Routers With Built-in Hard Drives

Best Network Attached Storage for 2018

Rather than getting a dedicated NAS device and tacking it on to all your other devices, you can actually buy higher-end Wi-Fi routers that come with built-in hard drives. These devices function as your typical network router, but they also have all that fancy NAS server software and a built-in hard drive so you can get a NAS without adding yet another device to your household. Quite a few routers — especially higher-end ones — include USB ports.

Plug an external hard drive or even a USB flash drive preferably not a flash drive if you intend on using it heavily into the USB port. You can get much faster speeds if you use a USB 3. External hard drives can get a much larger speed improvement from USB 3. Rather than buying a pre-made NAS or attempting to use your router as a NAS, you can always buy a network-attached drive enclosure. These are dedicated NAS devices with the appropriate server software, designed to be connected to a network.

These can potentially be cheaper if you can get a decent deal on the hard drives. Or, if you already have some old internal hard drives lying around, you can easily turn them into NAS storage without spending too much. Why buy a new device when you can repurpose some old hardware you have lying around? Lastly, NAS devices also come with specs appropriate for small businesses or home office usage.

Most network attached storage devices also feature an ability to sync and back up data to another NAS at an off-site location. Natural disasters can occur at the most unexpected time and a NAS system helps provide secured copies of your crucial files.
