Thanks, I've just had no luck getting stuff to stream from my NAS over my network using an A-210, it's sporadic at best and I've lost interest in trying to figure this thing out everytime. So thought I'd try a local drive in something more reliable. (The only thing that consistently works is my pre-amp with DNLA.)
The other thing is my 8TB NAS is just about at capacity with the raid I'm using, so transferring to new drives and just using it as a back-up without raid will increase my over-all capacity.
I have a ton of Blu Ray & DVD concerts, maybe as many as I have movies so two drives would work well, one for movies and one for music, since I usually do one or the other..
So I'm thinking of trying the H1 because of front loading and hot-swap.
(It says to use low RPM "cool" drives in the literature I've seen so I guess the WD "green" drives would do the trick?)
