Hi,

I am looking to buy a QNAP TS-210. What I want really is to be able to run SqueezeServer adequately (of course), but also stream movies to my PS3. What I have currently is a Linksys NAS200, and well to put it mildly, it's shit.

I know QNAP have other newer NAS's (219 and 239), but I would think that the 210 would fit my needs. Am I right?

Does anyone have a TS-210 set up? Are you happy with it? How's the web access to SqueezeServer? Would you recommend it?

Thanks,
traflaz

The QNAP TS-210 runs Marvell 6281 800MHz processor so the response to the web interface will be slow. Have you looked at the VortexBox appliance? It's cheaper then the TS-210 but it has a full ATOM 1.6Ghz processor and 1GB of RAM. It also has SqueezeBox server pre-installed.

I would go for the Qnap TS-239, it will do just what you need and more. The response is instant with SC.

If you own a nas already, i would recommend a Sheevaplug (1,2 Ghz CPU, 512mb ram, 3 watt powerconsumption) to run SBS. There is a lot of ifo about it on the forum. You can leave the music and video files on the nas and stream them to your ps3 and squeezeboxes. It is far cheaper then buying a new nas with good specs.
