I'm in the process of updating all my techy bits and bobs and have decided on network attached storage mainly to stream music and video around the house via my sonos system, and equally to enable to access all my files /Music etc by mobile phone from anywhere in the world.

Has anyone found any drawbacks with NAS?  Ive researched systems and hardware and have a few in mind but would appreciate hearing any hidden pitfalls from the Horses mouth so to speak.

I think here is a drawback of NAS devices

 

If you aren't using a windows based mobile phone you may not be able to access your NAS device  remotely from anywhere in the world. I mean it’s still under development to work with Android, Blackberry or iOS but it’s okay with all operating system when you are on a home network as you have access to Wifi via NAS devices.

Something to research. Thanks for the tip.

I'd wait. NAS currently requires a fairly decent level of expertise, companies know this and although there are a few "user friendly" boxes available, better options should be available in the Autumn.

If you can't wait I'd recommend researching cloud based storage.
