This might be posted somewhere else. In that case I apologies.

I'm eagerly awaing the release of the Sq Duet! When it comes out I certainly wan't to buy a NAS to support it. But what to buy?

I don't wan't to spend to much money on it, and probably won't be needing more than approx 100-200 GB. Any recommendations?

Look under 3rd party hardware. There are numerous posts on the topic.

From my read, the consensus best performer is the Thecus 5200Pro. I bought one based on those recommendations and am very pleased. Easy to set up and quite fast.

It is very good (I have one, getting a second soon) but i suspect is is way out of Rar's budget, especially if he only needs 100-200GB of storage.

Have a look at the Qnap TS-109, it is supposed to work pretty well.

Oops. I missed the budget and library size issue.

Limited budget + not much storage needed + requirement to feed album artwork to take advantage of controller interface may not add up a NAS as your best solution to be honest.
