  1. Our Thecus W5810 review is now live: http://www.wegotserved.com/2016/01/22/review-thecus-w5810-windows-storage-server/ - it's not the prettiest, but it's the closest you'll get today to an off the shelf WHS replacement. 
  2. Forum Changes

    No, now that the forum is responsive, there are no plans to reintroduce tapatalk.
  3. NAS Opinions?

    I don't know them but you should find a range of retailers online that would fit disks for you. That said, installing disks in a NAS is very easy. Pull out a tray, four screws, insert tray and you're done.
  4. View desktop site on moblie.

    It's not a mobile site, per se. The forums are now responsive, so they scale to whatever sized screen you're using.  
  5. View desktop site on moblie.

    Hi, You can still get to recent threads/posts from the sidebar on the front page of the forums. Alternatively, click Unread Content, click Edit this Stream and you can tailor what you see in granular detail. The "Read Status" setting will be of particular interest, as you can toggle all content, or just show what you haven't seen.    
  6. Help with picking first server

    The new TS-251+ has an upgraded quad-core Celeron CPU that would easily perform the media tasks you need. It all comes down to whether you need something that's plug and play (QNAP) or a more open system on which you can install any Windows apps - with a little more complexity if you want to dig into the OS.  Take a look at the QNAP app store and you can see what's available: https://www.qnap.com/i/en/app_center/
  7. NAS Opinions?

    Check out our review of the new Synology DS216play - it's a great option. http://www.wegotserved.com/2015/11/25/review-synology-diskstation-ds216play/
  8. Adding a NAS?

    Hi Mark, No, no cloud service required. The NAS simply acts like any other computer on your network - just one that has a lot of storage. Once set up, all you need to do is point the Sonos app to the music folder stored on the NAS and it'll search for your music.  Here's a screenshot from my Sonos app, which points to a QNAP NAS I have on the network with my music library.  
  9. Help please - What type of NAS

    Hi there As a starting point, check out our NAS section here: http://www.wegotserved.com/category/home-servers/nas-reviews/ It would be useful to know your budget, but given that the family isn't so computer savvy, something reasonably simple would work well. Take a look at the following: Seagate Personal Cloud: http://www.wegotserved.com/2015/08/20/review-seagate-personal-cloud/ WD MyCloud: http://www.wegotserved.com/2014/03/06/review-western-digital-cloud-ex4/ Synology DS-115: http://www.wegotserved.com/2015/07/07/review-synology-diskstation-ds115-1-bay-nas-server/   HTH Terry
  10. Hi Can you please post the content of the walkthrough here? The link you posted is to a closed forum, requiring registration, so right now, this looks like link spam. Sounds exciting, but I'd be grateful if you could support our community too! Regards Terry

  13. Well done, Albert - really happy to hear you sorted out the issue
