in. It won't be active if its not being used.
yeah, i guess if they have the NAS spin down when not in use. even the hard drive in my cable box DVR spins down when i'm not using it.
IF is the operative word there. The NAS I had didn't spin down the drive at all.
Which one? He shouldn't get that one.
